Beat flaky scalps, winter itchies, and scalp buildup with this gentle, effective, and healing scrub. While formulated with the scalp in mind, Thriae works great for the skin on the face and the rest of the body, too!
The Thriae were a trinity of pre-Hellenic Aegean bee goddesses, sometimes called bee maidens or bee nymphs. Like many trinities, each of the three had their own special gifts, and in the same turn, Thriae Scalp Scrub has three key benefits:
- Exfoliation: Thriae uses organic brown sugar as a gentle way to scrub away buildup and flakes from the scalp. It is more gentle, and more effective, than salt.
- Moisture: Honey is a natural humecent, meaning that it helps draw moisture inward. The natural oils help restore the natural scalp oils lost by cleansing and also helps keep the moisture gained by the honey in the scalp.
- Healthy Scalp Promotion: Honey is has natural antibiotic and antifungal properties and this is coupled with the many benefits of the essential oils. While detailed fully below, they include promoting hair growth, promoting scalp circulation, reducing itching, PH balancing, and scalp soothing.
Free of: parabens, silicones, synthetic fragrances, and artificial coloring agents.
Directions & Storage
Directions: Apply to damp or towel-dry hair. Sopping wet hair will dissolve the scrub faster than you want, and if your scalp is too dry then the abrasion will be too harsh. Try Thriae while soaking in a relaxing hot bath.
Scoop out a bit of scrub and work it down to the scalp with your fingers. Don’t worry if it gets on your hair, it won’t hurt it at all! Work the scrub into the scalp using a small, gentle circular motion, adding more scrub as needed. When the scrub has dissolved, let it sit for a few minutes on your scalp so the beneficial properties of the honey and Triple Moon Oil can work their magic. Got leftovers on your hands? Work it into your face too, just be careful not to get it in your eyes, nose or mouth. It won’t kill you, but it isn’t a good idea to ingest anything with essential oils. Yes, it smells sweet and yummy- don’t eat it!
Water alone may not be enough to get the residue from the scrub out, so you can use your favorite method of washing to remove it. As you rinse, be sure to work your fingers at the scalp, ensuring that water can rinse things clean. You may notice you shed a few more hairs than normal, this is expected and nothing to worry about! The hairs that were ready to fall out in the next day or two just got worked out a bit sooner with the scalp massage, you’re not losing any hair you weren’t going to anyway! And that’s it! Enjoy this whenever your scalp could use a little extra attention!
Storage: Store-bought beauty products contain synthetic ingredients to hold mixtures together. Thriae , not having these synthetic ingredients, may separate. If it has separated, simply stir until fully blended. If Thriae has become hard, scoop out with a butter knife and gently crumble it in your hands before using. Thriae Scalp Scrub has a shelf life of two years unrefrigerated, longer if kept cool.
