Signs You Need a Davines Hair & Scalp Detox

Wondering if you need a detox? Excellent question. There are most definitely signs that you just might! Here are some of the signs:

Well water can contain minerals like calcium, sodium and magnesium. ... Trace elements and heavy metals, lead, iron just to name a few. Your scalp absorbs even more than the skin on the rest of your body.

  • You feel like your scalp is itchy or flaky — An accumulation of too substances (even dead skin cells, an entirely natural and unavoidable phenomenon) can cause the scalp to itch; and worse, giving in to the itch can cause residue to shed in flakes, like dandruff.

  • Your hair gets dirty very quickly — It's simple: Excess oil makes hair greasy.
