Awake Cosmetics Scalp Scrub is a natural hair growth support with root stimulating hibiscus flowers, organic peppermint and coconut oil! This haircare treatment is specifically formulated to improve scalp health and promote conditions for optimal hair growth. A healthy scalp is the terrain on which your hair will flourish, yet it is so often overlooked when it comes to our haircare routines. When your scalp is balanced, unclogged and stimulated, you are setting the stage for optimal hair growth and condition.
A quick Google search for “Hibiscus for Hair Growth” will reveal a plethora of results and YouTube videos. But according to a clinical in-vivo study, Hibiscus flower and leaf extract has been scientifically proven to stimulate hair growth in animal trials when applied topically. Hibiscus is also naturally acidic and reduces greasiness and excess build up.
Organic Coconut Oil
As well as being a natural DHT blocker, coconut oil is brimming with essential fatty acids that deliver a healthy dose of moisture, penetrating the hair shaft and helping to repair stressed hair strands. Coconut oil also has mild antipruritic, antiseptic and keratolytic (compounds that break down the outer layers of thick skin) properties. It is widely recommended for the treatment of scaly skin disorders of the scalp such as psoriasis, eczema, seborrhoeic dermatitis and dandruff.
Organic Peppermint Leaf Oil
Aside from smelling delicious, Peppermint oil is one of the best natural ingredients for stimulating hair growth and keeping the scalp happy and healthy. Studies show that applying peppermint essential oil topically increases the depth, size, and number of hair follicles.
Organic Castor Seed Oil
There is plenty of anecdotal evidence that castor seed oil encourages hair growth, but we like to focus more on its potent moisturising and gloss-giving properties. Castor seed oil is a thick, almost sap-like oil that penetrates and protects the hair strands, leaving them with a beautiful shine. It’s high in ricinoleic acid, which helps balance the pH of your scalp, and restore it from damage caused by harsh ingredients (like Sulphates, SLS).
Himalayan Pink Salt
A scalp scrub just wouldn’t be scrubby without some beautiful Himalayan Pink Salt! Himalayan pink salt is not the same as sea salt, which is nice but can be contaminated by ocean pollution. Instead it’s a rock salt mined from huge salt crystal protrusions in the Khewra Salt Mines of Pakistan. All true Hymalayan Pink Salt comes from these salt mines. They are one of Pakistans most esteemed resources and largest natural exports. Pink salt improves scalp health by exfoliating, loosening and dissolving product build up and dandruff as well as stimulate circulation, which is what sluggish hair follicles need. It also absorbs excess oil and moisture, which helps prevent dandruff in the future.
The non-foaming treatment may require a double shampoo if your hair is fine or non-porous. If you follow with conditioner after shampooing, it is recommended that you apply to the ends only as your roots will be nourished from the coconut oil.

We recommend using the Hibiscus-Mint Stimulating Root Care twice a week, pre-shampoo. Wet your hair and squeeze out excess water. Scoop up a dollop (up to 1 Tbsp) of scrub into your palm. Apply in sections; front, top, sides. Gently massage onto your scalp for 2 minutes, using a circular motion. You may find it easier to flip your head over to get to the back if you have long/thick hair. Rinse with warm water and shampoo thoroughly.
