Default Second day refresher for scalp?

Does anyone know a good cg refresher for oily scalps? Just something good to rub in that cleans and leaves a good scent. Or even a recipe? Thanks!

Oscar Blandi dry shampoo (the actual powder, not the spray version) works well AND smells fantastic. Sephora carries it. There's even a small travel size you can buy to try it out.

If you're in a pinch and/or on a budget, baking soda works well for freshening up the roots, but it doesn't add any scent.

I've had better luck with both of these than I have with plain old cornstarch baby powder, but that can also be a good stand-in.

Whatever you do, don't put baby powder in your hair then attempt to comb it out. Talk about static electricity!! I could HEAR my hair crackling!

ive made a recipe that i use as a growth booster. it stimulates and clenses as well. i use argan oil, as a base, but if you dont use it any light oil will do, then i add a few drops of rosemary and peppermints oil, and my last batch i added evening primrose oil as well. i rubb this in my scalp every night before i go to bed. it leaves a nice tingling sensation and really feels fresh and clean after.

In regards to growth. Is there a significant increase in growth? And do you recommend tea tree oil in place of the peppermint . I'm looking for a mixture of oils that will help with the health of my scalp and promote growth. I'm currently using a mixtures of almond and jojoba oil

tea tree is good as well, ive used it before. i think it really does help with my growth, i really notice that it shoots out. i use it at night cause hair grows slower at night. i really recemmend using rosemary oil, its a great stimulater, but only use a few drops cause its really strong.
