How many of you exfoliate your scalp just as you do with the rest of your body? Scalp exfoliation is just as important as body exfoliation. It helps cleanse and detox your scalp, reduce dandruff ad stimulate hair growth. There are a lot of scalp scrubs available in the market but they often are quite expensive. Here is an easy homemade sugar scalp scrub recipe you could try instead:
