Our scalp needs almost as much cleansing, moisturizing, and exfoliating as our faces do. Dirt, oil, and product buildup can clog up the pores in your scalp. Healthy hair starts with a healthy scalp. There are many exfoliating scalp products that slough off the dead skin and grime for you, but they are very pricey. However, the best part of a scalp exfoliation is how simple and cheap. Just raid your kitchen cupboards for a natural scalp scrub.
Sugar helps to gently exfoliate the scalp, provide moisture and increase circulation to the hair follicle. Mix a spoonful of sugar to your shampoo and gently massage it into your scalp using your fingertips in a circular motion and rinse thoroughly.
The sugar will gently exfoliate the scalp, removing any dead skin cells or build-up of product or dirt. It helps to deep clean your scalp and prevent against oily roots and promotes healthier hair. It’ll also wash away any dead skin, which leaves your scalp more exposed so the conditioner can get to it easier and leave it hydrated.
If your scalp is prone to build-up, make it a part of your routine to exfoliate once a week.
