Adding a scalp scrub to your hair care routine is one of the simplest and most effective ways to keep your hair looking healthy. Not only does it help remove product build-up, dirt, and debris from the scalp; it also helps stimulate blood flow to the follicles and promote hair growth. Plus, it’s just as important to scrub your scalp as it is to condition and moisturise it.
When should you add a scalp scrub to your routine? As often as every other week is ideal for most people, though frequency may vary based on hair type and lifestyle. For example, if you have an oily scalp or use lots of styling products daily, then weekly scalp scrubs could be beneficial.
No matter how often you decide to scrub, there are a few things to keep in mind. First, it’s important to use a gentle exfoliant that won’t irritate or damage the scalp and cause further issues. Second, make sure to massage the scrub into your scalp in circular motions for at least one minute. This will help to ensure that the scrub is thoroughly worked into the scalp and follicles. Finally, it’s essential to finish with a nourishing conditioner or leave-in treatment to keep your hair hydrated and protected.
Whether you have dry, oily, normal, or combination skin, adding a scalp scrub to your hair care routine can help keep your hair looking and feeling its best. So take the time to give yourself an exfoliating massage today - you won't regret it!
