Face and body scrubs are a staple in many skincare routines, but scalp scrubs may not be as common. Our scalp can be one of the most overlooked parts of our bodies – after all, it’s hiding underneath all that hair! However, it needs just as much love as the rest of our skin. When it comes to hair health, it all starts at the top (AKA the scalp!). So, if you’re dreaming of shiny, luscious, lengthy locks, it’s time to consider introducing a scalp scrub into your hair routine.
So, what exactly is a scalp scrub?
Whether you’re sweating it up in the gym or piling those hair products into your locks, our scalps go through a lot on a daily basis. Dirt, sweat, residue, and product can all build up on the scalp, causing it to remain in less than tip-top shape. While shampoo and conditioner go a long way in keeping your hair clean, our scalps often need something more gritty. Enter, the scalp scrub. A gritty, exfoliating formula designed to remove dryness, excess oil, and product build-up.
How do I use a scalp scrub?
Luckily, they are *super* easy to use! All you have to do is wet your hair and divide it into sections (before using shampoo and conditioner). Apply a small amount of your scalp scrub directly to your hairline and massage it all around your scalp with your fingers. Make sure you rinse your hair thoroughly! Your scalp will be left feeling nourished and soothed. Limit your use of scalp scrubs to once per week, in order to avoid over-scrubbing.
Is a scalp scrub right for me?
Most of us can benefit from introducing a scalp scrub into our hair routine, but they are particularly helpful if you are experience dryness or flakiness. If you love your haircare products, chances are you might also be experiencing quite a bit of product build-up. Scalp scrubs are great for removing excess product, as well as dirt and sweat if you’re a regular exerciser. No matter what your hair concern is, a scalp scrub is great for a little TLC. It’s a good way to pamper yourself, while also ensuring that your locks remain happy and healthy!
