How much time do you spend on your hair? Okay, the same issue now about your scalp. Yup, think so. But you certainly should show some respect for the skin on your head — and scalp scrubs are a perfect way to prevent the grime and dirt from messing with your hairs.
They are super-simple to use: wash your hair before shampooing and drying, section it and then add a small amount of scrub directly with your fingers to the segment (not your head), says Justin Anderson, celebrity colorist and creative director of dpHue. Repeat around your scalp five or six times, massage and then rinse well. Only make sure to confine scalp scrubs to a routine of self-care once a week.
There’s a great scalp scrub for you according to your exact hair issue. This is our pick.
