We’re all aware that we should exfoliate our skin on a regular basis in order to keep it looking bright, clear and even, but did you know that you should also be exfoliating your scalp too? Exfoliating your scalp using a scalp scrub is the first step towards achieving gorgeous, healthy hair and here’s how to use one.
Why Should I Use A Scalp Scrub?
Exfoliating your scalp using a scalp scrub is crucial for achieving and maintaining gorgeous, healthy hair. Exfoliating your scalp can help to remove the build up of oils, products and dead skin cells from the scalp. By removing this build up from the scalp, it allows the ingredients from your hair products to effectively penetrate the hair.
Scalp exfoliation can also encourage healthy hair growth as it increases the circulation to the scalp’s blood vessels and the healthy renewal of skin cells.
The Christophe Robin Cleansing Purifying Scrub works to combat scalp irritation and itchiness by removing the build up of impurities from the scalp. The blend of naturally exfoliating sea-salt stimulates micro-circulation, assisting with the body’s innate renewal system while providing long-lasting moisture for a more refined, cleansed scalp.
How Often Should I Exfoliate My Scalp?
How often you use a scalp scrub depends entirely on your hair type, but less is definitely more to prevent irritation and drying out the scalp. It’s advisable to incorporate a scalp scrub into your haircare regime around once a week, however, if you suffer from excessively oily roots, then it can be used up to twice a week.
How To Use A Scalp Scrub
- Start by wetting your hair and scalp in the shower.
- Take around one tablespoon of your scalp scrub into a wet scalp and work into a lather.
- Use your fingertips to massage the scalp scrub for a few minutes, using medium pressure to ensure effective exfoliation.
- Follow on with your favorite shampoo and conditioner for truly cleansed locks.
