Do you need a scrub?

Have you ever seen exfoliating products for your scalp and not known if you should be using one? Generally speaking, if you’re prone to scalp issues such as excess oil, dandruff, irritation and even hair loss, you’d be aware that you need to use products specifically created for your scalp.

Product build up, external pollutants and dead skin cells are the culprits to clogging your pores and resulting in an unhealthy scalp. By giving your scalp a deep cleanse with an exfoliating scalp treatment you purify and stimulate your scalp, resulting in rebalancing of your natural sebum, minimised build up and revitalizing your hair starting from the root.   

How often you use your exfoliating scrub will depend on your scalp health and your product choice. Be sure to use as per the product instructions as their intensity and can vary and while some are suitable every wash, others may only be recommended weekly. Using salon quality products and backing up your exfoliating treatment with a targeted range, depending on your needs, will yield the best results.

PRO TIP: Exfoliating scrubs aren’t just for those with scalp woes, they are great as a pre wash for detoxifying your hair and scalp, allowing your following shampoo and treatments to deeply penetrate without the worry of product build up (we know how much we love dry shampoo!).
