Oily scalp with dan­druff? Try a scrub

Herworld (Singapore) - - CHERYL W SPECIAL -

If you have an oily scalp and dan­druff, you may need a hair scrub, says Sam Chok, hair­styl­ist at Pas­sion Hair Salon. Be­fore sham­poo­ing, sec­tion your hair the way you do when ap­ply­ing a scalp serum, then mas­sage the scrub di­rectly onto your scalp. Use it once a week to re­move im­pu­ri­ties, con­trol oili­ness and un­clog hair fol­li­cles. Word of cau­tion, though: A hair scrub is not nec­es­sary for those with a nor­mal scalp (a deep-cleans­ing sham­poo will suf­fice) and should be com­pletely avoided by those who suf­fer from scalp con­di­tions like dry­ness, itch­i­ness and red­ness, says Sam.

L’Oc­c­i­tane Aro­ma­cholo­gie Re­vi­tal­iz­ing Fresh Cleans­ing Scrub ($40) puries with plant-based vine­gar and sea salt, and lifts your senses with es­sen­tial oils like mint, grape­fruit and thyme.

The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea Re­fresh­ingly Pu­ri­fy­ing Cleans­ing Hair Scrub ($29) is sil­i­cone-free and has a blend of Ja­panese green tea, mint men­thol, salt crys­tals and honey to stim­u­late cir­cu­la­tion in the scalp, while elim­i­nat­ing chem­i­cal residue from hair prod­ucts.

L’Oreal Paris El­seve Phy­to­clear 1 Min Pre­sham­poo Pu­ri­fy­ing Scrub ($15.90) has an­tibac­te­rial tea tree es­sen­tial oil and al­mond seeds to thor­oughly pu­rify and re­fresh the scalp.
