Deep-clean once a week
A HEALTHY SCALP is the base of great hair, and this weekly treatment helps keep it clean. ‘Mix a teaspoon of granulated sugar (two teaspoons for thick hair) into your blob of shampoo and rub it along your scalp,’ says Fusco. ‘The sugar gently exfoliates and gets rid of dirt, oil and product debris, and it’ll rinse right out with your shampoo.’ If you use a lot of styling products your hair tends to fall flat, so use a clarifying shampoo once a month. ‘It’s more concentrated than regular shampoo and has polymers that grab on to build-up and lift it away,’ says Trygstad.
