Your scalp needs just as much love as your locks.
FORGET BRUSHING 100 TIMES A DAY — HEALTHY SCALPS JUST NEED A WEEKLY SCRUB
Caring for the face and décolletage is a given, but the skin above the face needs your love and attention, too.
“Exfoliating your scalp is super important as you’re removing dead skin cells, dandruff, excess oil and any hair products that have built up over time, making hair dull and flat,” says Anthony Nader, scalp scrub enthusiast and owner of Sydney’s RAW salon.
The cardinal rules of scrubbing apply: no micro-beads or abrasives. Celebrity stylist Jen Atkin opted for a sugar base with probiotics and coconut oil in her Ouai scrub, and IGK’S is a mix of walnut oil and apple cider vinegar for a detox treatment.
A scrub can also quiet irritated, flaky scalps. 3’” More Inches’ blend of essential oils reduces dandruff and inflammation for a happy scalp that thanks you with super-shiny strands.
