Unless you've been under a rock somewhere you know that…
You exfoliate your face, knees, elbows, feet…….
Are you exfoliating your scalp??
Exfoliation, regardless of where it occurs, promotes cell turnover by removing dead, dull cells and uncovering glowing youthful skin.
It also detoxifies the skin, improves product penetration and reduces sun damage and fine lines.Are you exfoliating your scalp? You should be, it promotes hair growth. Click To Tweet
As far as the scalp is concerned, the process of removing dead cells also removes buildup and clears clogged hair follicles, thus paving the way for hair growth.
So, are you ready to scrub your scalp? Here’s an easy DIY recipe:
- 3 tbsp brown sugar
- 2 tbsp coconut/olive oil
Mix well, apply to scalp and massage gently with the pads of your fingers. DO NOT SCRATCH. Rinse thoroughly to remove all residue and follow with your normal shampoo regimen.
