What You Need To Detox Your Scalp

We often forget to give proper care to our scalp, which is where healthy hair begins.

Scalp care should never be left out. With pollution, styling products and dry shampoo leaving behind residue even post-shower, your scalp is in need of a good detox. Here are the products that will get the job done.

WHY:

Among other things, mousse, powder, and hairspray will clog up hair follicles over time, limiting the growth of new strands. Besides hair loss, build-up is also linked to scalp irritation and imbalance, dandruff, growth of odour-causing bacteria, itchiness, eczema, and psoriasis.

WHEN:

Do a detox at least once a week if you regularly use dry shampoo or styling products. When your scalp is well taken care of, you’ll enjoy healthier – and shinier – hair!
