Exfoliation For Hair Is The New Hair Care Trend – Let’s Know Why

“The skin is easily exfoliated but the scalp is also just like the skin that has a mass of hair and it needs the same care. By exfoliating, the scalp remains healthy, and hair roots get stronger. The deposits of various styling products, shampoos, et cetera get stuck onto the scalp, which needs exfoliation to take the residues totally out,” says beauty expert and celebrity aromatherapist, Dr Blossom Kochhar.

Not only scrubbing clears up the residues and dirt but also is a brill way to improve blood circulation. Besides, our lovely people, the cherry on top : It’s the best and most rejuvenating way to relieve all the stress

Scrub Scrub Scrub!! It’s Time For Your Hair

You might have heard about scalp scrubbing but have you tried it yet? 

“Scalp scrubs are just like facial scrubs. These can be granule-based or can be gel-based. Its core purpose is to deeply cleanse the scalp. So, it is suitable for any kind of hair, be it Indian or European or something else. 

Indians almost have all the varieties of hair types like from thin to thick hair, curly to straight, soft to hard, depending upon the genes and communities they belong to.

How Scalp Scrubs Work?

Scalp scrubs are the detox content that our hair needs and summers are the most appropriate time to make that addition to your beauty routine.

“Scalp scrubs work to a remarkable extent. The scalp produces natural oil that helps itself to remain moisturised and promote hair growth. Scalp scrubs wash away the residues, dandruff, dry skin flakes and maintain the oil secretion level on the scalp,” says Kochhar.

Our scalp may look hard on the outside but it needs conscious care too just like our own skin and scrubbing too hard on the scalp may not be the best thing.

Dr Kochhar explains, “Scalp scrubs can harm if they are too abrasive, done very frequently or vigorously. Use gentle scrubs to exfoliate the scalp. Excessive exfoliation can worsen the condition and can lead to irritation, itching, more dryness, and severe hair fall.”

A Quick Understanding About The Intricacies Of Scalp Scrubs

Did you know, it’s a famous Korean beauty practice to keep scalps clean and naturally moisturised?

“Once a week is enough if someone is doing it regularly. Those who are planning to start or have scalp problems can do it twice a week for some time and then later can take it as once a week-course of action. Scalp exfoliation should be done for a maximum time of up to 10 minutes,” says Dr Kochhar.

Just in case to ensure that exfoliation doesn’t make your scalp or hair dry, give a natural boost of moisturisation to it after a wash.

“After exfoliation, use a mild natural shampoo to rinse it off. Apply aloe vera gel on the scalp and massage with it gently all over. Leave it on for a few minutes and rinse it off. Let the hair dry naturally. This will work as the healing process for the scalp and hair,” suggests Dr Kochhar.

It’s time to show some deserving love to your scalp!
