A while ago, I have attended a beauty event in London. I am not sure which one it was but it was for curly hair, makeup, fashion, plus other related things. Anyways, one of the stand really got my attention as it was performing scalp analysis. They were assessing the health of your scalp and telling you if it was dry, oily… A lady mentioned scalp exfoliation to get rid of the dead skin.
The first things that came to my mind was “Is it not what shampoo are made for?” “Why would you exfoliating your scalp?” “Is it going to damage my scalp or/and hair?” It left me a bit confused, so of course, I had to do a little research.
What I found out is that exfoliators are excellent for itchy scalp and to get rid of flakes.
Its a must have for people who over-wash their hair, since over-washing dries the scalp which in return increases the overproduction of oil. So exfoliating can decrease the need to wash your hair so much.
Exfoliators promote hair growth as well. How? By simply massaging the scalp and removing all the dirt from your scalp.
Here are few exfoliators available on the market.
