Benefits of scrubbing your scalp

I'm always one to try new products - just anything to get better hair, right? I've tried almost everything (I think). Just for fun, i'd research ways for shiny, healthy hair without overdoing it on the products.

So, here is what I've realized - scrubbing your scalp is great and here's why:

  1. Your cleanse your scalp from the buildup and dead skin. Just like exfoliating your face removes dead skin, it's pretty much the same for your scalp.

  2. By cleansing your scalp, your hair can remain cleaner for a longer period of time. So, that means you get to wash it less than needed and overall that's healthier for your hair and maintains the softness and shine.

So here are the steps to follow:

  1. Shampoo your hair as you normally would.

  2. Split your hair in 4 sections, and on each section start applying your scrub and then massage your scalp.

  3. Rinse.

  4. Apply apple cider vinegar and then rinse.

  5. Apply a hair mask from your root to your ends.

  6. Rinse.

There's just 1 thing to not freak out about: when you scrub your scalp, you'll probably have a lot of hair that will fall out once you rinse. Do not fret, that's completely normal! The hair that comes out is basically just the natural hair that should have fallen off, but was stuck to you.
