Whether you’re battling an oily scalp because of the heat, humidity, product buildup or you’re just naturally predisposed to one, adding a hair scrub to your haircare routine will help. Hair scrubs work to cleanse your scalp of dead skin, product and oil buildup. Plus, it will unclog your pores (yes, your scalp has pores too) and promote optimal skin cell turnover for healthier hair.
Below are four hair scrubs to try. Work one into your routine up to two times a week, concentrating only on the roots. After a quick massage, rinse thoroughly and follow with your shampoo. Make sure to use a rich, hydrating conditioner on the lengths after.
