Just like your skin your scalp needs to be exfoliated too. It is imporatnt to deep clean the scalp to get rid of dead skin cells and product buildup to keep your scalp healthy that results in faster hair growth.



A sugar scrub is great to exfoliate your scalp to remove build up & flakes to achieve healthier & cleaner scalp. This easy hair scrub gently removes deposits and soothes flaky scalp. It helps to exfoliates, soothe, and remove buildup. Sugar is an excellent ingredient to gently cleanse the scalp without hurting the skin. There are many scalp scurbs available on the market with sugar or salt in it. I personally prefer sugar over salt as salt can be too drying.

You can mix the sugar with hair oil, like coconut oil to make a scalp scrub but the easiest way to use a sugar scrub is to mix it with your shampoo. Use a mild shampoo without SLS or parabens in it. A mild shampoo has moisturizing benefits that will keep your hair soft and will cause dryness or frizz. READ MORE – HOMEMADE NATURAL HAIR OIL RECIPE – for faster and thicker hair growth
