I think it's easy to forget that your scalp is your skin. And as a result, we often don't give the scalp as much attention as it deserves. I mean, think about it - we buy serums and exfoliants and moisturisers for the skin on our face, yet we only use a shampoo on our scalp.
What You Need To Know About Your Scalp:
Most important, healthy hair always starts with a healthy scalp. If you're experiencing issues with your scalp, this can impact the growth (or healthy growth at least) of your hair.
Hairdresser and certified trichologist, Guy Parsons told Harper's Bazaar "the scalp is made up of cells which divide and continually work their way to the surface and then shed – as such, it is essential that dead skin is removed by brushing or washing, but also by weekly exfoliation."
At this point, your eyes might've widened, realising that you've never even considered exfoliating your scalp to improve the health of your hair. Don't worry, neither had I until recently.
This is especially relevant now - sunburned scalp, anyone?
