    Common Myths About Scalp Exfoliation

    Now that we’ve covered the basics about scalp exfoliation, let’s do some myth busting!

    1. Leave Your Scalp Alone: This is one of the most misunderstood concepts about scalp care. If you think caring for your scalp can irritate it further, think again. Yes, over-exfoliation can be counterproductive for the scalp but giving your scalp a good detox once or twice a week is a must for nourished hair.

    2. Exfoliate Daily: The other extreme of the spectrum. Don’t go nuts on your scalp guys. Scrubbing it every day can not only rip it of essential moisture but also damage the gentle pores of the skin. So daily exfoliation? - A complete NO.

    3. Scalp Scrubs Are Overhyped: Just imagine all the debris resting on your scalp? The pesky snowfall! Those days when your hands are busy scratching your itchy scalp? How will you get rid of these issues without a good scalp scrub? No matter what other products you indulge into, there’s no escape from a scalp scrub. Scalp scrubs help get into the spaces a shampoo or any other product cannot and leave a fresh, speck-free scalp.

      What About Chemical Scalp Scrubs?

      Apart from common DIY scrubs and nature-powered scalp scrubs, there are plenty of chemical scrubs available in the market. How are they different from other scrubs? Chemical exfoliants contains active ingredients glycolic acid and salicylic acid that usually work up dead skin cells and cleanse the scalp. Their action is more oriented towards peeling rather than exfoliating.

      Frequently Asked Questions

      Q.1: Will scalp exfoliation help me with hair growth?

      A. Scalp buildup, dandruff and greasy scalp can stunt hair growth and even cause hair loss. Healthy hair can be a phenomenon only when the hair follicles have a clean, healthy space to breathe and grow. So, if you’re looking for any benefit beyond dandruff-free scalp, you need to start exfoliating your scalp!

      Q.2: Are there any side-effects of using a scalp scrub?

      A. Whilst there are no side-effects of using a scalp scrub, we recommend choosing your scalp scrub wisely. If you want to go for a chemical exfoliant, consult a hair expert or dermatologist to avoid burning your fingers. If you want to go for DIY scrubs, don’t add citrusy ingredients if you have a sensitive scalp. Also, completely avoid scalp exfoliation if you have a scalp infection, an open cut or lice. If you’re already using a scalp scrub and that is causing allergies, please discontinue immediately and consult a doctor.
