If scalp exfoliation is not part of your hair-care routine yet, you risk more than you think. An overproduction of natural oils can lead to unhealthy looking hair, chronic skin conditions and even hair thinning. If you don’t have dandruff (YET!), it doesn’t mean you don’t need to exfoliate your scalp. ‘Cause you do! Why?
Exfoliating your scalp will not only help you to get rid of dead skin cells, but more important it helps you to balance the sebum (build-up of natural oils on the scalp) to a normal, healthy level. In the right amount, sebum helps to make your hair look healthy, soft and shiny. However, a scalp that consists of too much of this sebum, could cause more problems than you can imagine.
An overproduction of natural oils can feed the malassezia furfur yeast that leads to dandruff and on top of that it can also cause flare-ups of seborrhoeic dermatitis, which is a chronic skin condition that comes together with red, greasy patches, itching or burning. In the long run, the build-up of dandruff and sebum can block hair follicles, which can lead to hair loss and hair thinning.
To make sure you never have to deal with all these inconvenient issues, exfoliating your scalp is the message. How to exfoliate your scalp in the right way: Before shampooing apply a modest amount of Omit Head scrub onto wet hair and massage vigorously into the scalp with circular motions focusing on the entire head, subsequently rinse very well. Exfoliating once or twice a week with Omit Head scrub will make your head healthier and your hair look happier.
Healthy head = happy hair
