How To Use It
Mix all ingredients together. Before you shampoo and condition your hair, section hair off into 4 sections. Lightly mist hair and apply the scrub to each section. Once your entire scalp is covered, gently massage the scrub with your fingertips. Be careful not to rub your scalp too hard to avoid causing any irritation.
Besides having a scalp that feels great, using a scalp scrub has a few other amazing benefits. One of the most notable being a relief for dryness and itchiness. Other benefits include the promotion of healthy hair growth, deep removal of product buildup, and in some cases it can treat minor hair loss.
