Yes, You Should Be Using A Scalp Scrub

Briogeo scalp scrub; IGK scalp scrub

We give our strands so much love, but our scalps are often an afterthought—or not a thought—in hair-care routines. Enter scalp scrubs, which deep-clean away grime and residue.

How to use: Wet your hair and section it. “Take a small amount of the scrub and apply it directly to the part, not your hair, with your fingers,” says Justin Anderson, celebrity colorist and dpHue creative director. Repeat five or six times around scalp, then massage. Rinse well and follow with shampoo and conditioner. (Just limit this to once a week to avoid irritation!)
