How to Exfoliate Your Scalp" Plus Other Healthy Hair Tips

Every woman wants to have a healthy scalp free from residue, excessive oil, snowflakes, and does not itch. Maintaining a healthy scalp promotes hair growth; it makes your hair thicker, longer and also adds strength. 

If you wish to keep your scalp free from dryness or excess oil, follow these simple tips.

  • Know the rules for hair washing: To maintain a healthy scalp, you should wash your hair once a week. This because washing on a daily basis can dry out your scalp, while washing less often can also lead to the buildup of oil and dirt, leading to clogging of your scalp. As you know, clogging may slow down hair growth. 

  • Use a gentle shampoo: Now, the type of shampoo you use is very important when washing your hair. It is vital to use a gentle shampoo that preserves your hair's natural oil and avoid shampoos with ingredients like benzethonium chloride, parabens, sulfates, propylene glycol, and diethanolamine. These ingredients are toxic and could cause allergic reactions or expose the body to carcinogens. Remember, your body absorbs more than half of what you put on your skin.

  • Use a conditioner: It is essential not to skip the conditioning part of your hair, especially after shampooing. Skipping the use of conditioner may cause the hair to dry out and break off. Leave the conditioner on your hair for a few minutes and wash off. You can also use a leave-in conditioner to keep you moisturized all day long.

  • Exfoliate your hair: Exfoliating your hair removes dead skin and promotes blood circulation to keep your scalp healthy. You can exfoliate while washing your hair by using your fingertips to massage the scalp gently. Another method of circulation is using a bristle brush. Once in a month, make an exfoliation mask using sugar and a small amount of shampoo, or buy one from your local beauty store.

  • Eat healthy foods: The importance of healthy eating to the scalp cannot be overemphasized. Ensure that you eat a balanced diet of fruits, vegetables, healthy fats, and lean proteins. Also, incorporate omega 3 into your diet if you experience scalp dryness. 

  • Treat dandruff: If you notice that dandruff has dominated your hair, you should treat it as soon as possible. Ignoring will cause your hair to grow brittle. Visit a professional and get advice on how to treat your scalp and clear dandruff.

  • Reduce sun exposure: The same way overexposure to the sun harms your skin is how it affects your hair. When walking under the sun, ensure that you make use of a protective sunscreen hair care product with ingredients like Octyl Salicylate. 


Maintaining healthy hair and scalp involves an easy and straightforward process. However, you must remain consistent by creating a haircare routine that works for your scalp.
