Why You Should Exfoliate Your Scalp

Considering adding a scalp exfoliant to your hair ritual?
When there is buildup, our hair follicles are blocked and hair does not grow as healthy - exfoliating helps to keep the scalp free of buildup and able to readily absorb nutrients.

Using a scalp exfoliant consistently can create a healthy environment for hair to grow. When you remove the dead skin cells on the scalp, you lower the enzyme population that contributes to hair shedding. Removing dead cells also encourages cellular turnover, allowing for fresh, healthy new cells to surface.

As exfoliants clear the follicles from which your hair grows, you’re creating a healthy path for new hair. Plus, scalp exfoliators may help to remove temporary hard water deposits in any buildup from haircare products.

While having flakes on your scalp doesn’t always equal dandruff, it could be an indication of a dry and/or irritated scalp. Exfoliants balance natural oils to keep your scalp and hair healthy.

Bonus tips:

Brushing your hair before bed, a shower, or a workout is a great start to removing debris, redistributing oils and start the exfoliation process.

Products with silicones or heavy oils coat the hair making it impervious to moisture and nutrients. This effect could exacerbate oil production and dryness 

It’s one of the leading culprits of scalp issues.

Unlike other scalp exfoliants that use salt, SUNA is powered by Rhassoul Clay, Perlite and Hibiscus Flower Extract (a gentle AHA).
