UNDERSTANDING WHY YOU SHOULD BE EXFOLIATING YOUR SCALP:
The scalp is an extension of the face. Therefore the skin of the scalp needs to be treated similarly. Exfoliation activates essential skin functions, promoting epidermal regeneration and regulation of the keratinization process. Sloughing off dead skin cells is vital for cell renewal.
Tip: Scalp exfoliators are highly recommended for anyone who has psoriasis, eczema or other dry and/or overly oily scalp conditions. They will not irritate but rather soothe and begin the healing process. Everyone should be using a scalp exfoliant, but especially those with extreme scalp conditions on a regular basis once per week.
PAIRS WELL WITH
Kérastase Spécifique Serum Potentialiste. Whenever we do a deep exfoliation of the skin we've essentially "cleared away" a surface layer (dead weight-don't worry nothing you'll miss), this improves efficacy of treatments by allowing deeper penetration into the skins dermal layer. Which means, this is the time to use those scalp serums for maximum results! Serum Potentialiste nurtures the microbiome, protecting it against daily external aggressors and shifting it to its most optimal state as a protective barrier, resulting in a thriving and balanced scalp-a solid foundation for hair that is strong and beautiful. We think this serum + the Scalp Scrub is an iconic duo, making the pair a must-have.
"A happy scalp makes for happier hair. Everyone needs a scalp scrub, period".
