Do you wish to banish oily roots and draw out impurities or nourish and gently cleanse away build-up? Discover how to exfoliate your scalp with the help of these award-winning Christophe Robin scrubs. Read on and learn more about the key to a healthier-looking scalp.

What is exfoliation?

Exfoliation is the process of removing dead skin cells from the surface of your skin using a chemical, granular substance, or exfoliation tool. Your skin naturally sheds dead skin cells to make room for new cells every 30 days or so. However, dead cells don’t always shed completely. Resulting in sensitive skin and build-up around the pores. Exfoliating regularly can help prevent this.

Can exfoliation help my hair?

As exfoliation involves removing excess skin cells and oil, many hair experts maintain that regular scalp exfoliation is the key to healthier, shinier hair from root to tip. Removing this build-up ensures a more friendly environment for hair growth and scalp health. It can also help maintain the oil production on the scalp, leading to a more regular wash cycle.
