HOW TO MAKE SUGAR & SALT HAIR SCRUB

Naturally, when one thinks of exfoliating they think of scrubbing down their entire body with an amazing body scrub. However, exfoliating isn’t just for your body and a lot of times it’s forgotten that your scalp is skin too! With naturals using less shampoo and more conditioner to cleanse their scalps during the winter months, buildup can be a big problem; excessive hair products too can lead to greasy hair with buildup. If you exfoliate your skin to remove dirt, oil and other buildup from your pores, then the same needs to be done for your scalp. Here I am with an easy and natural sugar & salt hair scrub.
