Much like your face, your scalp needs moisturizing, cleansing and exfoliating, too. That's where the latest beauty trend comes in. Dr. Francesca Fusco, dermatologist at Wexler Dermatology suggests adding a tablespoon of sugar to your shampoo.
"Adding a tablespoon of sugar to a dollop of shampoo will gently exfoliate the scalp and easily dissolve and rinse out without leaving any residue on hair," explains Dr. Fusco. The idea is to slough off dead skin cells, which allows for better moisture intake when you condition.
The catch? Don't use sugar-infused shampoo everyday. Instead, use it three to five times per week for optimal results.
