Home Remedies All The Way: 3 DIY Scrubs That’ll Make Your Scalp Feel Squeaky Clean

Does your scalp feel itchy, oily, or gritty? Well, sometimes shampoo by itself just doesn’t cut it. Dirt, dryness, greasiness, and product build-up on your scalp can cause scalp concerns like dandruff and hair fall. Sulphate-free shampoos that are low on lather sure are gentle on your hair and it is a very good haircare habit, but you could use some extra help with a scalp exfoliating scrub every once in a while to ensure your scalp is clear of dead skin cells and flakiness in one wash. Plus, it will boost your scalp health by refreshing it so that your hair grows thicker with lesser hair fall to worry about. If you love the idea, then these DIY scalp scrubs are worth trying out.
