How to deep clean your scalp

Scalp cleansing may not be at the top of your beauty regime, but it can make a surprising difference to the condition of your hair. There are a few different options for how to deep clean your scalp, try some of these and see which works best for you and your hair:

Scalp massage

Do you love having your head massaged at the hairdressers? Well, it’s actually good for you too. A scalp massage can help to improve blood flow, speed up hair growth, and improve the overall condition of your hair. Go professional or get a friend to lend a hand.

Scalp combing

This isn’t just brushing your hair as you normally would. Combing your scalp gently with an appropriately sized brush can help remove buildup of excess skin and dislodge any debris or dandruff.

Oil treatment

Only opt for oil-based scalp treatments if you tend to have dry or darker hair. On oily-prone blonde hair, this can cause buildup, but for the right hair type, oily scalp treatments can be great. There are different benefits depending on the type of oil you choose; massage it directly into your scalp and leave for 5 minutes before washing off for a deep clean scalp.
