The Scalp is an extension of our face and is considered SKIN. But sometimes,  we forget about our scalp just because it is covered with hair. But see it from this point, we wash our face everyday right? but we do need more than washing our face in order to have better skin. That why we exfoliate, moisturize, tone it etc.

Beautiful, shiny hair can boost your look many times

So same it happens with our scalp. It needs more than just washing it like we normally do, it needs to be exfoliated to get it of product build up where most of the time is what causes dandruff and itchiness, because some gels, hairsprays etc leave tiny amounts of residue every time.

If we use them, besides the fact that the skin on our scalp is shedding faster than on the other parts of our body, and that is why it is very important to exfoliate and massaging it to take the flakes off your head and promote hair growth  Also Dandruff can clog pores, and that could be another reason for hair loss and thinning hair.
