Hair Scrub; would you use a hair scrub
We all know face and body scrubs are ubiquitous and if it isn’t you should definitely go the nearest drug store! But would you use a hair scrub on your hair. As curious and strange as that sounds, Christophe Robin –the creator of arguably the best-known scalp exfoliator of all, Purifying Cleansing Scrub with Sea Salt from his eponymous brand, the exfoliator is one to die for.
It is French, so it cannot be a hoax that dangles the dream in front of our eyes and take it away. “French women try to wash their hair only once a week, because excessive washing thins the hair and irritates the scalp,” Robin said. “Detoxing your scalp once a week with a product like my Purifying Cleansing Scrub with Sea Salt is a good habit to prevent your hair from getting too oily.”
