9 of the Best Scalp Exfoliators

You probably exfoliate your face. And maybe your feet.  Sometimes your legs.  But have you exfoliated your scalp?  Exfoliating your scalp may seem a little odd, but it can help your hair and scalp.  

Even though you wash your hair a few times a week, your scalp may need a little more attention, especially if you have an oily scalp, a dry scalp, or use a lot of products on your hair.  

Just like the skin on the rest of the body, your scalp needs some TLC.  Your body will thank you with healthier, more voluminous hair.

Your hairspray, dry shampoo, and other products build up on your scalp.  Washing alone sometimes isn't enough.

Scrubbing your scalp can also help with dry, itchy scalp because it sloughs off dead skin cells.  An oily scalp can also benefit because it can help reduce excess oil.

Basically, if you have a scalp, you should be exfoliating.
