Your hair still feels heavy after washing? Then a special hair peeling could be interesting for you. It should act as a deep cleansing and let the scalp breathe again. We reveal how it works.
Peeling for the face and body is already part of the beauty routine for many. No matter whether mechanically with fine peeling particles or chemically in the form of an AHA or BHA peeling - the goal usually remains the same: namely to rid the skin of dead skin and thus ensure an even complexion.
What many forget: dead skin cells can also be deposited on our scalp. Special hair scrubs are intended to clean the skin on our head particularly thoroughly and thus also have a positive effect on our mane.
We'll tell you how hair scrubs work and how to use them correctly.
Anyone who regularly uses styling products such as hairspray, hair mousse, etc., knows that washing their hair is sometimes not enough to completely rid the hair of deposits on the scalp. Quite a few women swear by 3-step cleaning when washing their hair: twice using the shampoo and then applying the conditioner.
However, special hair peelings should be even more thorough than shampoo: they free the scalp of flakes of skin, excess oil, styling residues, and silicones that over time deposit on the skin and weigh down the hair. The hair roots, in particular, can benefit from this deep cleansing: the scalp can breathe again after the application and the hair grows back healthy and, above all, faster.
Especially great for everyone with fine, flat hair: relieving the scalp automatically creates more volume at the hairline and the hair appears visually fuller.
In order not to irritate the scalp, a hair peeling should not be used more than once a week. Those who tend to have sensitive, dry skin can limit the application to once a month.
As the first step, the peeling is applied to damp hair before the shampoo and gently massaged into the scalp. Depending on the product, the peeling should work on the scalp for 3-5 minutes. Then it is rinsed thoroughly with lukewarm water. After use, you can continue washing your hair as usual with shampoo and conditioner.
Regardless of your hair type, you should definitely use a hair peeling with natural ingredients. Not only for your scalp but also for the sake of the environment. Exfoliating particles made from microplastic cannot usually be broken down and pollute the oceans.
