The root of healthy hair is a happy scalp. Removing buildup from dry shampoo and other products will make your strands stand out. Our expert stylist shares how good scalp care helps you achieve your hair goals.

Tips of the Trade

By Design Team Stylist Gilad Goldstein

Goal 1: Grow Your Hair

Try a scalp scrub. They stimulate skin and remove impurities to boost hair growth. Use once a week for maximum benefit.

Goal 2: Banish Buildup

Scalp exfoliating treatments are a best bet for removing product buildup that dulls hair. Clarify once a week to keep color vibrant. Oily hair types can use twice a week.

Goal 3: Do a Detox

Look for a treatment with activated charcoal to draw out dirt, pollutants and restore hair’s natural radiance.
