Brown Sugar–based Hair Scrub Recipes That Must Be In Your Hair Care Routine

If you use white sugar for skin scrubbing at home, then for the hair scalp scrubbing, you have to pick brown sugar.

Well, usually men and women limit their hair care to-dos to oiling and shampoo alone. One of the important hair care to-dos that they miss is, scrub.

Scrubbing is important, especially in today's times, considering the everyday exposure of our hair to dust and pollution. Scrubbing cleanses the hair scalp, thereby nourishes the hair follicles, encouraging new hair growth as well.
