The crux of most of your hair problems lies in your scalp. If your scalp is healthy, your locks will be free from dandruff, dryness and eventually be long and strong. One of the best ways to indulge in hair detox is scalp brushing. In this process, you use a paddle brush to slowly brush your scalp from the headline to the nape of your neck. This not only promotes blood circulation but also ensures that all the dirt and grime is off your scalp. Doing this twice a week will help your hair growth as well as make your mane healthier.
