You know the AHAs and BHAs you use on the face? Ingredients like salicylic acid, glycolic acid, and the like all help to refresh the skin and slough off dead skin cells—which is why they’re a great addition to scalp products as well.
For those with oil buildup, or if you find your hair is getting oily quicker than you’d like, look for salicylic acid, like The INKEY List Salicylic Acid Exfoliating Scalp Treatment. This ingredient is a beta-hydroxy acid that works to plunge into the pore, clearing out oil and dirt buildup.
For a dry scalp or itchy scalp, opt for something with AHAs like glycolic or mandelic acid as found in the Bread Beauty Supply Scalp-Serum: Cooling Greens Exfoliating Scalp Treatment. AHAs will help get rid of buildup in a gentle manner, perfect for those prone to sensitivity or a dry scalp. Each treatment will have unique directions, so follow the suggested steps closely to avoid irritation or overuse.
