Now that the cold weather is here some of you can probably relate to scratching your scalp inconspicuously while you're trying to prevent flakes from settling on your shoulders.

Sugar scalp scrub
If you suffer from dry scalp then you can relate to having what looks like a mini blizzard surrounding you whenever you scratch your scalp. Every time you scratch, the excess skin cells are being shed.
A simple fix for getting rid of these excess flakes is to gently scrub them away when you cleanse your hair. Put five tablespoons of sugar (preferably brown as the crystals are larger) in a bowl then slowly add olive oil or your favorite oil to it to form a paste. Before shampooing section your hair and apply the paste to your scalp and rub gently in a circular motion then shampoo and condition as normal.
