Default How do you use your brown sugar scrub?

I've heard a lot of good things about the brown sugar scrub used for 'itchy' scalp issues. I'm going back to the CG method, but for those who use this scrub do you use it before you shampoo, after you shampoo, or during the pre poo process, etc.?

**By the way, I will be using a no sulfate shampoo one last time that has surfactants to remove the previous cones as I begin the cg method.

Usually, you mix your brown sugar into the CO-washing conditioner to make a scrub that way. The basic recipe is 1 Tbsp. brown sugar to 2 Tbsp. CO-wash condish (in other words, one part brown sugar and two parts conditioner ). I use a modified version to help with my itchy, sensitive scalp that uses olive oil and tea tree oil in place of the conditioner. I use this first and then shampoo to get all the extra oil out of my hair, so I guess it depends if you modify it or not when you incorporate it into your routine.

HTH!

I was searching for some sort of instructions for the sugar scrub, as I have dry itchy scalp as well. So thanks!
