They seem to be becoming the latest trend product in hair care. Almost weekly new ones come onto the market. Another clever marketing move? Or really a must for beautiful hair? I am a bit confused. With a feeling of dryness and dandruff, I personally still see a certain sense in it, but does a healthy scalp really need to be peeled regularly?
Peelings are sufficiently known for face and body. Through gentle rubbing, dead skin flakes are dissolved and blood circulation is stimulated. The effects on the scalp should be exactly the same: deep cleansing, increased blood circulation and supply of care ingredients. Why deep cleaning? Isn’t a shampoo enough? The answer: Not always, because dirt and dead cells accumulate on the scalp, as well as residues of styling products. Together with silicone from shampoos and other care, they can cause so-called build-ups on the base and hair. They weigh the hair and flatten it. Scrubs dissolve such build-ups. The effect: The pores of the scalp can breathe again and active ingredients can be absorbed better. In addition, the treatment is equivalent to a gentle massage that stimulates blood circulation. Just like the scalp massage at the hairdresser. What happens is that the fresh blood, rich in oxygen and nutrients, reaches the hair roots and thus supports growth. The scrubs contain additional active ingredients, such as anti-inflammatory substances such as tea tree oil, which are adapted to the needs of an irritated scalp. Minerals such as alumina provide the hair roots with nutrients. Avocado oil or apple extracts moisturize and are intended to regulate the production of the sebaceous glands. This, in turn, means that the hairline re-grease less quickly. However, the actual peeling effect is achieved by fine grains of sand, sugar and sea salt. Exfoliating shampoos, such as those found in anti-dandruff hair care, contain increasingly enzymes instead of solid grains. We know these from facial care, where enzymes are often combined with salicylic acid. But does a healthy scalp actually benefit from regular peelings? We asked the L’Oreal hair expert Stefan M. Pauli:
Do I need to buy for myself a scalp peeling right now?
It is definitely a problem-solving product. However, If you have no problems and don’t over-style your hair, you should prefer a good shampoo and a cure or serum if you want to do something good for your scalp.

To travel during my profession as a beauty journalist was never enough for my. Also my six month on a world trip didn’t do it. It always attracts me to other cities, foreign countries, on roadtrips and places I don’t know yet. But I am not only interested in “culture” and “cream”, I am also fascinated by people who have stories to tell . Such unique experiences I want to share with you.
