We all know that sugar is terrible for our bodies but one expert seems to think that it could work wonders for our hair.
Indeed, Dr. Francesca Fusco, dermatologist at Wexler Dermatology, believes that adding sugar to your shampoo could leave you with cleaner, healthier hair.
Speaking to Marie Claire, she explained that adding a tablespoon of sugar to your regular shampoo will gently exfoliate the scalp.
She explained: ‘Not only are you removing all the gunk more efficiently, but nixing dead skin cells allows conditioners to penetrate efficiently. So you’re getting a deeper clean and better moisture, all at the same time.’
The expert recommends combining the sugar granules with a moisturising shampoo and only using it around every four washes to save over-exfoliating.
