Q&A: Everything You Need
To Know About Fusio
Here, we answer all of your questions about how you can harness the invigorating power of this sensual, deep cleansing scalp treatment.
Q1: What is scalp exfoliation?
Only our latest hair care obsession! We’ve always been very mindful of scalp health as the root of healthy hair. Maintain a healthy scalp with a little help from a detoxing, pore-stimulating scrub. Your hair will be more likely to reach its longest, strongest, most luscious state.
Q2: Why should I exfoliate my scalp?
Exfoliation is the process of removing dead skin cells from the surface of the skin. This reveals the newer, more vital skin below. Although the body naturally replaces dead skin cells with new ones, the process can be slow and uneven. Exfoliation from the outside really helps the skin with this crucial process. It removes oil, dandruff and deeply encrusted dirt. It detoxifies the scalp and stimulates the skin’s natural renewal process, revealing shinier, more voluminous hair. The effect is visible from the roots all the way to the tips.
Q3: How do I use an exfoliant scrub for hair?
Scalp exfoliation is simple, easy and feels amazing. Use it in place of your shampoo on the days you do this treatment.
How to apply Scrub?
Begin with wet hair. Comb through and separate your hair into sections. Apply the scrub to the scalp with your fingertips. You may also use a brush or glove designed for exfoliation. Rub in a gentle, circular motion, adding water occasionally to create a thick lather.
Follow with your routine
Rinse thoroughly and follow with a nourishing treatment on mid-lengths and ends. Use any serums or styling products as you wish.
The result is light, soft, voluminous hair and an improved mood!
Q4: How often should I use an exfoliant scrub on my hair?
Ideally, use your exfoliant scalp scrub once a week as a deep cleansing hair treatment (no more than twice a week). This is an excellent time to use your weekly deep conditioning hair mask as well. Take this time to perform a ritual that will improve your hair and outlook throughout the week.
Q5: Does an exfoliant scrub replace my shampoo? How does it fit into my hair care routine?
It doesn’t completely replace your shampoo. An exfoliant scrub is a once-a-week treat. On the day that you use your scrub, it serves as the cleansing step of your routine. There is no need to use a separate shampoo. On the other days, you can cleanse with your usual shampoo. Always follow your exfoliant scrub with a nourishing treatment. Use any serums and styling products as usual.
Q6: What is the difference between a chemical and physical exfoliant?
A physical exfoliant contains ingredients (such as sea salt) that create friction on the scalp to remove dead cells and impurities. These work best with a gentle massage using the fingertips or an exfoliant brush or glove. A chemical exfoliant achieves the same effect with gentle ingredients that dissolve the buildup at the surface of the scalp.
Q7: Is an exfoliant scrub harsh on the hair and scalp?
Neither treatment is harsh if adapted and used at the proper frequency (no more than twice a week). An exfoliant scalp scrub can benefit all hair types, even dry or sensitized hair. The 2 scrubs will remove impurities at the root. The hair will grow faster. If it happens to be bleached or damaged, it will regain its health.
For oily prone scalp, our recommendation is Scrub Energisant. Thanks to its purifying texture it will deeply cleanse your scalp and hair.
For sensitive scalp we recommend Scrub Apaisant, which will hydrate your scalp without damaging the cuticules or causing irritation.
