Health care experts even go so far as to compare our scalp and hair to soil and plants. If the soil is of a poor quality, the plants that grow from it will be too. So having clean and rich “soil”, or scalp, leads to having better quality hair.
Caring For Our ScalpScalp care products are often formulated to treat and prevent dryness, flaking, excess build up (like hair styling products), thinning, and even hair loss. Our scalps need some love too! Consistently removing dirt, buildup and oil via scalp stimulation should be a component of any good hair care routine. Regular hair brushing (this distributes your natural oils more evenly) and shampooing is crucial, but how often you do depends on the amount of sebum (oil) your scalp produces daily. The hair follicles get blocked quite easily due to dead skin cells, product buildup, and sebum. After an extended period of time where this occurs, it starts to inhibit hair growth.
Know Your Scalp Type (and how to fix it)
If you know what type of scalp you have then the following is recommended:
Dry Scalp: This is often caused from shampooing too much. Try reducing the use of shampoo to off days (or less) and use a scalp serum or oil to increase your scalp’s moisture.
Oily Scalp: If you own an oily scalp, you might benefit from shampooing your hair more often. Avoid shampoo that are ‘moisturizing’ and decrease using conditioners.
Sensitive Scalp: This type can be solved by adjusting the temperature of the water you use. Cool or lukewarm water is best, especially when paired with gentler shampoos.
Itchy Scalp: If you have itchiness or discomfort on your scalp, you should see a dermatologist for an evaluation. They can prescribe you with an anti-dandruff shampoo.
