HEALTHY HAIR AND SCALP GO HAND IN HAND, you cannot have one without the other. Your scalp is the skin on your hair. So, all the problems you could have from not taking care of your skin could also be on your scalp. Keeping a healthy scalp will promote hair growth, prevent hair loss and hair conditions, and reduce irritation.
Healthy Scalp = Healthy Hair
There are small things you can do to keep your hair healthy:
Shampoo gently. Rather than scrubbing when you shampoo it is best to massage as you shampoo your scalp. Scrubbing could cause inflammation or irritation to your scalp while it could also cause breakage. Massage your scalp in circular motions to increase blood flow.
Wash less often. Shampooing too much removes the good natural oils that your body creates for your scalp health. It is best to shampoo 2-4 times a week. A good rule of thumb is if your scalp feels irritated or itchy you have passed your “shampoo day”.
Add Omega-3 to your vitamin regimen. It promotes hair growth and prevents hair loss.
You are what you eat. Glowing skin and a health scalp love healthy vitamin rich food.
Brush your hair and your scalp daily with a gentle brush. We like the Wet Brush because it has massaging attributes for your scalp built into the bristles.
Exfoliate your scalp when you exfoliate your body. Your scalp needs a gentle exfoliation about once a week. It will remove dead skin cells, extra oil, and dandruff. You guessed it, it will also increase blood flow in the scalp. There are many scalp exfoliants on the market, we love Kerastase new Scalp Renewal Exfoliating Antidandruff Scalp Scrub. It purifies and soothes sensitive scalps.
Avoid sun exposure. Rays of light from the sun can cause thinning, sunburn, and skin cancer. Wear a hat or scarf when in the sun if possible. Look for products that protect your hair and scalp from UV Rays.
Lastly add a serum to your hair wash routine. For best results use a hair serum with a dropper on clean, towel dried hair. Kerastase has a serum for everyone, and they are available at all three locations.
