Many of us make the common hair mistake of forgetting about our scalp…
Unless you have a scalp disorder (like dandruff), you’ll find that you never pay much attention to your scalp. Yet a healthy scalp is the key to healthy looking hair.
Hormones, stress, genetics and over-styling, can cause a waxy layer of sebum to form on our scalp, which restricts growth by clogging the hair follicle – and later results in hair loss.
You may need to look into your diet too. A dry scalp could mean a lack of Omega-3. Don’t skip out on proteins, and supplement with extra iron if needed.
Treat your scalp to a regular salon treatment and deep conditioning to keep your scalp’s PH balance in check.
Don’t be afraid to use conditioner right at the roots – it might weigh fine hair down a bit, but your hair needs moisture and hydration for optimum health.
Tip: Revive dead skin cells with a weekly exfoliation. This will remove any build up and promote hair growth by improving circulation.
