How to take care of your scalp

Longing for stronger, healthier-looking hair? It might be time to look at how well you are treating your scalp. The scalp is often neglected, which is where we go wrong. The scalp is the foundation from which your hair grows, so if your scalp isn’t in good shape, it’s likely that your hair won’t be either. So if you want to create some serious hair envy among your friends, your scalp is the place to start!

In order to achieve a healthy head of hair, it’s important that your hair follicles are kept clean. If you find that your scalp is tight and itchy, you have a lot of dandruff, or that your hair is falling out, it’s most likely a sign that your scalp is in need of some TLC. Similarly, if you find that you can’t go a day without washing your hair because it becomes greasy easily, it’s also likely that your scalp isn’t in great condition. This could be down to overactive sebaceous glands. 

Additionally, some of our everyday routines can contribute to an unhealthy scalp. This can be anything from stress, pollution and even eating habits. One of the biggest culprits is buildup around the hair follicles, which can be caused by the overuse of hair and scalp products such as dry shampoo and sprays. If not properly cleaned, the buildup from these products can clog the follicles, leading to dryness, breakage and even hair loss. How often you wash your hair may also play an important role in the overall condition of your scalp, especially if your products contain any ingredients that can irritate your hair such as sulphates and alcohol.
