Whether your scalp seems greasy or dry, getting to the bottom of the cause is the first step towards an effective solution. After all, the goal is to have a healthy scalp to achieve healthy hair! With all the issues that can affect your scalp’s health, we narrowed down what makes a problem scalp – and what you can do about it.
1. BUILDUP ON YOUR SCALP
From products you use
Your scalp shedding dead skin
Overproduction of oils
Environmental dirt or fungus
This can lead to scalp issues like dandruff, or the more severe Seborrheic Dermatitis. If your head is itchy, red, or inflamed, chances are there’s some dead weight sitting on your scalp skin, just waiting to be cleansed away!
2. SCALP INFECTIONS
Scalp’s prolonged exposure to unhygienic tools/products
Touching your scalp too much
Not washing enough
Scratching your scalp often
Especially with itching your scalp, this creates microlesions that are open to bacteria. Infections are caused by bacteria that can come from shaving, applying makeup or irritant products! An example of a scalp infection is folliculitis, where your follicles are inflamed and your scalp has small pimples.
3. UNDERLYING MEDICAL CONDITION
Here’s how having powerful scalp care can heal each issue! Although you cannot permanently remove medical conditions that irritate your scalp, scalp care can largely contribute to soothing their effects.
1. CLEANSING YOUR SCALP
2. MOISTURIZING & SOOTHING
Incorporating a Scalp Treatment once or twice a week moisturizes your scalp’s skin and soothes itchiness. With supporting herbal ingredients & organic oils, your scalp can comfortably produce its natural oils. They will work harmoniously with the organic treatment to soothe & nourish irritated skin! And with proper hydration, you will strengthen your hair growth, nourish your follicles, and calm your scalp issues. Especially with antifungal, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory herbs, regularly applying the treatment will soothe inflammation, itchy patches, sores, and any other problem areas.
It’s incredibly easy to neglect your scalp as your focus is primarily on your hair. However, healthy hair can only come from a healthy scalp! Prioritizing your scalp care is the first step to any healthy hair care – and this comes easy with natural ingredients. When you support your scalp & hair with organic herbs and oils free of irritants, your skin and strands will only benefit!
