How You Can Identify Scalp Issues
How do you know you have a problematic or sensitive scalp? The indicators can be glaringly obvious or incredibly subtle – see the signs below so you can detect even the smallest issue! When you know where your scalp stands, you can efficiently assemble your hair care to improve its health!
→ Dry or flaky scalp skin
→ White dots or dandruff
→ Greasy/oily to the touch
→ Red or irritated patches of skin
These can also be indicators of a larger health issue, such as psoriasis or seborrheic dermatitis. Please consult your doctor for professional evaluation + advice!
1. SENSITIVITY TO COLD OR TINGLING SENSATIONS
This is when your scalp feels incredibly uncomfortable when in contact with anything that is minty or cold, especially with essential oils. This could deter you from using nourishing products for your skin, and miss out on important hair growth benefits.
2. REACTIVE TO STANDARD PRODUCTS
This is when your scalp skin reacts to standard products with ingredients that usually do not cause alarm. It can be a tell that your scalp is irritated even before use, whether it’s from buildup, inflammation, or underlying health issues.
