Say goodbye to dull hair and hello to your natural healthy glow with these three tips.
Happy scalp, happy hair: The best healthy scalp routine
We all love our locks, curls and twirls. Yet, few of us actually take time out to show good loving to our scalps. We forget that the scalp is also an important extension of the skin from the forehead. We overlook that the scalp is constantly shedding dead skin cells and also needs some special care from time to time. Here’s how to get yourself on the path of achieving optimal scalp health.
We are so over-conditioned on how to shampoo (pun intended!) hair properly that we neglect to indulge and treat the scalp. Yet, there are so many benefits from having an exfoliating pre-shampoo treatment, such as with Mizani Scalp Care Pre-Treatment. Pre-treating the scalp gently helps to remove excess oils, bacteria and dead skin cells – just as we do for the skin on our faces and bodies.
Your scalp not only has to deal with dead skin cells but also all the oil and sweat gland issues too. Don’t forget that in the concoction of products you may apply to try and keep your hair silky smooth, you leave behind a residue that accumulates over time. It becomes so important to cleanse your hair. L'Oréal Professionnel Serie Expert Sensi Balance Shampoo will cleanse your hair while protecting it and giving your scalp the balance and attention that it deserves.
Don’t forget to apply sunscreen and to wear a hat when you are out and about. This is particularly important when you consider that your scalp is, in actual fact, an extension of your face and can burn just as easily. It will also protect your hair from the bleached highlights caused by the sun.
Sustaining a healthy scalp is not only in the products you use. You need to make lasting lifestyle changes. Avoid hairstyles that excessively pull and prod your hair. Say ‘no’ to harsh chemicals that are unscientifically proven. Reduce stress in your life.
Think both short and long-term goals when showing your scalp with some much-needed TLC. Your body, all of it (from the tip of your head to your toes), is worth all the care in the world. Above all, choose to be kind to your scalp by siding with gentle styling techniques and products specially formulated for the scalp.
