What causes an unhealthy scalp, and what can be done about it?

Now more than ever, consumers seem to be suffering with varies scalp conditions and it’s our everyday beauty routine that is contributing to the problem. Just like skincare, scalp-care is equally as important and it’s something we need to take note of.

The scalp is an extension of your face and it’s imperative to maintain a healthy scalp in order to have healthy hair growth. The hair follicle can be negatively influenced by everything from sun exposure, to diet, stress, pollution, and the products we use. Poor scalp health can lead to visible signs of flaking, irritation, oily and or weaken damaged hair follicles which leads to breakage, thinning and eventually hair loss.

It’s true that the hair is dead however, the bulb in the follicle is not and it needs nourishment and the hair shaft needs moisture to increase shine and prevent breakage. Both the scalp and hair can be affected by synthetic chemicals found in most styling products, hair dyes, bleach, as well as shampoos/conditioners.

Unfortunately, it is our everyday hair care routine that is contributing to an unhealthy scalp and dry hair. One of the biggest culprits are silicone-based products which can cause buildup that clog the follicles and coat the hair. Impacting healthy hair growth by blocking any nourishment from reaching the scalp and preventing moisture from absorbing into the cortex of the hair.

The ingredients found in your hair care products can also be absorbed into your hair follicle, or through the epidermis as well.  If the scalp is irritated it's important to avoid products containing parabens, glycols, silicones, harsh sulfates and many other harmful molecules. 

For those with oily scalp conditions, your hair is oily because it’s not getting the moisture it needs and is over-producing oil to compensate. The solution? Give your hair the oil it needs, and it will naturally return to a state of balance.

Bring out your hair’s potential.

The fact is, that healthy hair starts with a health scalp and taking a real interest in what your using should be an important aspect of your self-care routine. Investing in better hair products is the first step to getting to the root of most hair care needs.  Your well-being should be about quality not quantity and discovering a new way of taking care of your hair should make you feel empowered and good about yourself in a way you haven’t felt in a long time.
