Scalp Care Is The New Self-Care

Natural Tips

Hair care products have been around for longer than we can imagine, but what a lot of people don’t realise is that the delicate skin that lies beneath your hair – yes, your scalp! – also requires regular care to remain healthy.

If you’re already doing everything you can for your hair, using all the right products and still not achieving the mane you’ve always dreamt of, overlooking your scalp may be the culprit. Lifeless, weighed down hair can be a direct result from excess residue that hasn’t been properly removed.

Just like the skin on the rest of our body, the scalp can build up impurities. Between all the dry shampoo, exercise, natural and environmental factors (oh yes and more dry shampoo!) every scalp is subject to unwanted build up.

A healthy scalp care routine involves using products that can actually remove these impurities without over-stripping, while maintaining the natural balance of the scalp.

If you’re not looking after your scalp, read on to find out why you should be. After all, a healthy scalp is what will create the environment for healthy hair!

STYLING PRODUCTS

We love styling products and know how great they can be for managing our hair. And let’s face it: chances are our hair is 90% dry shampoo by Friday. But, if not properly cleansed, these products can build up on the scalp causing the hair follicles to clog up.

If you consistently use products like dry shampoo, mousse and hairspray, detoxifying your scalp becomes a necessity just like removing makeup from your face at the end of the day.

EXERCISE

While vital for our wellbeing, frequent exercise can also contribute to scalp build up and an unhealthy environment for the hair. But don’t skip your next endorphin releasing session because of it yet!

Whilst it’s true that sweat can contribute to an unhealthy scalp – and, even worse, fungal infections! – all you need to do is tweak your routine slightly to ensure you wash it all off and leave your scalp happy.

NATURAL & ENVIRONMENTAL CAUSES

And if that wasn’t enough, natural and environmental factors can also undo all the hard work you’ve been putting in! As with all our skin, dead cells are constantly dying and regrowing, meaning they will shed at the end of their cycle.

If your skin isn’t shedding fast enough naturally, you may need to give it a little nudge with clarifying products. The same goes for humidity and other environmental factors.

“Ok, I hear you… but what can I do to prevent this?”

 

CLARIFY & DETOXIFY

Clarifying shampoos & conditioners are the most common method to remove the scalp of excess build up and residue. However, many clarifying products were not made to be used daily as they can really dry out the hair and scalp.

It’s important to look for products that will remove the impurities without disrupting the natural balance of the scalp.

Our Klorane Scalp Detox Shampoo with Aquatic mint & Scalp Protective Conditioner with Aquatic mint are gentle options with clean, plant-based formulas that are suitable for frequent use on all hair types, and will effectively prevent your scalp from becoming clogged with everyday build up.

Powered by the clarifying & detoxifying powers of organic Aquatic mint, no amount of sweat or dry shampoo is going to be too much for our Scalp Detox range to handle!
