What makes the scalp stronger
Like the rest of your skin, the scalp needs care and attention. Incorporate scalp care into your haircare routine!
The first step is to massage your scalp as it promotes micro-circulation, i.e. It helps blood flow to the hair’s capillary roots and to supply it with nutrients and oxygen. This is essential to grow strong, healthy hair that’s full of vitality. Aim to spend 5 extra minutes in the shower to carry out this relaxing process.
Brushing your hair daily also helps get rid of the impurities that build up during the day. And as an extra step, you can use an exfoliating scrub to gently cleanse the scalp.
In short, moisturising is just as important on the scalp as it is for the skin on your face or body. Consider regularly pampering your scalp with products or masks that are formulated for your scalp's needs.
What drys out the scalp
The scalp can become dry and show signs of fatigue. Why?
Hormonal imbalance is one of the main factors that can affect the essential role of the sebaceous glands in the scalp. This phenomenon slows down micro-circulation and therefore the supply of nutrients and oxygen that reach the hair.
Pollution can weaken the scalp too, causing hair to look dull, weak and tired.
Using products that are too harsh such as overly detergent shampoos can cause dryness and irritation.
Repeated heat styling, excessive heat or brushing your hair too often or aggressively are a few examples of why scalp dryness is likely to happen.
