Most individuals believe they know how healthy their hair is based on what they can see, but they aren’t aware of their scalp status and how it can affect overall hair health. Think of the head like a garden. Just as the earth needs healthy soil that’s nurtured through water and fertilization, the scalp should be free of product buildup and residue for healthy hair to grow. Traditional hair-care products like shampoo are designed to wash your hair, not your scalp. Here are four common scalp problems and how your hair may be affected by them.
Thinning Hair – Having a strong foundation is necessary for thicker, healthier hair. A healthy, clean scalp provides good circulation and increased blood flow to hair follicles creating an ideal environment for proper hair growth.
Balance – Your scalp requires the right balance of oils in order to flourish. Too oily and you may experience thinning hair or dandruff, too dry and you may experience flakes or irritation. Eliminating toxins and moisturizing the scalp properly, ensures that long, healthy hair will grow.
Sensitivity – Using highly acidic products or products full of sulfates can dry out the scalp and cause skin irritation and itchiness. A calmed, nourished, and well-moisturized scalp will allow for a healthy hair growing environment.
Product Buildup – That greasy residue left behind when you don’t rinse your hair well enough may be the cause of those little white flakes you find on your shoulder from time to time. Hair may look limp and dull when suffering from product buildup.
Seeing is believing and to understand the status of your scalp fully, and how it affects your hair, a thorough analysis should be conducted to determine the origin of your hair problems. A healthy scalp is essential to the lush appearance of your hair and the way it performs when styled. It’s what you don’t see in the mirror that matters. Knowing the condition of your scalp is crucial to determine the best hair care regimen for healthier hair.
