The Importance of Scalp Care

Posted on

Cleanser, toner, essence, serum and cream –– lots thought goes into our skincare routines, yet beyond the normal wash, rinse and repeat three or four times a week, the scalp’s care tends to fall by the wayside. With the season of crisp, dry, moisture-robbing air –– it’s time to give the scalp the attention it deserves.

            Just like the skin on the face and body, it’s important to protect, cleanse and moisturize the skin on our heads. With a higher number of sebaceous glands, sweat glands and hair follicles, along with a lower barrier function as compared to the skin on rest of the body, it’s imperative to understand that healthy hair starts at the root. Clogged hair follicles from product build-up, sweat and dead skin cells can both inhibit hair growth and create a happy environment for dandruff-causing fungus that leads to insatiable itch and a flurry of flakes.

            To maintain a healthy routine for the scalp, start with our Spearmint & Meadowsweet Scalp Stimulating Shampoo. Its gentle, detoxifying formula consists of an expert blend of botanicals, such as spearmint and peppermint, to stimulate and refresh the scalp, while meadowsweet extract and eucalyptus oil act as natural astringents to balance sebum levels and leave the skin’s surface flake-free. Hair is left perfectly balanced between cleansed and hydrated from root to tip. Try and wash hair no more than three to four days a week, otherwise the scalp tends to over-create its natural oils, leaving hair greasy and limp between washes.

            Nourish lengths and dislodge build-up by brushing hair daily with a hair brush made with boar bristles. Boar bristles absorb and distribute natural oils throughout strands to enhance shine, while massaging and stimulating the scalp to promote healthy hair growth.

            Finish off your scalp care routine with our Deep Scalp Follicle Treatment & Volumizer. This proprietary combination of nature's well-known cure-alls creates optimal conditions for fuller, healthier hair while providing a volumizing boost for commercial-worthy tresses. Organic jojoba seed oil is a close match to the sebum our skin naturally produces and leaves the scalp soft and balanced. All-star ingredient hyaluronic acid can hold 1,000 times its weight in water, dousing the scalp in the thirst-quenching hydration it's craving.

            The skin on your face and body is worth the attention it gets every single day. Lend your scalp some of that love by supporting it with a routine that maintains a perfectly balanced environment for beautiful, healthy, shiny hair from root to tip.
