Our scalp seems like the one thing we forget about when thinking about our hair care. We have to take care of what our hair grows from or we won’t be able to accomplish our desired hair goals.
In need of scalp care? Here are 5 tips on how to achieve a healthy scalp:
Pick The Right Shampoo
Your scalp is still your skin, and just like you would moisturize the rest of your body, don’t forget about your scalp as well. You can use at home solutions to moisturize your scalp like coconut oil, or aloe vera but for shampoo use, make sure to pick the right shampoo that will soothe and prevent dry scalp and itchiness. If you are experiencing dry scalp and itchiness or have a sensitive scalp try out Fanola Sensi Care to help. Our Sensi Care Shampoo gently cleanses and re-hydrates hair using Aloe Vera and Vitamin B5, all while reducing redness and uncomfortable itching.
Wash Your Hair Regularly
We all know the rule to not wash our hair everyday for oil control, but sticking to 2-3 times a week is a good amount to keep your scalp healthy overall. This will keep your scalp from getting too oily or dry and prevent it from making you feel uncomfortable.
Don’t just lather your hair and call it a day, take time to massage your scalp. It’ll help promote blood flow and hair growth, and will relax your muscles. You can use a scalp massager in or out of the shower or you can DIY it and take your fingertips under your hair, and use a firm pressure and move them in a circular motion for 3-4 minutes.
Avoid Extreme Temperatures
Try not to put your scalp under any crazy temperatures wearing a hat during the summer where it can heat up and avoid washing your hair with extremely hot water to prevent inflammation and dry skin.
Take Care Of Yourself
And just like with everything else, eat a well-balanced diet and drink plenty of water each day to keep the body hydrated, because your scalp is just as important as the rest of your skin and what you put in your body actually does affect your scalp.
