How to Build a Healthy Scalp Care Routine
Worried your hair care routine might not be keeping your scalp healthy? Here are five steps to build a healthy scalp care routine for the long haul.
Keep your scalp clean.
This may seem like a no-brainer, but a healthy scalp starts with a clean scalp. Washing — and/or co-washing — your hair regularly is one of the main steps to keeping your hair at its best. Getting all of the sweat, product and dirt out of your mane is a key way to keeping your scalp healthy. Our Power Wash Intense Moisture Clarifying Shampoo or the Purify Me — Moisturizing Co-Wash Cleanser are great products to keep handy.
Cut out the stress.
Not only is stress unhealthy for you, but it can also be damaging to your skin and cause hair loss, too. Whether you choose to exercise, meditate or engage in your favorite hobby, finding a way to cut the stress out of your life can do wonders for your physical, mental, emotional and scalp health.
Pack on the moisture.
Having a dry scalp can lead to it being unhealthy, so you want to ensure that you keep it moisturized at all times. Our Quench — Moisture Intensive Leave-In Conditioner, Natural Growth Oils Collection, and the Butter Crème — Intensive Moisture Sealant are all great products to replenish and maintain the moisture your hair needs.
Love on your scalp as often as you need.
A healthy scalp also includes having the proper circulation going. Blood circulation provides nutrients and oxygen to your hair follicles and scalp and in turn, promotes hair growth. Administering regular scalp massages using our Soft All Over — Multi-purpose Oil can be helpful.
And, most importantly, keep it protected.
A damaged scalp will not produce healthy hair, so protecting your scalp is essential to keeping your hair at its best. To do this, you can wear a hat or scarf if you know you’ll be in the sun or cold weather for long periods of time, Try to limit your use of chemical treatments and limit your use of heating tools.
