Lola Hair Studio Experts dish about how winter hair can be conquered! Who knew a good skin care regime might be the answer?
Scalp health is the newest hair care trend for a reason. Scalp treatment is just as important in healthy hair as a heat protector. Hair and skin is comprised of very similar fats and proteins. If the skin is blocked with sebum, dandruff or is irritated, the hair isn’t going to grow in its prime state. This can lead to hair loss, breakage, dullness, etc. If you’re not living your best hair life, maybe the root of the problem is at... The root.
Benefits of Scalp Treatments
Itchiness and Sensitivities
Redness and Irritation
Exfoliators and deep cleansers break up and pull out dead skin cells that clog hair follicles and oil glands. This cuts the greasiness, allows the scalp to breathe and creates an environment for the follicles to rejuvenate themselves and to begin their growing cycle again. When dead cells are blocking the sebaceous glands, the oil builds up, blocking pores and follicles which can lead to hair fall. This is a treatment to look into if you have the kind of hair that never grows past your shoulders.
If you’ve been battling oily hair all your life, think about your scalp like your face. If all of the oil is stripped from the skin, the sebaceous glands will go into overdrive and you end up in a greasy cycle. Stay away from purifying shampoos for everyday use. Typically, a good skin care regime consists a gentle cleanser, exfoliation once a week and a daily moisturizer. Follow suit. Cleansing every other day is also ideal.
Hyaluronic acid, salicylic acid and niacinamide are some of the most popular skin care ingredients that are now in many hair care lines like Oribe. Oribe’s Serene Scalp and Gold Lust collections are full of these skin grade ingredients that penetrate the hair shaft and are also beneficial for the scalp.
