Who doesn’t want to have gorgeous looking hair? If you want your hair to look and feel good, it all starts with the way you take care of your scalp.
Without a well-kept scalp, your hair will not be able to grow and thrive as we all desire. Healthy scalps consist of skin that is toned and stimulated. You want your scalp to allow circulation to your hair follicles and be able to seal in moisture.
Don’t Slather the Oil onto the Scalp
For generations and generations, we have been told that you have to keep your hair oiled. When you allow the oil based products to build up on your scalp, it will lead to more problems not to the perfect scalp.
Your scalp actually produces its own oil. If you are constantly getting flakes within your scalp, your scalp will produce less of its natural oil. This will cause the scalp to get a bit off balance and you do not want to apply more oil to even it out.
To moisturize the scalp and to get rid of products, simply wash and condition.
Use the Right Products and Rinse
Proper use of products and rinsing is a critical part of getting your scalp in a better condition. You want to avoid shampoos that consist of sulfate and ammonium. You want to wash your hair around once or twice a month.
When using conditioning products, you should rinse your hair thoroughly. Dandruff can develop when conditioner is left in the hair.
Stay Away from Extreme Heat
Blowdryers and hooded dryers give off extreme heat that could ultimately damage your scalp. You want to avoid exposing the scalp to extreme temperatures.
You are What You Eat
Healthy diet equals a great looking scalp. There is no such thing as a “Scalp Diet”, but there are a few things you can eat to improve the way you take care of your scalp. A diet consisting of fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts, whole grains and unsaturated fat will lead to a better functioning scalp.
