Scalp health is vital for good hair. Let’s get right to the root of it, skin care does not stop at the hairline. The scalp is skin too, and the topic of scalp skin and scalp health is at the forefront and gaining more awareness. So, why is scalp health so important?
Scalp Health Talk
Hair grows from a root located at the bottom of the follicle, under the scalp’s skin. The blood in the scalp travels to the follicle, delivering oxygen and nutrition – key to a healthy scalp and hair growth. If the proper amount of vitamins and nutrients are not delivered, the scalp may become malnourished and cannot properly do its job.
The hair is the second fastest growing tissue in the body! Scalp health depends on a healthy, nourishing environment to support this fast-growing tissue – the quality of the hair and hair growth depend on it.
The Scalp also has more sebaceous glands and sweat glands than the skin on the body, making it prone to clogged follicles, heightened sensitivity, and irritation. Combine this with hair product build-up, and you have the perfect storm for a problematic scalp. This all leads to poor scalp health.
A problematic scalp can cause unhealthy/slower hair growth, dry patches, dull, lackluster hair, thinning hair, and at times, loss of hair.

Maintaining Scalp Health
The scalp needs to be cleansed, exfoliated, and nourished – just like the skin. Without these steps, hair growth is affected, and follicles can get clogged and cause scalp inflammation and tenderness.
Cleansing, exfoliating, and nourishing the scalp aids in:
· Removing product build-up
· Encouraging hair growth
· Promoting blood circulation to the scalp
· Helping inhibit dry scalp and irritation
· Preventing and calming inflammation
· Growing stronger, healthier, shinier hair
When caring for the scalp, it is important to use hair-healthy products and implement hair self-care. Look for products that do not contain harsh chemicals (including sulfates and parabens) and do provide proper cleansing and nourishment. Hair self-care: add a scalp massage to the hair routine encouraging blood flow to the scalp! The overall goal is to create synergy between the scalp and the hair for healthier, shinier, stronger hair.
