We are sure that many of you have a vast array of masks, serums, and deep conditioners to keep your hair healthy, but an area that is often missed is the scalp.
Taking care of your scalp is important in combatting dryness, inflammation, and in soothing tension caused by styling. It also aids in healthy hair growth and can totally revitalise your hair from root to tip.
Using an oil specifically for your scalp can help protect it from seasonal weather stressors by sealing in moisture. A good oil will permeate the scalp and roots leaving your hair looking and feeling great. Some ‘super’ ingredients to keep an eye out for when choosing an oil are coconut and jojoba.
Oils are especially great for those suffering with itchiness or dryness. We would use a sulphate-free shampoo to cleanse the scalp, and then apply your oil and when it is needed. For those with more serious conditions such as seborrheic dermatitis, psoriasis, or eczema, we would recommend you talk to your doctor or trichologist before using scalp oils.
