A healthy scalp is the foundation of healthy hair, therefore beautiful hair starts with paying attention to the scalp and its specific needs. Although it has the same structure as the skin, the scalp does have certain characteristics that make it very prone to distress. Colorings, pollution, stress, bad shampoo, over-washing, hair styling, dryer heat, product buildup...the causes of its imbalance are endless.
What characterizes the scalp is a high density of blood vessels – if you’ve ever had a scalp wound, you have experienced how much it bleeds – paired with a high density of hair follicles and therefore sebaceous (oil) glands.
For this reason your scalp needs specific dedicated care. A healthy scalp is free of dirt and product buildup so it can breathe, with a balanced production of sebum to create hair that is not too oily, not too dry. Healthy hair follicles also ensure good hair growth.
When your scalp is unhealthy, however, you’ll experience excessive oiliness, hair loss, and dryness—not to mention more serious problems like itching and peeling.
If the scalp is treated well, your strands will be silky and hydrated.
