Top 5 Ways to Give Your Scalp Some Love
By treating your hair right and giving it the proper care it deserves, you will not only preserve it and stave off hair loss, you will also help your hair and scalp flourish. In this article, your trusted hair care and restoration experts at Ziering Medical will discuss the best scalp care products and practices for various scalp conditions. These can range from oily scalps, sensitive scalps, dry scalps or dry hair.
The Importance of Moisturizing in Scalp Care
The skin of the scalp is different from that of the rest of the body. It is some of the thickest skin and carries more blood than other areas, as well as many sebaceous glands that produce oil or sebum, which protects hair.
Moisturizing the scalp is essential for hair health. The sebum produced by the scalp’s oil glands is a natural oil that lubricates the hair strand as it grows. Sebum is essential for healthy, moisturized hair. If the scalp is not moisturized, it will become very dry, itchy, and flaky. As a result hair will start to appear dull and it will become more prone to breakage, damage and fall. When your scalp is moisturized it will help it stay clean from the dandruff-causing fungus, and it won’t cause tightness or irritation.
Additionally, hair length and hair texture plays a role in managing sebum production. Those with curly hair require more time between washes than those with straight hair, as the oil needs to travel along corkscrew-shaped strands to moisturize all the way to the ends.
Ways to Keep Scalp Moisturized
1. Regular deep conditioning is great for scalp care.
To care for an oil scalp, you may need to wash your hair more frequently to keep it clean as people with very oily scalps are prone to developing acne on the scalp or along the hairline. Also, do not overwash your hair with shampoo as it can wash out all the natural oil that’s keeping your hair moisturized. If you have dry hair on most days, washing your hair a few times a week should be enough.
2. Applying hair oils designed for the scalp is another way to keep it healthy.
Applying oil onto hair and massaging it into the scalp increases moisture, luster and shine. It can also soften the hair and provide vitamins and minerals that get stripped due to frequent washing.
3. Sulfate-free shampoos are optimal hair care products for sensitive scalps.
Sulfates are chemicals that are used as cleansing or foaming agents. While they are generally safe, some people are more sensitive to this substance and can be better served with sulfate-free products.
4. Use scalp masks.
These are applied directly to the scalp and are usually made of gentle clays and hydrating botanical oils. They rebalance and soothe stressed-out scalps and make the hair feel soft as well.
5. Avoiding dry shampoo and styling products.
There are countless shampoos and conditioners on the market right now and many of them may leave your hair dull, dry, and greasy. So instead of cleansing and nourishing your hair, you might actually be damaging it. If you notice any undesirable results from using a shampoo or conditioner, stop using them right away and try changing them up. Be sure to stick to all-natural products as they are gentler and safer for your hair and scalp.
