Hair health starts with a healthy scalp. If your head is feeling itchy, flaky, or greasy, it’s time to give your scalp the attention it deserves. With the right at-home treatments, you can keep your scalp calm and nourished for great looking hair.
Start with a Gentle Scrub
Before you start any scalp treatments, give your head a gentle scrub. Using a special scalp brush or your fingertips and an exfoliating scrub, massage the mixture of oily substances and dead skin cells away to make sure your treatments are effective.
Incorporate Hot Oil Treatments
Hot oil treatments are an amazing way to keep your scalp healthy and soothe any irritation. A few drops of oil on your fingers is enough; gently massage it into your scalp with long, circular strokes, leaving it in for 10-15 minutes. Coconut oil, argan oil and olive oil are some great options!
Use Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner
After a hot oil treatment, use a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner to keep your scalp feeling its best. Make sure you read the labels on the product packaging to learn what ingredients are used. Look for something that is gentle and free of harsh chemicals that can contribute to irritation. Be sure to follow with a revitalizing conditioner - this will add shine and volume while also preventing breakage of hair strands from dryness.
Consider Follicle Stimulation
Stimulating the scalp with a massage several times a week can help promote hair growth and healthier follicles. Regularly massaging your scalp, using your fingertips to stimulate blood flow, sends vital nutrients to your follicles encouraging them to produce healthy hair. Incorporate both circular motions and stroking up and down over large sections of the scalp. Remember not to pull too hard on the hair when massaging; this can damage individual strands and inhibit new growth.
Apply Natural Hair Mask
Treating your scalp with a hair mask can help soften, moisturize, and nourish the skin. When looking for an at-home scalp treatment, opt for a natural and nourishing hair mask that’s free from harsh chemicals. Some ingredients to look out for include shea butter, honey, apple cider vinegar, avocado oil and tea tree oil — all of which can help soothe an irritated or dry scalp while providing much-needed hydration!
