Regular Hair Care Regimen
It is essential to establish a regular cleansing routine to maintain and improve the health of your scalp. While washing your hair every day can actually lead to a dry scalp, washing it every two to three days will keep your scalp and hair clean by removing product buildup, oils, and dirt that can clog hair follicles, which ultimately impairs hair growth. Plus, washing your hair every few days will thoroughly hydrate and nourish your scalp and hair. Be sure to use a gentle shampoo to cleanse your scalp without removing the natural oils that keep it moisturized. Check out our shampoo collections to find one that will address your specific needs.
Exfoliation Is Key
Just as you exfoliate the skin on your face and body to remove dead skin cells, you should do the same to remove dead skin cells from your scalp. Exfoliating your scalp can eliminate dry skin to keep your hair follicles clean and clear of clogging, which can also help your hair grow stronger and longer. There are a few methods for exfoliating your scalp:
- Brush your hair every day using a brush with natural bristles to remove dead skin cells and increase circulation to stimulate the scalp. What’s more, using a natural bristle brush such as those made from boar bristles can help smooth and soften your hair.
- Use high-quality hair treatment products such as an exfoliating mask at least once or twice a month.
- You can also make your own exfoliating sugar scrub by blending coconut oil, white or brown sugar, and peppermint essential oil to stimulate the scalp and hair follicles.
Conditioning your scalp is important, especially if you have a dry, itchy, flaky scalp. Many people avoid putting conditioner directly on their scalp for fear of causing it to look oily or overly conditioned, but there are ways to prevent this from happening. Simply use a high-quality, lightweight conditioner that will hydrate your scalp and hair without weighing it down. Your scalp will feel nourished and your hair will look soft and moisturized.
