Your hair and scalp are as unique as you, and are affected by the products you use plus your daily hair care rituals and lifestyle. That’s why your journey to optimal hair and scalp health begins by understanding your unique hair type and what it needs.
Our new Hair & Scalp Check is designed to give you the most accurate profile of your hair, along with recommended hair products and a customized routine tailored to your hair’s needs. We’ll walk you through all that the tool offers and show you why hair health really starts at the scalp.
Scalp health is the key to healthy-looking hair
Did you know that the secret to great hair starts underneath, at the scalp? It’s important to understand the connection between scalp health and hair health because certain hair issues can stem from the scalp. A healthy scalp is integral for creating healthy-looking hair because hair grows at the root. Since hair follicles are embedded in our scalp, they are greatly influenced and dependent on their surrounding environment and need a nourished foundation to grow.
Cleansing your scalp is important to remove build-up of sweat, excess oil, dead skin cells and effects of pollution that can otherwise clog pores (aka your hair follicles) and possibly inhibit healthy growth. An unhealthy scalp can also lead to dull hair, irritation, dandruff and breakage.
What are other benefits of scalp cleansing? If you experience oily hair, it could be due to an oily scalp, and routine cleansing can help balance oil levels. It can also help normal skin cell turnover, which can lead to visibly healthier hair.
Since your scalp is skin, just like the skin on your face, it’s important to treat scalp care like skin care by exfoliating, conditioning, and protecting it from pollution, environmental aggressors, and the drying effects of the sun.
