We often give extra care to the shaft of hair but for healthy and well-moisturized tresses we need to tackle where it all begins – the scalp. We’re not just talking about shampoos and conditioners here, we’ve got selected hair treatments and special ingredients you can look out for the next time you’re out running to the drugstore.
Why is a moisturised scalp important? To avoid dealing with dry, flaky and itchy scalp having a well-hydrated scalp will ease your hair care problems and routine. We’ve rounded up some of the tips to help you out!
1. Scalp Shampoo And Conditioner
Obviously, if you’re experiencing some troubles in that area you’d want to find products that can specifically target it. If dryness is your problem than opt for ones that have moisturising properties to combat it.
2. Hair Oils
We often avoid putting hair oils on our scalp thinking it will make our hair look greasy, yes but there’s a way to avoid that. Squeeze one or two drops of hair oil onto your fingertips and massage your scalp afterwards it sink in. Do this method at night. If you want to do it in the morning, with wet hair, use a cotton bud to distribute the oil evenly on your scalp.
3. Use Astringent
Astringent is a substance that can help to remove excess hair oils. Go the au natural by using lemon. Lemon has a natural astringent property that can disinfect your scalp, get rid of dandruff and scalp acne. Take 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and half a cup of distilled water and mix it in a spray bottle. Spray directly onto your scalp once a day to keep your scalp fresh and clean. If you have an open wound just know that it might sting!
4. Drink more water
What you put in your body will show on the outside. Drink plenty of water to keep your body and scalp well nourished. Trust us you’ll feel so good if you do!
5. Edit your haircare routine.
Don’t pack on too many products on your hair. Keep your routine and products minimal to avoid irritating the scalp and product build-up.
