The solution to good looking hair is taking good care of the scalp too. For many people who are in a rush, hair care involves a rushed shampoo in the shower, then using damaging products or tools to style the hair. But taking the time to pamper the foundation of your crowing glory will help make your hair look and feel better. Here’s how to achieve balanced hair down to the scalp in your routine.
Start with Massage
You don’t have to go to a spa or spend money on a masseuse when it comes to caring for your hair and scalp. Giving your scalp a good massage while you shampoo only takes a few minutes, but it provides long lasting benefits for your hair. Once you lather up with some warm water and a quality organic shampoo, take your forefingers and starting at your temples, start making small circles around your scalp moving up towards the crown of your head. Then move your fingers down the center of your head and massage well into the front of your hairline. Massaging your scalp improves circulation and blood flow in your scalp which can help with any thinning or hair loss. It also stimulates the hair follicles so that your hair will grow in healthier and stronger.
If you are one of millions of people who suffer from annoying scalp conditions that cause itchy, dry, scaly, and bumpy skin or dandruff scalp, then you want to focus on treating these conditions as soon as possible for the best results. While some over the counter products like medicated shampoos and ant-dandruff products can provide some relief, nothing beats seeing a doctor for these ailments. A skilled dermatologist or natural doctor should be able to diagnose and provide hair treatment methods to get your scalp cleared up fast so your hair has a chance to show its true beauty.
An inexpensive and very effective solution for a damaged scalp or hair is choosing natural products. There are many wonderful products available in retail and health stores that are beneficial to the hair and scalp. Since so many regular hair products contain harmful ingredients including phosphates and artificial colors, natural products can be a safer choice in hair care products. Look for organic hair care products in a wide range of uses, from shampoos and conditioners in lovely scents to moisture enhancing serums and balms to bring back that bounce and shine in your tresses, from the roots to the tips. With natural products, less is more so you actually save money and end up with more manageable hair. Your scalp will feel better and your hair will look better than ever when you use natural products.
Taking care of hair is made easier by starting at the scalp. Think of the scalp as the foundation for a great head of hair. Treat it with care; avoid scratching or burning the scalp with styling tools. Keeping the scalp moisturized will actually reduce the chances of developing dandruff and flaking. Use quality products and use them properly for the best results in achieving balance on your hair right from the scalp.
