Studies have shown that a healthy scalp is the foundation of a healthy head of hair. Most people pay a lot more attention to their strands than they do to the skin underneath them. Now that bald beauty is trending, scalp care is finally getting the attention it deserves. Doing the big chop is a bold, confident move, but the newly-exposed skin of the scalp needs extra TLC to keep it looking healthy. As well, many women experience bald or patchy areas not by choice, but due to hair thinning or hair loss. In either case, scalp care is essential to stimulate new hair growth and keep the hair you already have as healthy as possible.
The skin of the scalp tends to be more sensitive than other areas of the body that are accustomed to exposure. For this reason, you should choose gentler products than you would ordinarily use. Shampoos and conditioners that advertise moisturizing properties are a good choice.
Buildup can become an issue for the scalp no matter how much hair you have. Dry skin, sweat, and hair products tend to stick around, especially if you use a lot of hair products or if brushing isn’t a regular part of your routine. To tackle the buildup, a scalp scrub is a product specifically designed to exfoliate the scalp, similar to face masks for the face. Opt for one that contains clay rather than more abrasive beads or granules. (Your shower drain will also thank you.)
Who doesn’t love a good head massage? Now you have an excuse to get them more often. Stimulating the scalp improves circulation, which will promote healthy skin and hair growth. You can do this yourself by spending an extra minute or two massaging the shampoo into your scalp in the shower—or, invest in a scalp massaging shampoo brush to make sure the job gets done right.
For those with longer hair, this is a tough one. You don’t want to lather your scalp with moisturizer and ruin your ‘do. This is where moisturizing shampoos and conditioners come in, but there are also a number of serums, hair masks, and leave-in conditioners that can help fight dryness.
This popular treatment from Japan has become popular in America for its scalp-and-hair-benefitting properties. Offered at many salons, it involves a rigorous massage followed by thorough cleansing, and purports to banish dandruff, make hair shinier, and improve hair loss.
The bald beauty movement is not for everyone. Many women experience hair loss, thinning, or brittle and damaged hair. The most common cause of hair loss in women is androgenetic alopecia, otherwise known as female pattern hair loss. It occurs in 50% of women post-menopause, but hair loss can occur at any age from factors such as lifestyle, health issues, pregnancy, stress, and traction alopecia from putting too much stress on the hair. Permanent hair loss can be upsetting—luckily, a hair restoration treatment can restore your scalp to a full, healthy, natural-looking head of hair.
