Get The Healthiest Scalp Possible

In order to have healthy hair, you need to first have a healthy scalp. The scalp is the soil on which the flowers in the shape of your hair grow. Without the appropriate amount of nutrients and oxygen in the soil, the garden can never look good. Same way, your hair are a reflection of the health of your scalp. Let us take a look at how we can actually do something about it.

Elements of Healthy Scalp

The hair that we see on the head is just the dead ones. In order to improve its health, you have to take care of the root that is inside the scalp. There are five elements as to how you can do that

Oils and Moisture: Your scalp has oil called sebum produced by its oil glands that helps in

lubricating the hair strand during its growth. It is essential for maintaining the moisture of the hair strands. If stripped from the scalp, your hair will become dry and lot less manageable. In order to maintain its healthy balance, follow the following steps:

  • Treat your scalp with beneficial oils at least 3- 4 times a week.
  • Do not wash your hair too often as even shampoos can strip the hair of the sebum
  • Use a sulfate free natural shampoos that do not damage your hair
  • Supplement your diet with fish oils and Omega 3 nutrients to maintain the healthy hair balance

pH Balance: Hair experts all around the world have recommended a pH ranging from 4 to 5 for a healthy scalp in order to have healthy moisture retention for your hair. If the scalp is

too alkali, the hair cuticle opens up and dries more quickly whereas acid helps in flattening of the hair cuticle helping it in retaining moisture. It also helps in making hair less prone to tangles. In order to maintain this target pH, you can follow the following steps

  • Use products mimicking the target pH for your scalp
  • Stay away from harsh shampoos
  • You can start using Hairpro laser helmets which use Low Level Laser Technology to restore the pH balance of your scalp and promote healthy hair

Cleanliness: The pores and hair follicles on our scalp get easily clogged by the buildup

caused by hair products, dead skin cells, oil, and dirt. Not only does this prevent hair growth, but it also irritates the scalp and makes the scalp breeding ground for fungus and bacteria. This can cause itching, dandruff, irritation, and many other problems. So, follow the following steps to make sure your scalp is clean and healthy:

  • Wash your scalp with a clarifying shampoo at least once every 1-2 weeks to clean the scalp
  • Use tea tree oil to avoid bacterial growth on the scalp
  • Do an occasional Apple Cider Vinegar rinse to keep your scalp clean as it is both clarifying and microbial
  • Use a scalp scrub regularly to exfoliate your scalp
  • Avoid products with mineral oil as it promotes buildup on the scalp

Circulation: It is essential for hair growth to have healthy blood circulation in order to have

oxygen and nutrients in the scalp. In order to have so, follow the following steps

  • Use essential oils to improve the circulation
  • Indulge in regular scalp massages to stimulate the blood flow in your scalp
  • Exercise regularly or do Yoga and stretching as they help in healthy circulation of blood throughout the body
  • Get yourself a Hairpro laser cap, now available in India. Not only does it help in rejuvenating the dormant hair follicles, it also helps in promoting healthy blood flow throughout the scalp with the help of low-Level laser Technology

Protection: Protect the skin of your scalp in order to have healthy hair growth. It can get damaged from a variety of factors like intense temperatures, UV radiation or harsh chemicals

  • Wear a hat or a scarf to protect your hair when out in the sun
  • Avoid scalp irritating hair products
  • Avoid perms, chemical treatments or hair relaxers as they are very harmful to your hair causing serious damage to both the hair and the scalp
  • Avoid extremely hot water for washing your hair or spending time in extreme cold

These are just some of the easy things that you can incorporate in your daily routine in order to have healthy hair and give your scalp the best chance. Follow these dos and don’ts regularly and you are sure to notice the difference both in your scalp and your hair.
