The key to healthy hair starts with a healthy scalp – and it’s often overlooked. When your scalp is dry and flaky it makes it difficult for strong hair to grow and you may notice your hair becomes more prone to shedding. We’ve rounded up 7 tips to replenish and rejuvenate your scalp.
Taking the time to deep clean your room, house or apartment feels like a refresh and reset. The same effect can be said when it comes to deep cleansing your scalp. Debris from dust, dead skin cells, and product buildup can inhibit your scalp’s ability to grow healthy hair, so deep cleansing helps your scalp maintain a healthy balance and a fresh canvas. Try to deep cleanse your scalp once a month to treat the roots of your hair and create a healthy foundation for strong hair to grow.
Scalp massagers help exfoliate to remove build-up that could be hindering your hair’s ability to grow and increase blood flow to the scalp. Incorporating a scalp massager, like Keranique’s Scalp Therapy Massager, reinvigorates your scalp with a truly relaxing, spa-quality treatment while promoting hair growth.
Exfoliating Scalp Scrub
An alternative to using an actual brush is to use a scrub to exfoliate your scalp. These scrubs work like regular body scrubs that you use to exfoliate your skin. Similar to the way the pores in your face can be clogged with excess dirt and oil, the same can happen on the scalp. Shampoo does not always get the excess dirt particles out of the hair follicles so a scrub ensures the scalp is clean in order for strong hair strands to grow.
Conditioner is Key
Following the exfoliation of your scalp, you’ll want to rehydrate your scalp and hair. Think about this in terms of skincare, once you exfoliate you then moisturize. Moisture is important for healthy hair growth and a great way to add it back is through a hydrating conditioner.
Witch Hazel helps replenish your scalp due to the anti-inflammatory properties that help soothe dry, irritated skin. Simply apply the witch hazel to a cotton ball or pad and apply it on the hairline. You can also section your hair and apply it from a dropper or spray bottle up to twice a week. Make sure to rub it in and let it sit for 10 minutes before taking a normal shower. If it is too harsh on your skin, use water to dilute the witch hazel.
Using a hair mask is a great way to strengthen and hydrate the hair and scalp. Make sure you wash and towel dry your hair. Then, apply the mask working from the roots to the tips and follow the instructions for how long it should be left on.
You might have used shea butter in a moisturizing lotion, but have you ever thought of using it in your hair? If your scalp is very itchy and irritated, shea butter will provide relief. When applied to curly hair, it acts as a seal in order to keep moisture in the strands.
There are different ways to replenish the scalp to get similar effects. Replenishing the scalp creates a healthier base for hair to grow. If trying any of these methods you’ll notice healthier and stronger hair.
