When it comes to our skin care routine we invest time, money and a lot of effort to keep ourselves looking fabulous. Even our hair tresses themselves get a lot of love and attention!
But have you stopped to think about your scalp? Our scalp is the soil in which our hair grows. It holds approx. 100,000 hair follicles, so in order for your scalp to function properly, it needs a bit of TLC.
Whilst skin care often addresses concerns such as fine lines and pigmentation, scalp care prevents concerns like dryness, flaking and hair loss.
Taking care of your tresses and taking care of your scalp are two different things..
So, if up until now you haven’t given your scalp a second thought, it’s time to invest in some super scalp saviors that will nourish and protect those curly tresses you work so hard to maintain!
STEP 1: CLEANSE - SHAMPOO
Your hair follicles can easily become blocked due to dead skin cells, product buildup, and sebum, which inhibits hair growth. Proper application and distribution of shampoo on the scalp followed by circular movements to deeply cleanse the scalp and lather are key when shampooing your hair.
A good shampoo should do two things -
1. Cleanse and clear any build up and
2. Nourish and hydrate.
Almond & Shea Butter Moisturizing Shampoo contains apple cider vinegar for deep cleansing which will purify the scalp and removes any residue build up from styling products. It also contains shea butter which will deeply moisturizing while repairing damage to the hair and scalp.
STEP 2: MOISTURIZE - SCALP MASK
Scalp care goes beyond just shampooing your hair. Just like you'd use a mask on your face, a scalp mask is packed with problem-fighting ingredients that will boost your scalp health.
As the name suggests,Honey Ginger Protein Treatment contains ginger which is a natural anti-inflammatory and has antiseptic properties for healthy hair and a healthy scalp. It also contains peppermint, a natural moisturizer that eliminates dandruff and deeply moisturizes.
STEP 3: INVEST - TREATMENT
The most important step when investing in scalp health is a quality treatment. The idea of putting oil on your scalp may seem scary but could actually counteract over-active sebum production and stimulate healthy hair growth by starting at the follicle.
Kurlee Tropical Oils Blend contains Moringa which is great for cleansing pollutants and delivering moisture deep into the scalp to prevent dryness and flaking.
