A prerequisite for beautiful hair is the health of the scalp. The magic move is exfoliation, because as the scalp is made up of skin, dead cells must be removed to produce new ones and renew the area. But that is not all. Various substances are applied to the scalp, such as natural oils, ointments, residues from styling or hair care products. Excessive accumulation of such particles can lead to inflammation of the scalp, flaking, itching and even hypersensitivity or pain.
The exfoliation techniques
- Hair scrub: is a new category of products containing natural granules to remove dead cells and dirt. We can buy or make our own with sea salt or sugar combined with coconut oil or jojoba oil. Massage into the roots of the hair and then shampoo.
- Shampoo for deep cleansing: are necessary to remove any residual stylization even from past uses.
- Shampoo with tea tree oil or salicylic acid: tea tree oil helps to remove natural fat and residues and has anti-inflammatory properties. Salicylic acid has a sebaceous action and removes dead cells.
- The importance of hydration: Just as after a scrub or deep cleansing on the face, moisturizing follows, so should the scalp exfoliation. The dead cells are gone and the healthy ones are ready to absorb the care we’re about to offer. The best nourishment is provided by special oils for the scalp. If you want individual oils choose tea tree or lavender essential oil.
