The secret to strong, healthy hair actually begins with a healthy scalp. Maintaining a clean scalp is just as important as maintaining your hair and can be affected by your environment, diet, medications and how often you style your hair. For those that have had hair transplants, dermatologists have observed that transplanted follicles grow better in healthy scalp skin than in scarred areas. If you want long luscious locks, you have to start with the scalp. Here are five tips for top-notch scalp care:
- Clean Your Scalp
Your scalps condition affects the health and appearance of your hair so it’s important to make sure you’re keeping it clean. The hair and scalp actually create more bacteria, dirt, oil and dead skin cells than any other area of our bodies. Shampoo your hair to clear away product build up and bacteria that can cause dry, itchy scalp. Shampooing also loosens dead skin and washes away oil and dirt sitting on your scalp, preventing flaking and dandruff. We recommend Gen-Tecs Volumizing Glycolic Shampoo or Physician Strength Shampoo, available at Hans Wiemann. These shampoos are designed to repair and maintain the natural acidic pH of the hair and scalp. The hair and scalp create more bacteria, dirt, oil and dead skin cells than any other area of our bodies. Your hair and scalp should have a natural acidic pH that ranges between 4.0 and 5.0. When washing your hair use the pads of your fingers and rub in a circular motion to improve blood circulation in the scalp then rinse with cool water.
- Moisturize Your Scalp
Some people may worry that conditioner weighs down their hair and clogs pores. However, just like your hair, your scalp needs hydration too. Dermatologists suggest using a non-comedogenic conditioner after a wash and apply starting at the tips of your locks moving to the roots. Utilize a foamy or spray-on leave-in conditioner to prevent weighing down fine hair. Add a drop of natural oil, such as argon oil, to your leave in conditioner to lock in extra moisture that will last throughout the day. The Hans Wiemann line of Gen-Tecs products also features a Deep Repair Protein Conditioner, fortified with Pantheone and Keratin Amino Acids to restore moisture.
Your scalp’s epidermis is just like the rest of your skin and sometimes need to be exfoliated to loosen dead skin cells. Use a couple spoonfuls of sugar or cinnamon in your shampoo and massage your scalp in a circular motion for a couple minutes with the pads of your fingers. Don’t scrub with your fingertips as this can cause unintentional scabbing. This massaging motion along with the grainy mixture will exfoliate your scalp, loosen dead skin cells, and increase blood flow to the hair follicles, which promotes hair growth.
- Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle
Regular exercise and a healthy diet are important in helping maintain a healthy scalp and luscious hair. Doctors recommend at least 30 minutes of exercise four to five times a week. They also suggest eating a balanced diet with foods that are rich in omega-3, fish oil, biotin, zinc, B vitamins, essential fatty acids, protein and iron. Also, wear a hat if you’re going to be exposed to the sun for a length of time to prevent sun damage.
