Ways To Improve Scalp Health and the BasicsMonday, March 07, 2016
Scalp health tends to get overlooked and is slightly underrated - why? Because many still carry the misconception that a dirty scalp equates to more growth and longer hair. This is wrong! The truth is, a healthy scalp is the foundation to healthier hair.
In reality, our scalp doesn't require much! It just needs the basics:
- to be thoroughly cleaned
- to be stimulated regularly
This year I've taken a liking to re-educating myself on scalp health and improving the way I "treat" my scalp on a weekly basis. When I say scalp, I'm also including my edges and hairline in that category. I've never had scalp issues i.e. itchy scalp, dandruff, etc. but I thought I would step my game up - just a little.
Lately, I've been using Shea Moisture African Black Soap Dry Scalp Elixir throughout my scalp (2-3x/week) as it helps to exfoliate and detoxify the scalp helping to remove build up. We all know less build up means more growth. If you are one who experiences dryness, itching and soreness in the scalp, this is for you! Nouritress ER Edge Repair Night Drops is formulated to strengthen and stimulate the capillaries that supply blood to the scalp and hair follicles to help nourish weak follicles. I'm testing this out as it's supposed to be great for those who have weak edges.
Now the Scalp Invigorator is another treat to a healthier scalp as it vibrates (when turned on) to lift dead skin cells - get this, it's formulated for the shower! I have yet to use it in the shower with my shampoo, but I have been using it on dry hair as part of my "regular" scalp massage for extra stimulation. Can't wait to try shampooing with it.
