The natural hair industry is getting huge. I mean in it now seems like each week there is a new product coming out. It’s sometimes hard to even tell what would and what would not work on your hair. But, I notice you can easily forget about the scalp. Scalp is where build up occurs, where hair growth blossoms and where skin problems can easily happen. You might not know this but there are certain products that really isn’t necessary to even go on your scalp. It’s important to take the time to take care of your scalp because without it being maintained it can lead to hair loss, dandruff, or psoriasis.
- Your Wash day routine is important. By taking the time to wash your hair regularly whether that’s once a week or every two weeks or even more. I want to make sure your hair is washed regularly but not too much unless you are swimming consistently with your hair out.
- Scalp massages to help the blood circulation throughout the scalp which relaxes your muscles. What’s even better is how good it feels on your scalp. Scalp massages also help with hair growth. You can easily do a massage with fingertips in a circular motion or they even have products that can help with a good scalp massage as well.
- Tea tree oil w/ carrier oil. I discuss this a little bit more in my how to do a hot oil treatment but using the ingredient tea tree oil with castor oil can help with dry scalp issues. Tea tree oil has antimicrobial properties in it that can repair the dry scalp areas.
- Sulfate & paraben free shampoo & conditioner. Using organic ingredients work well but simply checking for the ingredients can help tell whether a product will be good for your scalp.
