With awareness about the importance of a healthy scalp growing, haircare companies bring this commonly neglected area to the forefront in new launches.

A healthy scalp is the foundation for thick and luscious hair. Similar to our skin, the scalp needs attention—especially if you’re experiencing irrita- tion or thinning hair. Think of your scalp as the soil that a plant grows in; the more nourished the soil, the better crop—or in this case, the better the head of hair. Here are some of the top scalp nourishing helpers to integrate into your regimen this fall.

TIP 1: DON’T WASH YOUR HAIR AT NIGHT!

Although it’s pretty common to wash your hair before bed and let it air dry, this is allows for sebum to develop, which in turn clogs hair fol- licles on your scalp. Either avoid the night-time shampoo, or simply blow dry your hair to keep your scalp free of additional oil-related clogging.

 

TIP 2: GO BUILD-UP FREE

Avoid applying styling products close to and on the scalp area in order. This will help keep the scalp free of product buildup, which can stagnate hair growth. 

ID CHECK!

Did you know that before hair colouring became popular in the beauty industry, hair colour was listed as a passport requirement? Hair dyeing used to be relatively rare, especially as the chemicals used early on were often dan- gerously harsh. However, with improved ingredients and changing beauty trends, at- home hair colour became so popular by the late 1960s that hair colour no longer was a prerequisite for passports.
