Did you know that scalp skin ages 6 times faster than the rest of your skin? I know, I was shocked too! Often, we obsess over our skin routines but totally neglect taking care of our scalp.
Whatever your hair type; is thick, fine, wavy, or curly, moisturizing your scalp is the key to keeping it healthy. As a rule of thumb: moisture to the scalp is like water to the soil. If you ignore moisturization, it will more likely take a toll on your hair.
Some women avoid moisturizing their scalp because they have a misconception that moisturization equals greasiness, or that moisturization only belongs to hair. But moisturizing your scalp is just as important, and if you are doing it the right way, with the right products; your scalp should not be greasy - It should feel fresh.
If you are one of these women, let us take you on a tour to show you the bad side of dehydration, the benefits of moisturizing the scalp and the products you need to get it right.
Your Scalp without Moisturization
Have you ever felt that your scalp is annoyingly tight? Or that you want to scratch it so bad? It can be embarrassing and extremely uncomfortable! But don’t ignore such symptoms as they might imply that you have poor hair hydration.
If you don’t moisturize your scalp, it will probably get very dry, itchy, and flaky. And this will reflect on your hair health too! So, it will start appearing dull and more prone to breakage, damage and fall.
Don’t underestimate the power of moisture on the scalp to prevent dermatological issues, in addition to maintaining healthy hair strands.
Benefits of Moisture for Scalp & Hair
Sometimes we forget that the scalp is similar to the skin, in the sense that both need hydration to avoid the feeling of roughness. One of the most important benefits of moisture is that it gets rid of scalp dryness, and replaces it with a soothing and fresh sensation
When the scalp is clean from dandruff-causing fungus, it won’t itch and put you in embarrassing situations, especially in outings or business meetings. Additionally, your hair will start to breathe and feel light on your head. No more tightness and irritation.
As for the hair, moisturization can do magic! It solves the problem of frizz, giving you more control over your hair. Further, it will reduce the possibility of breakage and damage caused by styling, while increasing the hair strength, softness, and elasticity.
Where to Find the Right Moisture for your Scalp
The best hair moisturizers are those that were specifically developed to fight the problem of scalp dryness.
If you want an easy-to-use and effective product, we recommend the collection of Head & Shoulders Supreme Shampoo and Conditioner. This product works so well on scalp skin that it was the first shampoo brand to win a skin award.
This collection is formulated with Argan oil, which is popular for its deep moisturization on the hair and scalp. It addresses dullness and frizz issues, as well as soothing the scalp from itchiness and irritation. Not only this but also it provides your hair with the needed nourishment to maintain its strength and shininess. There is a reason why Argan Oil is considered the Moroccan Liquid Gold!
