Once I Paid Attention to my Scalp Health, my Hair Game Changed Forever

Don't forget about your scalp!

So, you wash and dry your strands, but your hair still feels limp and lifeless? Trust me, I’ve been there too and it’s so frustrating. But did you know the problem might not even be your hair? It could be starting right at the root, literally. Once I started to pay attention to my scalp health, everything changed. The condition of your scalp is such a game-changer when it comes to hair care. Keep scrolling to find out how:

Scalp Health for Weighed-Down Strands

A scalp scrub can change your strands.

If you feel like you’ve tried every trick but your strands continue to feel weighed down no matter what you do, your best option is trying a scalp scrub. A scalp scrub will help get rid of any build-up on your scalp, which could be weighing down your strands. I love using Nexxus Clean & Pure Invigorating Detox Scalp Scrub. After I use it, there’s definitely a noticeable difference in my hair. My strands feel more voluminous and lightweight all around.

All you have to do is use the scrub once every other week before you shampoo and condition. Wet your hair, massage the product into your scalp, and then rinse. It’s so easy to use, you’ll be hooked after.

For a Dry, Itchy Scalp

Revive your scalp with a serum.

Is your scalp feeling dry and itchy, but you don’t have any dandruff? A scalp serum can help solve this problem. Use RE-fresh Honeysuckle + Hydrate Scalp Serum. This can be applied right to your scalp for instant hydration. It will help moisturize it without causing your hair to look or feel greasy. It’s also great for any hair routine because it can be used with other oils and treatments too.

Scalp Health for Dandruff

Understand: scalp is skin. What lack of sleep and a stressful lifestyle can do to your skin also affects your scalp.

I’ve been there, you’ve probably been there… most of us have probably dealt with dandruff at some point in our life. If this is the scalp issue you’re dealing with, use Dove Dermacare Scalp Soothing Moisture Anti-Dandruff Shampoo and Conditioner. This set is a great option because the pH balanced formula helps tackle dandruff without being overly hard on your scalp. It’s just the right balance to get your scalp back in shape.

For an Oily Scalp

Try a DIY option.

Is your hair feeling too oily? Try shampooing your hair less. I know, this counterintuitive, but over-washing your hair is a thing. If you wash your hair daily, your hair and scalp can become too dry, causing your scalp to overproduce oil. Try washing your hair every other day. It’ll take time for your scalp to adjust, but it can help over time.

If that doesn’t seem to help the problem, try an aloe and lemon D.I.Y. hair mask. Mix together 3 teaspoons of aloe vera gel, 4-5 drops of lemon juice and 3 drops of tea tree oil. Leave this mask on your hair and scalp for 20 minutes, then shampoo like normal. This will help moisturize greasy strands while clearing extra oil off of your scalp. Good luck!
