How to moisturize and take care of your scalp?

 Whether you have problems with your scalp or not, taking care of it is essential for the good health of your hair.

How to moisturize your scalp and take care of it?

Indeed, a healthy scalp provides a foundation for hair growth, allowing the hair fibre to be strong and solid.

Wouldn't you imagine growing your plants in dry soil? Well, it's the same with hair!

If you want to know how to take care of your scalp, you've come to the right place!

Why take care of your scalp?

A poor lifestyle, environmental pollution, stress, or an ill-adapted beauty routine can cause skin problems, and therefore also at the level of your scalp.

There is then a risk of experiencing annoyances such as the appearance of dandruff, excess sebum which will make the hair greasy, or itching.

It is, therefore, necessary to hydrate and balance the scalp. Indeed, a dehydrated scalp protects the hairless well from external aggressions. The underproduction of sebum prevents the protective barrier from forming. We can then suffer from dry and brittle hair.

Conversely, an oily scalp will produce too much sebum: the hair will then become oily at the roots and sometimes along with the hair fibre.

My tips for optimal protection

Fortunately, there are many ways to take care of your scalp. All these methods are accessible and can be used alternatively.

massage it

By performing a gentle massage, the blood flow is stimulated. The blood will be better oxygenated, and since it irrigates the hair bulb directly, it will contribute to good hair growth.

You can take advantage of the shampoo moment to massage your scalp in the shower or do it in the evening before going to bed for example.

With the pulp of your fingers, press and massage your skull with concentric gestures. In addition to doing good for your scalp, it will give you a real moment of relaxation!

Have a balanced diet

I'm not telling you anything: we are what we eat. Thus, a diet deficient in minerals can cause various and varied ailments, such as an imbalance of the scalp.

Just remember to eat a variety of foods, and to consume enough vitamin B6, vitamin E, and vitamin A.

Use appropriate hair care

When you choose your hair products, and especially your shampoos, it is essential to choose suitable products and especially gentle products.

Indeed, an overly aggressive shampoo risks irritating the scalp, which will defend itself by producing even more sebum. Similarly, silicone will smother the hair.

Choose natural products as soon as possible, and avoid the accumulation of products so as not to suffocate your scalp.

Find the right skincare routine

Avoid washing your hair every day. Try to space out your shampoos little by little, the ideal being two to three shampoos per week.

Dry shampoo can be used at the beginning to hold, but it is to be avoided because it dries out the scalp.

When rinsing,  avoid too hot water, even in winter! Use lukewarm water and avoid thermal shocks.

Outside, protect your head by wearing a beanie or hat.

Choosing the right hairbrush

The brushing step not only activates blood micro-circulation but also rids the hair of accumulated impurities.

It is, therefore, necessary to choose a soft brush, which detangles your hair without breaking it. The wooden brushes with the round pins offer a delicate massage of the scalp.

Routine to take care of your scalp

If you are just starting to rebalance your scalp, here is a routine to put in place once a week that will allow you to start on a healthy basis.

Detoxify with a hair scrub

You are surely familiar with exfoliating products for the face and body, but have you ever exfoliated your scalp? No?

However, the benefits are many. A scrub will indeed help to rid the scalp of impurities, dead skin, or product residues that lodge there. It will also boost blood circulation and loosen the roots.

You can find many scrubs dedicated to the scalp. Always favour organic brands so as not to attack this sensitive area.

Massage his scalp

Once the scrub is done and rinsed, you can massage your scalp with vegetable oil. Castor oil is great for stimulating regrowth – but beware, it's very thick and sticky – and jojoba oil is very balancing as it closes in on sebum.

You can leave on for 30 minutes, or overnight as an intense treatment, distributing the oil evenly over the lengths.

Then use a balancing shampoo. Repeat this routine once a week for a month.

Aloe vera for good hydration

For optimal hydration of your scalp, aloe vera can be your best ally for making your home remedies for moisturizing masks.

Simply apply it to the roots of your hair and massage it lightly. You can also distribute it on the ends to hydrate them.

To get the most benefits, choose 100% natural, unmodified aloe vera. You can also have your aloe vera plant at home to extract the juice!

The final word

Taking good care of your scalp, therefore, involves several steps and routines that are easy to put in place.

The most important thing: do not use stripping or overly aggressive products, which would only have positive effects in the short term, but would upset the natural balance of the scalp in the long term.
