The Root Cause: How a Healthy Scalp Gives You Healthy Hair

Healthy Hair, Healthy Scalp

Our scalp is the soil through which the garden of our hair thrives. A strong and healthy foundation ensures a flourishing garden, and likewise a strong and healthy scalp ensures our hair has the best possible environment to grow.

Signs of imbalanced scalp health can include:


Many people would consider their hair to be their crowning glory. Whether it’s with hair dyes, hair products, or hair treatments, our scalp tends to bear the brunt of the consequences of our daily grooming habits. The truth is, a haircare routine that focuses solely on your hair condition and appearance may be compromising your scalp health.

Here are some ways to keep both your hair and your scalp healthy:

Wash your hair every 2-3 days

Maintaining balanced pH levels strengthens the hair follicles and reduces hair fall and breakage.

Frequent washing can strip your scalp of its natural oils and cause your scalp to produce even more oil to compensate. This can lead to a greasier appearance and disrupt the natural balance of your scalp.

Of course, it may vary from person-to-person and their individual scalp and hair type, but on average, it is recommended to wash your hair every 2-3 days.

Avoid abrasive ingredients

Many haircare brands today tout a laundry list of ‘x-ingredient-free’ formulations, but are they really chemical-free?

Sulfates, surfactants, parabens and phthalates have long been household ingredients, but recent research has shown that these can have detrimental effects on your hair health.

Sulfates, in particular, strip your hair of its natural oils and protective barrier.

Be gentle when washing

Luxurious hair washing isn’t just reserved for your visit to the salon or barber! There’s a reason why it feels so good, and that’s because your scalp needs that TLC every once and a while.

Take the time during your shower to gently massage your scalp as you shampoo to stimulate blood circulation and allow thorough absorption of your shampoo’s beneficial ingredients.
