An important aspect of haircare is recognising that pretty much all problems can be traced back to the scalp. The scalp is where it all begins! Unfortunately, when it comes to haircare, so many of us easily dismiss the importance of scalp health. From shampoos to conditioners, hair serums, and other haircare products — our efforts are, too often, focused only on our strands. We forget that a healthy scalp will automatically yield healthy hair.
Well, if you’ve been neglecting your scalp for too long, it’s time to change that. Here are some useful scalp care tips.
Cleanse With Care
How you cleanse your scalp can make all the difference. Naturally, you don’t want your scalp’s natural oils to get depleted; neither do you want it to be too greasy. Shampooing too much can lead to a dry scalp and not shampooing enough can make it too greasy. So striking the right balance is important. Of course, how often you should shampoo will also depend on the season and other environmental factors.
Another important thing to keep in mind when cleansing your scalp is to prioritise using sulphate-free shampoos. Sulphate-free shampoos tend to retain the moisture and oils in your scalp. Godrej Professional has two sulphate-free shampoos, which are also suitable for professional hair colour, thatyou can consider using:
- Keracare Recharge Shampoo for all hair types.
- Keracare Repair Shampoo for chemically-treated hair.
Of course, shampoo is no good without a conditioning mask! For best results, pair Godrej Professional shampoos with the following sulphate-free masks:
- Keracare Repair Mask
- Keratin Rich Mask
Just as your skin needs to be regularly exfoliated, your scalp does too. Exfoliation is an important part of any haircare routine as it helps get rid of dead cells, which boosts hair growth. You can simply combine this with the cleansing process. After applying a sulphate-free shampoo, use a brush with soft rubber tips or massage in circular motions using your fingertips. This will remove dead skin cells from your scalp. You can also use a keratin shampoo to nourish your scalp with proteins.
Massage For More Blood Circulation
Increasing blood circulation is key to a healthy scalp as well as hair growth. Increased blood circulation automatically means that more oxygen is being delivered to your scalp, and this is something your hair totally needs! All you have to do is massage your scalp with hair oil once a week, or more, depending on your requirement. Take a small amount of oil in your palms and massage it gently into your scalp. Move your finger in circular motions. This will allow the oil to settle into your scalp, thereby increasing blood circulation and nourishing the roots of your hair. Consider using Godrej Professional’s Acai Oil or Nourish Shine Argan Oil for best results.
At the end of the day, scalp health and hair health go hand in hand. While cleansing and massaging are two ways to keep the scalp healthy, you’ll need a whole bunch of haircare products to keep your luscious locks in check. From keratin shampoo and mask to hair sprays and serums, Godrej Professional has a wide range of products. Visit the website to make the most of some exclusive deals!
