How to Take Care of Your Scalp Skin Naturally
Scalp-care is the new haircare. Taking care of your scalp skin is essential for strong and healthy hair. Scalp skin creates a suitable environment for hair growth. If your scalp skin isn’t healthy, neither is your hair.
Some signs of poor scalp skin health include increased buildup, irritation on the scalp, and excessive flaking. Overtime, if these concerns are left unaddressed, they can cause severe damage to the hair follicle.
To maintain healthy scalp skin, it is imperative to use the right products that moisturize the scalp naturally. Lucky for you, Botanic Hearth has carefully selected 5 products you can use to take care of your scalp skin naturally.
3 Products for Scalp-Care
A good shampoo does wonders for scalp-care. What you want to look for in a shampoo is natural ingredients that don’t strip your scalp of its natural oils.
Botanic Hearth Tea Tree Shampoo falls perfectly in this category of shampoos. Formulated with tea tree essential oil, which is known for its antioxidant properties, this shampoo cleanses the scalp while maintaining its moisture.
This shampoo is quite gentle on the hair, making it suitable for daily use. Cleansing your scalp regularly can help prevent buildup, ensuring the hair follicles have enough room to breathe and grow.
2. Coconut Oil
Sometimes, it’s best to get to the root of the problem. Literally. Your scalp-care routine should always start with moisture, especially if your scalp is prone to dryness.
Coconut Oil is a popular carrier oil known for its moisturizing properties. Using products with coconut oil can help to restore moisture to the scalp, avoiding concerns such as excessive flaking.
Usually, coconut oil is applied to the scalp before a wash. You can heat up the oil in a bowl and apply it to the scalp to speed up its absorption. Leave it in your hair for upto 45 minutes and then wash with a good shampoo. Doing this twice a week will vastly improve your scalp-care and haircare routines.
3. Hair Masks
Hair masks have been an essential part of haircare since their inception. Hair masks are multi-purpose products that are intended to cleanse, moisturize, and strengthen the hair. Contrary to popular belief, hair masks are not just for haircare but also for scalp care.
Botanic Hearth has a wide selection of hair masks that are excellent for scalp-care. The Keratin Hair Mask, for starters, contains numerous cleansing and purifying ingredients that draw impurities and buildup out of the scalp. It contains ingredients like Biotin and Coconut Oil which have restorative properties to replenish your scalp.
To use this mask, wash your hair thoroughly. Then, on damp hair, apply the mask from root to tip. Evenly distribute the mask through the length of the hair. Leave it in for 5 minutes and rinse it thoroughly.
Another beneficial hair mask is the Tea Tree Hair Mask, which is a deep conditioning mask. It provides intense and deep hydration to the scalp and hair, reviving smoothness, softness and shine.
You can use this mask to exfoliate the scalp. Apply the mask from root to tip. After this, take a small, circular detangling brush and rub your scalp in circular motions. Do this very gently for upto 5 minutes. After your massage is done, rinse the mask out of your hair thoroughly. This technique is excellent for a flaky scalp.
