NATURAL HAIR: IS IT BETTER FOR YOUR SCALP?

Relaxing or perming your hair can be a great way to express your style- but it could also have negative effects on your hair, and may cause the scalp to lose moisture, leading to dryness.

Problems with chemical hair treatments

Because they’re designed to change your hair’s natural chemistry, you may experience issues with relaxers and perm treatments, including:

  • breakage

  • hair loss

  • hair thinning

  • irritation

  • dryness

When you relax or perm your hair, your scalp can also be stripped of its natural moisture and may become damaged.

That’s a problem for hair as well - an unhealthy scalp produces unhealthy hair that’s more vulnerable to breakage.

So, for healthy hair, it’s really important to take good care of your scalp.

Healthy hair comes from a healthy scalp

When your scalp is healthy, your hair can be healthy. One way of preserving your hair and scalp’s natural health is to limit the use of harsh chemicals.
