WHAT MAKES A HEALTHY SCALP?

Keeping your scalp healthy means treating it as well as you do the rest of your skin. Treat yourself to a bit of TLC and get a healthier looking scalp and hair.

By now, we’re pretty used to the classic skincare routine of cleanse, tone and moisturize. The difference is noticeable. Our skin is softer, it doesn’t peel or flake, spots are reduced, and breakouts are prevented. But our skin doesn’t stop at our hairline. The same factors that comprise healthy skin on your face, or any other part of your body, are just as important for your scalp. That’s why you need to take steps to ensure it stays healthy and nourished.

Healthy scalp in 3 easy steps

Step 1

Cleanse. Frequent and thorough cleansing is a good way to make sure you’re regularly removing dirt and environmental irritants, like dust, smoke and pollution, that can bother your skin.

Step 2

Moisturize. A dry and flaky scalp can cause irritation, which we react to by scratching. If we scratch too much, we’ll damage the skin’s surface and weaken our hair. A little moisture can go a long way.

Step 3

Protect. Skin needs protection in-between washes. Your scalp is still exposed to those same irritants that cause itching and discomfort. That means you need protection that lasts outside of the shower to help keep your scalp balanced.

What’s the difference between the skin on your face and skin on your scalp?

The biggest difference is above the surface of the skin. There’s much more hair on your scalp which blocks light and traps air, making the space darker, warmer, and more humid.

This can make your scalp skin even more demanding than your facial skin and that’s why you need to give it special care. The moist environment of your scalp creates the best situation for dandruff-causing fungus to thrive.

Itch can be an early sign of an unbalanced scalp. Using Head & Shoulders regularly helps restore the scalp’s balance. Head and Shoulders is clinically proven to improve the condition of scalp skin and keep it in top condition.

Use Head & Shoulders Smooth & Silky Shampoo and Conditioner every time you shampoo and show your scalp some love – your hair will love it too!
