The health of your scalp determines the nature of your hair: dry or oily. A healthy lifestyle and care adapted to your scalp will improve the appearance and quality of your hair.
Dry and sensitive scalp
Dry or damaged scalp is common: it can be naturally dry, but also have been dehydrated by an aggressive environment.
The pollution as well as the colorations are mainly responsible for the drying of the scalp as a result of possible irritation and small dead skin, as well as dull, brittle and fragile hair … But with good habits and good care for your scalp, it gets better!
First, get into the habit of using mild, alcohol-free shampoos so you do not needlessly attack your scalp. Even with a mild shampoo, limit the frequency of washing your hair.
Do not forget that your diet has an impact on the quality of your scalp as well. If it is dry, do not hesitate to consume more fish, nuts or even rapeseed oil, rich in omega 3.
A greasy scalp is characterized by overactivity of the sebaceous glands located at the root of the hair, responsible for the production of sebum. This overproduction is usually due to stress, sleep disturbance or hormonal imbalance. This is for example a type of scalp common in people during puberty or menopause.
How to spot a greasy scalp? It’s simple: your hair greases quickly, is heavy, and often has a dandruff tendency. To treat your oily scalp, you can opt for a shampoo specially designed for oily hair and / or dandruff, but do not use it excessively.
Use it 1 in 3 washings, and keep a mild shampoo the rest of the time while spacing your shampoos as much as possible …
Just like dry hair, avoid exposure to too high temperatures, which will dry up the scalp and thus encourage the sebaceous glands to produce even more sebum to compensate.
