Every time seasons change, there will always be various skin and scalp problems, such as dandruff, excessive scalp oil, sensitive scalp and redness, etc., which affect the hair quality and appearance. A good scalp moisturizing routine is the key.
Aside from daily hair and scalp care, scalp serum and treatments can be used for enhancements.
Daily Scalp Care
Don't scratch your scalp with nails
People with dandruff are usually accompanied by itchy scalp. If the scalp is itchy, don't scratch it with your nails, it will stimulate the scalp and cause more dandruff. When using shampoo, use your fingertips to massage the scalp, and gently rub to loosen the dandruff for wash.
Don't over cleanse
The scalp has many sebaceous glands. If you don't wash your hair, sweat, sebum, old dead skin, and dirt will accumulate in the scalp pores. Not only does it cause hair loss, but it also causes dandruff and smell.
If you have an oily scalp, it is best to wash your hair daily.And you should also pay attention to whether the foam is really rinsed off. People with dry scalp should pay attention when choosing shampoo. If the shampoo has strong cleansing power, it will be dryer and cause more dandruff; sensitive scalp do not choose scalp exfoliating products with grains.
Don't overheat your scalp
If you wash your hair with water that is too hot (above 40 degrees), it will accelerate the destruction of the protective barrier of the scalp surface, wash away normal oil secretion, and cause more dandruff. So try to wash your hair with lukewarm water. When blowing your hair, also avoid using excessively hot temperatures.
Scalp also need suncare
Ultraviolet rays can also damage the scalp. If the scalp is sunburned, it will be itchy, red, and swollen just like normal skin. Wearing a hat or a UV-blocking umbrella is fine. But if you are afraid of hot and humid, you can use different sunscreen sprays. But remember to remove them with shampoo. Prevents blocked hair follicles and causing folliculitis.
Use suitable scalp treatment product
Only use anti-dandruff shampoos will dry out your skin the more you wash, and damage the cuticle of the hair. Scalp needs moisturizing just like our facial skin, not only dry scalp, but also oily scalp. After each hair wash, massage the scalp with a special conditioner and scalp moisturizing essence, which can help hydrate the scalp and prevent dryness.
