Exfoliating For A Healthy Scalp

March 24, 2009 by  

We try and use the best hair products we can to look absolutely gorgeous but those products may actually be bringing our hair down instead of raising it to all new heights of volume and health. Yes, women do seek out the best rated flat iron to give their hair that sleek and smooth appearance but not taking care of your scalp can leave your hair flat, dry, and limp. This is because your scalp is an extension of your skin and should get the same care and attention as the skin on the rest of your body receives.

The hair products we use on a daily basis build up on our scalp creating a unhealthy foundation for your hair to grow in. By exfoliating your scalp you can energize the skin where your hair takes root to create a healthier environment that will grow healthier hair. Some studies have linked hair lose in women to an unhealthy scalp as well as slowed growth of hair. Once or twice a week every women should use a shampoo that contains glycolic or salicylic acid to remove that buildup of products and dead skin cells so that their scalp will be healthier for healthier hair.
