Hello Beauties, Boy old man winter has been pretty rough on most of this year and my hair, skin and nails are not happy. The cold harsh winter has caused my skin to become extra dry and I was noticing my scalp has been much drier and itchier than normal.
One of my many focuses this year is growing my hair and keeping it healthy. Healthy hair and growth starts with a healthy scalp. Products that we use on our hair can produce buildup and that can clog pores. Hair loss, shedding, and slow growth can be caused by a buildup of hardened sebum. Hardened sebum over time can cause flaking. Weather, Stress, Central Heating and Hair Products can all affect our scalp. I see often people thinking they have dandruff when they may really have dry, flaking scalp. There is a big difference between the two. Side note watch the temperature at which you wash your hair, very hot water is a no no and can also be causing your scalp to become dry. Those who have oily hair and scalp, may be making that problem worse by over washing and washing in water that is too hot, causing the scalp to try and counteract the dryness by producing more oil. Get your scalp back in balance with this very easy and relaxing treatment.
