If there are more days when your hair looks unmanageable than when you think it looks good, the problem may lie in the way you treat your scalp. Follow a scalp care routine to take care of it and give it the right amount of attention.

When was the last time you gave your skin a face mask, scrub, or double cleansing? Chances are you have had any of these treatments in the previous week, but have you ever thought about pampering your scalp in the same way?

A little effort will have a significant impact on the condition of your scalp, treating and preventing dandruff, improving your hair, and have it looking flawless.

First Phase: Cleanse Intelligently

Just like the skin on the face, the scalp can also get very dirty. Think of the dirt that remains on your face after cleansing it at the end of the day; even the scalp can reach the same level of dirt. Most of the time, your scalp tends to get very oily, as the hair follicles produce a natural oil called sebum that helps moisturize the hair and scalp.

But when the oils build up and mix with the dirt and impurities, the result is an oily scalp, making your hair look dull. Regular washing will help keep an oily scalp in check, and massaging your scalp works fantastically. When washing your hair, massage your scalp in circles with your fingertips to improve blood supply.

Second Phase: Exfoliate

Exfoliation works wonders because it softens dry skin, and the same goes for dry scalp as well. It can be beneficial if you use large amounts of styling products, which residues can build up on the scalp or allow some time to pass between washes. Like the skin on the face, the scalp can also enjoy the positive effects of a gentle exfoliating massage.

Think of all the hair products that build-up, not to mention dead skin. This leaves a feeling of dirt on the hair and prevents the strands from moving, so they lie flat. You can easily exfoliate your scalp with a fine brush or comb. Brush the scalp at the roots; make sure to act gently as too much pressure can damage your scalp and hair.

Third Phase: Hydrate

Using a conditioner on the scalp to help moisturize the skin is often considered bad practice because it clogs the pores or weighting of the more delicate hair tone. However, in the same way dry facial skin needs to be hydrated, a dry scalp also benefits from hydration.

When you wash your hair, be sure to apply the 2in1 shampoo directly to the scalp and tips (be sure to rinse thoroughly to avoid oily roots). Giving your scalp this type of targeted hydration will help manage any discomfort caused by dryness.
