Why Your Scalp Health Is the First Step to Healthy Hair

Want healthy and bouncy hair? Here’s why you need to prioritize your scalp health to solve your hair concerns.

Do you struggle with breakage, dullness and irritation despite a carefully curated hair care routine in place? An overburdened scalp could be the culprit behind many of your hair woes. Many of us are guilty of neglecting our scalp, which can sabotage our hair goals in the long run. From pollution and stress to heat exposure and chemical-laden products, our scalp goes through a lot on a daily basis. All these factors can have an adverse impact on your scalp health–leaving it clogged and inflamed. This, in turn, can lead to problems like dandruff, itching, hair damage and even hair fall. If you want to keep these issues at bay and restore vitality and shine to your hair, you need to prioritize your scalp health and give it the TLC it deserves. 

How to boost your scalp health?

Prioritizing your scalp health is the foundation of any effective hair care routine. Here is how you can nourish your scalp and restore balance:

Give your scalp a deep detox 

If you are facing a lot of hair issues, there is a high probability that your scalp is overburdened and in desperate need of a detox. The accumulation of oils, dead skin cells and styling products can cause irritation and itching, thus disrupting the balance of your scalp. A deep hair detox can help rebalance your scalp’s pH, regulate natural oil production and soothe inflammation. If you are looking for an instant scalp detox, you can try our Rice+Chai Refresh Spray. Infused with concentrated antioxidant-rich Black and Green Chai, this spray reduces scalp itchiness and dryness, while gently exfoliating your scalp. If you are plagued by an excessively oily scalp, you must add this product to your hair care routine. It works as a natural, healthier alternative to dry shampoo because it effectively refreshes your roots by absorbing excess oil with the help of potent ingredients like rice starch and reetha soapnuts. You can also try our Balancing Clay Hair Cleanser to keep your scalp healthy and squeaky clean. Formulated with 15+ high-performing active Ayurvedic herbs, oils and flowers, this clay-to-lather shampoo deeply cleanses your scalp and gets rid of impurities and buildup. It is the perfect solution for anyone looking to restore their hair’s natural vitality without disrupting the scalp's pH or oil production.

Nourish your scalp with a hydrating product

One of the best ways to boost your scalp health is to keep it hydrated and nourished. You must add hydrating products to your hair care regimen as they are packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and other nourishing botanical extracts that can do wonders for your scalp health. By delivering essential nutrients directly to the scalp, these products help tackle issues like dryness, irritation and inflammation. Plus, they also strengthen the natural barrier function of your scalp. Are you searching for a product that can replenish your scalp? Try our Scalp+Hair Prewash. Formulated with 35+ potent Ayurvedic herbs, oils and flowers, this gentle prewash deeply nourishes the hair and scalp, reducing excess heat and promoting healthy hair growth.

Get a scalp massage

If you want to boost your scalp health, you need to indulge in regular scalp massages. The benefits of scalp massages are endless—they promote blood circulation, reduce product buildup, remove dead skin cells and stimulate hair growth. Massage your scalp regularly with your fingertips or a scalp massager. You can massage your scalp while washing your hair or use essential oils for a relaxing massage on hot summer days. Using a wooden comb is another excellent way to boost blood circulation and promote scalp health. Try our Handmade Neem Wood Comb. Made out of the bark of a Neem tree, a medicinal plant native to the Indian subcontinent, this comb can boost circulation in your scalp and improve the overall health and appearance of your hair.
