What You Need to Know About Dry Scalp

With spring in full bloom and summer just around the corner, temperatures are heating up! That means weather changes & outdoor activities. One of the most common questions we receive during our spring & summer time haircuts revolve around the dry scalp. We thought we would share the basics of what to know with Dry Scalp, or as its more common name, Dandruff.

Causes & Treatments

The main causes of Dandruff can be divided between internal & external factors.

Starting with the internal factors such as poor diet, dehydration, hereditary inheritance & hormonal changes like puberty. In these instances, you can’t change what you were born with so treatment is your only option. Dandruff due to the genetic dry scalp can be easily treated with specifically targeted scalp treatments. For example, Tea Tree Hair & Scalp treatment. It combats the fungus that causes dandruff while conditioning the scalp to prevent any flakiness. After using your regular shampoo, replace your traditional conditioner with Tea Tree Hair & Scalp treatment.

External factors can range from stress, weather changes & product build up. In these instances, prevention is more beneficial than treatment. With that said it’s important to maintain a recommended balance of water intake per day. Eating healthy and well-balanced means limiting high sugary & high salt foods. Eating healthy also means eating the right foods like fatty acids. Foods rich in vitamin B are essential to maintaining a healthy scalp. Also, we are all guilty from time to time to take long hot showers with excessive shampooing. It is important to remember in these instances moderation is key to balancing a healthy happy scalp.

Following these easy steps and educating yourself on the early warning signs can help you maintain a shining happy healthy head of hair!
