Guide to Scalp care

Want to improve your scalp care routines? Here to help! Find out what our top scalp care tips and products are.

Skincare is often the first thing we think of when it comes to our daily beauty routines. We don’t give our scalps the attention they deserve! Your scalp is just as important for healthy, glossy hair. If you want to improve your hair care routine, start at the roots – which means giving extra attention to your head.

The signs of a healthy scalp

You may have a scalp that is in poor condition if you notice flakes, irritation, redness or excess oil. You will first need to determine what scalp problems you are trying to address. Consult your stylist or dermatologist when in doubt if you are unable to determine what is wrong.

Hair care products for scalp

These are the top products we use for hair and scalp. Happy scalp = happy hair. If your scalp is not in the best condition, your hair will look and feel like it. Read on to save your scalp.

Aesop Scalp treatment

Aesop’s Sage & Cedar Scalp treatment is a product that can be used as a pre-shampoo to take care of delicate scalps. The product is enhanced with botanical oils that are known for their purifying and soothing properties. It is most suitable for scalps that are reactive, dry, and distressed. Brush dry hair before using this scalp treatment. This will help to remove dirt and detangle. Massage one pipette on the scalp for up to 15 minutes.

The Ordinary Serum Multi-Peptide for Hair Density

The Ordinary Hair serum, a personal favourite of mine is an amazing way to hydrate your scalp and moisturise it without feeling as if it will weight your hair down or cause it to look greasy. This serum is great to use after washing my hair. I rub it into my scalp, and it stays there while my hair’s still wet. This concentrated formula supports hair health to make it look thicker, fuller, and healthier. This is a leave on/in formula. After application, do not rinse hair or scalp.

Briogeo Scalp Revival Charcoal and Coconut Oil Micro-exfoliating Scalp Scrub Shampoo

The Briogeo products are amazing. I was recently given the opportunity to try them as part of a Mecca Beauty Loop package. These products are natural and full of essential nutrients that soothe your scalp and hair. You’ll be as amazed by Briogeo products as I was. Their Scalp Rejuvenation is an exfoliating charcoal shampoo with coconut oil. It is great for removing impurities, dead cells, and excess oil from your hair and scalp. This shampoo helps to absorb key vitamins and minerals that are essential for hair health. It also balances the scalp’s hydration, whether you have an oily or a dry scalp.

Briogeo Scalp Rejuvenation Stimulating Therapy massager

Briogeo also offers a handheld massage tool that is perfect for adding to your scalp-care routine. This tool can be used on wet or dry hair, and in conjunction with shampoos, oils, or treatments for the ultimate massage experience. This helps to stimulate blood flow, which increases circulation in your scalp and promotes healthier, thicker hair.

Treatment for your hair begins from the inside

In addition to topical products, the best way to maintain a healthy scalp is to monitor and care for your gut. Even if your diet is well-balanced and rich, any disruption in digestion will affect your hair. Poor gut flora can lead to hair loss and thinning.

Beauty Dew Hair, Skin & Nail Support Liquid Supplement

This liquid formula is ingestible and contains a form of Silica that is highly bio-available, along with Black Rice Flower and Cactus Flowers. Beauty Dew is a naturopathic formula that helps nourish and strengthen hair by increasing collagen synthesis. Take one tablespoon of Beauty Dew in 200 mls water or juice after meals.

Towel and pillowcase swapping

After I changed out my traditional hair towel, I noticed that both my hair and scalp looked better. Silk pillowcases are not only good for hair but also for skin, which is an added bonus! Use a hair turban in place of your blow dryer!

Aquis Rapid Dry Turban

The lightweight, chic and absorbent turban reduces hair drying by 50%. It does this without rubbing the hair or heating it. The turban is made of Aquitex fabric which prevents hygral exhaustion, which can cause hair to stretch and swell, causing frizz and split ends. Hair looks smoother and softer. Curls are more defined and have more bounce. Locks are protected from frizz.

Pure Silk Pillowcase

This silky pillowcase cushions your skin and hair while you sleep. Slip’s silk pillowcase is shown to be less absorbent and cause less friction. It’s the ideal way to sleep without compromising your beauty routine.
