With winter around the corner – most of us from all across the country are bracing for some of the toughest months for our skin and hair. The dry winter air causes the skin to pull, stretch, itch and flake. The impact of dryness doesn’t end with our skin.
The dry air also directly impacts our scalp and hair, sapping moisture and making it harder for our locks to stay hydrated. For older individuals, the colder weather also leads to lowered blood circulation to the scalp and follicles, making it even harder for the skin of the scalp to do its job to nourish hair as it grows out.
While winter is as good a time as ever to start on the journey of scalp care, it’s important to remember that due to our modern lifestyles, it’s essential to pay extra care and attention to scalp care. Since your scalp is the place where your hair originates, taking good care of it can ensure you nourish and protect your hair right from the root.
Scalp vs skin
Let’s take a moment to consider how differently we treat the skin on our head vs the skin on our face. A normal day out would entail washing, cleansing, toning, moisturizing and even applying a layer of sunscreen on your face. What about the scalp? Most of us are used to simply washing, conditioning and maybe occasionally using hair oil every other day. Surely, our scalps deserve more care and attention than just the occasional oiling and washing that we perform out of obligation to our haircare routines.
How to care for your scalp?
There are some crucial factors to consider before finding the right scalp nourisher. Some of the most important factors to consider are:
- . Nourishment and hydration
- . Hairfall control
- . pH balance
- . Dandruff Control
We know that it can be a little overwhelming to look into all of these factors while caring for your scalp. To take complete care of your scalp, you would normally have to apply a range of products to address each of these concerns on an individual level. At The Earth Collective, we thought about the issue of scalp care and came up with a multi-level solution to address all the scalp concerns that you might have.
