We have lived with our scalp for ages but have we given it much notice? Maybe you have suffered from dandruff and had to look at it. Whatever the reason, our scalp usually is one of the last things we care for. Our scalp is an important part of our wellbeing and so we thought it was important to share some quick facts with you!

Your scalp produces sebum which moisturizes and protects your skin from infection.

When the scalp is not cleansed well with a balanced routine, buildup of dead skin, sebum, dirt and product residue can put your scalp at risk for infection.

The average scalp ages 6 times faster than facial skin.

The health of your scalp effects the health of your hair.

An aging scalp loses the ability to hold moisture which can lead to hair thinning.

When your body experiences stress such as a new medication, traumatic event, illness or a change in your diet, your hair follicle goes into a premature resting phase of hair growth. After three to six months you may see your hair falling out in handfuls. Typically this is not permanent hair loss and the hair will grow back.

Stimulating the scalp with massage or brushing promotes blood flow which aids in a healthy scalp and healthy hair growth.

Your scalp contains a natural microbiome that helps prevent conditions like eczema. A common sign of the microbiome being unbalanced is dandruff and irritation.

All these being said, if you are concerned about the condition of your scalp we have solutions to help. A good discussion with your stylist should get to the bottom of the issue and a prescriptive shampoo from Davines can be recommended. We want you to LOVE your hair and scalp.
