The statement above is true. I have seen more and more cases of scalp issues over the past several years. As a whole, most people have gone far away from sulfates and parabens. Which is better for your hair and body. Many people are using sud-free cleansers. We are making healthier hair choices.
If you have ever visited Beauty for Ashes Salon, then you know we believe that sud free cleansers have their place. I use both sud and sud free hair cleansers. Predominately I am using suds though. Not that one is better than the other. I just find that suds work better for my scalp and hair. I know that our bodies are different and so is our scalps. What works well for one may not work well for the other.
Unless you have an issue with your scalp like itchiness or flakes, you're probably not too concerned about it. Well, I want to suggest that you should. It wasn’t until I started treating those with hair loss, that I became more aware of the importance of scalp care.
When I would do a hair and scalp analysis on clients who seemingly with the naked eye appeared to have a healthy scalp, was not under the Tricho Analyzer aka microscope. This made me raise an eye. It also gave me the scientific proof that all things are not what they appear to be. This also allowed me to be able to do preventive hair and scalp care. Knowing what is going on with your scalp in advance can help with issues that in the long run will show up with hair problems latter.
If you look around on all forms of media, the number one focus is hair care. You won’t really see much about scalp care. Treating your scalp goes beyond the traditional hot oil treatment or greasing or oiling your scalp. Knowing what to use on your scalp and why are important.
Just like your face, your scalp can be oily, dry, or combination. You can have flakes if your scalp is oily or dry. Your scalp can be itchy and not flake. Also, your scalp can change based on the time of a year and with age. Yes, your scalp can age!
I want to suggest that you put as much thought into your scalp as you do your hair. This may mean that you may have to switch up your hairstyle. If you know that after getting your hair braided your scalp becomes sore and inflamed, you might not want to do that anymore. If you wear your hair in a ponytail all the time and you notice when you take it down your scalp is sore you might want to switch it up.
Pain is the body's way of saying ouch…. LOL versatility is great and fun, just make sure you are listening to your scalp’s cry. Always remember that your hair grows out of your scalp, and your scalp is just as important as you hair. Just some food for thought
I value your scalp just as much as I value your hair!
