Caring for the hair never goes out of season. Of course, most women are on top of their personal care and hair game, constantly reminding themselves this universal truth: Healthy hair starts with a healthy scalp. However, the scalp is often an overlooked zone, resulting it to be a prime spot for build-up. From styling products, natural oils to sweat, these sources of build-up can block the follicle and lead to dull, flat hair and breakage. You may also have damaged the hair when you are trying different hair care products, styles, and colours. The extreme weathers can dry the hair out, and make it more vulnerable to breakage and split ends. A solution advocated by many experts is the scalp detox.
Detoxing the scalp is pretty much like cleansing the body, only it’s not an internal cleanse. When you do a deep cleanse, you detox the hair and scalp. In other words, you are removing all the build-up, dead skin cells and oils from the roots and hair.
A deep clean should be done periodically — but not daily or you will end up with scalp irritation. If you apply styling products regularly or have oily hair, you should try a weekly detox. If your hair is prone to dryness, do it every two weeks. For textured hair, you might need to detox only once every few months. Let us share with you how a deep cleanse will benefit the scalp.
1. Stimulate hair follicles
Exposure to toxic chemicals found in hair products can damage and even close hair follicles. As such, the hair growing out of these follicles may be fickle and dry, as well as break easily. Sometimes, the hair follicle may no longer produce hair, which leads to thinning hair and bald spots. If you detox your scalp, these damaged and closed hair follicles get stimulated. This can help new hair to begin growing, fill out bald spots and increase hair thickness and volume.
2. Boost hair growth
A clogged and unhealthy scalp can considerably slow down hair growth. By detoxing the scalp, you can reach deep within the pores and cleanse them, while getting rid of impurities and dirt that may slow down hair growth at the same time. Scalp detoxing can help get rid of build-up from shampoo and other products so as to refresh, rejuvenate and stimulate your scalp to boost hair growth.
3. Remove toxins
Toxins have so many invisible side effects that can show up years after exposure and may even show up on other areas of your body instead, such as joint pain, fatigue and insomnia. Detoxing your scalp is a great way to remove toxins from your body, contributing to your overall health.
4. Treat dandruff, acne and scabbing
Dandruff is very common these days. Acne and scabbing on the scalp is also a big sign that you need a scalp detox. These conditions all contribute to hair loss. In this case, all you need is a good scalp detox to get rid of the root cause of dandruff, acne and scabbing so that you can have a clean, fresh and healthy scalp.
5. Boost the immune system
A weak immune system will mean that your body cannot fight off foreign invaders and you will be subjected to frequent colds, coughs and other diseases. This can affect your productivity and cause you to miss school or work. Cleansing your scalp can help you reduce the burden on your immune system and make it stronger.
Whether your scalp is oily, dry or normal, it will benefit from an occasional deep cleansing treatment. You can think of it like an exfoliating facial. The typical shampoo may be able to clean your hair sufficiently but there is always that stubborn bit of dead skin or hair products that clog your pores which can take some effort to clean off. It is therefore helpful to get a professional to clear up all the gunk from your scalp once in a while!
