Why You Need Scalp Treatments for Healthy Hair
We all spend a lot of time and effort to be sure our hair is soft, healthy-looking, and manageable, not to mention our investment in styling and coloring to make it look great. Unfortunately, despite all that effort, many people neglect the health of the scalp. But getting regular, professional scalp treatments is important to ensure that your hair looks and feels its best.
To understand the importance of a healthy scalp, the first step is understanding how hair grows. The scalp contains hair follicles with protein cells at the bottom that form the hair root. As blood vessels send nutrients to the root, it builds more cells, then your hair grows as these cells keep making a longer strand and pushing it up out of the skin. Just before the skin’s surface is an oil gland, which helps keep those cells moist as they grow.
That’s why it’s important to keep the follicles, blood vessels, and oil glands in your scalp healthy. A scalp treatment can help by:
Exfoliating. Scalp treatments gently exfoliate the scalp, getting rid of pollutants that may be clogging the follicles and slowing down hair growth. Unclogging those follicles can even help address some issues that cause hair thinning.
Increasing blood flow. The massage action of a professional scalp treatment helps stimulate blood circulation. With more efficient blood flow, your follicles and the protein cells that make up your hair can get more nutrients.
Address dandruff issues. If your scalp tends to flake, it may be because the oil glands at the base of each hair strand are clogged, so your hair and scalp aren’t moisturized properly. A professional scalp treatment gets rid of the clog and also adds moisturizing ingredients that make your scalp healthier. With regular treatments, this can reduce or eliminate dandruff flakes.
Relaxes you. Professional scalp treatments feel great, and they help you unwind after a busy day. Stress can make us feel fatigued and can even cause pain like headaches, so a bit of relaxation is always a good thing. In fact, some people with chronic headaches schedule regular scalp treatments just because they can help reduce headache pain.
