How does a healthy scalp affect healthy hair growth?
Healthy hair begins with a healthy scalp. Yet, all too often, it only gets our attention after it is dry, itchy, inflamed and basically crying out for attention. While caring for our hair is of obvious importance, the truth of the matter is that the skin on our heads requires just as much care as the hair that grows through it.
Whether you sport naturally curly, kinky, wavy or processed hair, keeping your scalp clean and fresh is one of the best things you can do to keep it and your hair healthy. Just as dirt, oil and make-up left on your face for too long can lead to clogged pores and breakouts; perspiration, pollution and caked on hair products can wreak the same kind of havoc on your scalp and its hair follicles.
Because of this, it is ideal for you to wash your textured tresses at least once per week or more often if your hair tends to be oily. Washing your hair weekly not only benefits your hair, but it exfoliates and stimulates the scalp, allowing it to breathe and facilitate an environment that promotes hair growth.
