A Healthy Scalp Equals Healthy Hair
Posted on January 04 2017
It’s no secret that healthy hair growth starts from within. Everything you do to maintain good health has a direct effect on the condition of your hair. This means eating a well-balanced diet, avoiding overly-processed, fried, and sugary foods and drinks as often as possible, and drinking plenty of water each day to keep the body hydrated.
However, we often forget that taking care of the scalp is just as important to achieve healthy hair growth. Did you know that dull, lifeless, brittle hair is often caused by an unbalanced or unhealthy scalp?
Building a strong and healthy foundation
Keep in mind this principle: Just as the condition of the soil affects how a plant grows, the condition of your scalp determines whether you have the proper foundation to grow healthy hair. It’s that simple. A healthy scalp has clean, open pores with good blood flow. An unhealthy scalp tends to be dry, itchy, flaking, or tender, and is either too dry or too oily.
So, what happens when your scalp is unbalanced? An oily scalp causes the sebaceous glands to go into overdrive, meaning the glands in the hair follicle begin to produce too much oil. This creates a haven for bacteria to breed. Dandruff, which is a characteristic of dry scalp is also caused by an overgrowth of yeast.
Product buildup is your enemy
Did you know that a dry scalp can be caused by the products you use every day to clean, condition, and style your hair? Even today’s most popular products can leave a buildup on the scalp.
That’s why it’s so important to choose hair care products that leave your hair free from product buildup and provide the right amount of moisture for your hair to prevent dryness that leads to breakage. Oleda Almond Shampoo and Thick Hair Body Builder are not only gentle to your scalp, but are also PH-balanced packed with nutrients like aloe, avocado, jojoba and wheat germ oil to give you the full-bodied, shiny, beautiful hair you’ve been dreaming of. You can also try these as part of Oleda’s Complete Hair Helpers Restoration System for a full hair-health makeover, inside and out.
Just like you would take special care of the sensitive skin on your face, it’s also important to make sure your hair products contain natural ingredients to ensure the protection of your scalp against harmful chemicals while still serving their intended purpose of beautifying your hair.
