You may have experienced scalp problems such as flaky, dry, oily, smelly scalp or hair loss. Shampooing the proper way is essential to having a healthy scalp. Not only is diet extremely important, it is also the way we physically take care of our hair. There are many sebaceous glands which produce oil in the scalp. The scalp tends to clog easily and cause irritation, itchiness, hair loss, and odor due to the overproduction of bacteria.
- Brush the hair to help remove and loosen some of the build up on the scalp. It also will help stimulate the blood flow in the scalp and nourish the follicles.
- Rinse well with warm water (approximately 100 degrees F). Please do not use overly hot water as it can result in a dry scalp. Rinsing extremely well prior to shampooing can remove more than half of the debris and build up on the scalp and hair.
- Applying the concentrated shampoo directly on the scalp can cause irritation, so massage and lather it in your hands prior to putting it on your scalp.
- Shampoo the scalp with your finger tips, avoid using your nails. Massage the scalp to stimulate blood flow and prevent hair loss.
- Take your time with the rinse process. Allow for 3-5 minutes to rinse thoroughly. A lot of scalp problems begin with the leftover product residue from not rinsing well enough.
