I know, it may seem like a silly question, but there’s a pretty significant difference between caring for your hair and caring for your scalp. By shampooing your hair, you’re removing any oils or dirt that may be lingering from a day or two sans wash. You then continue your routine with a light conditioner and maybe a smoothing crème or leave-in conditioner. Boom! That’s all for haircare. Now, how does scalp care differ? Think of the head like a garden. Just as the earth needs healthy soil that’s nurtured through water and fertilization, the scalp should be free of product buildup and residue for healthy hair to grow. Traditional hair-care products like shampoo are designed to wash your hair, not your scalp. So, let discuss some common hair and scalp ailments and how you’d care for them accordingly.
