Dry scalp

It's that time of year again. Cold weather equals dry skin all over the body including the scalp. This occurs when your skin looses too much moisture. In the winter the humidity in the air drops and there is less moisture. Also with the heat blasting and hot showers our skin is extra dry. It's time for a detox! Read on to get tips on how to go from flaky, dry and dull to a healthy scalp and luscious locks.


Amika Reset Pink Charcoal Scalp Cleansing Oil

Tip #1 - Scalp Detox

Reset your scalp with Amika Reset Pink Charcoal Scalp Cleansing Oil. A pre-shampoo scalp treatment that detoxifies and invigorates to encourage a balanced, healthy scalp. It draws out impurities and removes product build-up, without stripping away skin's essential oils. This treatment can be done once a week. I recommend going longer between treatments for colored hair that tends to faded quick like reds and vivids. Do every other week or once a month to avoid extra fading.


Amika Reset Exfoliating Jelly Shampoo

Tip #2 - Exfoliate

Exfoliating regularly is necessary to keep the scalp and hair follicles clean in order for hair to grow. A hair follicle that is blocked not only effects the growth of the hair, but also might result in the hair not growing in at all. Luscious locks come for a healthy scalp. After using the cleansing oil you want to exfoliate with Amika Reset Exfoliating Jelly Shampoo. It re-balances and soothes sensitive, itchy, and oily scalps.


Tip #3 - Condition Your Scalp

I don't recommend conditioning your scalp all the time because it can make your hair more oily and weight your hair down, especially if you have fine hair. However when your scalp is dry it can benefit from the hydration. Try massaging your conditioner on your scalp when conditioning.


Tip #4 - Don't Over Wash Your Hair

Over washing strips away the natural oils and proteins, which keeps your scalp healthy and provides healthy hair growth. Wash your hair 2 to 3 times a week instead of everyday.


Tip #5 - Drink Water

Keeping your body hydrated is beneficial for both your hair and skin.
