scalp 101.

the scalp is part of the same ecosystem as your face. there are oil glands, as well as sweat glands, in fact it’s actually composed of more sweat/oil glands than anywhere else on your body which means it produces more sebum + oil than skin elsewhere.

what causes imbalances?

+ dead skin cells.
+ sweat.
+ hair products.
+ seasonal changes/traveling.
+ pollution.

is shampooing enough?

use a shampoo that works best for your hair type. regular washing can help prevent build up from accumulating. the skin on your scalp is subject to the same environmental aggressors as the skin on the rest of your body – a skincare meets scalp care regime makes sense.

but I heard over-washing + shampooing is bad for your hair?

blow drying, using a flat iron, coloring, bleaching, even over-brushing can damage the outer layer (cuticle) of your hair. when the inner core of hair is exposed, your locks become dry + dull. it depends on your hair type or if color-treated.

exfoliation matters.

exfoliating regularly provides a deeper cleanse to help maintain balance, keeping scalp + hair nourished + healthy.
