What causes a dry scalp? How does a dry scalp affect hair health?
Dry scalp can occur for many reasons, including lack of oil production, dermatitis, or even changes in the weather. Healthy hair is coated in the lipid layer which gives the hair its suppleness and shine. Those lipids come from the natural oils produced at the scalp. Without those oils, the hair can appear to lack shine. These natural oils are nothing to fear, in fact they are what keep our hair hydrated. However, the production of these natural oils can be affected due to many factors. Hydrate Shampoo and Conditioner is the perfect solution to soothe dry scalp and to help rebuild that lipid layer on the hair.
Which ingredients in Hydrate Shampoo and Conditioner help address dry scalp and hair?
Jojoba oil is the key ingredient to helping dry scalp. Packed with Vitamin C, B and E, Jojoba oil moisturizes dry scalp without making the hair or scalp oily.
Green tea is full of potent antioxidants, vitamins and amino acids, which can help to fight drying, color fading free radicals.
Sage is a natural antimicrobial, which can help to balance scalp pH to reduce irritations and dryness.
How can you prevent dry scalp aside from using Pureology products?
Washing your hair more often with a pH balanced shampoo, like Hydrate Shampoo can help to balance your scalp and encourage a healthy environment. Brushing your hair from root to tip with a paddle brush can also help to spread oils on your scalp down through your ends, so they do not build up. Try to avoid overusing products which are applied directly to your scalp, such as dry shampoos.
