Calming an Itchy Scalp

The 5 Step Cycle to Calm Irritation.

Your scalp is your skin. Just like the skin on your face, aggressors like pollution, bacteria, excess oils, and harsh cleansers can cause irritation. That could mean an itchy scalp, oil overproduction, and ultimately blocked hair growth. Feeding and balancing your scalp’s ecosystem is paramount for healthy hair. Read on to discover the habits and ingredients that can bring your scalp back into healthy balance. 

5 step cycle to calm an itchy scalp.

Full Cycle Hair Health.

Step One. Increase Circulation

Circulating blood brings nutrients and takes away waste, increasing scalp vitality. Nothing beats a good scalp massage for increasing circulation, though buzz worthy ingredients like rosemary and green tea also stimulate the scalp. 

Step Two. Calm Inflammation.

Environmental factors are often to blame for itchy scalp, irritation, dryness and flakiness. Seek out soothing ingredients like burdock root and aloe to provide instant relief by calming inflammation, redness and itchiness. 

Step Three. Moisturize.

Hydration is key to scalp health. Dry skin kicks into overdrive, producing sebum and making hair oily at the root. The solution is often using shampoos with drying detergents, but that leads to more dryness and the cycle continues. Just as you would moisturize your face, you want to provide the skin on your scalp the same luxury. Look for nourishing ingredients like argan oil, shea, and glycerin to moisturize and help bring oil production back in balance. 

Step Four. Protect.

Antioxidants fight cellular damage and aging and are essential for both the health and youthful appearance of your skin. Ingredients like superoxide dismutase, green tea, and rosemary all pull their weight to fight against free radical damage. 

Step Five. Stimulate Hair Growth.

Hair growth is complex and requires a full metabolic process to create the keratin protein. Biotin and the silica found in horsetail herb, and essential fatty acids all support fullness and healthy growth of hair.
