Which Superpower Scalp Serum Is Right for You?

Which Superpower Scalp Serum Is Right for You?

September 09, 2022

When we think about age-related beauty routines, we usually focus on skincare that addresses fine lines, wrinkles, dullness and age spots. We've all seen tons of ads for face creams and serums. But it's super important that we don't forget the aging skin on our scalps. When we neglect our scalps, they can become irritated, unbalanced and unable to support healthy hair. 

Enter scalp serums! 

Like skincare products made for aging skin, scalp serums for mature hair help fight common concerns of aging that happen to our scalp and hair. The main difference is that scalp serums also work hard to support an optimal environment for better hair. The best scalp serums rejuvenate the scalp using natural ingredients to encourage a balanced and toned scalp, nourish follicles and support healthy hair from root to tip.

How to Hydrate Your Dry Hair in the Summer Heat

How to Hydrate Your Dry Hair in the Summer Heat

June 15, 2022

The height of summer means the hottest days of the year, and depending on where you live, those days could be full of humidity or as dry as the desert. But either way, summer means more sweat, and more sweat usually means extra showers.


So whether you mean to or not, if you have a habit of washing your hair every time you shower, there’s a good chance your extra showers are actually depleting your scalp of healthy oils and leaving your hair feeling dry and brittle.


Summertime also means you’re likely to find yourself relaxing by the pool or at the beach. The sun, chlorine and saltwater you’ll undoubtedly encounter will all play a part in creating your dry summer hair. Learning to be proactive and protect your hair from dehydration isn’t so different from surviving summer when you have thinning hair. Remember that natural oils are healthy and swim caps can save you from a headache later on down the road.

Hair porosity is a hot topic right now, and for good reason! Tons of factors can affect our hair's porosity, from environmental exposure to bleaches and dyes to hair texture and genetics.

So how can you tell whether you have low, medium or high porosity hair?
