How to Prevent Hair Loss

October 21, 2020

Usually, we can expect to shed about 100 hairs each day. It’s part of the natural balance of your hair biology. Your hair follicles go through a cycle that includes growth, transition, and rest — but for many women, it may seem like their follicles are spending too much time resting. When your growth cycle is interrupted, and more hair falls out then grows in, hair loss occurs.

Protecting Your Scalp from Damaging UV Rays

Protecting Your Scalp from Damaging UV Rays

September 28, 2020

Our scalp is covered by hair. As we age, however, our tresses thin, exposing more skin to damaging ultraviolet (UV) rays.

How Do I Choose A Hair Serum?

September 23, 2020

As the years go by, the volume and shine associated with young-looking hair may be replaced by brittle, fine, and dull hair normally linked to aging. This transformation is a result of environmental and genetic influences that affect your hair shaft and follicle cells.

The more products we use, the more residue is left behind on our scalps. Product buildup can interfere with the natural pH of your scalp, making it impossible to sprout glossy, hydrated locks.

How Do You Exfoliate Your Scalp?

September 05, 2020

Many women feel reborn in their 40s and beyond, and exfoliation can bolster that renewed energy feeling. After all, through exfoliation, we literally buff away dead skin cells while making room for new ones to shine. This renewal-through-scrubbing has become a perpetual component of our face and body’s daily or weekly skincare regimen. Nevertheless, many of us forget that the scalp that anchors our hair is made of skin, too.

How Do You Get Rid of Scalp Buildup?

July 22, 2020

Maybe you have practiced social distancing for too long and are skipping regular shampoos — or you have been experimenting with bolder styling products trying new looks before a return to society. Changes to your routine can lead to flakes and an itchy head from sticky scalp buildup. Over time dry shampoos, hairsprays, mousses, gels, oils, sweat, and dead skin cause residue accumulation clogging pores and blocking new follicle development. When this happens, your hair thins and can grow at a snail’s pace.
