To achieve healthier, stronger, and thicker hair, you need a thriving scalp. Oil, dirt, sweat, and bulky hair products can leave residue behind that builds up on your scalp. This buildup causes dryness, itching, flakes, and ultimately leads to thinner and weaker hair.

Aging is a daily opportunity to look better. Using the best scalp cleanser formulated for your hair biology can relieve your itchy scalp, banish, the flakes, and leave you with lush hair and a moisture-rich scalp.

What Is a Scalp Cleanser?

Scalp cleansers are solutions that exfoliate, clean and stimulate delicate scalp skin. Compared to shampoos, used daily to clean your strands, these deep-cleaning agents are used less frequently and target your scalp and follicles. Depending on your scalp condition, cleansers may be used twice a week or as little as once every other week.

Sebaceous glands on your scalp operate in the same way as the glands on your face; they produce a mixture of lipids called sebum that supports skin and hair health. If too much oil or hair product builds up on your scalp, it can interfere with follicle function. Often shampoos may not be enough to cleanse away this residue thoroughly. Scalp cleansers work by dissolving, scrubbing away, or absorbing oil and hair product buildup.

  • Dissolving — ingredients with a low pH like alicyclic acid, apple cider vinegar, or lemon juice can break down scalp buildup and smooth the cuticle.
  • Scrubbing — these products focus on exfoliation through friction, usually with course ingredients like sea salt.
  • Absorbing — activated charcoal like that found in New Dawn Activated Charcoal Scalp Cleanser detoxes your scalp by drawing out and washing away impurities. Since scalp skin tends to get itchy and irritated if not cleaned correctly, New Dawn also soothes your scalp while removing buildup.

Vibrant Hair Requires a Healthy Scalp

Most of us recognize that our hair protects our scalp; however, the reverse is also true. The scalp plays a vital role in cultivating hair before it emerges. Circulation of blood through a healthy scalp brings critical nutrients to your follicles where your hair develops. A shortage of these nutrients will result in compromised hair structure.

Conditions like oxidative stress that impact your scalp also cause damage to your strands inside your follicles. Oxidative stress is involved in many skin conditions, including aging, and also plays a role in hair loss.

Your scalp is unique because it contains numerous sebum-making sebaceous glands, sweat glands, and hair follicles, giving it a lower barrier function than other skin. In other words, moisture has an easier time exiting your skin, while microbes have an easier time getting in.

You cannot just treat your fragile scalp like the rest of your skin — it requires special attention to ensure robust hair growth and quality. Eating a healthy diet and regularly using a high-quality scalp cleanser will give you silky, hydrated strands.

The Best Scalp Cleanser Cleans and Exfoliates

New Dawn Activated Charcoal Scalp Cleanser primes and exfoliates your scalp, providing targeted cleaning that engenders faster growth by:

  • Removing product buildup
  • Unblocking hair follicles
  • Increasing circulation
  • Promoting hair growth

This multifaceted scalp cleanser provides scalp stimulation and deep cleansing for all hair types, unclogging your pores and ridding your scalp of gunky buildup for dynamic hair growth. It is the only cleanser of its kind to use activated charcoal and wholesome exfoliating ingredients including:

  • Lactic Acid — Lactic acid is a type of alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) used to delicately exfoliate dead skin cells from your scalp and break down the buildup that is blocking your pores.
  • Activated Charcoal — Well known as a highly absorbent material, activated charcoal particles have a large surface area to gather dirt and e oils from your scalp pores.
  • Menthyl Lactate — Menthyl lactate is a derivative of menthol that acts as a cooling agent when applied to the skin. After use, even the most inflamed scalp will feel soothed, stimulated, and refreshed.
  • Birch Extract — Vitamin-rich birch bark extract has healing properties when applied to the skin, and is an effective non-drying astringent and clarifying cleanser.
  • Argan Oil — Nourishing vitamins and argan oil provide deep nourishment and care of your scalp and roots. Argan contains anti-inflammatories, antioxidants, omega-6, and vitamin E, vital for healthy skin and hair.
  • Tocopherol Acetate (Vitamin E) — Tocopherol acetate is an antioxidant and natural skin conditioner sourced from sunflower seeds.

How to Use New Dawn Activated Charcoal Scalp Cleanser

Apply New Dawn Activated Charcoal Scalp Cleanser directly to your scalp using the built-in applicator. The applicator utilizes the massaging ability of silicone bristles to cleanse your scalp and thoroughly stimulate your follicles.

  1. Start by dispensing a small amount of cleanser onto the applicator brush.
  2. Next, wet your hair and massage New Dawn onto your scalp, focusing on one small area at a time.
  3. Use the applicator brush to continue spreading the product as you exfoliate each section.
  4. Once you completely cover your scalp, use your fingertips to ensure even distribution over your entire scalp.
  5. Rinse well and follow-up with Wake Up Call Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner, or Second Chance Repairing Shampoo and Conditioner for Dry/Damaged Hair.

New Dawn removes product buildup and dead skin cells while vitalizing scalp blood flow to make your hair feel fresh and clean.

In our quest for shiny, beautiful hair, we put our aging hair and scalps through a lot — we switch from sticky gels to mousses, to sprays, trying to infuse life into our dull, frizzy locks. 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. Cleaning the gunk and toxin buildup from your scalp unclogs your hair follicles, balancing your natural sebum oils and scalp pH.
