Winter is coming (not referring to GoT here!). Is your hair ready? Are you maintaining a healthy hair care routine? Yes? Wow, that’s great! But what about the much-needed care for your scalp? Oh, all this while you thought that good hair care = good scalp care? Well, that’s not how it goes for real, my friends.
The human scalp has entirely different anatomy and thus, cannot be taken care of in the same manner as that of your hair or your skin. Though by routine care it is perhaps provided for along with hair, the skin type of our scalp is sensitive and requires regular focussed care to remain healthy.
Just like the sensitive skin on your face, your scalp too accumulates dirt, sweat, oil and bacteria, especially if you are someone who heads out daily. Following a regular scalp care routine helps in keeping your scalp clean and away from these unhealthy elements. An unhygienic scalp can lead to multiple problems that result in hair fall and eventually a more serious hair loss situation.
Winter months creates a lot of stress on your hair and scalp, apart from the daily concerns of dirt & grime. While for some dry scalp is a chronic concern, for most winter is a dreaded period ‘cos the moisture is zapped out of your hair and scalp in this period. It either brings about dry scalp or worsens the scalp condition for those who are already having concerns..
Understand your scalp better…
Wiki defines scalp as ‘the anatomical area bordered by the human face at the front, and by the neck at the sides and back.’
Very simply put, scalp is to your hair, what soil is to a plant. It’s the ground on which your hair grows! Just as your body-skin, it’s made up of layers of tissues. The bottom-most being the newest and the outermost being the oldest skin ready to shed, giving way to the new layer. It hosts the hair Sebaceous glands and hair follicles are found on the scalp – the glands maintain the essential oils on your scalp, and the follicles are the roots from which your hair strands grow.
The level of moisture and oils, the pH balance, cleanliness, blood circulation and the protection provided by you, define your scalp condition. Any imbalance in any of these elements will lead to concerns of your scalp, that will need a routine-scalp-care or professional attention, if severe.
Your hair growth has much to do with your scalp condition. After all, as mentioned above, the scalp is the foundation for your hair!
How do you know if your scalp needs more attention than you are giving it now? Here are the two most common tell-tale signs signalling for better scalp care:
This by itself is a deep topic which we will not dive into at this point. Do read our blogs on these various topics for in-depth discussion on each.
