Most people have had or will experience some degree of dandruff during their life. Your skin is shed and replaced constantly including the skin on your scalp, this becomes more noticeable when there is an imbalance of bacteria on the scalp or you aren’t washing your hair frequently enough. I recommend using a targeted anti-microbial shampoo and scalp toner, such as Philip Kingsley’s Flaky Itchy Shampoo (£24 for 250ml) and Flaky Itchy Scalp Toner (£21 for 250ml) to help return skin cell turnover to normal.
As you can’t see your scalp, its health is often neglected, but it has a huge influence on the look and feel of your hair. If you shampoo infrequently your scalp is likely to become irritated and you’re also more likely to get blocked pores and pimples.
Your scalp is exposed to the elements just as much as your skin is. Environmental pollutants and damaging free radicals such as wind, rain and UV rays can be bad for your scalp health. Just as a good skin care regime can do wonders for the skin on your face, taking care of your hair and scalp benefits them immensely. Looking after your scalp will improve your hair’s strength, elasticity, and manageability, reduce breakage and brittleness and also encourage hair growth.
For use on all hair types, this mild but highly effective shampoo will leave hair shiny and manageable.
