Scalp Care Is Skin Care: The Importance of Scalp Care
The New Skincare ...
When you think of skincare, you might think of your hands, face, arms, or feet. But perhaps one of the most important parts of of your skin is right on top of your head.
Your scalp is your body's first line of defense, and provides layers of protection to some of the most important and vulnerable parts of your body.
That's why there has never been a better time to start taking care of your scalp.
In this blog we talk about the importance and benefits of natural scalp care, and the best way to care for your scalp today!
WHY THE SCALP?
The scalp provides protection to your skull. It's affected by weather, the environment, pollutants, and other bacteria the rest of our skin simply isn’t as affected by.
Although the skin on your scalp is thicker than that of your face, it isn't enough to protect it. (1)
Because your scalp has over 100,000 hair follicles to support and it needs its strength! (2)
Exposure to pollutants is scientifically proven to increase skin aging and create oxidative stress on the skin. (3)
Oxidative stress is associated with an imbalance of free radicals and the breakdown of your body's natural defense system and collagen. (4)
FUN FACT: Healthy hair is directly related to scalp care. So if you want healthy hair, you also need a healthy scalp! (5)
Our bodies also naturally lose collagen as we age, causing the breakdown of our natural elasticity and hydration. (6)
Our number of hair follicles decreases in number as we grow older. This can lead to what’s called diffuse hair loss in women and pattern baldness in men. (7)

THE SUN AND YOUR SCALP
UV damage accounts for 80% of our skin’s aging, and is also responsible for a loss of natural collagen and protection. (8)
The scalp is one of the first parts of your body to be kissed by the sun, yet it's often overlooked. Therefore, it is even more imperative you take extra care of your scalp with natural scalp treatments.
FUN FACT: Clean scalps lead to healthy cellular turnover, which allows dead and dying cells to be recycled in favor of strong and youthful cells. (9)
UV damage is cumulative, which means that the skin on the top of our head is constantly deteriorating. (10)
Additionally, since our hair follicles decrease in size due to age-related DNA damage as we grow older, your scalp needs some extra help in keeping clean and remaining nourished. (11)

EXFOLIATE EXFOLIATE EXFOLIATE
In addition to the buildup of pollutants on the surface of your head, sebum (your natural oil) can layer the top of your head with unwanted oil. (12)
It’s important to exfoliate your scalp to remove all of these impurities and dead skin cells so that you grow strong and healthy follicles. (13)
FUN FACT: As we grow older, we also are unable to produce adequate levels of melanin, which contributes to the graying of our hair and potential brittleness of the follicle. Care for your scalp and stay youthful forever! (14)
Because hair follicles are constantly getting hit by free radicals and pollutants in the air, it’s important to condition and replenish your hair with vitamins and minerals to make them stronger and more equipped to handle the day’s trouble. (15)
Taking care of your scalp will also enable you to hold your hair style longer - all the more important considering your scalp ages up to twelve times faster than the skin on your body. (16)
