There is a link between scalp health and the quality of your hair. This is why hair growth-stimulating products often also address scalp problems. After all, a healthy scalp means healthy hair. This is why we think it is important to offer products and treatments that keep the scalp healthy.
Our skin is also known as our largest organ. It protects us in all kinds of weather and therefore has a lot to endure. From drying cold in winter to the bright sun in summer. The skin consists of three layers. The epidermis, the dermis and the subcutaneous connective tissue. The hair follicles are located in the middle layer: the dermis. This is also where sweat glands, sebaceous glands, blood vessels and nerve endings are located. Not surprisingly, maintaining healthy skin, is important for hair growth. There are several ways in which skin health affects hair growth.
The health of your hair follicles is directly affected by the state of the underlying skin. The blood vessels in the skin supply important nutrients and oxygen to the hair follicles, which are necessary for their proper functioning. When the skin is healthy, it can deliver these nutrients efficiently, which promotes hair growth.
Sebum is a natural oil produced by the sebaceous glands in the skin. It helps moisturise and nourish both skin and hair. When skin is healthy, sebum production is well regulated. This provides a healthy foundation for hair growth.
The state of your scalp has a direct impact on hair growth. If the scalp is dry, flaky or irritated, it can disrupt the hair growth cycle and lead to hair loss or slower hair growth. If you keep your scalp healthy through proper skin care, you will create an optimal environment for hair follicles to thrive.
Chronic inflammation in the skin, as in conditions such as dandruff or psoriasis, can negatively affect hair growth. Inflammatory reactions can damage hair follicles and disrupt their normal function. By keeping your skin healthy, you can minimise inflammation and create an environment that supports healthy hair growth.
Keeping the skin around hair follicles healthy is essential for their proper functioning. Unhealthy skin can lead to clogged hair follicles, which can hinder hair growth and lead to problems such as thinning hair or hair loss.
These treatments can be used briefly to address serious problems, or as part of your regular hair routine. Read on to be informed in detail about different scalp problems and the treatments we recommend.
Dandruff is not considered a medical problem, but that doesn't make it any less annoying. Also, dandruff is a mild version of what is called seborrheic dermatitis. So you would be wise to tackle mild dandruff as well.
For dandruff and flakes, we recommend the Neofollics Scalp Therapy pack. This consists of three products: an exfoliating shampoo, a nourishing mask and a peeling serum.
Neofollics Scalp Therapy is also suitable for eczema, itching, flaking and an irritated scalp.
Itching can have several causes. Changed conditions such as age or stress can be factors causing itching. The skin's natural moisture balance is then disrupted and dries out the skin. This can cause itching and irritation.
If itching is accompanied by other symptoms such as flaking or eczema, this is the most obvious explanation for the itching. We recommend two different treatments for itching.
If you suffer from dry scalp, it is important to use a shampoo specifically designed for this problem. It is best to choose a gentle shampoo without sulphates, as these will prevent your scalp from drying out. These shampoos will help you moisturise your scalp. In addition to a shampoo, it is also wise to use a conditioner.
We recommend two different treatments for dry scalp. Neofollics Scalp Therapy pack or Mediceuticals Treatment kit (dry scalp) both offer relief for dry scalp, which is often accompanied by itching and irritation.
We recommend two different treatments.
Oily scalp occurs when your sebaceous glands produce too much sebum. This can get into your hair, making it greasy. This can have various causes from hereditary predisposition to using the wrong shampoo. In any case, we recommend Mediceuticals Treatment kit (oily scalp).
