Basic Scalp Care

Basic Scalp Care:    This us usually taken care of as part of our Basic Hair Care daily routine. It sounds simple! Yet day after day, we rediscover that our hair clients just don't know or use their basic routine to solves their scalp &  hair problems. With scalp problems it takes a little more know how than with hair problems. Some scalp problems, like those resulting in Hair Loss, become hair problems. What is scarce, is passing on the basic hair care procedures that solve most scalp problems we see in the hair salon.


If you have not had a scalp problem you are most likely doing your scalp maintenance automatically as part of your Basic Hair Care without realizing  you are doing both scalp & hair maintenance at the same time. In this situation the conditioner you are using on your hair you are also using on your scalp. If you start a scalp therapy program you may need to use one conditioner for your hair, and intentionally NOT apply it on your scalp, so it does not interfere with the scalp treatment you are going to apply after you get out of the shower.

Review the basic - Do's and Don'ts:

Do -use a conditioner ( it puts back the "things you want" & gets rid of  all the shampoo)

Do -use a pick or comb on wet hair

Don't -brush wet hair (if you do you will be "brushing in" damage and split ends!)

Don't -scratch your scalp (with you nails, or your brushes or your combs, or anything else)

Do - use the cushion tips of your fingers when shampooing or to "rub and itchy spot"

Do -shampoo & condition every day

Don't -rub your hair to death when drying it

Do -blot you hair to remove unwanted water

Do -protect you hair with a detangler or spray on - leave in silk based spray on conditioner

Do -use tepid (not hot and not cold) water when shampooing

Do -measure the water temperature on the inside of your forearm

Don't -scald you scalp with hot water - you scalp has few pain receptors - it can't tell "hot"
           (if you have to have a hot shower turn down the "heat" when you shampoo you hair)

Do -switch to salon quality shampoo and conditioners - to help solve specific problems
