We’ve all been there: washing our hair and then suddenly coming across a tiny bump on our heads, or experiencing an itch so maddening that you can’t help but scratch it. Whatever problem it is, scalp issues can be caused by many factors including genetics, hormones, diet and even Malaysia’s humid weather. Nonetheless, there are a lot more ways to deal with these scalp issues!
These tricks are brought to you by the experts at L’Oréal Professionnel, who strive to let you have the best and most innovative scalp care for your scalp needs! So read on to find out how to treat and prevent these issues and you’ll be saying goodbye to your bad hair days soon enough!
1. Adopt a healthy diet and regular exercise routine
Hair health starts from within, so your diet is essential for strengthening your follicles and keeping your scalp healthy! Look out for foods with these nutrients that can maintain your scalp health!:
- Omega-3 fatty acid: Provides essential proteins and nutrients to your follicles and promotes circulation in your scalp.
- Foods: Salmon, mackerel, herring, eggs, flaxseeds.
- Polyphenol: Supports the capillaries of the scalp to prevent hair fall and support hair growth.
- Foods: Green tea, berries, flaxseeds, olives.
- Vitamin A: Promotes sebum oil production to moisturise your hair and scalp.
- Foods: Cheese, eggs, oily fish, low-fat spreads, milk, yoghurt.
- Folic acid: Provides oxygen to your scalp and skin, which further promotes hair growth and cell renewal.
- Foods: Asparagus, eggs, beets, citrus fruits, beef liver.
And don’t forget, regular exercise will help a lot too by stimulating blood flow in your scalp, promoting natural oil production and reducing stress which may cause hair fall. Once all that is done, use supplementary products such as the L’Oréal Professionnel Serioxyl Advanced Denser Hair serum to get more hands-on with improving your hair density! More about this below!
2. Get a scalp massage to promote blood circulation
Scalp massages are more than just a simple way to unwind; they can promote hair growth (by way of better blood circulation), reduce stress hormones, boost immunity and lessen pain and discomfort caused by scalp tension.
You can even DIY your own scalp massage! Just use your fingertips (no nails please!) to apply medium-firm pressure on your scalp in a circular motion. Do a few spins on as many areas of your scalp as possible. Do this daily for about five minutes to get the best results!
But the most preferable course of action is to let the pros handle your hair care; so you ought to hit up the hair masters at L’Oréal Professionnel! In addition to scalp massages, they also provide state-of-the-art in-salon scalp treatments, scalp diagnosis to identify your hair concerns and other services for all of your hair needs! Get your scalp treatment done in good hands at a L’Oréal Professionnel salon near you!
3. Exfoliate your scalp to get rid of dead skin, oil and dandruff
In addition to removing dry skin and unclogging pores, exfoliation helps to remove dandruff and excess oil too! Scalp exfoliation is usually done after washing and shampooing your hair. Simply go through separate parts of your scalp and rub in a hair scrub in gentle circular motions with your fingertips to remove dead skin cells from your scalp and dirt from your hair.
That being said, exfoliation should only be done twice a week at most to prevent your scalp from producing excess oil. And for the best results to beat dry and oily dandruff, you can add L’Oréal Professionnel’s Dermo Clarifier Shampoo to your regime, as they are rich with antibacterial and antifungal active ingredients.
4. Determine which scalp care products and treatments are right for you
When it comes to hair care products and treatments, there is rarely ever a “one-size fits all” item or regime that can fix everyone’s hair problems, including those involving the scalp. For this, you should consult a pharmacist or expert to find out how to tend to your scalp issues effectively. Or if you’re a bit short on time, here’s a quick guide to finding out your scalp type and what kind of products and treatments you should go for!:
1. Cleanse your hair normally without applying any products.
2. Let it air dry for two to four hours.
3. Gently dab a blotting paper or tissue on the crown of your head.
And then observe the tissue or paper used to determine your scalp type:
1. No change: You have a dry scalp prone to frizziness and roughness, thus moisturising scalp products are the thing for you.
2. Few oil traces: You have a normal scalp, which means most products should work for you.
3. Notable oil residue: You have an oily scalp prone to flatness and grease, meaning you need balancing and clarifying scalp products.
