Do you feel discomfort and itching on your scalp but don't know how to remedy it? Don't panic, Artisan Brossier has the solution.
Just like the hair, your scalp can also be subject to binding hair problems: risk of irritation, itching, strong presence of dandruff or scabs... which can be caused by various factors , such as stress, pollution or simply poor hygiene.
This sensitivity causes intense and daily discomfort, which can considerably alter your state of health and make maintaining your hair a real ordeal. In order to help you overcome this problem naturally, we have developed a tailor-made routine.
1. Choose the right accessories
Choose accessories that respect your skin and brush your hair with a brush with soft bristles, such as an agave fiber brush . This fiber is completely natural and much softer and more supple than boar hair: it effectively and gently detangles your hair, thus limiting the risk of irritation and unpleasant sensations felt on the scalp.
If you prefer combs , choose wooden ones. Like agave fiber, it is a natural material that does not attack your skin unlike plastic combs which can have sharp teeth and cut into your skull.
Brushing your hair regularly eliminates the residues it has accumulated throughout the day and helps distribute sebum evenly over the entire length. It is important to adopt this gesture to help your scalp clean up naturally, especially since the feelings of discomfort can be due to an accumulation of sebum at the level of the roots.
2. Do a purifying massage
Get into the habit of massaging your scalp regularly, preferably with vegetable oils or aloe vera gel, to stimulate blood circulation, relieve tension that causes discomfort, and naturally soothe your sensitivity over washes. . Be sure to use oils that match your needs. For example, warm oils such as cinnamon, orange or lavender stimulate the scalp, while cold oils soothe it, such as mint or eucalyptus. Aloe vera gel remains the ideal alternative, since it is suitable for all hair types and is renowned for its moisturizing and purifying properties.
Once the brushing step is done, apply a few drops of vegetable oil or gel directly to your scalp and start a rotating massage with your fingertips. If you want a stimulating massage, start from the neck and gradually go up to the top of the skull and vice versa for a soothing massage. Pay attention to the movement of the scalp, you must feel the skin of the skull move under the passage of the fingers to have an optimal result.
It is preferable to carry out this type of massage before each shampoo, in order to evacuate the oily residues of your skull and thus avoid suffocating your scalp.
3. Space out the shampoos
Excessive hair washing is beneficial neither to the hair fiber nor to the scalp. Indeed, a high frequency of washing tends to over-stimulate it: the production of sebum is then unbalanced, which can lead to drying of the skin or, on the contrary, a significant greasing of the hair and ultimately cause irritation. In addition, the composition of the shampoo is generally too aggressive. It can cause severe itching and increase the sensitivity of the scalp.
It is therefore preferable to opt for a frequency of two to three washes per week and to use a mild shampoo or one specially designed for sensitive scalps, in order to cleanse without attacking the cranial epidermis.
For a more complete treatment, we invite you to rinse your hair, and your skull, with a mixture of water and cider vinegar. You just need to mix 1 glass of vinegar with 3 glasses of water to obtain a natural recipe, which cleanses the scalp and calms irritations. Apply this mixture once a week, leave it on for a few minutes and rinse thoroughly with clean water.
4. Have a healthy and balanced lifestyle
Your lifestyle greatly influences the health of your hair, and also that of the scalp. It is therefore important to take care of yourself to prevent and avoid any hair imbalance.
Have a balanced diet. Your hair needs nutrients to naturally strengthen, hydrate and clean up. Note that dietary deficiencies have adverse effects on their state of health, and can be the cause of major hair problems. It is therefore important to eat well.
Stay hydrated and practice a regular sports activity, which relaxes you. In addition to being beneficial to your body and your mind, playing sports helps you manage your stress, the main factor at the origin of hair imbalances. Ride a bike, go for a run or relax with the benefits of yoga.
Finally, adopt good habits: protect your hair from the sun , avoid pulling it too much when you tie it up and limit prolonged contact with a heat source (hair dryer, brushing, straightening iron, etc.).
You have all the keys in hand to help your scalp calm down naturally. If the problems persist, do not hesitate to consult a professional.
