A healthy scalp is your gateway to luscious and healthy hair.

The skin on our scalp is very sensitive and contains multiple nerve endings. It’s often neglected, but it needs to be taken care of just as much as the rest of your skin. Not only does a healthy scalp help with good hair, but a healthy scalp can also keep you feeling energized.

A damaged scalp results in itchy and flaky skin that we often refer to as dandruff. What most people don’t know is that dandruff is the first step to chronic hair fall.

About 40% of women begin to lose their hair before they even enter their forties. Hair loss is rampant, and in recent years, the situation has worsened.

Here are a few tips to keep your scalp healthy:

Use Gentle Shampoos

A common misconception is that shampooing your hair too often will make it healthier. Not only does this not work, but it affects the natural oils on your scalp and can cause dandruff or an oily buildup.

Shampoos strip the natural sebum, which coats, moisturizes, and protects hair. Harsh shampoos are mostly loaded with unhealthy chemicals such as parabens, sulfates, silicones, and fragrance, that build up on the scalp and compromise its resilience of the scalp by making it more susceptible to fungus and dryness.

Besides reducing the number of times you shampoo, use gentle shampoos upon the recommendations of your hair experts. Drop by our salon in Texas for advice.

Avoid Hot Tools

This is perhaps the greatest but most effective tip for a healthy scalp.

Most styling tools release heat to maneuver the bonds within the hair and adjust them to a certain style. Heat tools release thermal energy result in a phenomenon called ’bubble hair’ in which gaps occur in the shafts of the strands.

While you can’t observe this with the naked eye, these strands pull at the scalp and weaken the hair follicle.

If you absolutely must use these tools, avoid getting them close to the scalp and roots to prevent damage.

We suggest getting natural-looking non damaging hair extensions if you require looking put-together at all times.

Get Low-Level Light Therapy (LLLT)

Whether your scalp is already damaged or you’re looking to preserve its natural health, an LLLLT can help deal with the damage.

It makes use of a non-thermal laser that relaxes the scalp, enabling it to breathe again. It boosts the growth of hair cells and energizes the already existing strands so that your hair looks healthier instantly.

Even after the treatment, growth keeps occurring, resulting in better hair over the next few months.

At Hair Extensions of Houston, we determine how many sessions you need after a comprehensive assessment of your hair. The treatment requires 30-minute sessions twice a week and boosts growth by 35%.

We offer premium salon services at Hair Extensions of Houston to give you the best LLLT treatments and high-quality premium Russian hair extensions in Texas.
