Summer is officially here. And while that is good news, a change of season can sometimes bring out the worst in our scalps. Oiliness. Itchiness. Maybe both in different parts of your hair. Or maybe you’ve been so busy that you’re not even sure how your scalp is doing. Not sure where to start? Don’t worry. We’re using the official start of summer as a reminder to refresh your scalp and sharing our favorite scalp-saving tips with you.
Before you go crazy with treatments, take a moment to check in with your scalp. Give your scalp a good scratch, making sure to give your whole scalp love. Take note of any dry patches, bumps, oily areas, and anything else out of the ordinary. Then use your observations to take action.
Treat yourself to a (scalp) massage
Scalp massage works wonders for dry scalp. We recommend massaging our hair and scalp growth elixir into your hair at least four times a week. Not only will this help with any dry scalp issues, you’ll also be supporting the growth of your hair!
If you noticed a lot of oil during your scalp check in, you might be overwashing your hair. Shampooing too often can lead to increased oil production. Experiment with pushing back your wash day until you find an interval that works for you. When you do wash your, try our CROWNED™ Moisturizing Shampoo for an added boost for your scalp.
Rinse it out
Add an apple cider vinegar rinse to your routine if you have dry scalp, or if you notice that you have a lot of product buildup. Simply wet your hair, mix two parts apple cider vinegar and two parts water, and massage the concoction into your scalp. Let it sit for about five minutes before rinsing it out. Your scalp will thank you! Follow up with our a deep condition using our CROWNED Protein Masque.
Take your vitamins
Believe it or not, what goes into your body affects your scalp. Eat your fill of summer produce, and have as colorful a plate as possible. To turbocharge your vitamin intake, we recommend our Whole Food Vitamin. The mix of all-natural ingredients benefits your hair, skin, nails, and your scalp, too.
