Considering it’s one of the first things people notice about you, hair is key to your appearance. The way you look can affect your attitude and confidence, and when you have an irritating dry scalp, your appearance potentially becomes insecurity. Not only is dry scalp uncomfortable and hard to deal with, but a nourished scalp is essential for healthy hair and growth. Dry scalp leads to inflammation, which causes men and women deal with itchy and dry scalps, and in most cases, hair loss. We wanted to breakdown the problems with dry scalp and help you understand why Zenagen is your solution.
UNDERSTANDING DRY SCALP
Here at Zenagen, we believe a better understanding of the issue prepares you for the most effective treatment. Before we jump into the ways of treating dry scalp, let’s do a quick review of what causes it and why.
What Causes Dry Scalp
For the most part, dry scalp is caused by hereditary and genetic reasons, but weather, stress, age and hormones are other leading causes, as well. Many people will have higher risks of the dry scalp during the winter months because of the dry air. Unfortunately, these are all things that are out of your control; however, other causes are much easier to maintain. Using hair care products that contain harmful ingredients and chemicals will lead to Contact Dermatitis. Contact Dermatitis is not as terrifying as it sounds, but should definitely be on your radar. Dry scalp can also root from not rinsing your shampoo properly or using too much shampoo. Lack of natural oils, hydration, and massaging are other causes that all have secure solutions.
Different types of Dry Scalp
Eczema, psoriasis, cradle cap and dandruff are some of the leading sources of dry scalp. Eczema is a chronic dry skin condition associated with an overactive response to the immune system. Similarly, psoriasis is a chronic skin disorder that causes an abnormal process where new skin cells produce much quicker, leaving dead skin cells to shed. Cradle cap and dandruff do not have pinpointed causes. They are the results of the overproduction of sebum and build-up of dry flakes on the scalp.
TREATING DRY SCALP
First things first, if you’re using a shampoo with harmful chemicals, it’s time for you to switch shampoos. Zenagen is a naturally formulated shampoo and conditioner with ingredients like aloe, saw palmetto, brahmi, and red clover. All elements designed to treat hair loss by reducing and controlling scalp inflammation. It is crucial to wash consistently and hydrate the scalp with every use. Reducing sun exposure is another way to eliminate dry scalp and Zenagen packs in UVA and UVB protectors. Hair experts would also highly recommend that you massage the scalp when washing your hair. You can make scalp massage therapy easier by using a Zenagen Scalp Massager. The scalp massager will dilate the tiny arteries in the scalp and increase blood flow to the hair follicle. Our scalp massagers are available only in our limited time cosmetic bag sets, which will be available in salons next month! We’re not saying Zenagen is the only solution, but it’s by far the best for dry scalp.
