The Secret to a Healthy Scalp

Healthy hair begins with a healthy scalp. It is important to give your scalp just as much love as you give the skin on the rest of your body. Remember, the scalp is where hair follicles live and where hair growth begins. Think of it like any other ecosystem, the first step to strong growth is a healthy environment! Although taking care of your scalp can be time consuming, you’ll notice shinier, healthier, and faster hair growth when doing so. 

What does a healthy scalp look like?


A healthy scalp will appear clean and is free of flakes, dandruff, irritation, redness, and dryness. If you are experiencing itchiness or irritation, these might be signs of an unhealthy scalp. 


A good place to start if you’re struggling with an unhealthy scalp, is to look at what shampoo you’re using. Look for a shampoo with natural ingredients, and be aware of the types of sulfates that are in your shampoos.


Evolve is a shampoo treatment that tackles hair health at the root (pun intended). Evolve not only repairs hair from heat and color damage, but it also optimizes the scalp for maximum growth. It is a great place to start your scalp health journey!


How can I achieve a healthy scalp?


If you are experiencing dandruff, it is often the sign of too much oil build up. Dandruff can be yellow or white flakes that appear on the scalp and usually fall out of the hair. It’s usually more embarrassing than anything, but don’t fret, it’s easily fixable. Along with a gentle shampoo, try using a scalp massager to exfoliate and loosen dandruff while in the shower.
