The Root of all Problems: Scalp Health & Why It’s Important

Because a healthy scalp is the secret to healthy and gorgeous hair.

Head Spa is quickly becoming a staple service at many high-end salons. Why? Because the treatment promotes a clean scalp free of buildup by combining scalp cleansing, a relaxing head massage as well as deep conditioning. At Fabio Scalia, we offer this luxurious treatment using Milbon’s Scalp Collection and this week we are very excited to tell you all about it.

Milbon has been at the forefront of hair care innovation for years. And when it was time to develop a scalp line they conducted in-depth research that showed that indeed the scalp is the root of all common hair problems. But research also showed that a high percentage of women do nothing to address scalp problems. Thus, neglecting to take care of the scalp properly exacerbates common hair problems such as itchiness, dryness, oiliness, odor, and dandruff. The magic behind Milbon lies in the science of it. Research showed that a high ratio of fatty acids in the scalp sebum is an indicator of an unbalanced scalp. Excess fatty acids in sebum result in scalp that is smelly, sticky and itchy. Furthermore, fatty acids in sebum deter skin cell renewal and result in flaking and dryness.  

Sounds familiar? No need to panic! A good head spa treatment will start off by removing the unwanted fatty acids clogging the follicles. For this detoxifying step, we use a purifying gel shampoo, formulated to attach to the fatty acid build up and lift it away from the scalp and hair. The shampoo is followed by a cleansing spa gel, infused with cooling menthol and aromatherapy scents, specially designed to provide deep cleaning and exfoliating of the scalp. By incorporating a deep head massage, the treatment will leave you feeling refreshed (and very relaxed!). Once the buildup has been lifted, the last steps focus on replenishing essential moisture and oil to the scalp. Milbon’s powerful hydrating treatment and leave-in scalp moisturizer serve to soothe, nourish, moisturize and protect the scalp.

This head spa treatment offer clients the benefits of detoxifying the scalp, which in turn restores the natural volume and shine of the hair. In addition, the SSVR-Silk™ infused treatment alleviates common hair issues and the soothing head massage leaves your body and mind feeling relaxed and stimulated.
