Scalp Treatments, What is the difference?  When it comes to proper hair care, a weekly deep cleansing routine is a very good habit. Dry shampoos, conditioners, hair serums and a multitude of styling products can cause a build up of residue at the hair root. A thoughtful hair care routine is the best way to maintain a healthy head of hair growth. If you invest in a few quality pre-shampoo cleanses throughout the month, the hair follicles at the base of your hair strands collect less residue over time and support stronger lengths. Just like the pores on your face, hair follicles at the root often collect whatever your daily cleanse and style leaves behind.  Different from a regular shampoo, scalp treatments are often sold in the form of a scrub or mask. Like a facial exfoliant, a pre-shampoo scalp treatment will unclog the hair follicles so as to clear any oils or residue from hair products. When your scalp is clean, your hair should grow and look most healthy. Often, the hair is washed without regard to scrubbing the scalp. While most of your hair follicles support clean hair strands, the root of the hair at the scalp most likely holds microscopic debris. If you'll focus your attention on scrubbing your scalp with a pre-shampoo scalp exfoliant, your head will benefit from a deep clean to unclog those hair follicles. A deep cleaning scalp treatment will help stimulate blood flow and support optimum hair health.  Milbon Scalp For scalps with itchiness, dandruff, dryness, oiliness or odor, we recommend Milbon Scalp. To help get down into the first layers of hair follicles on your head, you'll softly rub the product into your scalp in a circular motion. This line offers a Purifying Gel Shampoo, Hydrating Treatment and Soothing Scalp Moisturizer. The entire line of Milbon products focuses on the science behind a healthy scalp. The best thing about this collection is that it deposits healthy oils and essential moisturizing nutrients to your scalp after scrubbing your deepest roots clean. Kerastase Scrub  Again, scalp treatments unclog the hair follicles, differentiating these products from a daily shampoo. Pre-shampoo cleanses in the Keretese hair scrub line of best-selling scrubs are scalp-specific. While they provide a large array of hair conditioning cleaning treatments, the products that have been created to get rid of excess sebum and dead skin cells are available in the list of hair scrub products. To help support hair health, we recommend trying out a set that is grouped together so that you can choose the right system for your oily or sensitive scalp. This line is unique in that it combines ingredients to treat dull, lifeless hair.  Whichever product that you choose, remember that a deep cleaning scrub is best when practiced once a week. Regular shampoo has sulfates that create soap suds so as to deliver fragrance and condition the length of your hair. The biggest difference in a scrub is that it is slightly gritty and it treats the scalp.   For a professional treatment, book an appointment at one of our salons.
