Your scalp truly is the foundation of having healthy hair. However, it’s extremely common for the scalp to be overlooked when it comes to our beauty care routine. There are three very important reasons why it’s important to look after your scalp, that will ensure your hair care routine is straightforward and effective, while also being comprehensive and complete.
An unhealthy scalp can often lead to hair loss or thinning as hair isn’t able to grow through the follicles, or breaks off during the early growth phase. Kyn’s Hemp Oil is a perfect product to remedy this - it contains essentials such as Omega-3, Omega-6 and Omega-9 fatty acids. By applying a few drops to the scalp and massaging it in as an overnight treatment, hair growth is stimulated and hair is strengthened to prevent breakage.
To protect hair and encourage hair growth, Kyn’s Thickening Cream is ideal as it is an adaptable formula that can be used on dry or damp hair. The key ingredient is Hydrolyzed Linseed Extract as this is rich in both Vitamin E and Omega-3 fatty acids, with anti-inflammatory properties that promote scalp health and hair growth.
Build up of products
A build up of products can often create blockages around the hair follicles. The overuse of products such as dry shampoo, gels, sprays and oils can contribute to this. If you picture this like a blocked pore on your skin, you know this isn’t an ideal environment for hair to flourish and grow as it leads to a deregulation of oil production on the scalp, meaning your scalp is either producing too much, or too little oil, hampering hair health, or results in an itchy and flaky scalp.
The best way to combat product build-up, and its effects, is through the use of a scalp scrub and cleanser like Kyn’s Scalp Scrub that will detoxify, exfoliate, moisturise and balance the scalp. This can be used multiple times a week to give your hair a deep cleanse and counteract the effect of products.
Damage from the sun can affect our scalps too, resulting in dry and red skin that will age the scalp prematurely. One of the most effective ways to treat a sunburnt scalp is to be diligent about moisturising. It is key in this instance to be looking out for ingredients that will be able to treat the issue directly.
Hyaluronic acid is an ingredient often used in skincare to alleviate dry skin, reduce the appearance of ageing and speed up healing. Kyn’s Hyaluronic Acid is a treatment that breathes life back into hair - but the point-of-difference is that this can be used to treat hair, and as a scalp treatment. It also features Vitamin C to protect hair from future damage, and Aloe Vera to soothe damaged skin.
The best way to ensure a clean scalp, healthy hair and hair colour that retains its lustre is to use a shampoo that will not only cleanse the scalp and clean hair, nourish and moisturise while keeping your colour in the best state possible. It can be confusing with different coloured shampoos on the market to know which is the correct one to use, so we have broken it down for you.
We often talk about a change of wardrobe when a new season rolls in, but what about a change to our haircare routine?
It’s extremely common to experience changes in your hair and scalp as the change in season arrives.
