Another post about scalp health - I know... CRAZY!
But a few more tidbits I learned about scalp health in my second treatment that affect hair health:
- a healthy follicle has 2-3 hairs growing out of it, whereas an unhealthy follicle 1 (or none)
- the healthy follicle has a 2-6 year cycle
- an unhealthy follicle has a 6 month cycle
- hair regrows 25x in a lifetime, so a healthy scalp could aid in escaping balding, hair-fall and even reverse premature greying
- putting your hair up or throwing on a ball cap ['m looking at you guys!] when your hair is wet, actually prevents oxygen from circulating, follicles clog resulting in an unhealthy scalp [hm.... which came first the baldness or the ball caps???]
- silicone - known as a great ingredient to skincare and makeup is not advised for hair products, especially at the scalp as it seals the scalp causing weaker follicles.
Think of this as a scalp facial!
