Let’s talk about your scalp. Sure, it’s not the sexiest topic in the world, you can’t even see it. But really, you can, because everything (both good and bad) that is going on with your scalp shows up in your hair. Experiencing breakage? Flakes and itch? Excess oil? Slow growth? The answer likely resides with your scalp care, or lack thereof. The good news is, these issues are easily remedied by giving your scalp some much-needed TLC. Not sure where to start? The product-loving-people here at VIOLET GREY have curated a selection of must-haves for a happy, healthy scalp and beautiful, luscious hair.

NO ONE LIKES A FLAKE.

Chances are you are exfoliating your face and body to rid your skin of dead cells, but did you know that your scalp has the same need? If you see flakes, your scalp feels dry, or you get oily at the root, scalp exfoliation will open up your world. By removing dead skin, your other hair treatments will penetrate better, your hair will grow faster, and oil won’t collect in the pores, so you will be able to go longer between washes. Look for treatment shampoos like Oribe’s Serene Scalp with exfoliating salicylic acid, or use a conditioning scalp scrub like Virtue’s Exfoliating Scalp Treatment. For instant relief, keep Sunday II Sunday’s Soothe Me, a cooling treatment that eases itch in just 15 minutes, on hand. Scalp exfoliation will positively transform your hair, and it is oh-so-easy to do.

RESTORE BALANCE.

Imagine your scalp as a biodome––skin hair, follicles, oils, and products that need to work in healthy harmony with one another. These elements require vitamins, minerals, and proteins in order to function together to produce your healthiest possible hair. Virtue’s Topical Scalp Supplement provides these essential nutrients in a lightweight serum that absorbs easily into your scalp, balancing, reviving, aad strengthening your hair. Oribe’s Serene Scalp Conditioner will help restore your scalp after cleansing, and will leave your hair super-shiny and soft. Make sure you also keep balance in mind when choosing styling products like dry shampoo, as many can cause buildup and throw your dome out of whack. Go for Act+Acre’s Plant Based Dry Shampoo which provides essential nutrients to your hair and scalp and won’t clog pores.

CREATE GOOD ENERGY.

If you are a fan of microneedling for the face, you know what increased blood flow can do for the skin. Now, Beauty Bio is offering their same best-selling microneedling technology for your scalp with their new GloPro Scalp Attachment. The gentle technology energizes the scalp, encouraging hair growth and it’s head-hugging design means you won’t experience any pulling or breakage. If serums are more your thing, Sisley’s Revitalizing Fortifying Serum rejuventates and soothes the scalp and leaves hair softer and shinier with every application.
