Your Scalp Detox Routine

Your Scalp Detox Routine

January is a great time to consider all our personal care rituals.

One area that’s often overlooked and forgotten is scalp health. Like the skin elsewhere it can become clogged and dull. Even more so if an excess of harsh hair products are used. Often not designed for skin, these products seep down, build up and easily clog the hair follicles. Combined with poor diet and lack of exercise it can lead to some chronic scalp and hair conditions.

Scalp and hair health are a great indicator of overall wellness. Most people suffer occasional dry scalp or dandruff. Dandruff is usually linked to excess oiliness, and possibly a reaction to bacterial infection, lack of vitamins and minerals, or the body’s inflammatory reaction to too much yeast. Allowed to develop, poor scalp health can also lead to weaker thinner hair growth. Scalps need to breathe easy, free of the suffocating product build up, pollution, excess sebum, oils and dead skin.

Healthy Scalp Ritual
A weekly detox treatment is an essential part of a healthy scalp regime, and ensures your hair is growing strong, glossy and gorgeous. All our 3 more inches products were originally developed for professional use at the Michael Van Clarke salon.

Exfoliating Scalp Treatment is applied to the wet hair and massaged onto the scalp. Leave for 20 minutes and the natural fruit acids help lift away dead skin and build up.

Follow up with Exfoliating Scalp Shampoo at least twice a week. The plant extracts help clear flakiness and soothe scalp, stimulating blood flow and promoting cellular renewal. Its anti-dandruff, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties help strengthen hair and reduce hair loss.

Amazing Ingredients

  • Regenerative exfoliants use AHA fruit acids from bilberry, sugar maple and citrus fruits
  • Soothing and anti inflammatory aloe-rich formula with extracts of comfrey, olive oil and lemongrass
  • Stimulating and purifying oils of eucalyptus, rosemary, peppermint and lavender
  • Unique cashmere protein; almost identical to human hair to strengthen, rebuild and protect

ZERO – Silicone, phthalates, parabens, xenoestrogens, micro-beads and other nasties.

Tips for Healthy Scalp and Hair

Avoid using silicones which attach to hair and scalp and cause build up. Cut down on sugar - unhealthy bacteria go partying on this. Protein in your diet is essential for maintaining healthy scalp and hair. Vitamin A and C, help circulate Oxygen to the scalp. Iron, zinc and folic acid are all good for scalp health.

Healthy Scalp = Healthy Hair

 

Problem – Overactive scalps can produce excess sebum. This leaves hair feeling oily, flat or lifeless and can lead to seborrheic scalp conditions.

 

Solution – Citrus oil, bio-sulphur, plant extracts and minerals, cleanse and rebalance scalp and improve blood circulation. Protective multivitamin A, B, E, F & H, herbal complex helps reduce hair loss. Cashmere amino acids build volume so your hair feels fresh, vibrant and fuller.

 

 


• Deep cleanses with citrus and plant extracts
• Rebalances with bio-sulphur and horse chestnut
• Improves hair strength and texture with biotin and cashmere protein
