Healthy Hair Is Rooted In A Healthy Scalp

Hair growth depends on a clean, clear scalp and a scalp needs proper care to stay healthy. Hair follicles must remain free of excess oil, dead skin, and product buildup. The process of removing excess oil from the follicles, however, should not strip the scalp of essential moisture. Finding the correct products and routine for balanced scalp care depends on individual skin type.

One major consideration for scalp care is whether or not to apply conditioner beginning at the hair’s roots. According to dictionary.com, an overly dry scalp can benefit from the added moisture of a quality conditioner and stop flaking. However, for normal to oily scalps, conditioning may lead to sticky, weighed-down hair at the crown. Applying conditioner to an oily scalp may also cause clogged hair follicles. Unless the scalp is excessively dry, it is best to start working conditioner into the hair shafts approximately mid-length and finish at the tips.

Another aspect to consider when cleansing and stimulating the scalp is the ingredients in the products. Sulfates, alcohol, and parabens damage both scalp and hair shaft yet are abundant in hair care products. Understanding this risk led the technicians at WEN® by Chaz to develop lines of products without these chemicals. For example, the five-in-one cleansing conditioner uses a mixture of oils and botanical herbs to cleanse and nourish the scalp and hair in one step.

Lack of sulfates in WEN® by Chaz products means they do not produce lather. Lathering additives, in fact, strip hair of natural shine and break down the hair shaft leaving it thinner and weaker with each use. The herbs and oils in WEN® products condition hair shafts leaving the hair with a smooth, polished finish and stronger cuticle. Hair becomes less likely to break or split yet easier to manage and style. For more information, visit wenhaircare.com.

A New Way to Shampoo!

Conditioning shampoos are growing in popularity among consumers who want to cleanse their hair in a different way. Society’s continuing push toward healthier living may be a contributor.

If you look on the back of the bottle of your favorite shampoo you might be surprised at what you discover. Many of today’s shampoos contain products which are less than desirable. Some of these common toxins are sulfates, polyethylene, preservatives, and fragrances. These ingredients are possible carcinogens and not whatsoever natural. In addition to being bad for your health, literally, ingredients such as these are not even necessary for cleaning your hair.

We think of traditional shampoos as one of the necessities of good personal hygiene. However, this assumption might need to be reconsidered.
