The scalp is often overlooked as part of our daily self-care routine. Nevertheless, the health of our hair starts from the scalp. A healthy scalp equals healthy hair, and it’s crucial to keep our scalp healthy through regular maintenance and treatments. In this blog post, we will discuss two popular treatments that have been proven to promote scalp health – Scalp Massage and Hydrafacial Keravive Scalp Treatment.
What Defines a Healthy Scalp?
A healthy scalp, according to the American Academy of Dermatology, is one that is balanced and free of dryness, irritation, and excessive oily or flaky patches. To maintain a healthy scalp you should shampoo regularly (at least twice a week), use lukewarm water to rinse, and avoid over-brushing or scratching.
Benefits of a Healthy Scalp
The health of your scalp determines the health of your hair. Having a healthy scalp can reduce the risk of hair loss, dandruff, itching and flaking. It also helps regulate the production of natural oils that nourish both your scalp and hair, leading to thicker, stronger, and shinier locks. A healthy scalp also promotes circulation which aids with faster-growing hair.
Signs of an Unhealthy Scalp
Some common signs of an unhealthy scalp include:
- Persistent itching
- Intense burning sensation
- Presence of bumps on the scalp
- Excessive oiliness
- Severe dandruff
- Noticeable hair loss
Ways to Maintain a Healthy Scalp
Use gentle hair care products
It’s important to choose the right hair care products for your scalp. Gentle and natural shampoos, conditioners, and styling products will help protect your scalp from irritation. If you have an itchy or dry scalp, try using a hydrating shampoo that contains essential oils such as jojoba oil or tea tree oil.
Rather than scrubbing your scalp aggressively, use a gentle massage motion to work the shampoo into your hair. Choose lukewarm water when rinsing out the shampoo as hot showers can dry out your scalp and strip away essential oils.
Don’t brush too often
Brushing your hair is important for distributing natural oils evenly across your scalp but over-brushing can damage the hair follicles and cause your scalp to become dry and irritated. Try using a natural-bristle brush for gentle detangling instead.
Wash less often
Washing your hair too often can strip away its natural oils, leaving it dry and irritated. Try reducing the frequency of your washes to once or twice a week depending on your scalp’s condition.
Protect from sun damage
Just like our skin, our scalps are vulnerable to sun damage if not properly protected. Always use a hat to shield your scalp from the harsh UV rays, and apply a leave-in conditioner to moisturize your scalp after a day in the sun.

How Hydrafacial Keravive Scalp Treatment Helps Achieve a Healthy Scalp

The serum used in the treatment is customized to target individual scalp concerns, providing a comprehensive solution. Keravive Scalp Treatment also promotes hair growth, reduces hair fallout, and increases fullness and thickness.
A scalp massage can also be beneficial in helping you relax your muscles and can also help stimulate blood flow to the scalp. This increases circulation and encourages healthy hair growth. Not only that, but it helps loosen and remove dirt and oil build up on the scalp.
