Why We Need To Take Good Care Of Hair and Scalp

Sure, we select our preferred shampoo and conditioner quite well (mostly concerned about which will make the hair softer, more shiny, and which will make it grow faster)—but not many of us really look into the condition of our scalps. “Your scalp’s health is very important. You may not think about it much but there are many reasons as to why you need to have a healthy scalp. Dandruff is the clear indicator that you have a dry scalp. A dry scalp makes it much harder to get waves or define your natural hair texture. You may not shampoo enough, or possibly too much, and your scalp is telling you there’s an issue. The other major reason is not moisturizing efficiently. Starting today you can get on the road to the best scalp you have ever seen,” wrote an unnamed writer of the article for titled Why You Need to Take Care of Your Scalp.
Jenny who frequents a hajib friendly salon shared that she used to be alarmed about her falling hair, “Years back, when I turned 30, I noticed that whenever I comb my hair, there were too many hair strands that are trapped on my brush even if I comb my hair really slow and gently.” Jenny then opted to find a good scalp treatment salon in Singapore, “I researched online and found that my shampoo may be too harsh and my diet may not be doing my hair and scalp good. I immediately had a scalp treatment to make sure all those dandruff will leave my scalp. I also do regular scalp and hair treatments to make sure everything is handled with care.”
While hair products can damage the hair and scalp, another contributing factor for those itchy scalp and thinning hair may be because of our daily food intake, “Did you know that in many cases unusual hair loss and thinning hair are caused by nutritional deficiencies? In such cases, reversing hair loss may be as easy as adding foods rich in hair loss fighting nutrients to your daily diet. In this online guide, you will learn the best tips on how to prevent and reverse hair loss naturally through nutrition. An average healthy person naturally loses between 50 and 100 hairs a day. Within three to six years, most of the lost hairs will have grown back where the old ones fell out. However, in some cases the lost hair does not grow back, or it grows back very slowly, resulting in thinning hair. Thinning hair or hair loss may also result if your hair starts falling out at an abnormally rapid rate and your body is not able to make new hair at an equally rapid rate,” said’s article titled Guide to Reversing Hair Loss.
And while it seems more common to men, hair loss and hair thinning, is something that women can also suffer from. And as we have mentioned, reasons for this condition may not just be about the hair products that we use—it can be also about the food that we eat. And while there is not just one sure-fire way to fight this problem, there can be good habits and practices that can help as better hair loss solutions for women. “If you see the signs of receding hair line, and you notice than your hair is not thick as it used to, it’s time to have a major lifestyle check. Maybe you are eating too much fatty foods and less green leafy veggies, or maybe you have too much sodium in your diet. Maybe you need more protein for your hair to be healthier. Maybe you are too stressed out in your job that even your body and scalp are telling you to slow down, or maybe this is all about  genetics—that a lot of members of the family are suffering from, too,” shared Mitch, a salon owner. She added, “We all need to start taking care of our hair—and more importantly, our scalp, because no one wants to lose all their hair at a very young age. Or even when we are old and gray. A healthy hair and scalp usually indicate a healthy body as well.”
Some natural, homemade remedies for itchy scalps are:
  • Coconut oil
  •  Baking soda
  • Apple cider
  • Lemon juice
  • Banana
  • Avocado
  • Aloe vera
Most of the shampoos and conditioners we buy have harsh chemicals that can irritate the scalp and ruin the natural shine of our hair. If the condition becomes worst, it’s best to try a scalp treatment to treat the condition before you lose your crowning glory entirely and permanently.
