My scalp and I have been through quite the journey over the past year. While I’ve spent tons of time (and money) pampering my strands with hair masks and color-protecting shampoos, I admittedly always put scalp care on the backburner. Then, I discovered the skinification of hair trend, and it all changed. I started regularly exfoliating my scalp and nourishing my sometimes-dry crown, and I noticed a significant change. My strands felt healthier and stronger, and looked shinier.
Scalp care is a lot like skin care (and it’s just as important)! Like choosing a face wash and serum to target your specific skin concerns, you can tailor your scalp care routine to deal with any scalp-related woes you’re experiencing.
If you’re dealing with dryness:
Pureology Hydrate Shampoo
There are two issues that can strip the moisture from your scalp: over-shampooing or choosing the wrong shampoo formula. A sulfate-free product like Pureology Hydrate Shampoo can cleanse and hydrate your mane from root to tip without stripping your hair and scalp of natural oils. Follow your shampoo with the Hydrate Conditioner.
Mizani Scalp Care Calming Lotion
Kérastase Scrub Apaisant Deep Clean Fusio Dose Scrub
Even the driest, most sensitive scalp will benefit from this soothing, hydrating scrub. Massage a walnut-sized amount of product onto your scalp to exfoliate, stimulate, and soothe your scalp while removing pollution particles and build-up.
If dandruff is taking over your mane:
Biolage R.A.W Scalp Care Shampoo
Not only is this dandruff-fighting shampoo made with naturally-derived ingredients (for all of our green girls out there), but the exfoliating formula prevents dandruff from recurring. In short, you can say goodbye to those pesky flakes for good.
Mizani Scalp Care Shampoo
Those with curly or natural hair types should reach for this nourishing formula. One percent of pyrithione zinc helps prevent the recurrence of scalp flaking, scaling, and itching associated with dandruff.
If you have product build-up:

Give your mane the ultimate reset with this detoxifying clarifying shampoo. This formula can remove product build-up, excess oil, and pollution particles in one use, leaving your scalp and strands squeaky clean.
