Hair care, when done correctly, encompasses all sectors of the hair. To care for your tresses properly, you must not neglect the scalp. A healthy scalp is the breeding ground for healthy hair. Once your scalp is properly maintained, it will be more useful in helping maintain a lovely head of hair.

When dealing with shorter hair, scalp maintenance becomes more important. The hair is subjected to more styling and products which can sometimes lead to hair loss. Fortunately, with the proper care and products this can be prevented or better yet, reversed.

At the base level of scalp care, a finger massage can be very beneficial.  Coat fingertips in Vitamin E liquid or Olive Oil and tread scalp from the temples inward to the crown and then backwards. This promotes blood movement throughout the scalp and in turn stimulates growth. Done before bed, this can be a tranquil transition to sleep after a hectic day.  Oils and herbs are also miraculous in healthy scalps.  Vitamin B-50 Complex taken twice daily has been proven to reduce oil buildup and control flakes. Evening Primrose Oil, Lavender, Calamus, Birch leaves, Gentian, St.Johns Wart and Flaxseed Oil are also great choices to reduce flaking and control dandruff. Remember to add olive oil as a diluting agent. Most of these herbs contain the fatty acid Omega-3 which does wonders for hair.  An onion, very high in sulfur, will also help avoid scalp dryness when rubbed on the head. Onion juice can also be mixed with olive oil and put on the head before washing. Carnelia Oil, Deep Sea water and white tea help exfoliate and rejuvenate the scalp.  To disinfect the scalp, tea tree oil is the key ingredient to look for in products. If you decide to use this essential oil naturally, always dilute with olive oil or water. It is very potent and can cause burns or adverse reactions.

When caring for your scalp, always be mindful of your shampoo and conditioner choices. If you find your hair to be dry or itchy,your shampoo may be too strong. Try baby shampoo for a month to restore over-dried hair. Remember to keep scratching to a minimum, eliminating it if possible. Use a Q-Tip dipped in witch hazel to gently assuage an itch. Brush hair before washing if scratching/dandruff occur. Avoiding alcohol based products will also cut back on dandruff.

If you suffer from a scalp disorder, such as psoriasis, try tar based products and treatments as well as those containing salicylic acid.

Remember, there is not a Cure-All for scalp or hair problems as we are all different. Trial and Error is the only way to see what works. Be careful with your hair. If anything burns you excessively or you feel discomfort, stop use immediately.

Good Luck
