PostSubject: Maintaining Healthy Scalp and Hair   Fri Apr 24, 2009 6:21 pm

Your hair is your crowning glory. You spend time and money making sure that you have a flattering style and color. But healthy hair can be more than a reflection of your sense of style and fashion. It can give a snapshot of your general well-being, not to mention your grooming practices.



For a healthy head of hair you must first have a healthy scalp. This begins with good health regimen of eating well-balanced meals, a regular routine of exercise, and adequate sleep. This is, of course, the basis for maintaining a healthy body. With this in place there are some special things to pay attention to in order to maintain a healthy scalp. Here are some tips that can keep your scalp looking and feeling great:



1. Pay attention to the products that you use.

Most people have the mistaken idea that shampoos and other hair care products are gentle to the skin. In fact, shampoos can have a drying effect on the scalp and hair. They can also change the pH factor. This is the scale used to measure acidity and alkalinity. Skin and hair are naturally acidic, while soaps are alkaline. You donít have to be a chemist to know if the shampoo you are using is upsetting the balance and is too harsh. Youíll experience itching and dry scalp. In some cases you can even feel a burning sensation.

If you color or perm your hair, before you use the product do a sensitivity test on a small area. If you go to a salon, your stylist will either test a small area or ask about sensitivities to hair care products.



2. Limit your exposure to the sun. We have been educated to the fact that the sun can cause skin cancer. We have gotten into the habit of using sun screen. But your hair wonít protect that sensitive scalp. You should always wear a hat if you are planning to be outside for more than a brief period of time. Prolonged exposure can cause your scalp to burn.



3. If you have dandruff consider using a shampoo that has an antidandruff formula. It is a common misconception that dandruff is the result of a dry scalp. Dandruff is the result of a more rapid shedding of the skin cells than normal.



4. Consult a dermatologist if you show signs of eczema or seborrhea. The warning signs are: itching, blisters, or a rash.



5. Maintain good-grooming practices. When you wash your hair, use your knuckles rather than your fingernails to give yourself a good scalp massage. This will increase circulation to the scalp and promote healthy skin. Wash your hair on a regular basis using products that are gentle to your skin.
