How to Keep Your Scalp Healthy for Strong, Shiny Hair

Let’s talk about something we all tend to overlook—our scalp. An unhealthy scalp can lead to greasy roots, dandruff, and even hair loss. Recently, The Telegraph highlighted the growing importance of scalp health. Given how much we invest in our hair, it’s high time we pay attention to the root of the problem—literally.

The Importance of Scalp Health

Imagine your scalp as the soil in a garden; if it’s not healthy, nothing will flourish. The scalp microbiome—a community of microorganisms including bacteria and fungi—plays a crucial role in maintaining the health of both your scalp and hair. An imbalance can lead to conditions like dandruff, seborrheic dermatitis, and hair thinning. With the scalp aging six times faster than our face, we need to take its care seriously.
