Just as a building depends on starting with a good foundation, fabulous hair begins at the roots, so having a healthy scalp plays a big part in whether your hair is shiny and in good condition. Glands around your hair follicles supply needed natural oils to maintain healthy hair. When your scalp is dry or irritated, the hair that grows from your follicles may not be in the best condition either. Check out the following tips to keep your scalp healthy, such as using the right shampoos with added beneficial extracts such as noni.
Protect Your Head
According to a dermatologist, because your scalp is covered with skin like the rest of your body, you should protect it from the damaging UV rays of the sun. An old myth is that wearing a hat or head covering can cause baldness or lead to the hair falling out. However, this is untrue. Damage from UV rays can cause the thinning process to speed up, so wearing a head covering, at least when UV rays are strong or when you expect to be outdoors for an extended period of time on a sunny day, may be a good idea.
Brush Your Hair Before You Shower
Brushing your hair includes brushing your scalp to distribute natural oils and exfoliate dead skin cells. Because skin cells on your scalp that are dead can inhibit growth of the hair and clog up follicles, brushing the scalp can loosen and remove those dead skin cells, as well as stimulate the scalp and distribute oils. Brushing your hair right before a shower is helpful because when you shampoo in the shower, those dead skin cells are removed from your scalp and hair while the distributed natural oil helps protect it.
Treat Your Scalp With Supplements
Vitamins intended to nourish the skin and hair can make your scalp more healthy and improve your hair at the same time. Look for a combination of omega-3, silica, biotin, iron and vitamins C, E and B for hair growth and a healthy scalp.
Using the Right Shampoo
Harsh shampoos can cause both your scalp and hair to dry out. By using a gentle shampoo with 97 percent natural ingredients, such as Biconi Hair Revitalising Shampoo Bar, you are treating your scalp and hair to noni extracts and virgin coconut oil, which promote a healthy scalp and hair. Noni fruit extract has antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral properties that combine with virgin coconut oil to clean the scalp gently, removing dead skin cells and encouraging healthy growth.
Condition Your Hair
Just as the hair benefits from using conditioner, the scalp does too. Some men and women stay away from using conditioners with the false believe that it weighs down the hair and clogs hair follicles on the scalp, but this isn't true. However, just as the body's skin benefits from regular hydration, so does the scalp. Using a natural conditioner with noni extract, cocoa butter and virgin coconut oil, such as Biconi Hair Repair Conditioner can nourish both your scalp and hair.
Treat Yourself to a Scalp Massage
Everyone knows that having your scalp massaged while getting it shampooed at a hairdresser is relaxing and feels great. However, what is happening is that the blood flow and lymphatic drainage increases during a scalp massage, which is good for the hair follicles. Whether you treat yourself to a scalp massage or do it yourself, your scalp will thank you.
Taking good care of your scalp is one way to promote healthy, shiny hair, including using products that nourish and condition. Biconi has products for men, women and children that can help you maintain your hair and skin in a healthy way. Shop men's products to find exciting products that contain noni.
