Your scalp is the most ignored part of your body. Yes, it’s true. Despite being the thickest skin of your body covered with abundant hair follicles and attached to large sebaceous glands. Wonder why scalp care often takes a back seat! As per experts, scalp care is also as important as skincare and haircare. It is essential to maintain a healthy, problem-free scalp, which is for obvious reasons a prerequisite for healthy hair growth. In 2023, we can see that scalp care has become the new skincare. Get the complete scoop on scalp care in this blog.

What Is Scalp Care?

Scalp care refers to a set of practices designed to maintain the health and well-being of the scalp. This can include various activities such as cleansing, exfoliating the scalp, moisturizing the scalp, and using various hair and scalp treatments to nourish the scalp. Scalp care is essential because a healthy scalp can contribute to the growth of healthy, strong locks. Many also realized that taking good care of their scalp helps reduce various scalp issues, such as the itchy scalp, dandruff, and dry scalp, which causes irritation and discomfort.

Why Is Scalp Care Important?

Just like fertile soil ensures the healthy growth of plants, a healthy scalp ensures the growth of healthy hair. Don’t you have a tailored skincare regime for yourself to maintain clear, radiant skin? Similarly, tailored scalp care should be in place to promote a healthy, clean scalp. Besides that, the haircare products you use will only show it’s effectiveness if your scalp is ready. Beauty brands are currently creating a range of scalp care products aimed at promoting scalp and hair health. 

As per a recent study, your scalp skin is more prone to dryness and ages five to six times faster than the skin of the rest of your body. This is because your scalp is positioned to be exposed directly to UV rays, heat, pollution and extreme climatic conditions. You may be applying sunscreen to protect your facial skin and the other exposed parts of your body, but nothing is being done to protect your scalp skin. You can start your scalp care routine with ThriveCo Scalp Care Kit for heathy scalp and healthy hair. Better late than never, let's pay attention to the importance of scalp care and begin now.

Common Scalp Problems

Scalp Problems

Scalp skin is equally delicate and sensitive as your facial skin. If proper scalp care is not maintained, you may encounter problems like dandruff, itchiness and scalp inflammation.

  • Dry scalp conditions are a common problem that can lead to conditions such as psoriasis and eczema.
  • Impetigo is a scalp condition in which an itchy scalp is accompanied by red sores forming a crust after bursting.
  • Folliculitis is an infection in hair follicles and causes bumps on your scalp. These bumps can sometimes be small as a whitehead or appear as a large blister.
