Your scalp needs attention too ...

Did you know that your scalp is an extension of the skin on your face? If you look at it from this perspective, you may treat it with more of the attention and care that you devote to your face. The scalp requires proper treatment to maintain an optimal environment that promotes healthy strong hair. Similar to facial skin, the scalp is susceptible to everything we come into daily contact with - for example, toxins, air pollutants, chlorine and sunlight can affect the scalp skin, promote hair thinning and cause irritation.

Also, selecting products for cleaning, conditioning and styling can be a challenge since many of these products contain harsh ingredients that can damage the hair and create build-up on the scalp. In some cases, build-up can clog the hair follicle and cause an infection to start. The presence of dandruff can further exacerbate the condition of your scalp, however, dual purpose moisturizing anti-dandruff shampoos and conditioners containing pyrithione zinc are a simple and effective solution to keep the flaking under control.
