Scalp Health: Discover the root to a healthy scalp

We all want good-looking and healthy hair. We spent a lot of time and money on hair products to look after our hair and try to make our luscious locks look good. But, what about your scalp? Did you know that your scalp’s health is just as important as the health of your hair? A healthy scalp leads to healthy hair, so it’s important to pay attention to your scalp.



Scalp issues such as dandruff, seborrheic dermatitis, atopic dermatitis, and psoriasis can lead to rough hair, hair breakage, and reduced hair shine. Luckily, there are some simple changes you can make to take better care of your scalp. Let’s take a look.

Use Gentle Hair Care Products

When your head starts to itch and feel uncomfortable the first thing most people do is reach for the anti-dandruff shampoo. This might get rid of dandruff but usually, it’s not always that great for your scalp. These types of products can contain harsh chemicals and ingredients, making your scalp even more sensitive and uncomfortable.

Avoid products that contain artificial fragrances, alcohols, and sulfates, which can damage your scalp. Sulfates strip away natural oils in your hair and remove dead skin cells, which can make your scalp dry and prone to irritation. You can use a pre-poo or conditioner from Be Organical if you want a hair product that is vegan, paraben-free, free from artificial fragrances, and environmentally conscious.

Avoid Over Washing

Many of us are guilty of washing our hair too often. You might think that washing your hair often will combat oily and greasy hair but our hair needs those oils to stay healthy and glossy. Washing your hair too often can actually have the opposite effect and leads to a vicious cycle of oily, greasy hair. If you wash your hair too often, your scalp produces more oil which causes you to add even more product and wash your hair more. Your poor scalp will only become more sensitive and problematic. If you struggle with dry and itchy scalp, slow down with the hair washing and give your scalp time to balance out the oil production process.

The Way You wash Your Hair

The actual way you wash your hair can also have an effect on your scalp. Do you put shampoo or conditioner in your hair and then roughly and vigorously start rubbing your scalp? If this sounds like you, you need to calm a little bit down with that. You do not need to take out your anger on that poor scalp of yours. Being rough with your scalp can lead to soreness, dandruff, and severe dryness or itchiness.

We recommend you put pre-shampooing to the test. Pre-pooing is the process of applying treatment to your hair before you actually start washing your hair. It’s helpful because shampooing can strip moisture from your hair. Applying a conditioner after shampooing isn't always enough to restore lost moisture. If you want to try this method you can use a pre-poo product from Be Organical and start your journey to a healthier scalp!
