7 Essential Tips to Maintaining a Healthy Scalp

Introduction

Your scalp is well hidden by your hair, and because of that, the scalp is a part of the body which is often neglected. Like the skin on the rest of your body, your scalp is made up of layers of tissue. The lower layers of the scalp are often the newest and healthiest skin which is produced by your body. On the other hand, the outer layers of your scalp generally comprise of dead tissue and cells that are ready to be turned over by the body and shedded to reveal the newer layers of the skin. In order to take care of your scalp, the Wellaholic Team share 7 essential tips to maintain a healthy scalp and to eradicate scalp-related issues such as dandruff. 

1. Always Remember to Exfoliate

Exfoliation of the scalp helps to boost the skin cell turnover. If you can, exfoliate your scalp on a regular basis. In fact, if you suffer from conditions such as psoriasis or dry skin, you might want to exfoliate your scalp about two to three times a week. Exfoliation helps to remove and reduce dead skin cells from your scalp surface. To assist with the exfoliation, you can invest in a facial scrub and mechanically exfoliate your scalp before you apply and cleanse the area with a shampoo.
