The Importance Of A Good Scalp Routine

When it comes to trying to obtain healthy hair many of us often neglect the importance of scalp health. When shopping for hair care products, you may feel tempted to look for ingredients that are focused on benefitting the hair but it is important to remember that healthy hair begins with the scalp. In fact, neglecting scalp health may even lead to more complicated issues such as dandruff, flaky skin, and irritation. Think of scalp health as the soil in a garden. If the soil in your garden is dry and lacks nutrients, then the plants you are trying to grow will suffer and their growth will be stunted. However, if the soil in your garden is well-tended to and given proper nutrients then the plants in your garden will thrive. In order to grow healthy hair and prevent scalp-related issues such as dandruff and hair loss, it is important to target scalp health with powerful soothing and protective ingredients.

Now you may be wondering, how do I know if my scalp needs a little extra TLC? Many determining factors need to be considered when examining scalp health. Still, generally, if you find yourself experiencing symptoms such as flaky skin, itching, redness, and/or irritation, it may be time to change up your scalp care routine. In this article we will break down an easy 3 step scalp care routine using RKT Hair Products plus a few more simple tips you can easily add to your hair care regimen to improve the health of your scalp. Don’t worry, no complicated DIY scalp masks, expensive hair tools, nor rubbish included!

Healthy Scalp Routine Step 1: Ensure You Are Properly Cleansing Your Scalp

It may seem like common knowledge to make sure that you are washing your scalp but nonetheless we want to emphasize the importance of regularly shampooing your scalp. In this healthy scalp routine, it is important to make sure that you routinely wash your scalp with a high-quality shampoo that is free of harsh sulfates, parabens, and artificial colors such as the RKT Hair Care Shampoo. Not only does the RKT Hair Care Shampoo gently cleanse the scalp, but it also delivers nutrients such as Aloe, Ginseng, and other natural ingredients that nourish the skin on the scalp just as skincare product would. Cleansing the scalp is an important step in this healthy scalp routine because it removes excess buildup such as dirt and excessive oils on the scalp that could cause scalp issues. neglecting washing the scalp using a shampoo that contains nourishing ingredients could cause scalp issues such as inflammation, itching, and dandruff to name a few. When using shampoo, make sure to apply a quarter-size amount focusing mainly on the scalp and creating a rich lather.

Healthy Scalp Routine Step 2: Apply Conditioner to Moisturize Hair

Applying a high-quality conditioner is a crucial step in this healthy scalp routine because it prevents moisture loss and helps keep the hair from looking dull. Because shampoo removes some oils from the hair, it is important to follow up shampoo with a quality conditioner to keep hair hydrated but not weighed down. RKT Hair Care's Conditioner is a standout product because it contains coconut oil and squalane as ingredients. Coconut oil is a fantastic natural emollient that moisturizes, making hair soft, and prevents hair breakage and split ends. Squalane is another key ingredient in the conditioner which is unique in that it is very similar to the scalp's natural oils which helps to replace lost moisture and smooths the hair. When using conditioner make sure to apply enough to coat the hair evenly but focusing mainly on the ends.

Applying a scalp treatment regularly is a step many people miss in their hair and scalp care routines; however, it is a crucial step in this 3-step healthy scalp routine. Adding a scalp treatment to your routine not only treats scalp issues such as inflammation, dandruff, and flaking, but also keeps the scalp's ph balanced and delivers topical nutrients directly that it may otherwise be missing. A healthy scalp is the foundation of healthy hair growth, therefore, it is important to implement a product targeted towards scalp health to make sure it is getting the ingredients it needs to grow healthy hair.
