Scalp disorders are prevalent in the salon today. We commonly see any or all of these conditions on a daily basis. What is more concerning is the misinformation on creating good scalp health.
Have you been suffering from a dry, itchy scalp and noticed the fall out on your shoulders? Constantly sweeping it away before anyone notices…. its embarrassing! You’ve probably tried a myriad of products claiming to FIX the problem and yet still find yourself constantly scratching and in the process notice your mid lengths and ends becoming dry, delustered and unmanageable. We see this so often in the salon from all ages of guests. Our job at Alcyon is to prescribe for you the correct Bath and Care that will alleviate these symptoms and create a healthy environment for new hair growth. Firstly lets look at the various mistruths that float around about managing dry scalp.
Commonly heard misconceptions our guests have heard over the years – ‘Don’t wash your hair every day, it dries your hair out, washes out the colour and makes your scalp dry’ This doesn’t have to be true! Going back to basics is the only way to explain the importance of choosing the correct Shampoo and Conditioner. Your hair sits on a PH scale of 4.5-5.5. Harsh shampoos and conditioners that sit either too low in acid or too high in alkaline can disrupt the natural flora of the scalp and create damage to the mid lengths and ends of your hair, making them dry and unmanageable. Chemical processing from home or salon services, mechanical damage from straightening irons and hairdryers and environmental damage add another layer of damage to the scalp and hair shaft. Salon prescribed shampoos and conditioners are a step closer to relieving dry scalp and hair. We invite you to come in for a Free scalp consultation using our Kerastase Scalp Diagnosis Camera. We can show you our findings on the Ipad- you’ll see what we see. We can determine how sensitive your scalp is, determine what may be causing your itchiness, dry scalp, unmanageable hair.
