SCALP CARE & DEALING WITH FLAKY SCALP IN SUMMER



Looking after your scalp to ensure it’s healthy and to avoid flaky scalp should be a priority all year round, however, it’s particularly important to look after your scalp in the summer, as your scalp can produce more oil in warmer, humid temperatures, which can lead to build up. Our scalp can also burn due to the sun, which can lead to a dry, flaky scalp. Below are some of my tips to look after your scalp and keep it protected during summer... 

 

  1. Use UV protection whilst in the sun! UV protection will form a barrier between your scalp and the sun, keeping your scalp protected and avoiding sunburn which can not only be painful, but can also lead to our scalp flaking. 

  2. Cover up! If you don’t want to use UV protection, wear a hat to protect your scalp from harsh UV rays. 

  3. Use a scalp scrub – scalp scrubs are an incredible product to invest in and have in your hair care routine all year round. A scalp scrub will give your scalp a deep cleanse, get rid of build up from products, chlorine, dirt, oil and impurities, and will keep your scalp cleansed, soothed and refreshed. Your scalp and hair will look a lot healthier and by using a scrub you will also promote hair growth.


4. Wash regularly – another important step to look after your hair and scalp to keep them clean, free from dirt, oil and build up. If you’re on holiday and the sea/the pool, you will also want to ensure you wash your hair after to remove chlorine on your hair and scalp, which can cause your scalp to become itchy, tight and dry. A clarifying shampoo is a good choice to get rid of buildup and help rebalance your scalp whilst being gentle too. Follow with a conditioner to keep your hair and scalp nourished as the sun sucks away moisture which can lead to dry scalp and hair. 


5. Avoid overusing styling products – using styling products excessively can create build up on your scalp which can lead to scalp issues. Instead, try to use products liberally and look for products that are lightweight or natural, as these are less likely to cause irritation.
