If you want to fix a problem, you have to start at the root of the issue. It makes sense then that if you want healthy hair, you need to start at the scalp. Unfortunately, in the pursuit of gorgeous hair, we often ignore the health of our scalp and overload it with products and chemicals. The result? Brittle, unhealthy hair that's prone to issues like split ends and breakage. That’s why it's important to give your scalp a break and do a total detox.
Why is this important?
The health of your scalp determines the health of your hair. The products you use everyday can build up on your scalp over time, resulting in irritation and clogged hair follicles. When you detox, you get rid of all this unhealthy buildup. Your scalp will feel clean and renewed and your hair will have a perfect environment to grow and flourish.
How to detox
While the word “detox” might make the process seem intense, a scalp detox is actually fairly simple and painless. We’ll break it down into a few easy-to-follow steps below:
Step 1: Cleanse
First, you need to clean off all those chemicals that have been sitting on your scalp and causing irritation. Pai-Shau Replenishing Hair Cleanser is gentle, color safe, and provides a thorough cleansing to get rid of excess build up. Experts recommend starting your lather at the nape of your neck and working your way up to your hairline. To really get the most out of your cleanse, section your hair into parts and spend a few minutes scrubbing each section of your scalp.
Step 2: Moisturize
Once you’ve cleansed and gotten rid of all the buildup, treat your scalp to some much-needed moisture. Pai-Shau Supreme Revitalizing Mask, an moisturizing mask for hair soaks in moisture without weighing your hair down. Massage a generous amount into your scalp and hair, and let sit for five minutes. If you'd like, now would be the time to use a scalp massaging brush as well. This is not only relaxing for you but also great for increasing blood flow and helping the product sink into the hair follicles.
Step 3: Maintain
The final, and maybe most important step, is making sure that your scalp stays feeling this clean and refreshed. Using Pai-Shau Biphasic Infusion hair serum as a daily oil-free treatment locks in moisture and protects hair from root to tip. Do your best to stay away from harmful products that contain ingredients like silicone, which can clog hair follicles, and look for those that contain natural ingredients that are nourishing for both your hair and your scalp.
