        5 Healthy Scalp Tips for Long Shiny Hair

         

        Everyone has a different kind of hair. Some of us are curly. Some of us are pin straight. Some are bright blonde, dark brown, dyed pink and all natural. But no matter what our hair looks and feels like, it all starts at the same place: our scalps. The scalp is literally where our hair begins. According to the American Academy of Dermatology Association, our scalps have about 100,000 follicles. Each one has a single strand of hair that grows from it. That is 100,000 opportunities every day to improve ourselves from the head down! 


        Our scalp produces natural oil called sebum that serves as a skin protectant, keeping it moisturized and free from debris and bacteria that could cause infection. Because a healthy scalp also means healthy hair growth, our scalps can be the key to growing healthy beautiful hair. So, how do you take care of your scalp? 


        Here are five ways you can take better care of your scalp to promote long shiny hair. 

        1. Use high-quality, gentle products. Even minor scalp problems can lead to damaged, broken hair that is dull and lifeless. Products with sulfates, alcohol, and harsh chemicals strip away your natural oils. This is a compounding problem for your scalp. An irritated scalp limits growth and dulls its shine, creating a cycle of damage and unhealthy results. Instead, use high-quality products that infuse your hair and scalp with nutrients, vitamins and minerals. Pai-Shau’s Signature Tea Complex, found in all our products, accomplishes this and more, promoting beautiful shine and healthy hair treatments that start at the follicle. 

        2. If your scalp is itchy, it needs your help. Treat it. When the oils break down on our scalp, the skin becomes inflamed and irritated. This can cause dryness and itching. But worse, when the oil is stripped away, so is your skin’s protection. This means itchy skin could also signify the potential for infection. Treat your scalp with hydrating products that soothe the skin and can help restore the natural balance and create an environment for healthy growth. 

        3. Follow directions and massage the shampoo into your scalp. Most shampoos instruct you to massage the product into your scalp. Note: Massaging is not scrubbing it aggressively. When you scrub your scalp too hard, you can irritate it. Instead, massage your high-performance products gently into the scalp. This promotes circulation and healthy growth. 

        4. Incorporate more antioxidants. Oxidative stress damages the hair, skin and body—including your scalp—with free radicals. By increasing your antioxidants, both through diet and with products like those from Pai-Shau, you extend their benefits, fortifying your scalp and your hair with the nutrients they need to live their best lives.

        5. Look for Rooibos Tea. This powerful tea, also found in our Signature Tea Complex, contains protein to help strengthen hair. It also features anti-inflammatory properties to soothe the scalp of any irritation. When the scalp is healthy, like a well-tilled garden soil, it provides a fertile place for healthy growth, delivering beautiful shiny hair. 


        Ultimately, a healthy scalp will help deliver healthier looking, shiny hair that’s full of life. Ensure your scalp stays at its best by using high-quality products and key ingredients that support growth and wellness from the top down. 

        5 benefits you can see by putting tea on your hair

        benefits of tea for hair

        You probably already know the health benefits that come with drinking tea. It can lower your cholesterol, boost your energy, and even help you drop a few pounds. What you might not know know, however, is that drinking tea isn’t the only way to reap its health benefits. In fact, using tea on your hair just might be the answer to some of your biggest hair struggles.       

        If you don't already know, Pai-Shau's Signature Tea Complex is a blend of five steeped teas that are infused into each and every one of our products.

        Signature Tea Complex

        Here are the benefits of using tea in your hair care routine:

        1. It keeps hair soft and shiny

        Tea is packed with good-for-you nutrients that can help make damaged hair soft and shiny again. The antioxidants it contains work to remove buildup and help your hair absorb nourishing vitamins and minerals, as well as protect it from UV rays that can further damage and dry out strands. This leaves you with soft, shiny, and most importantly, healthy hair.

        2. It prevents split ends

        Studies have found that panthenol, an ingredient in green tea, is especially efficient in preventing split ends. This, along with other vitamins and antioxidants found in tea, make it extremely helpful in preventing breakage and strengthening strands.

        3. Tea soothes irritated scalps

        Tea is a strong anti-inflammatory, so it soothes the scalp and helps with irritation and inflammation. The ingredients in tea also help remove dead skin cells that can block hair follicles and leave them clogged, which is great news for people with dandruff or itchy scalps.

        4. Tea can stop hair loss

        Many teas contain caffeine, which is great when you need a mid-afternoon boost. But did you know that it can also help prevent hair loss? The caffeine in tea naturally suppresses a hormone called DHT, which is the compound that’s responsible for hair loss.

        5. Tea helps your hair grow

          Not only does tea keep your hair from falling out, it can also help it grow! The caffeine works to stimulate the hair follicles and increase circulation and blood flow to your scalp. This stimulation encourages hair growth in a healthy, natural way that won’t leave your scalp feeling angry and irritated.
