Like our body, our scalp absorbs everything we apply to it. And over time, they build up and wreak havoc on the scalp’s delicate ecosystem. For this reason, you need a detox treatment to completely get rid of all the harmful toxins and restore the balance.
You only wash your hair a few times a week (if at all).
Let’s face it, in the era of dry shampoo addictions and co-washing, most of us have abandoned the idea of shampooing our hair daily. While the short-term effects can be great for hair health, your scalp may not fare as well.
You’ve started a new lifestyle or diet.
It’s the new year, and you’ve probably started to make some positive changes to your diet and lifestyle. However, did you know when starting the detoxing process, toxins are expelled through your pores, including the large pores on your scalp? This can lead to breakouts, which can be quite painful and bothersome.
You’ve started to notice hair loss and thinning.
If you’re not suffering from alopecia areata, chances are your hair loss problem is caused by oxidative stress. While there can be various reasons why your hair is shedding more than normal, oftentimes it’s mainly because of the presence of excess free radicals and a low number of antioxidants in your body.
There’s a season change.
Yes, it’s not just you. Seasonal changes, especially winter, can cause flakes to appear. When not exfoliated, it can build up on the scalp and clog pores. Doing a deep cleansing and purifying treatment will not only buff away the flakes but also restore moisture and balance to the damaged scalp.
You live in an area where there are too many environmental toxins.
Do you live in an area where there’s too much pollution? Toxic fumes and substances are never completely washed away by shampoo. Most of them are quickly absorbed by the scalp, causing free radical damage to the skin cells and hair follicles.
You’re heavy handed with hard-to-remove styling products.
Ever felt your hair grimy and waxy despite how many times you wash it? While styling products do serve a purpose, product residues that remain on the scalp and hair can cause dehydration and irritation when not removed properly.
