Why the 3-Step Daily Regime Works Wonders
Scalp care is as important as skincare – if not more so. Here’s why.
Shopping for the best shampoo for your hair type can feel daunting. In the last few years, the haircare industry has exploded with a ton of new products that aim to keep your hair and scalp healthy. That’s a good thing, because we now know more about the scalp, and are finally addressing the scalp skin’s unique needs. Did you know that the scalp ages six times faster than the skin on your face and body? Say it with us: Scalp care matters. The skin on the top of your head is as important to take care of as the skin on the rest of your body.
Why is Scalp Health So Important?
The scalp has a higher density of hair follicles, sweat glands and sebaceous glands than any other part of the body. It also has its own distinctive microflora, making the scalp a hot bed for harmful bacteria that feed off the excess sebum, sweat and grime that accumulate daily. This makes us extra prone to scalp disorders like dandruff, itchiness, acne, inflammation and even hair loss.
When hair follicles are clogged by sebum, dandruff, styling residue or other impurities, the follicle shrinks. The number of hairs growing from the follicle – usually two to three on a healthy scalp – reduces and hair loss or thinning occurs. Once the scalp is damaged and deteriorates, it is incredibly hard to reverse the effects. That’s why it’s crucial to start taking care of your scalp sooner rather than later.
How to Care for the Scalp in 3 Simple Steps
While skincare addresses fine lines, hyperpigmentation, loss of firmness and elasticity, scalp care treats and prevents concerns that include dandruff and flaking, scalp sensitivity or dryness, oily scalp and acne, scalp ageing and premature greying, as well as different types of hair loss.
Your scalp health is directly correlated to how good your hair looks. Just like how the skin looks best when it’s well-hydrated and the pores are unclogged and clean, the scalp functions at its best with regular exfoliation and a good scalp care regime – and this is true even for those with no visible scalp troubles. Regularly removing dirt, excess sebum, product residue, debris and impurities is basic scalp care 101. A fresh scalp makes for happy, beautiful hair.
The PHS HAIRSCIENCE 3-Step Daily Regime is designed to give your scalp the TLC it needs for strong, healthy and beautiful hair. Here’s how:
Double cleansing is the backbone of a good daily regime. Using breakthrough shampoo technology, our shampoos are designed for double cleansing, nurturing and defending the scalp and hair without stripping off natural protective oils.
Start with ADV Nutrition Shampoo, a deep cleanser that removes unhealthy build-up from the scalp with the natural clarifying power of rice stem cells. Follow immediately with a Correcting Shampoo that targets specific hair/scalp concerns. For instance, if you are suffering from hair loss, choose FEM Fortify or HOM Fortify for your Correcting Shampoo. To fight dandruff and rebalance oily scalp, pick ADV Purify, while ADV Soothe is best for the delicate care of sensitive scalp. PHS HAIRSCIENCE offers a range of 14 shampoos targeted at different hair and scalp types, so there’s something suitable for everyone.
