Your Scalp & Your Health

When you have a headache it’s your body’s way of telling you that something is wrong. Maybe you need to eat, maybe you’re lacking vitamins, or maybe you’re a little dehydrated – all of these things cause headaches. You can take an Advil and feel a little better, but why not address the root of the issue? Just because you silence a headache doesn’t mean the problem has gone away.

The same can be said for your scalp. Is it red, flaky, itchy, or sore? You need to listen to your body.

Itching and Burning

A scalp that has a persistent itch is most likely trying to tell you that there’s something unhealthy going on. Sometime’s an irritated scalp can be due to a chemical reaction or product overuse. You want to be sure that you use products that dont dry out your scalp and strip it of all it’s important oils. To get a better idea of what products are good for your hair check out this blog post

Excess Oil

If your scalp has stopped regulating its own oil production properly it might begin to recreate the oils being stripped away by chemical shampoos. It’s important to recognize when your scalp has gone into panic mode and begins to look extra greasy. Toss out those chemical laden shampoos and try something organic which will help your scalp manage its own oils without interference.


Chemical hair products disrupt the natural acidity and pH balance of your hair and can lead to a very unhealthy scalp. The natural acidity of your hair prevents fungi and bacteria on the scalp and keeps the cuticle closed and healthy. When the scalp is too alkaline it can separate and shed flakes. A gentle cleanser might help and Apple Cider Vinegar may enhance your odds of balancing and restoring your scalp’s natural levels.
