We’ve always been huge proponents of scalp care. Since our brand's inception, we have recognized that there are certain tenets to having healthy hair.

A healthy diet would be the first rule, taking care of your scalp is the second. Lately there has been a surge in the number of products, articles, and studies done revolving around scalp care. Undoubtedly, all this information can seem overwhelming. Especially when the products that are recommended seem all too similar and don’t always match information you’ve read elsewhere.

We’ve been studying scalps and hair care since day one. Our formulas are a benchmark for the beauty industry. They set the bar because they check all the boxes seeing as they are plant-based, effective, and designed for all types of hair. There are various products that you should use depending on certain traits your hair possesses (texture, age, treatment, and so on) but the holy grail product that everyone should be using regardless of these traits is a scalp-care product. Phytopollene is the product that we recommend to anyone looking to nurture their hair.

An unbalanced scalp is more common than you might think. The skin under your hair is sensitive and needs the same amount of attention you give to you face. Honestly, scalp care is just an extension of skin care and deserves to be treated with the same amount of importance. Every skin care article out there repeatedly stresses the importance of cleansing, exfoliating, and moisturizing. The scalp is the same. Only it requires more care since it’s hidden beneath your hair. So cleansing the scalp, exfoliating it, and moisturizing it is not going to be as simple as when you do it for your face but we’re here to guide you through it and help you understand what products to use. We’ve been talking about the importance of scalp care since the 60’s so we know a LOT about it.

Here are the basics:

Treat: Phytopolléine Scalp Treatment, guys. You gotta try it to believe it. It is worth the hype. This potent treatment is 100% botanical and formulated for anyone with an unbalanced scalp. It's formulated with lemon oil, essential oils of rosemary, sage & cypress, and corn oil. All of these ingredients help balance, scalp and reset the scalp.

Cleanse: Wash your scalp twice a week. Try to avoid daily washes as that strips your scalp of its natural oils forcing your body to produce more than it should. This leads to an unbalanced scalp. Chose a hair cleanser that is most suitable for your hair type and use it no more than necessary. During the winter months, we recommend a moisturizing cleanser since your skin and hair tend to be drier. In addition to that, hot showers can lead to dry skin, so you want to avoid that by washing your hair in luke warm water instead.

Exfoliate: There’s all this craze about scalp exfoliation using physical scrubs and chemical peels. However, the best way to exfoliate your scalp without aggravating your skin cells would be to gentle remove all the dead skin cells while shampooing your hair. You don’t need to use a rough hand to generate the best results. The scalp is sensitive. All it needs is to have a clean surface to be its healthiest. So an exfoliating treatment like Phytopolléine is all you need. It clears build up and removes dry skin without being even remotely harsh.

Balance: Just as with your complexion, there are many factors that can lead to brittle and lifeless hair, but it all starts at the scalp level. It is pivotal that the scalp is kept in a good condition and is balanced, as a healthy scalp will in turn lead to healthy-looking, gorgeous hair. The scalp is the bedrock for the hair follicle, and if it is not in good condition, the chances of you experiencing problems with hair growth and health increase significantly. In fact, research has proven that a flaky, itchy scalp can cause and/or worsen hair loss in certain individuals. Balancing your scalp with Phytopolléine is crucial before starting any thinning treatment or just to keep the scalp in a healthy state.
