What better time to begin detoxing than the start of a new year? You and your scalp have been through a lot in 2017, so self-care is a good way to ring in the new year.

Your scalp is one of the thickest layers of skin on your body. It is made up of five layers and is unique in comparison to the rest of your skin because it contains more blood vessels and sebaceous glands. These glands produce oil (sebum) which is a good thing. It gives your hair softness and keeps your scalp moisturized. But only if it’s produced in the right quantities. An excess of sebum production can clog your scalps pores. The pores on your scalp are some of the widest throughout your body, so the buildup they can acquire is greater. This can clog your hair follicles which can lead to dandruff. A dry scalp doesn’t necessarily mean that your body isn’t producing enough oils, it can also mean that bacteria is getting trapped within the oil and causes your skin to itch and swell. Eventually, they will begin to detach from your scalp. To abate the situation, your body will replenish the dead or dying skin cells, making it even harder for your scalp to breathe since the dead skin cells lay atop the newer ones.

This is why it’s important to detox your scalp. For all the hormonal and seasonal changes are scalp is put through, it could use a hand to balance out the oil production. You don’t want too much or too little oil.

Phytopolléine is our all time favorite product. It’s always a good addition to anyone’s hair care routine. You can apply as many serums, conditioners, oils, masks, or creams onto your hair but that won’t change the texture of your scalp. A healthy scalp is the gateway to healthy hair. Treating your scalp before treating your hair leaves you with infinitely fewer concerns. It’s a long-term solution to your concerns. Phytopolléine is a blend of botanical oil extracts that work to stimulate the blood cells below your scalp’s skin and encourage hair growth. Microcirculation is beneficial because it gives your scalp a constant source of oxygen and improves the relation between each skin cell and blood vessel. It helps regenerate healthy tissue and reduces swelling. So whatever inflammations or itchiness you might have are reduced.
