#1: Scalp Treatment
Scalp treatments target the root of the problem (literally) as they remove debris, dead skin cells and excess oil from the scalp. Look out for products with salicylic acid, which helps to exfoliate and result in healthy hair follicles.
Try: Sachajuan Scalp Treatment, $62, from Sephora.
#3: Scalp Massage
To really cleanse your scalp thoroughly, step up your shampooing with a scalp massager. Using a brush like this helps to improve blood circulation and lifts away debris and dead skin cells.
Try: Waterproof electric scalp massager, $7.60, from www.lazada.sg.
After shampooing comes conditioning. Try to leave the conditioner on your hair for at least a few minutes (you can wash your face and body in the meantime) and avoid applying conditioner on your scalp.
Try: Banana Conditioner, $16.90, from The Body Shop.
#5: Hair Mask
Once or twice a week, follow or replace the conditioning step with a hair mask to further hydrate and moisturise your locks.
Try: Silk Scarf Hair Moist Pack, $16.90, from Etude House.
#6: Vinegar Rinse
Styling products often cause our hair and scalp’s acidity level to decrease (and alkalinity to increase), causing dandruff or dry and itchy scalps. A vinegar rinse helps to bring the acidity level back to normal, sealing and repairing the hair cuticles.
Try: Yves Rocher Rinsing Vinegar, $18, from Sephora.
#8: Hair Serum
We have shown our scalp quite a lot of TLC, and now it’s time to focus on our hair. A hair serum helps to nourish and protect your tresses and tame flyaways.
Try: David Mallett Hair Serum, US$52 (S$72), from www.net-a-porter.com.
#9: Hair Mist
A hair mist helps to lock in moisture and gives your mane some sleek shine.
Try: My Hair Moisturizing Hair Mist, $19, from Innisfree.
