You may (or may not) know that a healthy scalp is key to growing (and maintaining) a healthy mane, no matter what the hair type. Much like the skin on your face, it’s important to give your scalp some TLC to avoid things like clogged pores, dryness, and other irritations.
So, exactly how does having a healthy scalp lead to good looking hair? Each strand of your hair grows from an individual follicle that produces sebum, or oil. While the amount of sebum can vary from person to person, one thing that remains the same among all people is that both the follicle and scalp must remain clean and clear in order for hair to grow. A hair follicle that has too much sebum or is blocked by dead skin (i.e. dandruff) not only effects the growth of the hair, but also might result in hair not growing in at all. Yikes!
