Remove build up, unclog pores and get rid of dead skin.
Summer is upon us and one way to ensure your hair is growing long, strong and healthy is to do a scalp detox treatment. Our scalp is a living, breathing organ and so sometimes we focus on the hair itself rather than the location it grows from. Have you ever had dry itchy scalp? Or your hair feels dirty at the base even after you wash it? This is our scalp saying, “I’m full of dirt and cannot breathe!”
Our pores become clogged after we use products that accumulate on top of dead skin cells. If we don’t do a detox our hair will become dull, greasy and will slow the hair growth. Shampooing alone will not cleanse the scalp deep enough to rid the skin of this type of build up to the hair. A great solution is a detoxifying process that can be done once a month.
Doing a scalp detoxification will include massaging in the correct products to exfoliate the scalp. This will unclog your pores of dead skin and also will remove toxins from the hair follicles.
Pureology Serious Colour Care has a great deep cleansing shampoo called Purify. This is a great option for anyone looking for natural ingredients that will absorb oils, grease and product residue from the hair.
The benefits include a rich lather and easy rinsing with extra gentle cleansers that will not strip your haircolour. The formula is luxuriously concentrated that will remove all build-up including, chlorine, hard water minerals, and styling residue. It also detoxifies using antibacterial ingredients. Sulfate free, salt free, colour preserving formula derived from coconut, corn and sugar.
The actual blend of purifying ingredients inside Purify Shampoo is Witch Hazel, Baking Soda and Tea Tree Oil.
How to detox your scalp:
Step 1: Wet hair and apply a quarter size amount of Purify to hair focusing on the scalp.
Step 2: Lather and wait 2 minutes before rinsing. If hair does not lather, it is really dirty! Rinse and repeat!
Step 3: Rinse thoroughly then apply a regular shampoo such as Hydrate to return some of the moisture back into the hair. Rinse and follow up with Conditioner such as Hydrate Condition.
Step 4 (if necessary): To remove extreme build up or ‘swimmers green’ shampoo hair again but don’t rinse. Place a cap over hair and place under a dryer for 20 minutes, then rinse.
By giving your guests a scalp detoxifying treatment before their color service it will actually prep the hair to accept the color more efficiently and penetrate further increasing longevity. See these before and after scalp detox and color services photos.
Once you are complete you will be able to feel your scalp ‘breathe’ and will have noticeable shape and movement especially at the base. You may also notice your hair colour looking vibrant and refreshed! By adding this in to your month routine you will have happy hair days ahead!
