Did you know the scalp contains 20 blood vessels, 650 sweat glands and 1,000 nerve endings? The scalp controls oil production and hair growth and therefore must be cared for properly. When a client is experiencing hair loss or dandruff, the scalp is usually the area that needs attention. Thyroid problems can also be at the helm of hair loss while a healthy diet and proper exfoliation can aid in growth. Being conscious of what we put on our scalp and through our hair can aid in a healthy scalp and happy strands.
