Dove Scalp protection for naturally textured hair

The importance of scalp protection for naturally textured hair

Your hair gets a lot of care and attention, and rightfully so – but what about your scalp? Looking after your scalp is an essential part of caring for hair, because a happy head of hair starts at the root.

The science behind your scalp health

You might think the skin on your scalp is different from the skin on the rest of your body, but they’re actually very similar. Your scalp is a bit thicker (it’s made up of five different layers of tissue while the rest of our skin has three), it has more oil glands, and lots of hair follicles. But since your scalp is responsible for growing the crown that’s beautifully unique to you, it’s important to look after it with the same care. 


Like the rest of your skin, your scalp acts as a natural moisture barrier which stops essential moisture from escaping. When this barrier is damaged, it can lead to an unhealthy scalp, causing irritation, itchiness, dryness, and dandruff. So, if you want to reach your hair goals, and highlight the beauty of your natural texture, scalp protection will be a key part of your journey. 


The steps to follow

Now for the all important topic: how to take care of scalp skin. The general rules of skin care also apply to scalp care, so you’re probably familiar with the all important steps. Consistently removing debris, dirt, and oil on your scalp is essential, as is hydrating it. And just like your skin routine, your scalp care routine should be tailored to the condition of your scalp. So if yours tends to be dry, avoid overstripping it with harsh scrubs, and find an effective scalp moisturizer. Or if it’s oily, try not to overload it with thick textures
