We see a common theme among our customers at our Montreal beauty salon: people with lackluster hair think a perfect product is a solution for their damaged hair! But what’s often overlooked is the health of the scalp and not the hair. All the fancy shampoos and conditioners will not fix an underlying scalp issue.
You see, your hair is only as healthy as the condition of your scalp. Read that again! But we don’t see the scalp so it goes overlooked until it becomes itchy or inflamed or creates the dreaded flakes.
Gommage for your Scalp
Just like our skin needs routine exfoliation, so does our scalp. And while we massage our scalp with our fingertips during shampooing, it’s not enough to really slough off the dead cells and residue of old products that gather there.
You see, your scalp reproduces a lot of skin cells on a daily basis. That means unless you’re deep-cleaning your scalp occasionally, those dead cells accumulate and create problems (enter dandruff or oily hair).
