To aid your clients dealing with scalp inflammation, here are a few valuable tips you can employ.

 

Advising on how often to wash their scalp
Overwashing can strip your client’s sensitive scalp of its natural oils, making it more prone to irritation and inflammation. Aim to wash your client’s hair no more than 2-3 times per week.

Using a moisturizing scalp restorer (scalp spray)
This can help to hydrate your client’s scalp and reduce redness and inflammation.

Advising your client to avoid scratching their scalp
It is important to refrain from scratching the scalp. Although some clients may desire a scalp scratch during shampooing to alleviate itchiness, it can exacerbate inflammation and irritate the scalp. This presents an opportune moment to impart accurate scalp care knowledge to your clients.

 

Recommending scalp care with plant-based ingredients
While medicated products may provide temporary relief, they often come with side effects. In contrast, long-term use of natural ingredients can be more suitable for sensitive scalps. Such as. Aloe vera, witch hazel, and tea tree oil are all examples of natural ingredients that can help to soothe and calm the scalp.

 

Recommending gentle shampoos and conditioners
Avoid harsh shampoos and conditioners that contain SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate), SLES (Sodium Laureth Sulfate), or parabens. These chemicals can strip your client’s scalp of its natural oils and make it more prone to irritation. Choosing a shampoo with amino acid-based and pH level 5.5 can maintain the scalp’s pH level without over-cleansing it.

 

Advising your client to eat a healthy diet
Eating a healthy diet that is rich in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains can help to reduce inflammation throughout the body, including the scalp.

 

Advising on stress management
Stress can trigger inflammation, so it is important to find healthy ways to manage stress. This may include exercise, yoga, or meditation.

 

Advising your client to get enough sleep
When you are well-rested, your body is better able to fight off infection and heal itself.
