How To Get a Healthy Scalp

1. If you have dandruff, which is the result or skin cells turning over too quickly--not dry skin, or a flaky, itchy scalp, use a dandruff shampoo containing pyrithionze zinc.

2. Eat healthy and consume foods with vitamins, such as carrots or sweet potatoes, and healthy fats, such sardines or avocado.

3. If you can eat foods containing certain nutrients--great. If not, take a multi-vitamin or specific supplements to promote a healthy scalp. Here are some of the vitamins and their benefits: Vitamin A (produces healthy scalp sebum), Vitamin C (keeps skin and hair healthy), Vitamin B3/Niacin and Vitamin E (promotes scalp circulation), Vitamin B5/Pantothenic Acid, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12 and Biotin (prevents hair loss).

4. Brush or comb the scalp gently, once daily, to stimulate scalp circulation and redistribute oils.

5. If you have a dry scalp, see if you can wash every other day instead of daily. This can prevent too much stripping of healthy scalp oils. If your hair gets greasy at the roots in-between washings, wear a colorful scarf. Make a fashion statement.

6. Constant blow drying, use of curling irons and harsh chemicals can make your hair dull and lifeless. Healthy and shiny hair begins with healthy scalp

7. You can get Exta virgin coconut oil from any drug store OR you can get any type of cocnout oil from the Grocery aisle.
