Healthy scalp equals healthy hair and it's unreasonable to expect a luscious glossy mane if your scalp is damaged, dehydrated, flaky, congested or overtly oily. Yup that's exactly what I had unreasonably been expecting since quite a while. Yes I agree hair is dead protein and you cannot improve it's condition on it's own but it's also true that scalp is an extension of the skin on your face and it deserves more TLC that what we already give it.
Comes in the winner duo of LA Science Follicle Stimulating Shampoo and Anti Hair Loss Serum. Recently I noticed how my anti-dandruff shampoo wasn't working wonders and my flaky scalp made an appearance more often than before. I'm not sure what this is due to, perhaps the overheated houses due to the recent snow here? I'm not sure so I decided to take control of the situation of my scalp finally, however boring of an topic it is and regularly use these two products.
I'll leave out the scientific blurb as you can read that on their website but what they are meant to do in combination is get rid of product build-up, provide a deep cleanse around the hair follicle area, control sebum production, stimulate hair growth by de-congesting the scalp and getting rid of the flaky, scaly texture of the skin there and so on. If the roots of the hair are healthy, it is quite obvious that they will not fall unnecessarily and will become stronger from the roots eventually.
Just imagine the excess sebum, flaky scalp and product build up disrupting the hair growth from the roots causing breakage whilst us religiously oiling the ends of our hair with Moroccan oil. Complete waste! Treat the root cause first and then of course lust after the glossy mane.
It's only been a few weeks since I have been using it but I can notice a difference in the overall 'health' of the scalp already. The serum comes with a dropper and is meant to be applied directly to the scalp. Make someone else do this for you if possible to treat problem areas. It feels superbly cooling and effective!
The shampoo on the other hand is meant to promote blood flow and stimulate hair growth which I am sure needs at least a month to show a difference however I have to say the shampoo is hydrating on its own unlike other 'medical' shampoos and works both as a shampoo and conditioner apparently. I am already seeing signs of thicker, glossier hair in general so just wanted to give you a heads up if you suffer from extreme dandruff, stunned hair growth or hair loss, to try this out.
