2. Make Sure Hair isn’t Washed Too Frequently
If it’s not dandruff, but a truly dry scalp your client is dealing with, ask them how frequently they’re washing their hair. Those with an irritated scalp who are lathering up daily, or every other day, should try waiting at least one more day between each shampoo. Simply adjusting their hair wash schedule could fix dryness in clients with a sensitive scalp, as it means they’re not constantly removing their hair’s natural oils. Ask them to try it and see if it helps.
3. Turn Down the Tap Temperature
Water that’s too hot can cause further irritation to a dry, flaky scalp, so wash your client’s hair with lukewarm water in the salon – and remind them to do the same at home. That doesn’t mean they should use cold water, as some warmth is needed to get their hair truly clean. But, in order to avoid stripping away essential oils, lukewarm is always the way to go.
4. Wash Hair with a Nourishing Shampoo
Another wise switch for hair wash day: using a soothing shampoo. For very dry, irritated scalps, INVIGO Senso Calm Sensitive Shampoo offers gentle yet effective cleansing. The fragrance-free formula is infused with allantoin, an emollient that nourishes and calms the skin, so your client can wash their sensitive scalp without stripping away moisture.
If the hair is also dry, Ultimate Repair Shampoo is their perfect pick, with a de-stressing blend that’s kind to hair and dermatologically tested to be gentle on skin. It features a skincare-inspired blend of AHA and Omega-9, alongside a luxurious lather that bestows locks with instant deep nourishment and vitality.
