Scalp issues, dandruff and hair loss can become pesky problems that just won’t go away. If these problems are not addressed and treated, they can lead to worsening scalp and hair conditions like hair thinning over time.
Generally, healthy hair starts with a healthy scalp — think of your scalp as a foundation from which your hair grows. If your scalp is in poor condition, you are setting yourself up for hair loss, as well as other discomforts like itching and flaking from dandruff. On the other hand, a healthy scalp is the first step to strong, well-maintained hair follicles that lead to lustrous locks.
Typically when we are facing scalp or hair issues, we turn to hair care products to solve the problem. While these products may work at times, results are not always guaranteed. Let’s review with Yun Nam Hair Care experts why the products you use for scalp care are not treating the issues you’re facing:
1. You’re using too many products
When we face a scalp or hair problem, our first instinct is to find the right products to treat the root cause. The right, targeted, quality products can help resolve problems. However, an overly-enthusiastic approach of using a multitude of products all at once can actually be detrimental instead of beneficial.
Yun Nam Hair Care experts have reviewed numerous client profiles and have found that many resorted to using various products to solve their scalp or hair woes before their journey with Yun Nam. This actually led to a dry, itchy, flaky and irritated scalp and excessive hair loss beyond the usual daily shedding. Many hair products, including condition-specific shampoos, conditioners and treatments, contain allergens and irritants that can cause these symptoms if used too frequently or left on the scalp for too long.
The issue here is product buildup as opposed to specific hair or scalp issues like dandruff and hair loss. Remedy this by going for a review with a hair specialist like Yun Nam Hair Care to understand the health of your scalp and hair, as well as get recommendations such as their innovative botanical-based products to keep your hair and scalp nourished.
2. You may not be identifying the scalp or hair issue correctly
Often, when we see signs of skin flakes in your hair or on your shoulders, we think we have dandruff. While dandruff is a common condition that causes the skin on your scalp to flake, you may also be experiencing something different altogether. Conditions such as scalp buildup, psoriasis and eczema all have similar symptoms but different causes that require treatments other than dandruff products to solve.
You can visit a hair care expert like Yun Nam Hair Care to review and diagnose the scalp or hair condition you’re facing correctly in order to get the proper treatment.
3. You’re over-cleaning your hair
Another hair care instinct many of us are guilty of is cleaning our hair and scalp too much when we notice issues like dandruff or hair loss from oily scalp. According to research reviews by Yun Nam Hair Care, squeaky clean is not always a good thing. You do not need to shampoo your hair daily, and even condition-specific shampoos do not actually help to solve your scalp and hair concerns if overused.
Shampoos remove excess oils and dirt from the scalp and hair to keep it clean. When you shampoo your hair daily, it also gets rid of the natural moisture and protection of sebum, resulting in a flaky, dry scalp. It can also cause brittle hair that is likely to break. These can come across as dandruff and hair loss.
Avoid exacerbating these issues with too-frequent hair washes. Even with an oily scalp or in a hot, humid climate like Singapore, it is best to reduce hair washing frequency to at most once a day You can also consider improving your scalp and hair health with the right treatments, such as Yun Nam’s Signature FASTGro™, so that you do not have to resort to excessive hair washing as a solution.
Take care to identify and prevent scalp and hair issues with early detection and tackle them with proper treatment and products. You can create the perfect foundation for luscious hair growth with a healthy scalp.
