Trichologist & Scalp Expert, Stephanie Sey is no mind reader, but she does know a thing or two about the top of your head. Like why you itch and flake, and why your strands break.
Too much teasing, not enough scalp pleasing, babe.
To put it simply, your roots need a rude (and nude) awakening.
Stephanie Sey is here to give us just that. She let me pick her brains on the best ways to keep your scalp squeaky clean and your roots ready for action.
Let’s start at the top. Why scalp health, babe?
“Until recently, most of the focus has just been on the quality of the hair and how it looks. The most interesting thing is that great hair, which is strong and healthy, starts deep within the scalp. Hair being formed needs a great environment to grow from, hence, scalp health.”
So let’s get into the nitty gritty. How does scalp exfoliation help?
“It can help with removing the stubborn build up, dead skin cells and getting rid of unsightly flakes.”
And what’s the best way to exfoliate?
“It’s good to use tools and products especially made for exfoliating. The Tangle Teezer Scalp Exfoliator & Massager and the frank body Exfoliating Scalp Serum are an awesome duo to do this with.”
Now babes know the why. Can you tell babes about the when?
“It’s great to exfoliate your scalp when you get that feeling of build up or your scalp has been itching and really flaky. Or even just because you feel like it. I like the Tangle Teezer Scalp Exfoliator & Massager because it has a dual purpose. It can be used wet and dry.
Wet: it can be used in the shower to exfoliate whilst washing your hair.
Dry: you can use it as a scalp massage tool to relieve tension and increase blood flow.”
Does it work on all hair types?
What products would you recommend to keep scalps clean and crowns happy?
“The frank body Scalp Serum is fab because it contains ingredients like Lactic Acid, which provides hydration while exfoliating. And Hydrolyzed Soy Protein which helps strengthen hair. The main benefit is that it gently dissolves product build up and flakes on your scalp leaving you with a refreshed scalp.”
Lastly, any final words for a babes best hair yet?
“Remember, a healthy scalp creates a great environment for the hair to thrive.”
We’ll cheer to that, Steph.
