What affects the Condition of the Scalp?
For years many of us may have heard the importance of hair health, yet the scalp is often over-looked as an important area of the body that needs it’s fair share of attention too. While the scalp is a pretty ‘tough’ structure, and can take a lot of wear and tear (when brushing or tugging hair for example), the scalp can also become sensitive, flaky (Dandruff) or too oily (oily scalp) often leading to scalp acne.
Help for Scalp Conditions
Many herbal and homeopathic remedies have been formulated with specific ingredients to help soothe and naturally hydrate the scalp. Chamomile Essential Oil has been used for centuries to strengthen the capillaries that supply blood to the scalp and hair follicles and improve elasticity, while Rosemary Essential Oil has excellent astringent properties, also encouraging hair growth.
Ginkgo biloba helps to restore the functioning of the circulatory system and improves blood flow to the brain and all parts of the body. Equisetum arvense is rich in minerals, especially silica, which is an important part of all connective tissues in the body, as well as hair and nails.
