Why is a healthy scalp important?
One of the most important things 25 years spent in clinical practice and hair research has shown me is that good hair starts with a healthy scalp. Your hair grows from the scalp and depends upon it for its nourishment and well-being, similar to a rich fertile soil needed for plants to grow and flourish. So when the scalp becomes unhealthy it shows in the hair. Dryness, dandruff, irritation, lank greasy hair, spots, inflammation, hair loss and much more can all be symptoms of an unhealthy scalp, but improving the health of your scalp leads to enormous improvements, not just to the scalp itself but also to the quality and condition of your hair and its ability to grow.
