How much you Know about the condition of your scalp and hair? You can find out more through a scalp analysis by a trained technician or trichologist, who will help you pinpoint the treatments and products that will yield healthier, problem-free lock.
First, a special magnifying camera reveals not only what genetics gave you dryness, oiliness, dandruff, psoriasis, thinning hair but also the effects of chemical processing and your daily hair care routine. Even something as simple as product buildup can be a big problem, according to Ronald Williams of Phyto Universe in Manhattan.
Then, armed with this detailed information, the technician can design a customized treatment such as applying essential oils to moisturize a parched scalp and to use at home.
Valerie Marie Kemp, of J.F Lazartigue Hair Analysis Center in Manhattan, notes that it’s important to treat both your scalp and hair. “Of you have very fine hair and are using a volume shampoo all week, you are going to aggravate the oil glands in your scalp. “She Says. “You need to alternate with another shampoo to see better results”.
Hair and scalp analysts are usually free when getting a hair consultation or salon treatment; just ask your salon if it offers them.
