Are you familiar with gardening? No, me too. But from talking to enthusiastic gardeners, I know the importance of putting them in good soil. After all, it is the soil that provides nutrients, oxygen, water and root support to support plant growth. It is the soil that determines whether a plant grows and thrives or withers and dies. Like plants, our hair relies on a healthy foundation for its nutrients, oxygen, water and root support. Its base is our scalp, but we pay much less attention to it than we deserve or need.
This article sheds light on the important but neglected parts of our head. We will look at the rise in scalp serum, a product that can be as important to the scalp as fertilizer gives to the soil.
Well, there is no more gardening reference, I promise!
Most of us have experienced scalp problems at once. These come in a variety of formats. Dandruff, irritation, dryness, oiliness, itching, product accumulation, acne, redness – the list continues. Most of these pains can be dealt with using over-the-counter medications from pharmacists and store hair care shelves. You should seek advice from a dermatologist or doctor only if they are particularly severe.
But even a mild scalp condition can affect your hair. This is because the symptoms you experience indicate that something is happening above and below the surface of the scalp. This indicates that the scalp microflora is imbalanced.
What is the scalp microflora?
A microbial flora is a collection of microorganisms that are known to be grouped in a particular location. The scalp microflora is composed of various bacteria, fungi and viruses. It spreads to the dermis and provides the nutrients needed to maintain healthy hair growth.
Appropriate research on this subject is lacking as academic interest in the scalp microbial flora has only surfaced, but the scalp microbial flora ecosystem regulates and influences some functions of the scalp. There is some evidence to suggest that. When properly balanced, it protects the hair by preventing damage and supporting new growth. It determines if your hair is dull or shining with health and vitality.
In short, your hair depends on this microbial flora to maintain its equilibrium. Imbalances can have a negative effect on hair, such as thinning hair and hair loss. Some forms of alopecia are thought to be due to the off-quilter microbiota of the scalp.
What Causes Microbiota Imbalances?
Threats to the scalp microbiota come from all directions. It can be affected by hormonal changes in your body, your food choices, your lifestyle, and especially the environment in which you live. A study submitted to the European Dermatology and Toxicology Conference in October 2019 found that scalp cells exposed to air pollutants resulting from the use of fossil fuels lose some of the proteins involved in hair growth and retention. I showed that.
Some hair experts recommend that you fight the effects of air pollution on your hair tresses by washing your hair more often. The problem with this approach is that most hair care products are not designed with the scalp microbiota in mind, so the full impact on the scalp microbiota remains unclear. Symptoms such as alopecia may be stimulated or exacerbated by the shampoo and conditioner used daily.
Therefore, you should consider including scalp serum in your hair care routine. Scalp serum can perform a variety of functions, similar to skin care serum. Contains concentrated active ingredients to address specific concerns such as dryness, thinning hair and irritation. Therefore, if your scalp is dry and itchy, consider using a moisturizing serum. These serums usually contain ingredients such as aloe vera, vitamin E, and witch hazel to soothe and hydrate the inflamed scalp.
Serum for people experiencing hair loss or thinning by blocking the enzyme 5-alpha reductase, which is known to release dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT is the cause of hair loss. These serums also nourish the scalp, improve blood flow, and remove debris from the scalp that can inhibit new hair growth.
It’s a fact that is often overlooked, but scalp health is essential for having thick and healthy hair. Chronic scalp infections and conditions are not only unpleasant and unpleasant, but can also interfere with the hair growth cycle and cause hair loss. Hopefully, this article emphasized the importance of caring for your scalp microbiota and the role of serum in helping it.
