Most often than not, you’re more focused on your hair strands than your scalp. This is because you want to look like you just came out of the salon all the time. To help you achieve the perfect blowout or extend your curls, you apply more products or use hot tools. These result to heaps of hair problems no one wants. To help you with those, here are some tips that may come in handy.
1. You Have Chronically Oily Roots
The strands of your hair feel clumped with each other, it feels heavy, when you look at the mirror your locks are visually shiny and that’s even when you’ve just washed yesterday. Those who struggle with oily roots feels compelled to wash their hair often to deal with the grease. The problems with this is that washing too often actually makes it more oily because you wind up stripping the oils that form a protective barrier on your scalp, your sebaceous gland then reacts by overproducing oil to compensate for the dryness.
Detox your strands. Don’t touch your shampoo for a week and do a different cleansing routine.
First Day— exfoliate your scalp using with baking soda to loosen up dirt and buildup product.
Second Day—let your scalp rest and don’t apply any product on your hair.
Third Day—wash your hair with water only and condition your entire head. This helps halt your scalps oil production because the conditioner makes you sebaceous gland think there’s still enough oil.
Fourth Day—do what you did on the first day.
Fifth Day—let your scalp rest again
Sixth Day—repeat third-day procedure.
Seventh Day—exfoliate again.
After this week-long detox, you can go back to using your regular shampoo. But stick to washing just every other day to avoid developing oily scalp again.
2. You See Clumps Of Hair Fall After Brushing Or Showering
It’s normal to shed about 100 strands of hair every day. But if you have noticeable hair loss every time you shower or brush that may be another story. There are a lot of possible reasons why you’re shedding way too much which you shouldn’t ignore because they could lead to baldness if left untreated.

Having a professional examine you may help diagnose underlying causes of your hair fall so that you can address it accordingly.
Take A Look At Your Lifestyle
You could be iron-deficient due to poor nutrition or under a lot of stress from work or school. Paying attention to what you eat or the state of your body physically, mentally, and emotionally can really make a difference.
Change Your Hair Habits
You may want to go easy with heat styling or hair dyeing because both of these are destroying the strength of each individual hair.
3. You Have Dull And Lifeless Hair
Even if you’ve cut back on washing your hair just every other day, you can still encounter problems if you’re not doing it properly. Your hair may lose its luster and become flat with no volume or movement at all.
Concentrate Your Shampoo On Your Scalp
You only have to shampoo your scalp. The shampoo that will run through your strands when you rinse is enough to clean the mid-shaft and end without drying them out too much.
Before you apply conditioner on your hair, make sure that the water runs clear when your rinse. This indicates that you’ve rinse your hair from the shampoo thoroughly.
Brush Only When Your Hair Has Completely Dried.
To avoid breakage and hair fall, do not brush your hair when wet. Use a wide-tooth comb to detangle the strands instead.
4. You Get Pimples On Your Scalp
Do you notice a tiny bump on your scalp when massaging the shampoo onto it? Sometimes the bumps feel sore and sometimes you can pluck a whiteheads-like bump? Well, guess what, your scalp is skin too so you’re bound to get blemishes on it when you’re inconsistent with your hair cleansing regimen.
Incorporate An Exfoliating Mask Twice A Week In Your Routine
Those bumps could be from hair products build-up. Shampoo alone won’t be able to get rid of all that since even your shampoo leaves a residue on your hair. This is why you should exfoliate at least twice a week and use clarifying shampoo twice or thrice a month.
Wash Your Hair More Often
If there are people who wash all too often, there are those who hardly ever do. If you’re getting acne like bumps on your scalp, you probably belong to the latter. Instead of once a week, try to increase it to three times a week.
