How To Treat Your Scalp Like The Skin On Your Face

How To Treat Your Scalp Like The Skin On Your Face

My salon clients often ask me what is the best way to treat your scalp, i.e. washing, conditioning, and leave-in products.  My best answer is to treat your scalp like the skin on your face!  If your scalp is oily, normal, or dry, most often your facial skin is too, therefore, washing your hair will vary based on sebum production.  If your scalp is dry, it is important to moisturize your scalp and this is especially important for curly hair types.  How often you wash your hair is important since an oily prone scalp can lead to oily skin and breakouts. 

Most of us do not realize that what we use on our hair affects our face and vice versa.  I started a collaboration between CTRL Cosmetics , a United States made skincare line, and Noelle Salon in an effort to keep hair and skin healthy!  When seeking a brand of skincare, it was paramount to search for one with natural ingredients, no metals, with proven results.  Ctrl is a boutique brand with not only effective skincare but excellent customer service.  Its founders Nina and Alan Steinberg spent years testing products that would "control" Nina's skincare issues, and they put the same passion into their products as I have done with our Veila Hair Extension brand.  

I often use the Rejuvenation Facial Polish on the scalp of my clients with hair loss during their monthly maintenance appointments.  After I carefully remove their hair system, I use a small amount of the product before shampooing to remove oily patches.  There are no harsh ingredients and the scrub is exhilarating. 

One of my favorite products is their "liquid gold" Replenish Beautifying Oil, this all-natural oil can be used on the ends of both natural hair, hair extensions and of course the face.  Additionally, it is a soothing oil for those with a dry and itchy scalp.  Paradise Oil works as an amazing hair leave-in product and does not contain silicones like other hair leave-in products.  Their products are hypoallergenic and vegan. DISCLAIMER:  It is not recommended to use hair extension attachment or the scalp of those wearing hair extensions.  

The CTRL line offers a no-nonsense approach with just the right amount of products suitable for your skincare regime.  Below is a breakdown of each product, its use, and its benefits.
