Do you experience scalp dryness? Itching? Sensitive scalp? Flakes, dandruff or even scalp redness & inflammation? This natural hair care brand may just be the answer you’re looking for.
Firstly, it is important to note that all of these symptoms are extremely common, especially in the colder months. Secondly, it is most likely that you will have been through a myriad of different products including tar-based dandruff shampoos, scalp scrubs and possibly even medicated sensitive scalp products, only to find that you experience a short term reduction in the symptoms followed by their inevitable return and sometimes even worse than before. The good news is that the natural hair care products from the Nourished x Romy Boomsma Collection might just be the solution you are looking for.
The current thinking in skin and hair care is moving away from treating these symptoms and instead, moving towards treating the CAUSE of the symptoms. For the larger part, the cause of many of these symptoms is an impaired epithermal barrier or skin barrier as it is otherwise known. The skin barrier is the most superficial layer of skin, including the skin on our scalp and is made up of dead skin cells, fatty acids and cholesterol. This micro-thin layer plays a mighty important role in not only skin health, but overall health & wellbeing.
The skin barrier:
+ Protects your internal body against the external elements including sun, wind and temperatures.
+ Acts as a defence against microbes, bacteria & pathogens
+ Maintains your skin’s water and hydration state
+ Stimulates essential immune responses
+ Assists with body temperature regulation
This very important skin layer can be easily disturbed by both internal and external factors and often results in disruption to many of our body's health processes and skin conditions. This will often result in a dry, itchy, flaky and/or sensitive scalp.
One of the important ways to heal an impaired scalp skin barrier is to switch to natural hair care products that are free from silicones, perfume/parfum and harsh alcohols. Eliminating chemical stressors and irritants from the skin barrier will give it the opportunity to calm and start the healing process.
