Treatment for dry scalp
Each strand of healthy hair grows for approximately two to five years depending on gender and genetic predisposition. It undergoes a transition period for approximately three months before shedding. This cycle repeats with new hair formed within the hair follicle.
however, it can be disrupted due to an over-greasy scalp or a dry scalp, causing uncontrolled hair fall.
Uncontrolled hair fall due to dry scalp occurs when there are more hair falling than hair growing, which could range from 30 to 100 strands of hair shedding daily, depending on hair fall stage and type.
Dry scalp is defined by the insufficient production of sebum, a type of oil produced by the sebaceous glands to seal hair cuticles, hold in moisture, protect hair and scalp from harmful UV rays, bacterial and yeast infections.
The lack of activity of these glands can cause problems such as flaky scalp accompanied by dandruff, frizzy hair, congested follicles and will eventually lead to uncontrolled hair fall.
When the scalp lacks moisture, it fails to seal in moisture in the scalp to maintain growth of healthy, lustrous hair. It also causes the accumulation of dead skin cells on the scalp, which may cluster and clog hair follicles, preventing them from “breathing” and causing dry flakes. Dry scalp would also lead to dry, frizzy hair with split ends.
according to the survey performed by 101 hair care, many clients did not realise how dry their scalp was and how this condition affected their hair quality.
For dry scalp and hair fall problems, 101 hair care uses the revolutionary and customised advanced Follicle Technology (aFT) treatment to target the follicles and roots to reveal healthy hair. The first and most cru- cial step in aFT is Deep cleansing as it deep cleanses hair follicles from dead skin cells and excessive sebum while regulating it and reducing scalp sensitivity.
The next step is Prevention, which stops hair roots from entering the “resting stage” prematurely. It also balances sebum secretion and ensures effective absorption of herbal essences to supply nutrients to the hair root.
Growth Stimulation comes after Prevention to enhance microcirculation to scalp and ensure nutrient and oxygen delivery to follicles to enhance hair growth and hair texture. Less hair fall is noticed with every hair wash and new baby hairs can be seen and as a result, hair increases in density.
The final stage to aFT treatment is Strengthening, which is required as it strengthens the hair roots of new and existing hair. This results in healthier, thicker and stronger hair.
aFT treatment is also paired with acupunctural Point Massage technique to enhance the treatment efficacy as well as reducing clogged follicles, improves blood circulation to scalp and enhance the absorption of herbal essences.
