Scalp- stimulating treatment
Healthy hair starts with a healthy scalp, and there is a growing awareness that the skin on our head is an extension of the skin on our face, and should be treated as such. You can now find a range of scalp-specific scrubs and cleansers (because you shampoo your hair, not your scalp), and scalp-balancing salon services, like Aveda’s Pramāsana Treatment. The one-hour, Ayurvedainspired service starts with an exfoliating scalp brush to boost circulation and dislodge build-up. Next comes a cleanser, shampoo and mask, followed by a leave-in concentrate to maintain the scalp’s natural protective barrier and defend against pollution (similar to skincare’s serum step). Expect your scalp to feel slightly tingly – and meticulously cleansed – and your roots airy. We suggest making this an add-on to your next salon blow-dry.
