The Ultimate Scalp Reset

It’s safe to say, here at Epic Hair Designs, we are more than equipped to take care of your strands. But without a balanced scalp, you’re missing the foundations for healthy and strong hair growth.  

Like the skin on your face and body, maintaining a healthy scalp is important too. From hydration and exfoliation to cleansing and serums, the basics of scalp care are all about keeping it clean and conditioned. To help you get started, we’ve put together four tips for common scalp conditions.  

1. KMS HeadRemedy Anti-Dandruff Shampoo

There are endless hair products available on the market but not all of them are great for your scalp. In fact, some of them can do more damage than good. High-quality shampoo that restores and balances your scalp may cost a little more, but the results are definitely worth the extra few bucks. 

The HeadReady Anti-Dandruff Shampoo by KMS is the perfect product to give your scalp a deep cleanse without drying it out. Ideal for those with persistent dandruff, this shampoo helps permanently rid the scalp of dandruff by gently lifting and sweeping away dead skin and oil. You’ll step out of the shower with a calmer, healthier scalp.  

2. Goldwell Dualsenses Scalp Sensitive Soothing Lotion

Thirsty scalp cramping your style? A dry scalp is a pretty clear indication that there’s a lack of hydration. And an itchy, irritated and flaky scalp can be a nightmare to deal with. Dry skin could occur after something as simple as shampooing too frequently. Or you could even experience dryness and irritation from hair dye and build up from products like dry shampoo. With so many different causes from seemingly harmless everyday activities, there’s a good chance you’ll need a soothing lotion for your scalp. 

The Dualsenses Scalp Sensitive Soothing Lotion by Goldwell is designed for sensitive scalps and thinning hair. This soothing lotion is blended with Lime-Tree blossom extract to instantly sooth, condition, and relieve tension. The lightweight formula is free of fragrances and is non-irritating, making it the perfect solution for coloured hair! 

3. Oribe Serene Scalp Exfoliating Scrub

Although the body naturally replaces dead skin cells with new skin cells, sometimes it can use a little help in the form of exfoliation. Our Epic stylists maintain that regular scalp exfoliation is the key to healthier, shinier hair from the roots to the tips.  

Enter Oribe’s Scalp Exfoliating Scrub: dense, grainy and deliciously scented. With this scrub you can reveal the secret to a healthy scalp and the key to true shower nirvana. This powerful scrub gently polishes scalp with exfoliating beads to remove oil, dirt and product buildup while a blend of fruit extracts and alpha hydroxy acids extracts and cleanses the pores to nourish your hair. Your scalp will be left primed and deeply purified. 

4. Kerastase Specifique Cure Anti-Chute Scalp Concentrate

If scalp itchiness and flakiness is really getting you down and affecting your day-to-day life, you may want to treat yourself to a scalp treatment. You can, of course, do this at home with a scalp concentrate, but be careful to choose the right treatment for your hair type. If in doubt, ask your Epic stylist for recommendations. 

We absolutely LOVE the Kerastase Specifique Cure Anti-Chute Scalp Concentrate because it soothes, heals, and nourishes the scalp with Keratin and clinical-grade ingredients. We recommend you use this 6-week treatment nightly to maintain a balanced scalp – counteracting hair loss and preserving hair density. You’ll find that your scalp irritation is reduced, and hair feels beautifully well-nourished again. Apply 2-3 drops directly to your scalp in three different sections: down the center and along both sides of the center. Massage throughout the scalp and hair – no need to rinse!
