Here’s everything you need to know about how to care for your scalp like an expert.

Keep It Clean

Regularly cleanse your scalp with a gentle shampoo like the JSHealth Purifying Vitamin Shampoo, removing buildup, excess oil and dirt. Aim to wash your hair 2-3 times a week. 

Exfoliate: Just like your skin, your scalp can benefit from exfoliation to remove dead skin cells and stimulate circulation. Use a gentle scalp scrub or brush to exfoliate your scalp once a week. 


Hydrate your scalp and hair with leave-in treatments or oils to prevent dryness, itchiness and flakiness.

Sun Protection

 Your scalp is just as susceptible to UV damage as the skin on your face. Be sure to wear a hat or UV protection hair products when spending a day out in the sun. 


Regular scalp massages (even better with hair oils or serums!) nourish your hair follicles and promote healthy growth.

Be Gentle

Opt for heat-free styling methods. Be mindful of what you consume and opt for a balanced diet rich in vitamins and minerals, such as omega-3 fatty acids and biotin, to help promote healthy hair growth and prevent any scalp issues. 

The goal is to create a sustainable scalp care routine that works for you. Scalp care is skincare at its core. With the right approach, patience and kindness, your hair will thank you for it!
