A healthy scalp is important to the health of all hair types, but especially textured hair. Many curly clients suffer from product buildup on the scalp that causes a suffocation of the hair follicles, which prevents strands from being able to move and breathe, and can ultimately lead to hair loss.

Additionally, if extensions are worn or hair is tightly braided, there can be tension and pulling that over time severely damages the follicle. For these reasons, stylists should offer scalp care in the salon, beginning at the shampoo bowl with a clarifying shampoo and scalp treatment.

Then, they can educate clients on how to maintain scalp health and send them home with products that will prevent dandruff, soothe irritation and create a healthy environment for hair.
