Much like the foundation of a house needs to be sturdy and stable, your scalp needs to be healthy in order for your hair to grow.
Keeping A Healthy Scalp For Black Hair Growth
Your scalp is the foundation for your hair follicles. It needs nutrients and healthy blood flow in order to produce healthy hair. It must be kept clean and free of any buildup.
So how do you keep your scalp clean?
- Wash your hair at least once a week to remove any buildup on the scalp. This is especially important if you use hair oils that can buildup and clog your hair follicles.
- Massage your scalp daily to help increase circulation in your scalp.
- Stay away from products that contain petroleum, or other mineral based oils – they clog hair follicles and slow hair growth.
- If you do use hair oils, choose one that is lightweight and contains natural lime oil. Lime oil is a gentle anti-bacterial that keeps your scalp free of any impurities.
