What happens when you focus on your scalp as much as you focus on your skin

Skinification of Hair: Unraveling the Secrets of Scalp Physiology, Challenges, Healthy practices

The health of your hair starts at its roots quite literally! The scalp, often overlooked, plays a pivotal role in maintaining the overall well-being and appearance of your hair The skin on your scalp (Yes! Your scalp is part of your skin too) is very similar to the skin on your face, except, it is a bit thicker, has more oil glands, and contains hundreds of thousands of hair follicles.

Everything from your hair’s curl pattern to its thickness to the rate at which it grows comes from within, starting at the hair follicles on your scalp.
 To understand skinification is to first understand that just like your skin, your scalp needs the same kind of attention and care.

In this blog, we will delve into the aspect of understanding the scalp just the way we understand our skin, common issues that can arise, and essential tips for maintaining a healthy scalp. 

Skinification of hair- healthy scalp care

Scalp Physiology 

The scalp is a unique environment with its own set of physiological processes. Hair follicles embedded in the scalp produce hair through a cycle of growth, rest, and shedding. Rich in blood vessels, it is the lifeline of hair follicles, providing essential nutrients and oxygen. Think of it as this: the better the scalp’s blood circulation, the better the hair strength and length!  

 The sebaceous glands are scattered across the scalp, secrete sebum—a natural oil that moisturizes the hair and prevents it from becoming brittle.

Factors Affecting the Scalp Conditions 

Dry Scalp: Insufficient production of sebum can lead to dry scalp, resulting in itchiness and flakiness. Cold weather, harsh shampoos, or over washing can also contribute to dryness. Dry scalps crave hydration and moisturisation, so opt for nourishing products and avoid harsh ingredients.  

Oily Scalp: On the flip side, overactive sebaceous glands can produce excess sebum, leading to an oily scalp. This can make hair appear greasy and contribute to issues like dandruff. Oily scalps benefit from gentle cleansing to manage excess oil production.  

Dandruff: The presence of white or yellowish flakes on the scalp is often associated with dandruff, a common condition caused by factors like an overgrowth of yeast, dry skin, or sensitivity to hair care products. If you have a sensitive scalp, look for products sans SLS, parabens, sulphates.  

Psoriasis and Eczema: Chronic conditions like psoriasis and eczema can affect the scalp, causing redness, inflammation, and the formation of scales. It is best to get recommendation from your dermatologist for these conditions.  

Tip for Healthy Scalp  
Proper Cleansing: Use a gentle, sulfate-free shampoo to cleanse the scalp without stripping it of natural oils. How often you wash your hair depends on your hair type and lifestyle. But we recommend not more than 2 to 3 washes in a week. 

Balanced Diet: A diet rich in vitamins and minerals, especially those like zinc and biotin, supports overall scalp health. Stay hydrated to maintain moisture balance. 

Avoid Overuse of Styling Products: Excessive use of styling products can lead to product buildup, clogging hair follicles and contributing to scalp issues. Give your scalp a breather. 

Regular Scalp Massages: Stimulate blood flow to the scalp through regular massages. This not only promotes relaxation but also aids in nutrient distribution to the hair follicles. 


Understanding the intricacies of scalp physiology is essential for maintaining vibrant, healthy hair. By identifying and addressing common scalp issues and adopting a proactive approach to scalp care, you pave the way for luscious locks that start at the roots. Skinify your hair, and watch as your hair flourishes in response to the nurturing care it receives from the very foundation – your scalp.
