Healthy hair begins with the scalp. Unfortunately, when it comes to our health and beauty routines, caring for our scalps too often falls to the last line of the to-do list. In reality, scalp health is actually just as important as skincare, if not more important, when it comes to hair care. Without a healthy scalp, there is truly no such thing as healthy hair.
Think of it this way: a healthy tree cannot grow without healthy roots. The scalp is filled with thousands of follicles and thousands of cells that are constantly shedding and reproducing–this is what causes our hair to grow. Our scalps also produce a naturally occurring oil called sebum, which nourishes and protects the scalp. However, too much sebum build-up and dead skin cells can clog hair follicles and inhibit hair growth. Because of this, regular cleaning and exfoliating of your scalp is essential.
That being said, too much cleansing and exfoliating or using harsh products is not good either. Sebum is responsible for keeping our scalps moisturized. Without it, we are more prone to infection, dandruff, eczema, other uncomfortable skin conditions, and overall dryness–which can cause brittle hair and impact hair growth in the long run.
At INSIGHT, we understand just how important it is to nurture our scalps. Here are two of our hair care lines, specially formulated to nourish the scalp, that can help you step up your scalp care routine.
Enriched with organic pumpkin and organic quince extract, our Sensitive line is perfect for sensitive skin. Although targeted specifically towards those that experience irritation and inflammation of the scalp, the products in our Sensitive line are a great addition for anyone looking for gentle, scalp-healthy products.
Dermatologically tested on sensitive skin; the Sensitive Skin Shampoo is the ideal cleanser for regular use. This incredibly gentle product is suitable for the entire family, including children, and is formulated to nourish and protect by respecting the natural production of moisturizing sebum.
The counterpart to the Sensitive Skin Shampoo, this equally gentle conditioner boosts moisture to keep hair soft, healthy, and bright. With its soothing formula, the Sensitive Skin Conditioner allows for a delicate detangling process.
When not using the Sensitive Skin Conditioner in conjunction with the Sensitive Skin Shampoo, why not go above and beyond with our Sensitive Skin Hair Mask? Perfect for occasional use, just about once a week, the Sensitive Skin Hair Mask restores your hair’s natural beauty–softening, moisturizing, and adding body and shine. Once again gentle and aid in the detangling process, this hair mask can be distributed evenly to wet hair, left in for up to ten minutes, and rinsed out to leave you with healthy, luscious locks.
While our Sensitive line is perfect for promoting a healthy scalp and preventing dryness and damage, that isn’t all there is when it comes to scalp care. Our Soothing line is ideal for those that have already been impacted by irritation, eczema, UV damage, or any of the other issues our scalps may experience.
With organic Indian fig, mallow, and aloe extracts, this highly skin-friendly cleansing shampoo is dermatologically tested to soothe irritated skin. Formulated with moisturizing and calming properties, our Dermo-Calming Shampoo intensively rebalances your scalp’s microbiome and leaves hair feeling silky and soft.
Searching for a product that can be used outside of your shower routine? Our Comfort Cream is a leave-in product that aids in mending scalp irritation after the shampoo and conditioning process. A calming cream created to rebalance the epidermal function of your scalp and leave you with a fresh, soothing sensation, simply massage the Comfort Cream to reddened areas of your scalp after your shower or even on dry hair.
