Do's & Don'ts of Sensitive Skin Hair Care

We all have some bad hair days. To minimize those types of hair days, look no further than the products you use and how you treat your hair. Following a routine with hypoallergenic hair products for sensitive skin will help keep your scalp healthy and your hair shiny.
If you have sensitive skin, your scalp will become easily irritated due to a few factors listed below.

Bad Hair Habits to Lose
  • Shampooing too often. You may end up with an itchy scalp, specially if you use shampoo with harsh detergents.
  • Not shampooing enough. This can lead to oily scalp which can lead to dandruff.
  • Using shampoo with harsh ingredients, such as sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS). SLS dries the scalp.
  • Styling your hair when it's wet. Wet hair needs extra TLC or it can be easily damaged.
  • Using flat iron or blow drying with hot settings. It may take longer, but a lower setting is better for hair.
A Little TLC for Healthy Hair
  • Dry your hair as much as possible with air or towel, before using a blow dryer. Brushing, combing or blow drying wet hair can easily cause damage to the cuticle. Also, blot dry with towel, instead of rubbing. This helps prevent tangles.

  • Shampoo with fragrance-free hair products for sensitive skin that are also free of sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS). SLS dries the scalp and is irritating to sensitive skin.

  • Use the lowest setting of the styling tools you use, instead of starting with the hottest setting.

  • When swimming in a pool, consider a cap to protect your hair from chlorine.

  • Get regular hair trimming if you notice split ends. Hair stylists recommend if the end of your hair does not come to a blunt end, it's time to trim.or
  • Constantly keeping your hair in tight braids or keeping your hair in pig tails or a pony tail with a tight rubber band, is also not healthy for hair.
