Your scalp can tell you a lot about the health of your hair.
You might be surprised by how much information your scalp can give you if you pay attention to it and how quickly it can change from day to day and week to week.
If you're curious about what's going on with your hair, see below for some common symptoms associated with scalp problems and what they mean for your beloved locks.
If you're excessively shedding hair and clogging up your plughole, it may be time to take action. Excessive shedding can be caused by several things: stress, hormonal fluctuations, poor diet and even side effects from medication. Treatments are available if you can't change any of these factors in your life.
They can help ease excessive shedding by strengthening the hair follicle itself so that it doesn't fall out as easily or quickly when under stressors such as those mentioned above.
Mesotherapy hair restoration
Hair mesotherapy consists of bio-stimulation, a treatment that biologically activates hair cells through small injections, which are totally painless.
It reverses follicle shrinkage, promotes scalp regeneration, prevents hair loss, boosts hair thickness and stimulates hair growth.
Active ingredients includes vitamin complexes, hyaluronic acid, mineral salts, coenzymes, amino acids, bio-mimetic peptides, growth factors, and antioxidants that are essential for balancing and nourishing the scalp.
This treatment is for everyone who wants hair with more vitality, volume, shine, resilience, and quality.
Itchiness, flakiness and dryness
If you're scratching your head (pun intended) over what's causing the itchiness, flaking and dryness on your scalp, a fungus called Pityrosporum ovale is probably to blame. This type of yeast thrives in warm environments and has been linked with dandruff, which causes white flakes to appear on the scalp. If you've noticed any of these symptoms but have yet to try treating them with medicated shampoo, we recommend doing so as soon as possible.
If you have an oily scalp and hair, it's not a sign that your scalp is unhealthy. It can be a sign that you're washing your hair too frequently. Overwashing hair, environmental factors, and using certain hair care products can contribute to an oily scalp.
Lumps and bumps
While it's normal to have some bumps on your head, if you notice new lumps or bumps that don't go away after a few weeks, it could mean something is wrong.
Scalp bumps can be caused by several things, including fungi such as ringworm, bacteria such as staphylococcus, or other infections.
They may also occur as part of an autoimmune disease such as psoriasis or eczema.
If you're experiencing any of these symptoms, it's important to see a dermatologist or doctor as soon as possible.
They will be able to examine your scalp and determine what is causing the problem. They may prescribe medications or recommend changes in your diet to help improve your condition.
