If you love using shampoos with chemicals in them, your scalp is more prone to be dried out by your the healthy oils and proteins being stripped. By using shampoos with moisture, it’s less harsh on your scalp and gives your hair a moisture boost while cleansing your strands. A true win-win!


Try incorporating different oils.

Jojoba oil is very similar to natural sebum for your scalp, which can replenish moisture to your scalp. If you want, you could even mix these two oils to create a special oil to give your scalp even more of a soothing moisture boost!
