A few tips to help keep your scalp healthy
Washing your hair every day is ideal for most people, however if you suffer from some scalp problems or damaged hair, you may need to wash less frequently as the importance is in what you shampoo with is as that is equally important as how often you do it. It is recommended that you shop for brands that have their basis in natural ingredients or those suited for your specific scalp problems. At Brown Sugar Hair Salon Dubai, we have a few options that are good for both your hair & scalp.
A well-balanced diet rich in fruits and vegetables is always recommended for a healthy life style and will help supply the skin of the scalp with the raw materials necessary to produce new, healthy cells. Do your best to eat at least two to four servings of fruits and three to five servings of vegetables daily. To ensure that your body has an adequate supply of protein, which is necessary both for scalp care and a healthy head of hair, you could include two to three servings of meat, poultry, fish, eggs and nuts.
Exfoliate your scalp on a regular basis as this helps boost the skin cell turnover process. If you suffer from dry skin or psoriasis, you may need to exfoliate two or three times per week; otherwise, exfoliating once weekly is generally adequate to remove dead skin cells from the surface of your scalp.

Our hair stylist will assess your scalp condition and prescribe the best treatment for you.
Maintain Hair moisture
When you shower and bathe, avoid exposing your scalp to hot water whenever possible. Instead, use lukewarm water for rinsing, which allows more of the natural sebum necessary for moisturizing the tissue to remain on your scalp. Once or twice per week, skip blow-drying and allow your hair to naturally air dry to give the skin on your scalp a break from the drying heat of your hair dryer
Keep the circulation going in your scalp by massaging the skin once a week, using gentle circular motions. The skin on your scalp is an intricate network of blood vessels that carry oxygen and vital nutrients to the tissue. For the ultimate indulgence, consider getting a professional scalp massage at Brown Sugar Hair Salon Dubai.
Use of chemical treatments
Chemical treatments like a great perm, straightening or hair coloring treatment can improve the look of your hair and boost your confidence, however chemicals used in these treatments can sometimes dry out and irritate your scalp. It is advisable to have them done / performed by a professional to limit damage, and ensure you follow their recommendations for how often to touch up.
Also, during any chemical treatment, notify your stylist immediately for signs of irritation like burning or itching, should they occur
