A healthy scalp: the secret to healthy hair

Pampering your scalp and keeping it healthy is the secret to beautiful, healthy hair.

Long forgotten in beauty rituals, the scalp is a part of the epidermis that must be taken care of, just as we do for our body or face.

A healthy scalp will give you stronger and thicker hair, while an irritated scalp, damaged by dandruff for example, will weaken the hair, which will become thinner and duller.

The condition of the scalp can vary depending on different factors: exposure to natural elements like the sun or the wind, the rate of sebum production, dandruff problems or not.

Indeed, the scalp, 600 cm2 and 2,500 receptors per cm2, is very sensitive and undergoes external aggressions throughout the day which vary according to the seasons:


  • Humidity: the scalp represents an ideal home (dark and humid area) for the development of the micro-bacteria called Malassezia Globosa. Naturally present on the scalp, it feeds on the sebum produced on the surface of the scalp and transforms it into fatty acids. These irritating substances can lead to inflammation and itching. The scalp then accelerates its cell renewal, which precipitates the appearance of dandruff.
  • Lifestyle: stress, diet, cigarette smoke or pollution can influence the quality of our scalp.
  • Temperature: too high a temperature causes irritation of the scalp. Wearing a hat or cap increases the temperature of the scalp and leads to increased sweating, which is conductive to the development of Malassezia Globosa.
