When it comes to our hair, we love trying out new serums, oils and masks. But what about our scalps? As it turns out, just shampooing your head may not be enough to maintain a healthy scalp.

There are a number of factors that can affect your the skin on your head such as product build-up, sunburn, changing seasons, certain foods etc. Considering that your follicles are the only living component of your mane, it’s so important to ensure that it remains balanced and clean. If the follicles get blocked or inflamed, you could face a number of issues such as hair loss, bacterial infections and flakes. To prevent such conditions, you need to be using targeted scalp treatments.

Here are 5 scalp treatments that are worth incorporating into your haircare routine.
