Dry hair and scalp problems become more common as the weather gets colder, but how do you know when flakiness and irritation are symptoms of dry weather, dandruff or something more serious? Searching your symptoms online can be dangerous. In fact, you can convince yourself you have pretty much any disease under the sun by typing your symptoms into Google (don’t do it!).
Diagnosing your scalp issues online can not only yield frightening results, but it can also lead you in the wrong direction, and therefore, to the wrong treatment. So what can you do? First of all, you can talk to your hair stylist. Scalp conditions can be a result of poor hair care and over processing, which a stylist who knows what they’re doing would never subject you to. They can also be the result of genetics, using the wrong products, and even your diet.
We’ve already covered what you can do to keep your scalp healthy in our previous blog installments:
But what if your scalp condition needs more than that? There is professional help available. In fact, just across the street from our Yorkville hair salon is a place called Kara Scalp Detox Salon. Their motto is “Beautiful hair starts from healthy hair roots” and we agree. Kara specializes in holistic treatments for scalp conditions including:
- Hair loss
- Thinning hair
- Itchy, oily and dry scalp problems
Kara Scalp Detox Salon is the first service provider in Canada to specialize exclusively in scalp care service. They don’t simply massage your scalp – they use effective techniques, equipment and natural solutions to revive your scalp and encourage healthy hair growth. Their process starts with a microscopic analysis of your scalp and hair to determine the cause of your issues, followed by a consultation with a trichology specialist. After this evaluation you’re treated to what can only be described as a wonderful spa-like experience including aromatherapy, foot massage, shoulder massage, scalp massage, deep cleansing and detoxification of your scalp, and a nourishing treatment. Sounds pretty great!
