Last blog we discussed how to deal with hair loss but once its all out you say, “Now what?”
You may think that now that you don’t have hair you don’t have to take care of your scalp but boy are you mistaken.
Here are some tips on how to take care of your scalp
- Don’t get rid of the shampoo
Those tiny hairs on your scalp may be hard to see, but they still need some of your attention. Oil and dirt can build up on your head, so make sure to use a little bit of shampoo and conditioner to keep your scalp moisturized. You may think that body soap is a better option but it will dry out your scalp so it’s best to go with products made for your hair.
- Shield your scalp from the sun
This is the most important thing to remember, being bald and burnt is no fun!
Hair protects your head from all elements so now that your head is not protected you will notice the weather more. If it’s the winter throw on a hat or headscarf. In the summer use sunscreen and a cap.
On cloudy days your head can burn too so make sure to use sunscreen and don’t skimp on it…
- Keep hydrated and moisturized
Especially in the winter when your head can dry out make sure to stay hydrated by drinking a lot and use sensitive moisturizer on your head.
- Try a Scalp Massage
Massaging your head helps circulation and promotes hair growth.
How to do it: Starting with all 10 fingertips on your head, gently apply pressure and massage over your head. Start from your forehead to the crown of your head and down your neck. It’s pretty easy to do it yourself.
- Be proud of your bald head
Hold your head up! Being bald is beautiful, but you have to own it! You are a warrior and fighter. Be proud!
