Luxury Hair Care for Healthy Scalp and Hair: Our Top Picks
Hair has never been my strong suit. I find it challenging to be patient (and talented) enough to style my hair by myself. What's more, my already thin hair is stressed from coloring it blonde over the years. This is why you'll usually see me with my hair pulled back into a low bun.
But, one thing I am good at is making sure I use exceptional hair care products that strengthen and nourish not just my hair but my scalp, too, because taking care of your scalp (which is also skin) determines the overall health and condition of your hair. Like my favorite skincare, I look for great brands with effective ingredients and exceptional results to keep my hair and scalp healthy for my stylists to work their magic. Here are my top luxury hair care picks and why I recommend them for healthy hair and scalp.
Why Luxury Hair Care Products Go Beyond Just Hair
A hair care routine should extend beyond just your hair. The health of your scalp— also your skin! — is critical to luscious locks. Following my same skincare philosophy, luxury hair care products are typically multi-step regimens that respect, support, and protect the integrity of the hair and scalp. And parallel to our skin, a healthy lifestyle, including adequate nutrition and low stress, encourages strong, shiny hair and a well-balanced scalp.
A healthy scalp is the foundation for beautiful hair. The scalp can become dry or built up with products and oils, affecting hair growth and how it looks and feels. Dry shampoos and styling products can really add up, but cleansing, rebalancing, and moisturizing the scalp can improve circulation, prevent hair loss, and unclog hair follicles. You certainly don't have to suffer from dandruff to start caring for your scalp. It's for everyone.
We can't forget our eyebrows and eyelashes! These areas can become lackluster from chemical or environmental stressors, makeup, or over-plucking. But some no-brainer, easy-to-use serums from Revitalash promote healthy and luscious lashes and brows.
Lastly, hair care products like shampoos and conditioners come into contact with our scalps and the surrounding skin on our faces and necks. It's unavoidable. So, it's important to stay mindful of these products' ingredients that can either nourish or disrupt the skin. More on this next.
Beneficial Ingredients For The Hair And Scalp
My favorite luxury hair care products are crafted with purifying, strengthening, and nourishing ingredients to protect the hair's long-term health.
Moisturizing ingredients in skincare can also be beneficial for the hair and scalp. That's why you'll sometimes find face and body oils that work amazing on dry, split ends. You'll see ingredients like vitamin E, camellia seed oil, coconut oil, and niacinamide in skin care and hair care. A few other ingredients I've seen great results from are strengthening proteins like hydrolyzed silk, amino acids, and keratin.
Exfoliating ingredients such as lactic acid, salicylic acid, apple cider vinegar, and fruit enzymes rebalance and reduce oil production in scalp treatments.
Since products like shampoo and conditioner come in contact with the skin on our faces and necks, they can unintentionally find their way into your skincare routine. For some people, this may not make a huge difference. However, sensitive skin types like mine can react to harsh foaming agents like sodium lauryl sulfate. Sulfates can cause dry skin, irritation, itchy skin, scalp, or even dermatitis. This is also an ingredient my colorists recommend avoiding because it strips the color from the hair far sooner than I'd like.
