Signs that your scalp may need extra TLC

Signs that your scalp may need extra TLC

What have you done for your scalp lately? Although we tend to focus most on the actual hair that grows out of our heads, this hard-working skin is where the magic happens, and a happy scalp leads to healthy hair. SEEN was created with the health of all your skin in mind, and it's important to remember that the scalp is skin, too. Scalp care and hair care are intrinsically connected, since any product you use on one is going to affect the other, explains SEEN founder and Harvard-trained dermatologist, Dr. Iris Rubin. Your best hair starts with a healthy scalp, and scalp is skin. The follicles on your scalp are literally the manufacturing plant for your hair. SEEN optimizes and nourishes your scalp without the worry of clogged pores or irritation—and can help you see stronger, smoother, healthier hair.”

Scalp issue: Acne
You may not always be able to see scalp acne, but you can certainly feel it (and you may be prone to scratching or picking at it). Pore-clogging hair care products can contribute to scalp acne just as the wrong skincare products can lead to blemishes on your face, back, or chest—which is why there’s a need for non-comedogenic shampoo, conditioner, and styling products. SEEN has been tested and proven to be non-comedogenic, which means it won’t cause breakouts on your scalp—or any other skin (such as on your face, back, and chest) for that matter.

Scalp issue: Itching
You know how a harsh facial cleanser can leave your skin feeling tight, uncomfortable, and ultimately itchy? Shampoos with surfactants that strip your scalp (and hair) of the natural oils that help maintain hydration can lead to the same unwanted side effects. Instead of harsh cleansing agents, sulfate-free SEEN Shampoo uses gentle, coconut-derived ingredients that deliver all the suds of traditional shampoos while nourishing the scalp, with the added bonus of naturally-derived bisabolol for extra soothing benefits.

Scalp issue: Dryness and flaking
The aforementioned itching may be associated with dryness and flaking—and in that case, SEEN has you covered. In a study of 30 patients with mild-to-moderate dry, flaky scalp who used SEEN for 4 weeks, 93% saw improvement (based on dermatologist grading). Although SEEN can help keep the scalp happy and healthy, SEEN products are not medicated. If dryness and flaking persist, it’s best to see a dermatologist as these symptoms may be caused by a skin condition such as seborrheic dermatitis, eczema, or psoriasis.  

SEEN’s proven scalp benefits
SEEN is so focused on hair and scalp health that we put our products to the test in the form of an independent clinical study. In addition to the benefits for flaking and dryness mentioned above, 73% reported improvement in scalp itch after 4 weeks.

This verified buyer can attest to the scalp benefits she experienced after trying SEEN:

“All it took was one wash to make me fall completely in love with this shampoo! As soon as I massaged in in, I felt my hair softening. As for my usually itchy and flaky scalp: It is still breathing a sigh of pure relief!”
