All You Need to Know about Scalp Treatment

Maintaining a healthy scalp goes beyond washing, conditioning and using hair products.  If you want to boost your hair health or deal with scalp problems, it’s time to look beyond the basics. 

Professional scalp treatments offer comprehensive solutions that enhance scalp health while also addressing hair concerns such as dandruff, itching and hair loss. In this article, we will discuss these and other benefits, and help you determine if you need a scalp treatment.

What is a scalp treatment? 

washing hair: scalp treatment process

Scalp treatments comprises a range of professional procedures and therapies designed to promote scalp health and address various conditions. Unlike regular shampooing and conditioning, which primarily focus on cleansing and moisturising the hair, scalp treatments target the scalp directly to address issues such as dandruff, dryness, oiliness, sensitivity, and hair loss.

These treatments include applying specialised products, massage techniques, and sometimes technologies to deliver targeted benefits to the scalp. From exfoliating dead skin cells to soothing irritation and stimulating hair growth, scalp treatments offer a holistic approach to maintaining a healthy scalp environment.

Professional scalp treatments are performed by hair and scalp specialists who assess your condition and recommend the most suitable treatment for your needs.

What are the benefits of a scalp treatment?


One of the core benefits of scalp treatments is exfoliation. Like the skin on the rest of your body, your scalp can accumulate dead skin cells, excess oil, and product buildup over time. This buildup can congest hair follicles, lead to dandruff and hinder hair growth. 

Scalp treatments that incorporate exfoliation help to slough off these impurities, promoting a healthier scalp environment and encouraging better hair growth.

Reduce dandruff

Dandruff is a common scalp condition characterised by flaky, itchy skin. While it’s not usually a serious medical concern, it can be embarrassing and uncomfortable. 

Scalp treatments designed to target dandruff often contain ingredients like salicylic acid and fruit enzymes, which have anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties. These treatments help to reduce flakiness, soothe itching, and control the overgrowth of yeast on the scalp, effectively combating dandruff.

Relief from itch and irritation

An itchy, irritated scalp can be incredibly bothersome, making you feel uncomfortable and even pain if it’s severe. Scalp treatments focusing on soothing and calming the scalp can relieve these symptoms. 

Ingredients like aloe vera, menthol, and witch hazel have soothing properties that alleviate itchiness and irritation, leaving your scalp feeling refreshed and comfortable.

Oil control

Overactive oil production can lead to greasy, limp hair causing issues like dandruff and acne. 

Scalp treatments formulated to regulate oil production often contain ingredients like centella asiatica and green tea extract, which help to absorb excess oil and impurities from the scalp. By balancing sebum levels, these treatments leave your scalp feeling clean, fresh, and less prone to oiliness.


Like the rest of your skin, your scalp needs adequate hydration to stay healthy and function properly. A dry scalp can lead to flakiness, itching, and even hair breakage. 

Hydrating scalp treatments infused with nourishing ingredients like hyaluronic acid, coconut oil, and glycerin replenish moisture levels, restoring balance to the scalp and promoting a healthier scalp environment.

Improved hair growth

Healthy hair growth begins with a well-maintained scalp. Scalp treatments that enhance blood circulation and provide nourishment to the hair follicles are key to fostering hair growth and preventing hair loss.

Ingredients like peppermint oil, vitamin E, and biotin are known for their hair-stimulating properties, making them popular choices in scalp treatments designed to boost hair growth.

Enhanced shine and volume

A well-nourished scalp can result in hair that’s shiny, voluminous, and full of life. Scalp treatments that improve scalp health and stimulate hair growth can indirectly enhance the appearance of your hair, giving it a natural lustre and a thicker, fuller look.

Signs you need a scalp treatment

  • Dryness and flakiness: If you notice dry, flaky patches on your scalp, it could indicate a lack of moisture and exfoliation. A scalp treatment can help to hydrate the scalp and remove dead skin cells, restoring balance and reducing flakiness.
  • Excessive oiliness: An overly oily scalp can lead to greasy, limp hair and contribute to issues like dandruff and acne. Scalp treatments that regulate oil production can help control excess sebum and keep the scalp fresh and clean.
  • Itchiness: Persistent itching and irritation on the scalp may indicate inflammation or an underlying skin condition. A soothing scalp treatment can relieve itchiness and help calm and comfort the scalp.
  • Redness and inflammation: If your scalp appears red, inflamed, or tender to the touch, it could indicate irritation or an allergic reaction. Scalp treatments containing soothing ingredients can help to reduce redness and inflammation, promoting a healthier scalp environment.
  • Excessive hair loss: While it’s expected to shed some hair every day, excessive hair loss or thinning may be a cause for concern. Scalp treatments that stimulate circulation and nourish the hair follicles can help to promote hair growth and prevent further hair loss.
