A healthy scalp and a good diet are key to great hair. But the scalp often gets ignored, while we focus all our energy on the face and hair. 

The traditional thick oiling isn’t always the solution to every scalp problem, especially if your scalp is congested or prone to flaking or eruptions in this humid weather. Just like a face serum is formulated to work deeper into your skin to serve its purpose, scalp serums and tonics can also help provide deeper nourishment to your scalp.
