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.
Here is a quick list of serums for different hair and scalp concerns. Needless to say, before you use them, do consult a doctor.
L'Occitane En Provence Force & Strength and Volume Scalp Serum
This scalp serum is made with five essential oils, vegetal keratin, and arginine. These ingredients help reduce the fall of fine hair due to breakage and stimulate hair growth.
This brand offers two scalp serums—for anti-dandruff (Piroctone Olamine, salicylic acid and prebiotics) and for exfoliation (salicylic acid, lactic acid and zinc complex).
Starting from ₹599
From amla, curry leaves, apple cider vinegar, and bamboo to fermented rice water, Nykaa has launched a new scalp serum range that includes six serums.
