Healthy hair starts at the scalp. The health of your scalp determines the health of your scalp. And if you have an unhealthy scalp, then you are more likely to have hair problems and it can also affect your hair growth. Let’s find out more!


Hair products, oil, dead skin cells, and dirt easily build up and clog the follicles and pores on your scalp. This irritates the scalp, prevents hair growth, and helps the fungus and bacteria to grow. Fungi, bacteria, and other infections can cause itchiness, dandruff, irritation, and many other problems. So it becomes vital to keep your scalp clean.

Therefore, clean your scalp regularly with a clarifying shampoo. You can also use tea tree oil to fight bacterial growth. Avoid products with silicones or mineral oil, which coat the hair and build up on the scalp. Also, exfoliate your scalp regularly with a scalp scrub.


Your scalp has oil glands that produce sebum, natural oil that greases the hair strand as it grows. Sebum is necessary for moisturized and healthy hair. Your hair will be dry and less manageable if this oil is stripped from the scalp.

Treat your scalp with beneficial oils that keep your roots and scalp moisturized and promote growth. Don’t wash your hair too often and use only natural shampoo that won’t strip or damage your hair. Diet plays a major role in keeping your hair and scalp healthy, so take a healthy diet on a regular basis.


Your hair will have more difficulty growing if you damage the skin on your scalp. A variety of factors can cause direct damage to the scalp, including intense temperatures, UV radiation, and harsh chemicals.

You should protect yourself from the sun. You should also avoid hair products that irritate your scalp. Also, keep away from washing your hair with extremely hot water or spending time outside in the extreme cold.

PH Balance

A healthy scalp pH is vital for moisture retention in your hair. Acid causes the hair cuticle to crush, helping it preserve moisture. If the scalp is unhealthy, the cuticle opens up and the hair dries out more quickly. A pH balance is also necessary to prevent fungus growth and bacteria.

Hence, you should use products that mimic the target pH of your scalp and stay away from alkali products such as harsh shampoos.

How to treat unhealthy scalp:

  1. Deep condition your hair to provide a deep moisturizing and nourishing treatment to your hair and scalp.
  2. Cleanse and exfoliate with a cleansing shampoo to get rid of all the buildup and bacteria.
  3. Use a conditioner to restore moisture and hydrate your scalp.
  4. Seal in moisture with all natural oil which will prevent your scalp from drying out again.

I am honestly thankful to Advanced Hair Studios. I suffer from a hair-pulling disorder. There is this constant urge to pull off your hair follicles. It is painless when you pull but extremely painful when you see a missing patch on your scalp. But, I feel blessed with AHS hair fall treatment. I can see baby hair growing. It’s been two weeks. All I can see is low hair fall.

I have done my hair transplant surgery in AHS Delhi Branch on 2019 by travelling to Delhi from Dhaka, Bangladesh. The front and the back portion of my head were bald and through the hair transplant surgery, they have managed to cover the front portion of my head and the former appearance of my face returned back. The way they collected hairs from the donor portion did not affect my donor area at all. I am quite happy with my result. I have been consulting with them for a second seating so that they can cover the back portion of my head as well so that the hair density on top will increase and the bald portion of my head will reduce to a minimum level.
