Can skincare be used for your hair too?

Posted by Dermatologist's Choice Skin Care on

Simple answer, yes! The products you are currently using for your skin can have similar benefits for your hair too. We are sharing a few with you below.



  1. Exfoliate weekly- just as you would exfoliate your skin to avoid make-up, oil, and dirt build up, it makes sense for your hair too. A chem peel for your scalp sounds crazy but all those dead skin cells and product build up can lead to breakouts at your hairline and flakiness at your roots. By using a cleanser or peel with alpha and beta hydroxy acids, like Dermatologist’s Choice pH Balanced Cleanser, it can speed up cell turnover on the scalp, like it would for your face. This helps to control flakes and cleans your scalp and hair roots from oil and product buildup that can cause irritation or dull lifeless looking hair. We recommend to just lather a quarter size amount into your scalp and hair roots after you shampoo.
  2. Minimize Frizz- Lotions rich with hydrating formulas can also smooth and hydrate fly-away frizz and dead split ends. By applying a dime size amount of hand and body lotion to your roots and ends, frizz will lay calm for a sleek and nourished hair do. Try Dermatologist’s Choice Hand and Body Lotion with Shea Butter for best results. It’s as easy as that!
  3. Hydrating Treatment- The same treatments that make your skin glow can make your hair shinier or smoother too! The best treatments target one concern and are light enough to layer without weighing down your hair. Try Dermatologist’s Choice Pre-Bath Oil with jojoba oil and almond oil- to smooth and add shine without making your hair look greasy or dragging down your roots. Plus, oil can deeply condition your hair and scalp during the dry winter months and after extensive exposure to water and the sun in the summer.
