If you've ever wondered whether the trusty skincare products lining your bathroom shelf could work their magic on your hair as well, the answer is a resounding yes! Your skincare arsenal can be a hidden treasure trove for your locks, offering a host of benefits that you might not have considered before. We're here to spill the secrets and share a few skincare superstars that can also work wonders for your hair.
1. Weekly Exfoliation for a Healthy Scalp
Just as you exfoliate your skin to keep it fresh and radiant, your hair and scalp can benefit from the same treatment. Imagine it as a chemical peel for your scalp—yes, it might sound unconventional, but it's incredibly effective. Dead skin cells and product buildup can lead to breakouts along your hairline and flakiness at your roots. To combat this, opt for a cleanser or peel containing alpha and beta hydroxy acids. We recommend the Dermatologist’s Choice pH Balanced Cleanser. This non-soap cleanser with a mild concentration of glycolic acid accelerates cell turnover on your scalp, similar to what it does for your face. The result? Flake-free, clean hair roots, free from excess oil and product buildup that can cause irritation or leave your hair looking lifeless. Simply lather a quarter-sized amount onto your scalp and hair roots after shampooing for best results.
2. Taming Frizz with Hydrating Lotions
Say goodbye to unruly frizz and split ends with the help of hydrating lotions. These rich formulas can work their magic on your hair, too. Applying a dime-sized amount of hand and body lotion to your hair's roots and ends can calm frizz, leaving you with sleek and nourished locks. Dermatologist’s Choice Hand and Body Lotion is a fantastic option for achieving this. It's a simple yet effective solution to keep frizz at bay. Plus, it's an oil-free formulation so it won't make your hair greasy.
3. Hydrating Treatments for Shiny, Smooth Hair
Your favorite skincare treatments that give your skin that radiant glow can also bestow shine and smoothness upon your hair. The key is to choose treatments that address your specific hair concerns without weighing down your locks. Enter Dermatologist’s Choice Pre-Bath Oil, enriched with jojoba oil and sunflower oil. This gem not only imparts shine without any greasiness but also deeply conditions your hair and scalp. It's a must-have, especially during the dry winter months and after extensive exposure to water and sun during the summer.
Try all these effective solutions by using the Dry Skin Set by Dermatologist's Choice for your hair.
