Who doesn’t want gorgeous hair? Taking care of our tresses involves using the best shampoo, conditioners and hair treatment products, right? Well, that’s only one-half of what we should be doing.

Having good hair means also looking after our scalp. This often-neglected part of our body is important when it comes to preventing issues such as limp hair, dandruff and greasy roots.

Did you know that our scalp age isn’t the same as our numerical age? Problems such as hair loss and dry scalp can happen to anyone no matter how old they are as our scalp can age prematurely. Our scalp skin ages 12 times faster than body skin and six times faster than the skin on our face. In order to maintain a healthy scalp, regular scalp treatments are essential as it’s the foundation of thick, shiny, beautiful hair. 

Caring for our scalp means shampooing daily to keep it clean – but this isn’t enough. As our scalp ages, it leads to changes such as clogged pores and loss of hair nutrients or pigmentation. These can then cause scalp imbalances and inflammation, resulting in the hair issues mentioned above. If you want to go a step further by preventing hair or scalp issues, you need a preventive approach to stop scalp aging.

Other factors that affect scalp health include stress, pollution, hormonal imbalance, UV exposure, chemical treatments and having an unhealthy diet or leading an unhealthy lifestyle.

Scalp treatments are what you need to nurture good habits for beautiful hair and to prevent scalp ageing. PHS HAIRSCIENCE’s H2 Advance Scalp Repair Treatment (H2 ASRT), $297, looks after your scalp at a cellular level. It’s suitable for anyone who just wants to keep their scalp in its optimal form, or for those who already have conditions such as dandruff, dryness, oiliness and sensitivity. And it’s especially ideal for anyone looking for fast results.

H2 ASRT restores scalp health by repairing damaged cells, improving cellular health and rebalancing your scalp. It prevents hair loss and thinning and treats scalp disorders. All this is done with the unique blend of ingredients in the H2 Cell Repair ampoule. H2 + Botanical Stem Cells speeds ups and enhances cellular repair work, while Botanical Extracts promote cell detoxification and enhance blood circulation for more efficient delivery and absorption of nutrients.

H2 ASRT is available in six variants for common moderate to severe scalp problems – dry dandruff, sensitive scalp, oily dandruff, acne scalp, combination scalp and aging scalp.
