Polina Andreeva, trichologist of the author's Vita clinic, St. Petersburg

“Excessive sebum secretion, dandruff, and various styling products make peeling for the head a necessary procedure. Horny particles form a “shield” on the skin, which prevents it from breathing. The main function of any peeling is the removal of small particles from the surface of the head. Also, this procedure has a strong regenerative effect. The main condition - this, of course, moderation - should not be peeled more than once a week, if you do not want to become the owner of dry scalp. Those who love home peels should be careful when making them - the concentration of the product should be as low as the time it takes to keep the product on the head. Peeling is particularly relevant in the event that the client in the foreseeable future will face medical masks, rubbing and other cosmetic procedures.

Anna Vostrikova, practicing trichologist, Saratov

“Most women have an extensive personal arsenal for the care of the scalp and hair: various shampoos, masks, and balms. However, women often forget about the wonderful peeling procedure. The skin on the head, as well as on the face and on the rest of the body, is gradually covered with a layer of cornified particles. This layer prevents the growth of new hairs and impairs the work of the sebaceous glands. Despite all the benefits of peeling, it is worth noting that this procedure is not daily. It is enough for owners of greasy hair to do it once in 2 weeks, dry - once a month. A peeling agent can be purchased at professional salons or shops, having previously discussed the purchase with a personal hairdresser. It is great if the purchase will include essential oils, extracts from medicinal plants and algae, and other useful components. People with excessively sensitive scalp should abandon this procedure, as well as those who have abrasions, cuts, scratches and so on in this area. It is also permissible to do the peeling yourself - fine salt or coffee will be suitable for this purpose. ”.

Why do you need scalp peeling?

Every day our hair is exposed to the harmful effects of external factors. Dust and dirt from the street settles on the head, cosmetics accumulate on the hair and the skin surface, hyperproduction of the sebaceous glands leads to clogging of the pores. As a result, metabolic processes in the skin are disturbed, and the hair becomes dull, losing vitality, and grows more slowly.

Peeling from the English word "to peel" ("peel") involves the removal of dead skin cells of the epidermis from the skin surface. Scientifically, this process is called "exfoliation." The principle of peeling for hair and scalp is the same as that of a similar procedure for the face and body.

With regular cleansing, the work of the sebaceous glands is normalized, itching and other unpleasant sensations are eliminated. Exfoliation accelerates the regeneration of the scalp, activates cell metabolism, stimulates skin tone, improves nutrition and blood supply to the hair follicles. Peeling with certain components has anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial effects, eliminates excessive oily scalp, removes toxins, stimulates hair growth.

  • removal of dead cells, dust, dirt, excess sebum, residues of cosmetics from the surface of the head,
  • ensuring the penetration of beneficial substances contained in masks, scrubs, balsams, to the follicles. After peeling, cosmetic and medicinal products for hair act many times more effectively,

“In general, the composition is justified by the action of the shampoo. I strongly advise those who have the problem of hair loss on the background of high fat content. In any case, you should still check with the doctors. The situations with hair loss are different for everyone, but an endocrinologist and a gastroenterologist are mandatory. My hair is currently oily due to hormonal problems.

So, briefly, what I like: Alerana for oily hair really does its job, reduces fat, very gently cleanses, does not dry, quickly improves the condition of the scalp. Hair loss decreases gradually. ”

  • Good for oily hair type. It doesn’t weigh down at all, and no fat strands, so to say, “icicles”, the hair remains clean for a long time (they don’t get fat the next day, like after some shampoos)
  • Gives hair lightness and volume!
  • Hair easy to comb, and do not tangle!

Since I have a tendency to cut my hair lengthwise, they cannot be overdried, I use coconut oil to nourish them, but if the shampoo is not suitable, even oil will not save the hair. It is this shampoo that pleased me, it does not overdry the hair, moisturizes and nourishes them in moderation.
  • I also liked the fact that the shampoo is suitable for long-term use, you can not think about the constant change of shampoo.
  • And more importantly, since this line of shampoos is aimed at preventing hair loss, she also coped with this task, after a long application the result will be noticeable. ***

Review of reviews used

Of course, such a popular procedure was not ignored by lovers of quality hair care. Most reviews of head peeling have a bright positive color:

“At first I was preparing peeling with the addition of water. But because of this, the mixture quickly dissolved and did not perform its main functions. I tried to massage completely dry products, without adding anything at all - also not particularly, the mixture does not move well on the skin. An excellent option was a mixture of bulk ingredients with a spoon of yogurt or kefir. The composition does not immediately dissolve, the mixture perfectly nourishes and cleans the epidermis. "

“For some time I did the procedure of cleansing the scalp in the cabin. But the course requires a decently high cost, so I decided to make a peeling at home. As a component for exfoliation, it did not take sugar or salt, but black bread. A few crusts filled with boiling water and left to swell for 30 minutes. Next, apply the product on the roots of the hair a little massage and leave for a few minutes. Rinse with shampoo.

I tried Nioxin SCALP RENEW Dermabrasion Treatment. A wonderful product that looks more like a cream. Now I use only them. Once again, I was convinced that a natural product does not always mean the highest quality product. ”
