What is your scalp telling you?

Your Scalp & Your Health

When you get a headache it’s your body’s way of telling you that something is wrong. Maybe you need to eat, maybe you’re lacking vitamins, or maybe you’re a little dehydrated – all of these things cause headaches. You can take an Advil and feel a little better, but why not address the root of the issue? Just because you silence a headache doesn’t mean the problem has gone away.

The same can be said for your scalp. Is it red, flaky, itchy, or sore? You need to listen to your body.

Itching and Burning

A scalp that has a persistent itch is most likely trying to tell you that there’s something unhealthy going on. Sometimes an irritated scalp can be due to a chemical reaction or product overuse. You want to be sure that you use products that don’t dry out your scalp and strip it of all its important oils. 

Excess Oil

If your scalp has stopped regulating its own oil production properly it might begin to recreate the oils being stripped away by chemical shampoos. It’s important to recognize when your scalp has gone into panic mode and begins to look extra greasy.  Toss out those chemical laden shampoos and try something organic which will help your scalp manage its own oils without interference. Capilo’s Ekilibrium is designed to treat oily scalp and dry hair. It regulates excess scalp sebum, balancing the PH, providing long lasting comfort for hair and scalp. 



Chemical hair products disrupt the natural acidity and pH balance of your hair and can lead to a very unhealthy scalp.  The natural acidity of your hair prevents fungi and bacteria on the scalp and keeps the cuticle closed and healthy. When the scalp is too alkaline it can separate and shed flakes. A gentle cleanser might help and Apple Cider Vinegar may enhance your odds of balancing and restoring your scalp’s natural levels.  You can also relieve your scalp of dry dandruff with Capilo’s Oxygenum Dry Dandruff, an anti-dry dandruff treatment purifies the scalp and hair, strengthens the scalp’s natural defenses while eliminating dandruff and regulating the sebaceous glands.


If you are worried about your hair thinning or have a scalp condition, we recommend to seek consultation with a hair specialist or Trichologist who can diagnose your condition and design a personalized treatment plan specific to your needs.
