Scalp Health 101: A Guide to Getting the Healthiest Hair Possible

When we think of skincare, we don’t typically consider our scalp. Think about how much time, money, and effort you put into your skincare routine; well, your scalp needs the same TLC! It can help prevent and control conditions affecting hair and scalp health and create a healthy environment for hair growth.


The Importance of Scalp Health


More than 40 million men and 20 million women suffer from hair loss in the United States, and more than half of the population suffers from scalp issues. The skin on your scalp is similar to the skin on your face and body, but it has more oil glands and hair follicles. Caring for your scalp can help nourish the skin, protect your skull from infection and trauma, and prevent hair thinning by preventing harmful compounds from building up on the scalp, leading to inflammation and an unhealthy environment for hair growth.


Scalp care is not just about hair health; it’s also about your scalp’s health. Dandruff affects about half of the adults, with men being more likely to be affected than women. By practicing scalp care, you can effectively ward off scalp diseases and conditions like dandruff, itchiness, and oil buildup, ensuring a healthy and comfortable scalp. At Boss Gal, our team of experts is dedicated to ensuring your scalp is in its healthiest state and can prevent any issues from arising, giving you peace of mind about your hair and scalp health.


Scalp Facial by HydraFacial


If you haven’t heard, we now offer Hydrafacial’s Keravive Scalp Facial, the dreamiest, most relaxing treatment you can receive. This facial is not just about relaxation, it’s designed to stimulate, nourish, and hydrate your scalp for fuller and healthier-looking hair. It’s excellent for all hair types and conditions, and the benefits extend beyond the treatment session. Whether you have locs, hand-tied extensions, or color-treated hair, you can still enjoy all the benefits of the Keravive Scalp Facial!

After taking photos with the Scalpscope, we brush the hair with our high-frequency comb to improve blood circulation and prevent dandruff and itchy scalp. Next, we purify the scalp with light suction and gentle exfoliation to remove excess oil and follicle-clogging debris, such as dead skin cells and hair product buildup. Then, we infuse these newly cleansed hair follicles and skin with a hydrating serum containing a blend of rejuvenating peptides and growth factors, leaving a refreshed and hydrated scalp microbiome. Lastly, we massage that serum into your scalp for maximum efficacy. The best part about this treatment is that it leaves your scalp and hair refreshed and clean like you just left the hair salon!


After your treatment, you will take home a Keravive peptide-rich spray that continues to support natural hair growth post-treatment by penetrating deep into each purified and stimulated hair follicle. It’s always best to do a series of treatments to maintain this healthy environment for hair growth. We recommend a series of three treatments spaced one month apart for the best results.


PRP Scalp Treatment


If you have yet to hear of the PRP Scalp Treatment, you’re missing out because this procedure is like liquid gold for hair growth. It’s a minimally invasive treatment that starts with a quick blood draw from your arm. We then spin it in a centrifuge to separate it into three layers: platelet-poor plasma, platelet-rich plasma, and red blood cells. The platelet-rich plasma is singled out for use in your treatment. The nurse provider numbs your scalp in the area to be treated for extra comfort. Then, they will inject the PRP carefully into your skin so the fluid is applied precisely at the level of the hair follicles to encourage fuller, healthier hair. Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP) contains platelets, which are about five times more concentrated than in regular blood. These platelets contain proteins and cytokines that promote growth, healing, and rejuvenation. When injected deep into the scalp, the platelets may stimulate dermal papilla cells, which play a critical role in healthy hair growth.


This can help promote hair growth, increase hair thickness, and protect hair from prematurely shedding. Typically, one treatment will not be enough to see full correction, so we recommend a series of 3-5 treatments spaced one month apart. PRP Scalp Treatments, combined with Keravive Scalp Facials, will be the gold standard for correcting hair loss and thinning while preventing scalp diseases.


Nutrafol Hair Growth Nutraceuticals


These daily supplements include a patented blend of clinically tested ingredients called the Synergen Complex to target key root causes of thinning hair from within, provide support directly at the scalp, and defend hair from damage.  The Synergen Complex addresses root causes, including hormones, stress, lifestyle, metabolism, nutrition, and aging. They target concerns of thinning, shedding, poor hair growth, breakage, and weakness. We carry vitamins for both Women and Men, plus a Vegan and Post-Partum formula. Nutrafol Hair Growth Nutraceuticals, in conjunction with PRP Scalp Treatments and Keravive Scalp Facials, will target hair loss and thinning due to internal and external factors.
