HOW TO: Take Better Care of Your Sensitive Hair And Scalp

Do you have sensitive hair or a sensitive scalp? Do you want to soothe scalp irritation and promote stronger, healthier hair? HASK has you covered. Here are three steps you can do to take better care of your sensitive hair and scalp.

Go fragrance-free

Did you know that fragranced beauty products are a big culprit when it comes to causing irritation?

If your scalp has been feeling itchy, irritated, inflamed or flaky, the fragrance in your haircare may be to blame. To figure out if fragrances are contributing to your sensitive or irritated scalp, try cutting out fragranced haircare and seeing how your hair and scalp react. The new HASK Sensitive Care range is 100% fragrance-free.

Try this shampoo and conditioner when cutting out fragrance to experience healthy, nourished hair, free from irritation.


Eliminate harsh ingredients or products

If you know that your scalp is sensitive, you should ONLY be using soothing, calming ingredients on your hair and scalp.

This means NO harsh sulphates, parabens, phthalates, drying alcohols, gluten, etc—as these are known irritants which are, unfortunately, common in a lot of haircare. Harsh ingredients, like sulphates, not only dry hair out and contribute to less healthy hair over time—these ingredients could be what is causing your sensitive scalp in the first place.

Eliminate these harsh ingredients from your haircare regime by opting for a Clean Beauty brand like HASK. With HASK, all our products and ingredients are free from nasty ingredients like sulphates and parabens, saving your sensitive scalp, hair and skin from unnecessary irritation.


Use ultra-nourishing ingredients

If you have a sensitive scalp or hair—calming, soothing and highly moisturising ingredients will be your best friend.

Incorporate ultra-nourishing and gentle ingredients into your haircare regime to add moisture back into your scalp and hair, while soothing irritation. For a haircare line dedicated to doing the above, try HASK Sensitive Care.

The range is made with calming oat for their essential nutrients, and anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. The range also features ultra-moisturising vitamin B5 (panthenol), which plays an important role in strengthening the skin barrier by locking moisture into the scalp and hair.
