Scalp Care 101

It’s that time of the year when spring starts to feel so close, but one look at the calendar reminds us we’re not quite there yet. Since the cold and dryness are still lingering many of us are struggling to keep our scalps flake free and our styles current. Some of the most common questions we hear at the salon right now are, “What do I do about my itchy scalp?” and “What is best as far as a new style?”

The first thing we will touch on is scalp care. The winter can be harsh on our skin and scalp with dryness and flakiness as the most common ailments. If your scalp is itchy, flaky, or dry then we recommend asking your stylist about a scalp treatment like Aveda’s Scalp Remedy Treatment. It might also be worth considering a deep conditioning treatment. These two combinations will help keep your hair in tip-top shape.



As far as a new look or style, the bob is still one of the most classic, yet in style looks ever. The sleek middle part bob has made a big come back and looks great in any length. Another look that has emerged in 2020 is the shag. Not a 70s shag, but a more modern take on it with less prominent layering. We understand that not everyone loves or can handle a long mane, but long tresses are back in style. Longer hair can be styled in so many ways and there are plenty of low-key ways to throw you hair in a bun with a cute hair piece and take on the day.





We always try to promote healthy hair at Bazzak, so please do take the time to talk to your stylist about any hair and scalp concerns. This is one of the key components to keep your hair vibrant and to minimize split ends. Plus, healthy hair can make any style pop! We hope this article leaves you with some ideas to keep your hair on point and healthy as we make our way into the New Year.
