Tips for a Healthier Scalp

While most of us spend a lot of time thinking about the look or health of the skin on our face, we can’t necessarily say the same about the skin on top of our heads. Because it’s usually covered up by hair, we typically don’t ever think much about the scalp. However, if you want a thicker and fuller head of healthy hair, it’s important to keep the scalp healthy. Here at 18|8 Lombard, we’re proud to offer scalp treatments among our many different men’s grooming services as well as products which promote hair growth and scalp health. Our luxurious scalp treatments are designed to rejuvenate your scalp and keep it healthy. As your trusted Hinsdale barbershop, we’d also like to provide you with a few more tips if you’re looking to improve the health of your scalp.

Get Your Blood Flowing

Regular scalp massages provide many benefits including increased blood flow to your hair follicles. Increased blood flow promotes healthy hair follicles and boosts the strength of hair roots, both of which help to promote hair growth and thickness. Scalp massages are also very relaxing which contribute to stress reduction. With all these health benefits, why wouldn’t you get regular scalp massages?

Wash Your Hair Regularly

It’s very important to find the shampoo that’s a good personal fit for you. We all have different hair types and use different hair products so there are specific shampoos that work best for our situation. We offer our guests a wide variety of shampoos and conditioners.


If you happen to find yourself fighting off dandruff a lot, we recommend exfoliating your scalp. Dandruff is actually nothing more than dead skin cells falling off of your scalp – a completely natural and normal process. Exfoliating once or twice a week can actually speed up that process and make it less noticeable throughout the day. You’ll want to use a gentle exfoliating facial scrub and rub it gently into your scalp before or after you shampoo. It will scrub those dead skin cells off of your scalp.
