Hair loss is a great concern among all, especially among the young people.   Most companies promise great shape of hair by using their shampoos and conditioners.  However, it has been established by many studies that harsh chemical dyes and shampoo and conditioner have damaging effect on hair.  Such harmful products also adversely impact on scalp.

For keeping hair in natural shining shape, one can look for herbal or natural volumizing shampoo. There are many ideal formulations that go beyond gently cleansing and giving hair that soft, gentle lift. Natural volumizers like Vetiver add fullness and body, while Soapberry gently cleanses and Lavender creates an amazing fresh, sweet, floral aroma that is soothing.

A natural conditioner will help condition, moisturize and nourish hair and scalp. A herbal conditioner, or one with natural ingredients, will be ideal for balancing all hair types as it will enhance the manageability and softness of hair.

There are people with scalp tenderness, which can lead to disorders like psoriasis and extreme dryness, dandruff. Signs of inflammation, tingling, numbness, irritation, itching or sensitivity of the scalp point to scalp disorder. It can also be caused by conditions affecting the blood vessels, nerves, and tissues below or surrounding the scalp.

Scalp tenderness is a common problem, though symptoms vary from allergies, psoriasis, eczema to hair loss.

Other causes are poor diet, chemotherapy and radiation therapies, acne, cysts, allergic reactions, hyperthyroidism or other therapies in menopause,  infections of skin cells or hair follicle shafts, viral diseases causing skin sores.  

As promoter of natural skin care products, Herbally Radiant has been highlighting the importance of staying away from harsh chemicals  in most of the fancy sounding hair care or skin care products. Most dyes and shampoos are petroleum-based- inexpensive ingredients for the manufacturers, but risky for the users.
First aid ointments, creams, antiseptics, and dressing materials that might help in basic cases, but long-lasting  scalp tenderness should be reported to a doctor.
