We’re certain you've caught onto the double cleansing trend for the skin on your face. But did you know that double cleansing your scalp is actually a thing? Hair and scalp experts, PHS Hairscience have always been advocating Double Cleanse - a two-step cleansing ritual customised to meet your scalp’s needs. We find out more!

Why Double Cleanse the scalp?

If you do not know, the scalp is different from the skin on the rest of the body. For a start, it has an abundance of blood vessels, not to mention a higher density of hair follicles, sweat glands and sebaceous glands than any other part of the body. The scalp also has its own distinctive microflora. When sebum and sweat accumulate on the scalp every day, it creates an environment that harmful bacteria can thrive in. This is why the scalp is prone to disorders, such as oiliness, itchiness, dandruff, acne and other conditions that may even lead to hair loss if left untreated.

Also - because of the scalp’s unique physiology, proper cleansing is crucial to prevent the unhealthy build-up of excess sebum, sweat and dirt that could clog hair follicles and result in scalp problems. Once the scalp is damaged, it’s incredibly hard to reverse the effects, which is why at PHS Hairscience advocates a preventive approach. A good scalp care regime can do wonders for the scalp’s health and when the scalp is in tip-top shape, hair is healthier, happier and more beautiful.

How exactly does a scalp Double Cleanse work?

The PHS Hairscience Double Cleanse is designed to be a simple process that takes care of unhealthy build-up in your scalp. This two-step power cleansing is designed to eliminate unwanted dirt, sebum, sweat and styling residue without stripping the scalp of its protective natural oils. The easy to follow ritual prevents hair follicle blockage, rebalances the scalp, enhances micro-circulation and improves the scalp’s natural resistance against infections.

Step 1: Start with a deep cleansing shampoo such as the ADV Nutrition Shampoo. Suitable for all scalp types, this daily deep cleanser thoroughly removes surface grime and oil, leaving the scalp purified and hair roots perfectly clean.

Step 2: Follow immediately with a second correcting shampoo that focuses on your hair and scalp issues. PHS Hairscience have a range of correcting shampoos to treat specific concerns like hair loss, greying, dandruff, sensitivity or dry, damaged hair and to protect the scalp. With 16 shampoos in this range to choose from, there’s something for every hair or scalp concern.
