The scalp houses 150,000 hair follicles! The main function of the scalp is protection; however, dryness of the scalp leads to hair dryness and dullness, which in turns leads to hair damage and loss in hair quality. Scalp oiliness can lead to limp and lifeless hair. Loss in scalp quality leads to thinning of hair strands, hair loss and finally hair density concerns.
There is a multitude of reasons for the deterioration of scalp and hair:
- The environment including the sun’s harmful UV rays, extreme temperatures causing sensitivity, itchiness, redness, excess scaling and dryness
- Air Pollution oxidizes scalp sebum aggravating scalp concerns further and causing loss of scalp quality
- Bacterial or Fungal aggressions – the scalp has the perfect climate for micro-organisms which cause severe recurring dandruff, itchiness and odor
- Hormonal fluctuations lead to over & under stimulation of the sebaceous glands causing oiliness & dryness respectively
- Lack of sleep, stress, medication and lifestyle changes cause loss in scalp quality, aggravated scalp concerns
- Inherited hair loss could cause premature hair thinning
The SCALP EXPERT Programmes by Kérastase include the use of highly effective products at home as well as in the salon. It is a combination of regular in salon rituals and consistent use of home care products that will result in a healthier scalp and beautiful hair.

THE KÉRASTASE HAIR DENSITY PROGRAMME: FOR VISIBLY DENSER FULLER HAIR IN 90 DAYS
Hair follicles are continuously switching from an active state to a resting state. Because of external and internal aggressions, the resting phase can last up to 10 years with no hair production effecting hair density immediately. Extensive, lasting hair loss can result in the scalp becoming more visible through the thinning hair.
The solution is made possible with the patented molecule from L’Oréal Advanced Research Laboratories – Stemoxydine - which claims to awakens dormant follicles and boosts follicular activity and ingredients which optimize the active phase of hair growth to improve Hair quality.
