The scalp is perhaps one of the most easily forgotten areas of the body – especially when it comes to self care and T.L.C. That said, many of us are beginning to come around to the fact that the scalp is just as important as the skin on the rest of the body, as well as the hair itself.
There’s a plethora of things that can cause scalp itchiness and flakes including build up of product and dead skin cells, and excess sweating, which can clog pores and accelerate build up itself. Dandruff is also a very common cause of itching and flaking, caused by a high rate of shedding skin cells at the scalp, which is also often paired with excess oil production. Find out our tips on how to treat an itchy or flakey scalp here.
Hair shedding is a normal process of renewal and every day we lose 50-100 hairs from our head. As new hair grows through the follicle, old hair eventually falls out as part of the ‘exogen’ phase of hair growth. However, when this process is imbalanced, with less hair growing than falling out, it can make the hair feel thin, flat and lacklustre. Learn more about what caused shedding and what INKEY List treatments we recommend.
The shine of your strands is a literal reflection of the health of your hair which can be impacted on a daily basis from a range of influences - from the water we wash with to how we dry and style. Find out how hair can become dull or lack lustre and the way you can boost shine including using key INKEY List hair products.
The hallmark of damaged hair, split ends are common but can also be an indicator that your routine needs a refresh to prevent and protect and keep locks looking luscious for longer. Find out more about split ends, what causes them and how to prevent them occurring.
When finding the resolution to your hair woes, the first focal point is identifying your individual hair type. As with skin, there are 4 dominant types of hair which are split into further categories (A-C) within each type which range in density of hair growth.

Dry and damaged hair can often get confused as both have similar symptoms including brittleness, breakage, neverending tangles, split ends, dryness and frizz. Despite the similarities on the surface, the cause, treatment and prevention are a bit more tailored. Find out which INKEY List products we recommend to tackle and prevent dry & damaged hair.
The scalp is literally the root of our hair health and can be the first place to show signs of imbalance which can contribute to the overall look and feel of your locks. From flakiness to excess oil, the scalp is equally as susceptible to problems such as imbalance, environmental factors and disorders. Learn about why a healthy scalp is important and what INKEY List products can help keep a clean and healthy scalp.
Whilst it’s normal to lose 50-100 hairs per day, increased loss, thinning and flatness of your hair can be a result of deeper rooted lifestyle, genetic and environmental imbalances. Learn more about what causes hair loss and hair thinning, the hair growth cycle and The INKEY List products that can help prevent and reduce hair loss as well as add volume.
When it comes to haircare, layering is not just a styling thing. Just like skincare, layering your hair products is an effective way to maximise the results of your routine whilst also targeting multiple concerns. Whether it’s an itchy scalp or dull, lacklustre locks, build a recipe that works for you and your hair and scalp goals.
Bleaching, heat treatments, colouring and styling - the daily grind for luscious-looking locks can be a heavy burden on your hair, with damage being one of the top haircare concerns we encounter.
