Chances are you have a multi-step skin care routine, but when it comes to the skin under your hair (that would be your scalp), you may not do a single thing. But your scalp is simply an extension of your facial skin, notes Justina Mejia-Montane, Vice President, Global Product Development at Aveda. And just like your face, your scalp needs cleansing, balancing, and protecting.
“Consider your scalp the soil from which your hair grows,” says Justina. Once you think of it that way, it shouldn’t be hard to understand why you might need to be giving it a little extra care.
Fortunately, Aveda’s new Pramāsana™ line, which is composed of an Exfoliating Scalp Brush, Purifying Scalp Cleanser, and Protective Scalp Concentrate (as well as a Nourishing Scalp Masque, available as an Aveda in-salon treatment only), builds the foundation to healthy hair—namely, a clean, healthy scalp. Quite literally, Pramāsana™ combines two Sanskrit words: Prama (or “foundation”) and asana (“position”), because we believe that a clean, healthy scalp is the foundation on which your hair is positioned to achieve its greatest beauty. To that end, we’ve paired ancient Ayurvedic wisdom and modern science to create products and rituals that help you cleanse and care for your scalp, helping your hair to reach its fullest potential.
To get the most out of the line—which was designed for dry, oily, and normal scalps alike—start with the Exfoliating Scalp Brush. “You’ll want to work in little circles,” says Justina. “The brush loosens up debris and buildup and stimulates microcirculation. Plus, it feels great!” It can be used both in and out of the shower.
