Scalp facials are a rejuvenating service designed to improve the appearance of the scalp and hair. Like a traditional facial, this service involves a thorough cleansing, exfoliation, and moisturizing of the scalp to remove excess oils, dead skin cells, and product buildup. It often includes a soothing massage to enhance blood circulation for optimal product absorption and to promote relaxation. Scalp facials can address various issues like flakiness, dryness and itchiness while promoting overall scalp health and providing a sense of pampering and renewal. After all, a healthy scalp is the foundation for beautiful, healthy hair.

Promoting a Scalp Facial to Clients

  1. Education: Start by educating clients about the importance of scalp health. Explain how a healthy scalp is the foundation for beautiful hair and that various scalp issues can affect hair’s appearance and overall well-being.
  2. Demonstration: Use the Malibu C Head Lab Digital Scope to reveal what is real. This visual aid can help them understand their scalp issues better and make informed decisions about services or products.
  3. Consultation: Once you’ve provided education and a visual for your client, you can now provide guidance on next steps. Discuss what service will be best to resolve their scalp concerns such as dryness, itchiness or flakiness, and provide and at-home regimen to maintain their scalp health.

At-Home Maintenance

One of the amazing things about the Malibu C Head Lab service is that you can document your client’s scalp journey through digital images, allowing them to visualize the progress on their journey to a healthy scalp. It’s important for clients to maintain the in-salon Head Lab service at home in-between visits. The digital scope makes it easy for you to see their progress to decide if the maintenance plan is working or if it needs adjusted. The Malibu C Scalp Wellness Collection is a great system to maintain the ideal environment for optimal scalp health. It’s typically recommended to shampoo and condition with the Scalp Wellness Shampoo and Conditioner with every wash and using the Scalp Therapy Wellness Remedy once a week for mild buildup. The Malibu C Leave-In Conditioner Mist is another option to add to the at-home regimen for additional hair and scalp nourishment.
