Scalp treatments may sound clinical (and a little gross), but massaging a serum (like Kérastase Initialiste
) or even a shampoo (try Clear Scalp & Hair Therapy Strong Lengths Nourishing Shampoo
) that contains essential oils, such as avocado and coconut, into your roots a few times a week will "nourish the scalp, creating the right foundation for healthier, stronger hair with less breakage," says Francesca Fusco,
a dermatologist in New York City. And don't skimp on the massage part—aim for a scalp rub that lasts a minute or two: "It stimulates circulation and promotes better scalp health," Fusco says.
