Skinification is one of the biggest hair trends of the moment. But what is it? And what does it mean? 

Your scalp is an extension of your skin, so it makes perfect sense to care for it in the same way you care for the skin on your face and body. The skinification of hair uses sophisticated, high-quality ingredients traditionally used in skincare in hair care products.

Scalp first: targeted care for healthy hair
Harklinikken’s approach has always been scalp first, as we know that the health of the hair is determined by the health of the scalp. When the scalp microbiome is unbalanced, it can lead to itchy, dry and flaky skin, inflammation and even hair loss. As healthy hair starts at the root, skinification looks to prep and prime the scalp with sophisticated formulas, creating the optimal base for healthy, beautiful hair.

We often spend a lot of money on facial skincare products filled with active ingredients that nourish the skin, but relatively little on the skin on our head. We pour over the ingredients list of skincare products but when it comes to shampoos, conditioners and hair treatment products it seems that anything will do. We choose the right cleanser for our face, but what about our hair? Do you put the same effort into keeping your scalp clear of dirt as you do your skin? Probably not. 

The skinification of hair changes that, focusing on good scalp health as the foundation of healthy hair. With more follicles than anywhere else on the body, the scalp is the start and end of healthy hair. Just like the rest of your skin, it needs a balanced microbiome to feel and look its best. Our growing understanding of the hair and scalp mean that what we put on our head is just as important as what we put on our face.

Harklinikken’s advanced product formulas with naturally good, active ingredients traditionally found in skincare products target specific hair types and problems to rebalance the scalp to ensure hair grows healthy, strong and long. As no two heads of hair are the same, customization is key to achieving your hair’s greatest potential. You need to select the appropriate products to rehydrate, rebalance or restore. To that end, consulting a hair specialist for a personalized regime has become just as necessary as a monthly trip to a beautician.
