 AbstractHealthy scalp for healthy hairAfter a rapid review of the scalp biology and potential scalp skin conditions, the presentation will address formulation strategies to maintain a healthy scalp.For many people, the scalp is hidden under the hair where no one can see it, and so it does not cause much daily concern. Rarely are consumers complimented for a beautiful scalp. However, attention should be paid to it. The scalp is the soft tissue envelope of the cranium. It is the anatomical area bordered by the face at the front and by the neck at the sides and back. There are five layers to the scalp; the first and outermost one being the skin. This unique part of the body is both an extension of the face and a concentrated area for hair growth. In fact, the proximate structural arrangement of the scalp and hair leads to an interdependent relationship between the two. Thus, maintaining a healthy scalp is important for healthy hair, as well as a healthy hair-free head.
