■ Comments from professional scalp and dermatologists
“tricca” top stylist Mr. Taku Orii
Scalp care is the foundation for healthy hair. If the foundation is not healthy, good hair design and beautiful hair will not be born, so I think that the industry as a whole needs to raise awareness of scalp care.
Dermatologist Tomoko Kobayashi
We tend to think that the scalp and face are two different things, but since both are connected by a single piece of skin, the importance of care is the same. It is important to maintain just the right amount of moisture and sebum and take proper scalp care.
