Add a Scalp Treatment to Your Service Menu

Winter weather is notorious for creating static, split ends, and dry hair. Naturally, we do all we can to counteract the side effects by indulging in weekly masks, wearing more protective hairstyles and hats, and not washing our hair as much, but we all know what that does to our scalp. Soon enough, you’ll have clients commenting on their itchy scalp, dryness, and flaky dandruff.

Healthy hair starts with a healthy scalp. Offer a service for scalp buildup during the winter and give your clients’ scalps some extra TLC this winter; they won’t believe how much gunk accumulates on there. Scalp treatments eliminate the dry skin and buildup in a quick and easy way. It’s an underestimated service but one that provides many visible benefits—your clients won’t be overlooking this ever again!

10-Minute Scalp Treatment

Step 1: Brush dry, dead skin from the scalp in small, short strokes with a boar bristle teasing brush (softer than a comb).

Step 2: Brush Davines NaturalTech Calming Superactive soothing serum on a freshly brushed scalp.

Step 3: Massage in for 10 minutes.

Step 4: Wash and style.

Of course, you’ll see a significant amount of buildup and dry skin coming off the scalp, but there’s nothing gross about this treatment. If this is what it takes to make clients smile and feel beautiful, it’s worth it!

If you’re feeling fancy, finish the scalp treatment with a deep conditioner. Advise your client to do weekly scalp treatments at home with the Davines NaturalTech Calming Superactive soothing serum.
You may remember doing scalp treatments in cosmetology school. Now is the time to bring them back! Scalp treatments are a great add-on service during the winter months. We advise charging $20-$30, depending on whether or not it’s a standalone service or an add-on to a haircut and color.

Any client with a dry, itchy scalp certainly won’t object to a 10 minute massage, so go ahead and get started on offering scalp treatments. Put this service on a board outside your salon or strategically place a few shelf talkers inside—you may be surprised at how much interest you get and how much you’ll want one, too.
