Scalp Staining

Hairprint can stain the skin of the scalp when the skin is very dry, or when there is buildup of dry skin cells there. The pigmentation of the skin is temporary.

If this occurs, you may see flakes of color falling off of your head. These are the pigmented dry skin cells being let go from your scalp in the normal shedding process of your skin. 

Please note: The drier your skin is, the more likely it will be to stain, and the more flakes you may see.

If this occurs, please do one or all of the following when you wash your hair to loosen and remove the pigmented skin cells:

1. Replenish your scalp AFTER your Hairprint Color Restorer application by massaging your scalp with the Botanical Elixir of your choice. 

2. Exfoliating the scalp both before and after the treatment will help alleviate dry skin. Using a scalp massager is very beneficial for increasing blood flow to the scalp as well as sloughing off dead skin.
