Which Scalp Type is the Best?

Previously, we discussed the four scalp types and how you can identify which scalp type is yours. Now, we will explain which scalp type is the best and why.

After comparing the four scalp types i.e Dry, Oily, Normal and Combination, it is very clear that a normal scalp is the best scalp type among the rest.  

Normal or balanced scalp type is a sign of a healthy scalp. A normal healthy scalp is the perfect foundation for shiny, beautiful and healthy hair.


What does a Healthy Scalp look like?

How does one identify a healthy scalp? The scalp will look clean, smooth and moisturised with no breaks or cuts on the surface. Generally, it is free of itching, irritation, flaking and redness. There should also not be any painful or sensitive areas or even signs of infection, sunburn or hair loss. 

A healthy scalp has the right amount of sebum and an ideal pH level. It also produces just enough sebum to moisturise the scalp without causing greasiness.


How do I achieve & maintain a Healthy Scalp?

It's important to take better care of your scalp for healthier hair growth. Besides finding a suitable shampoo for your scalp, it's essential to incorporate scalp care products into your daily hair care routine. 

Using extra scalp care products such as hair tonics, treatments, hair oils or serums will ensure extra protection and care. This will create a healthy environment for your hair to grow!

If you have an oily, dry or combination scalp type we recommend trying our best-selling Chanamu Scalp Care Tonic (you can use this even with a normal scalp type, this will will help maintain a healthy scalp too!) ! It contains key natural active ingredients such as thyme, cumin, hawthorn and last but not least, tea tree oil. Tea tree oil has antiseptic properties that can help control bacterial and fungal buildups. It's anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties makes it especially helpful in targeting external scalp problems!

Chanamu Scalp Care Tonic is fuss free to use. Simple spray the tonic onto your scalp and rub it into your scalp for better absorption. Allow it to dry with a hair dryer or by air-drying, and that's all! We recommend to use this 2 times a day~


Tea tree oil benefits both Oily and Dry Scalp. Tea tree oil deeply moisturises the hair and scalp and even greatly reduces dryness, flakiness and itchiness - a problem that is very common among people with Dry Scalps.


Those battling with Oily Scalp face excessive production of sebum. The excessive sebum will cause your hair to become greasy and attract dirt and impurities. This will result in dandruff.

The tea tree oil in Chanamu Scalp Care Tonic can treat the source and regulate the scalp oil's production, resulting in a healthier scalp and better-looking hair.
