Dr. Barbara Sturm’s MOLECULAR HAIR & SCALP COLLECTION
combines healthy hair care with professional performance, using ingredient science-based formulations that are uniquely targeted at supporting the scalp’s ecosystem. The innovative and clean formulas combine carefully selected, scientifically researched botanicals with advanced, high performance ingredients to holistically address the diverse needs of the hair and scalp for healthy and beautiful hair.
Similar to the skin, the scalp that lies beneath your hair is a unique ecosystem termed the ‘scalp microbiome,’ a microenvironment comprising of an epidermis, sebaceous glands which secrete sebum, sweat glands and adipose tissues as well as a variety of microorganisms, including bacteria, fungi and viruses. These microorganisms are vital in keeping our scalp skin healthy - studies have shown that a balanced scalp microbiome allows for better absorption of the vitamins and minerals that lead to healthy hair growth. However, typical haircare products and treatments contain harsh ingredients can cause imbalances or suffocate the scalp, leading to adverse reactions such as itching, dandruff, irritation, sensitivity, redness, breakouts and excessive oiliness. Additionally, lifestyle factors such as stress, nutrition and pollution can also play a role, causing the acceleration of and triggering premature hair loss and greying. The right day-to-day haircare which promotes a clean, clear and balanced scalp is therefore essential for the scalp and hair’s overall health.
