Dove's Scalp + Hair Therapy collection is formulated to treat the source of growing hair—the scalp, the brand said.

Developed with dermatologists, the line is a preventative range formulated to nourish, strengthen and transform hair from root to top. 

“For the Dove Scalp + Hair Therapy collection, our R&D team dedicated time to scientific development, while drawing upon decades of Dove research, to create a unique approach to scalp care that delivers clinically proven results,” said Beth Labrecque, principal scientist for Dove. “Most people used to overlook the scalp, not knowing that 99% of hair's natural nourishment and strength comes from the scalp. Knowing that the hair bulb (papilla) is the living root of the hair follicle, we created formulas proven to enhance scalp health, thus promoting a nourished environment for hair follicles to thrive. For example, the Fullness Restore Density Boost Scalp Serum uses a blend of niacinamide (vitamin B3) to strengthen and moisturize the scalp barrier, peptides and zinc to nourish the follicle and fortify the roots, and glycerin to hydrate and help encourage a healthy scalp environment.”
