The Scalp Clinic at McGills Hairdressing Salon in Edinburgh
We have recently been working on a project that is very important to us; a Scalp Clinic. Treating scalps has been around for a long time, but at McGills Hairdressing Salon in Edinburgh, we’re taking things further by documenting the whole process, and providing personalised, one-to-one advice on your diet and lifestyle.
You’ll also receive in-salon services, as well as take-home products, meaning you’re sure to feel looked after without the feeling of being in a surgical environment.
Davines Scalp Treatments - Eco Friendly Scalp Care at Top Salon in Edinburgh
We find that, far too often, clients are advised to buy products that treat their hair, while ignoring the root cause; the scalp. Each scalp problem is treated differently using various products and procedures over a period of time. The timescale can range from 5 to 14 weeks, and every treatment provided involves in-salon treatments, as well as home care to help sustain the treatments. The reason we want to create a space specifically for scalps is because no one can have healthy hair without a healthy scalp.
We are firm believers in sustainable beauty, and that’s why we use the beautiful Davines brand, allowing us to treat these problems using products that are free from harmful chemicals such as parabens, sulphate, and PDP. All of the products are made from ingredients naturally grown in Italy.
Treating any kind of scalp problem can be a daunting experience, and we’ve learned that people don’t really know where to turn to seek help. As expert hair stylists, it’s our job to advice on the best possible solution to any problem, whether it’s to do with your hair or your scalp.
McGills Hairdressing Salon - Our Scalp Treatment Journey
So here it is, our scalp testing journey so far. Keep up-to-date with our progress and see the difference produced using an intensive scalp program with eco-friendly products grown and sourced at the Davines village in Italy.

The Results: Irritated Scalp
Products used in salon – Calming Spray, Calming Shampoo, Renewing Pro Boost Superactive, Renewing Conditioning Treatment.
Treatments in salon – 4.
Products used at home – Calming Spray, Calming Shampoo, Renewing Conditioning Treatment.
During the first week, the scalp looked very flaky and inflamed with open sores where the client had been scratching. She described her scalp as feeling tight and itchy, and was constantly scratching and picking at it.
After the initial consultation, we decided that the issue was down to extreme sensitivity, which causes inflammation and irritation, and that the Calming range along with the Renewing Pro Boost Superactive would be used to clear the build-up, along with the renewing conditioning treatment.
Over the weeks, the sores began to heal due to the scalp being scratched and picked less. The client described her scalp as feeling less tight.
The last couple of treatments cleared the flakiness and the colour of the scalp appeared healthier. The client said her head was no longer itchy.
By the last treatment, the scalp was completely clear. The client had found a good routine of using the shampoo, conditioner and spray. She also used the spray in-between washes; 2-3 times per week. She said she enjoyed using the products as they were easy to use and pleasant.
The client was happy with the treatments and said that she found them to be effective. She also stated the products are less harsh compared to others she had used in the past.
Based on the fact that there is a noticeable difference in the appearance of the scalp before and after treatment, we have come to the conclusion the treatment has been very successful. Check out the results below.....
The Results: Dry & Brittle Hair
Products used in salon – Replumping Shampoo, Replumping Conditioner, Replumping Hair Filler Superactive.
Treatments in salon – 5.
Products used at home – Replumping Shampoo, Replumping Conditioner, Replumping Hair Filler Superactive.
Before the treatment, the client had very dry and brittle hair, which had very poor elasticity through the front hairline. It looked dull and frizzy, and laid very limp. The hair was also very fine and had no bounce.
After each treatment, the hair looked increasingly hydrated, smooth and shiny.
Midway through the course of treatments, there was a visible difference in the condition of the hair, even after having it highlighted in-salon. The hair had more bounce and the client noticed that she was getting a better natural curl. Prior to this, her hair was just frizzy with no definition.
At the end of the course, the hair felt softer and had lots of shine and volume. It had more moisture and there was a visible curl in the back.
The client said her hair had more bounce and felt a lot less dry. It also felt thicker and softer, and even her friends had commented on her hair’s improved appearance.
The pictures show that her hair is now less brittle and fine, especially around the front, and the elasticity is much better. There was also a noticeable difference in the scalp, which is moisturised with new hair growth.
The client enjoyed using the products and felt she needed to use less of them than other products. She also said her hair is a lot more manageable so no longer feels the need to use other styling products.
