Dry hair, oily hair, normal hair... Your hair may lack moisture.
Is your hair rough, dull and split? In short, your hair is dry and brittle.
To care for and treat fiberhair, here are our tips with 100% organic care products.
Why does hair become dry and brittle?
Let us start by distinguishing two cases.
There is such a thing as naturally dry hair and hair that becomes dry.
However, the cause is the same, namely a lack of sebum which weakens the hair.
This lipidic film of the hair is secreted by the sebaceous glands.
When this is missing, the hair no longer retains water.
The scales spread and it becomes dehydrated.
This process can be aggravated by frequent exposure to heated appliances, the sun or an aggressive environment.
Chlorinated swimming pool water,sea water, pollution and wind affect fiberand weaken the keratin that makes up 95% of the hair.
This natural protein gives the hair its suppleness and elasticity and protects it from the aggressive elements.
A lack of keratin will transform the texture of the hair and change its constitution.
It becomes rough, dull and brittle.
Blow-drying, going to the beach or taking care of your hair doesn't have to be a choice.
It is entirely possible to reconcile your desires with good hair practice and the right products.
It is all a question of method.
Get rid of sulphates, parabens and other sulphates...
Washing products and hair care products containing sulphates, parabens or silicones are double-edged weapons.
While shampoos filled with chemical surfactants such as Sodium Lauryl Sulfate andAmmonium Lauryl Sulfate (ALS), wash and lather thoroughly, but they irritate the scalp and can damage the hair follicle by depleting the keratin.
It isbest to avoid them when practising coloring, as they cause the colours to bleed.
Silicones are not better for the hair.
On paper they will coat the hair, close the scales, make it shinier and protect it from thermal shock or limescale.
However, if used excessively, they tend to smother the fiberhair, lead to overproduction of sebum and theappearance of dandruff, and even slow down hair growth.
Finally, parabens are not getting much better press.
They are said to cause endocrine disruption, allergies and potential carcinogens.
For all these reasons, we strongly recommend the use of organic hair care products and natural shampoos to preserve the hair's balance and structure.
