How to maintain your hair
Everyone can have beautiful hair. Find out what simple steps you can take to improve hair care and help it flourish.
Know your hair type to pamper it better
To better maintain your hair, you need to know who we are dealing with! Is your hair thick or thin? Are they straight, wavy, curly, frizzy? Sebum level, are they oily, dry or normal?
So many questions that need to be asked to determine what your hair's specific needs will be. To moisturize dry hair, you can use fatty oils like castor oil, while oily hair will need a regulating oil like jojoba oil.
Wash your hair well
The first action we think of when it comes to maintaining our hair is washing. The frequency of washing as much as the products used to clean the hair are important. Washing your hair every day, for example, can damage the scalp and strip hair of the natural oils that protect it.
The watchword when it comes to washing your hair: gentleness. Gentle products, gentle handling and gentle drying contribute to good maintenance.
- Use a shampoo with the most natural composition possible . Harmful ingredients in cosmetics abound, and although they seem to have a good impact on the hair, this impact is temporary.
- When washing your hair, make circular movements on your scalp at a calm pace, without abusing it by trying to go quickly.
- Rinse your hair with lukewarm water. Hot water promotes sebum production and opens the hair scales. Conversely, water that is too cold closes the scales but does not facilitate the elimination of impurities as much. When it comes to washing out shampoo, lukewarm water is therefore best.
- Dry your hair gently (i.e. not twisting it like a tea towel!) with a towel whose material is not too aggressive, such as microfiber. Prioritize drying in the open air as much as possible to protect your hair from heating appliances.
Nourish and moisturize your hair
Maintaining your hair then requires good nutrition and hydration. The care you provide alongside washing is very important.
Make masks on your hair, remember to provide it with what it needs in oil and water so that it doesn't lack anything. Depending on whether the hair is oily, dry or dehydrated, the intake and needs will not be the same; hence the importance, as we said earlier, of knowing your hair type. We generally recommend doing a mask or oil bath once a week, and leaving it on for a few hours.
Remember to apply a strengthening hair serum after shampooing which will protect your hair from external aggressions and nourish it. A few drops are enough to improve the health of your hair over time!
Adopt a healthy lifestyle
A diet too focused on processed products or tobacco consumption prevents you from having beautiful hair. Our body shell directly reflects what happens in our body: so don't neglect what you consume on a daily basis.
The use of food supplements for hair can be a real help in providing the body with what it is lacking and restoring vigor to the hair. The interview also involves what is happening inside! If you are lacking in nutrients through your diet, taking supplements can be a good solution.
Going from chemical to natural
Excessive use of chemical coloring or maintenance products damages the hair. The best way to maintain your hair is to go natural. Natural hair products are typically formulated with ingredients derived from plant and botanical sources, making them gentler and less harsh on the hair and scalp.
Unlike chemical products which may contain potentially harmful ingredients such as sulfates, parabens and silicones, natural products are often free of these substances. This reduces the risk of scalp irritation, dryness and sensitivity, which contributes to healthier hair.
Our tea tree oil shampoo , for example, is ideal for gently cleaning hair thanks to its purifying properties.
