It’s common knowledge that the way to rapidly change your style, to improve the mood and to follow fashion trends is to pay attention to hairstyle.
Experiments with haircuts and styling do not always appear to be harmless for the health and the general state of your hair. They represent one of the factors that cause the development of split ends, dull colour, alopecia (severe hair loss) and other haircare problems that most women face. Beyond doubt, these problems occur due various reasons: unsuitable hair cosmetics, aggressive components that such products contain, unfavourable impact of external factors, state of health, etc. The quality of cosmetic products is based on the quality of the ingredients they contain. By choosing natural cosmetics containing organic oils and extracts you are sure to obtain high-quality and safe products intended to preserve your beauty.
Let us have a look at the key haircare steps.
Pay attention to the ingredients to make sure you choose a shampoo that does not contain such harmful components as SLS, SLES (responsible for cleaning), parabens (PEG, aggressive preservatives and emulsifiers) and silicon. A demanding buyer can, if willing, select a shampoo based on soft cleaning agents. You’d better always make sure that you have a scope of different products on your bathroom shelf: try alternating a Delicate Care product and a Damage Repair product, for example.
It is crucial to use a shampoo that is appropriate for your hair type. If you have oily hair, a balanced shampoo will contribute to the normalization of sebaceous glands functions; if you have mixed hair, combine products for different hair types or use a ready recipe such as Karité butter.
A balancing Karité shampoo is a perfect product to normalize scalp hydro-lipid balance.
“Green” (which means natural) new generation cleaning agents help design a shampoo that would be not only good for your hair, but also easy to use: sufficient quantity of foam, high cleaning capacity and no destruction of the natural protective layer of the hair surface.
2. Moistening and Nourishing
In order to maintain hair beautiful and healthy, special balms and hair masks should be used. Some people believe that nothing is better than a home-made product. This is debatable, however: the world around us has changed and new opportunities should not be neglected. By using cosmetic products created by professionals, you will discover new beauty resources. Heating appliances, styling and the lack of vitamins directly affect our hair. That is why such express hair-care measures as applying a balm or a mask after you have washed your hair can help maintain it in good condition and prepare it for further styling. The Moistening and Nourishing step is important for all hair types. Despite the pre-conception that exists, oily hair also requires the use of special nourishing hair products.
