Establishing the Right Hair Care Routine
Establishing the right hair care routine is very important for hair to be at its best. All hair types need three essential elements to grow and stay healthy: water, oil, and protein. The amount of water, oil, and protein needed varies depending on the hair type and situation. Some hair types need more water because of porosity levels, while others might need more protein when the level of damage is higher than usual. Overall, hair needs the three elements on a rotating schedule to receive precisely what it lacks.
The three elements that all hair needs:
“Up to 60% of the human adult body is water.” (Science of Changing World) Even hair is partially composed of water and it is what helps it grow and keep it soft. The roots are soaked in water as it goes through your circulatory system which keeps the strands hydrated. Hair has the ability to be moisturized by the water in the environment, which is why in humid conditions it becomes frizzy as it absorbs water from the air.
The natural oil produced by the scalp has the function of constantly nourishing the follicles and the strands. Oil adds shine and smooths down the strands. Longer hair faces trouble nourishing the strands all the way to the ends, brushing down the oils helps them get there.
Hair strands are mainly made up of a protein called Keratin. When hair goes through a lot of stress such as heat, perms, relaxation, or any other chemical treatments, the cuticles get weak, open up, and lose all the water and nutrients that are stored inside of them. Protein is what gives hair volume and strength.
Identifying what your hair needs:
Hair feels dry and brittle when it’s missing water. Hair can absorb water from the environment, but it also needs to store it inside the strands to save that hydration. Replenishing the strands with moisture-locking ingredients such as Panthenol and sugar can help keep the hair moisturized and soft at all times. The Hair Routine’s Moisture treatment moisturizes the hair and stimulates the scalp with a formulation of comforting ingredients that includes grapeseed oil and soothing lavender-lemon scents while replenishing water in the hair fibre. This treatment includes moisture-locking ingredients such as glacial water, sucrose, pro-vitamin B5, meadowfoam seed, sweet almond, olive, and coconut oils. It hydrates deeply from the roots to the ends giving strands silkiness, elasticity, and smoothness.
When hair gets frizzy and loses its shine, it most likely needs to be replenished with nourishing oils. Avoid washing out the natural oil produced by the scalp and rather keep it nurture with a treatment that keeps the strands defined and with a healthy glow. The Nurture treatment rebalances the hair oils with a lustrous formula made of sunflower seed, avocado, argan, evening primrose, grapeseed, and olive oils, shea butter, ginseng, and rosehip extracts.This treatment deeply nourishes the hair while the de-frizz system leaves it shiny and defined. A combination of grapefruit, ylang-ylang, and bergamot essential oils promote hair growth.
Hair feels weak and brittle when it’s missing out on protein. Take a strand from your hair and stretch it slowly as far as you can. If it stretches a lot without breaking then it has more elasticity than it should and should be replenished with protein. Repair hair with a treatment that restores hair mass. The Repair treatment has a unique formulation that includes regenerative ingredients such as keratin, oats, corn, wheat, soy proteins, and oat amino acids. Blended with cocoa butter, coconut oil, meadowfoam seed oil, vitamin E, panthenol, white nettle flower, ginseng, and gleditsia australis seed extracts to regain volume and strength.
