HOW TO WASH THE SCALP WHILE WASHING YOUR HAIR
To use as mild as possible shampoo, the little color, fragrance. Or contain preservatives. Avoid silicones (stick the scalp pores)
WHAT CAN HAIR PROBLEMS OCCUR WITH THE WRONG SHAMPOO?
The hair can become straw, dry or brittle and stick together if they are over-degreased. If the cleaning power of the shampoo is too low, the hair fats too quickly. In the case of the very sensitive scalp or in the presence of true allergies, scalp problems may also occur (redness, scaling, itching). In particular, parabens or substance Cocamidopropylbetain as ingredients of shampoo’s can cause allergies!
HOW OFTEN DO YOU RECOMMEND WASHING YOUR HAIR? DO DIFFERENT HAIR TYPES NEED TO WASH DRY / OILY / FINE HAIRS DIFFERENTLY?
We recommend that you do not wash your hair too often (about 2x – 3x / week or even less often). The faster the hair greases and the finer they are, the earlier the need for rewarming arises.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO INFER THE FREQUENCY OF HAIR WASHING FROM THE SKIN TYPE? THIS MEANS: NORMAL TO SLIGHTLY DRY FACIAL SKIN WASH HAIR ONCE OR TWICE A WEEK. WASH OILY FACIAL SKIN MORE OFTEN. IS THAT CORRECT?
Yes, to a certain extent, this inference is possible: the sebaceous glands of the skin and scalp are at a similar level of activity. This means the greasier / oily the skin on the face, the faster the hair usually fats!
The scalp and hair dry out too quickly because the physiologically protective fatty film is removed again and again. That can lead to consequence; that the hair loses its suppleness and elasticity; yes it can come to long-term damage to a horny coat of hair so that it breaks off earlier. This can irritate the scalp and develop redness and dry scaling. In the long term, this stimulates the fat production of the sebaceous glands, because they notice that the protective layer of fat is always removed immediately. So the hair gets fatter faster!
Curly hair is stronger from the root than fine, straight hair. No, the hair does not grease less, but it is less noticeable when strong, stubborn hair is hairy than thin, fine hair! The latter tend to stick together or clap on the scalp.
HOW DO YOU WASH YOUR HAIR ESPECIALLY GENTLY?
Important for the hair wash is that not too hot water is used for hair washing! This will decrease the hair and scalp too much. It is better to wash your hair with lukewarm water. Another advantage is the use of the mildest possible shampoo, which is colorless, fragrance-free and low in preservatives. Many people lather their hair twice in a row with shampoo; it is better and gentler to wash your hair only once! During the procedure, the shampoo should be massaged into the scalp with light fingertip pressure for about 2 minutes: this opens the scalp pores; the circulation of the scalp is stimulated and dead skin particles, scales and shed hair are removed from the scalp.
