Hair care: the importance of using the right hair care products
Have you always dreamed of having thick, beautiful hair? Is your hair dull, dry, or damaged? Then it could use some extra care, especially given that damaged hair is more susceptible to breakage and shedding. This makes your hair even duller over time.
Blow-drying, straightening, curling, and colouring makes your hair look beautiful in the moment, but it causes serious damage in the long run. Did you know that repeatedly using the wrong brush can also damage your hair? You can always dry your hair on a cooler setting or forego the curling wand and straightener more often, but do you have to give them up completely?
What is damaged hair?
Each strand of hair is made up of several layers. The outermost layer is called the hair cuticle, which consists of overlapping scales – like the shingles on a roof – from root to tip. Healthy hair has smooth, overlapping cuticles. With damaged hair, the cuticles are raised or stripped away entirely, making the hair feel rough and brittle.
As damaged cuticles don’t lie flat, the hair is exposed and open. The result: weak, porous, and more vulnerable hair. The protective cuticle layer is missing, which leads to hair breakage and hair loss.
Hair care: the solution for damaged hair
We unintentionally damage our hair every day by brushing it too roughly, towel-drying it too vigorously, and using heat products. While most people are willing to carry out these everyday activities more consciously and more carefully, no one wants to give them up entirely.
That’s why it’s good to know there’s another solution for damaged hair: hair care products with the right ingredients.
Do you want to take your hair from dry and damaged to full and shiny without giving up your heat products or your trips to the salon? You can! The hair care routine below will give your damaged hair the nourishment it needs.
Start with a gentle clarifying shampoo with hydrating and nourishing properties. Ideally, use a sulphate-free shampoo that won’t dry out your hair. Mediceuticals® has various shampoos without these sulfates. While you wash, the cuticles will open, allowing the ingredients to penetrate deeply and cleanse your hair thoroughly. To close the cuticles again and prevent damage, always follow up with a conditioner.
Treatment for fine hair and hair prone to breakage
Before using conditioner, you can treat your hair with Volume&Strength designed specifically for fine or damage-prone hair. Massage a small amount of the product into towel-dried hair. Leave on for a few minutes before rinsing out. Special treatment products repair damaged cuticles and split ends. They also restore moisture, shine, and elasticity.
Nourishing and hydrating conditioner
After washing your hair, apply a conditioner to close the hair cuticle. Conditioner also nourishes the hair from the inside out, makes it easier to brush, and makes it less prone to tangles.
After rinsing out the conditioner, you can use Defend leave-in conditioner. This will protect your hair all day from UV radiation and air pollution, while leaving it hydrated and shiny.
Hairbrush that does not damage the hair
The effect of a brush through the hair is often underestimated. Did you know, for example, that brushing too hard can damage both the hair and the scalp? Therefore, always take the time to brush your hair and do this with the right brush. To protect the hair and scalp, you can choose the Mediceuticals® Scalpro hairbrush. This brush detangles the hair easily and glides effortlessly through the hair. In addition, the brush is made with silicone pins that help protect the scalp and hair.
Make hair care part of your daily routine
The right hair care routine will help you get the healthy, beautiful, and shiny hair of your dreams. Your hair has to endure a lot every day, which is why it deserves the best hair care products available: a mild shampoo and a nourishing conditioner will protect your hair against harmful environmental influences. You can also use a special treatment product or a leave-in conditioner for more intensive care.
