PATRICIA'S 10 TIPS
Discover the 10 key steps to take to care for your hair every day.
1- WASH YOUR HAIR 2 TO 3 TIMES A WEEK
Washing your hair too often or even every day is not good because it removes the natural oils from the scalp and makes the hair dry and dull.
2- WASH YOUR HAIR PROPERLY
Wet your hair well, don't use too much shampoo and rinse well between each wash. Always do 2 shampoos: the first one washes and the second one treats !
3- MASSAGE YOUR SCALP AND DO NOT RUB IT
When shampooing, massage it in a circular motion.
4- WASH YOUR HAIR WITH WARM WATER
Water that is too hot will damage and re-grease the hair. Finish with a jet of cold water to close the scales.
5- APPLY THE SHAMPOO ON YOUR SCALP...
... and not on the lengths !
When rinsing, the shampoo will end up on your tips, which will be enough to wash them and not dry them out further.
6- YOUR HAIR NEEDS CONDITIONER/MASK
Apply it to your lengths and tips to deeply nourish and moisturize them and make your hair shinier. Do not apply it to your scalp !
7- RESPECT THE PAUSE TIME OF YOUR TREATMENTS !
Apply your care on your long hair well wrung out for a better penetration. When you apply a conditioner, leave it on for 1 to 2 minutes then rinse thoroughly. For a mask, the application time will be a little longer: 5 to 10 minutes.
8- DRY YOUR HAIR WITHOUT RUBBING IT
Wrap them in an ultra-absorbent towel, dab and squeeze.
9- DETANGLE YOUR HAIR PROPERLY
Brush your hair morning and night. Use a quality soft brush with a leave-in detangler.
10- MOISTURIZE YOUR HAIR DAILY
Use a serum on your tips to nourish and protect them.
TAKE CARE OF YOUR HAIR
I AM LOSING MY HAIR, WHEN SHOULD I WORRY ?
It is normal to lose hair. Hair is renewed throughout our lives, and has a lifespan of 3 to 5 years. We can lose between 50 and 100 hairs per day, so this should not be a cause for concern. On the other hand, when hair loss becomes greater, the lost hair cannot be replaced as quickly and this causes a decrease in hair mass. In this case, hair loss must be treated with a special anti-hair loss routine for 3 months.
WHAT IS A POROUS HAIR?
The porosity of hair is its ability to absorb moisture. Porous hair is characteristic of dry hair. We observe a high degree of porosity in hair when it is damaged (by bleaching, coloring, heating appliances, etc.). It absorbs water but rejects it immediately, which explains its lack of hydration. Finally, porous hair takes a long time to dry and is also sensitive to humidity and therefore to frizz. Tip: use a mask once or twice a week to moisturize your hair and close the scales.
WHICH ROUTINE SHOULD I ADOPT FOR MY FINE HAIR ?
When you have fine to very fine hair, you should not overload your hair but moisturize it gently. After shampooing, it is preferable to use a leave-in detangler on the lengths to avoid weighing down the hair. As for masks, they should be used once every 10 days after shampooing for deeper hydration. It is important to choose a mask with a light texture for all hair types. In this case, do not use conditioner or detangling care.
I HAVE AN OILY SCALP AND DRY ENDS, WHICH SHAMPOO SHOULD I USE ?
It is important to dissociate the scalp from the lengths. If you have an oily scalp, you need to use a shampoo that is adapted to this type of problem, since it will purify your scalp. Choose a natural shampoo for oily scalp, without sulfates to avoid damaging it and stimulating sebum production even more. Also avoid shampoos that contain silicones because they clog the pores of the scalp and will also cause an overproduction of sebum in reaction. Tip: When rinsing your shampoo, don't use water that is too hot because it stimulates the sebaceous glands. Instead, use lukewarm water. The hair dryer also stimulates the production of sebum: make sure to keep a distance of 30cm when you dry your hair and choose a low temperature. It's best to let your hair air dry.
