“WITHprotect and not spoil ”- this is the main motto of the owners of thin, brittle hair. How to take care of them so as not to harm? 7 golden rules from hairdresser-stylist Evgeny Shatokhin.
Rule # 1: use a sulfate-free shampoo
Thin hair is most often prone to oily – it quickly gets dirty at the roots. To make the strands look neat, they need to be washed more often. Sulfate shampoo can dry out the scalp, causing flaking. Our body works on a compensatory basis. The drier the scalp, the stronger the secretion. Consider this!
Rule # 2: do not use oils every day
Oil with daily use can weigh fine strands. And this, in turn, provokes loss. Look for products that are labeled “for fine hair.”
Rule # 3: do not overuse masks with hydrolyzed proteins
Hydrolyzed proteins are a great way to fill in the gaps under the scales and deal with split ends. But, if overused, the proteins stick to the hair, making it heavier. As a result – loss.
Rule # 4: cleanse your scalp regularly
Deep cleansing shampoos and peels should be your best friend. They help cleanse hair and scalp from styling residues, excess sebum, heavy metal salts.
Rule # 5: choose light styling
Strong fixing is not your option. Laying should be light. In addition, styling should provide extra volume at the roots. Typically, this information is on the packaging.
Rule # 6: do not use dry shampoos regularly
Dry shampoo is a great way to freshen up your hair and add volume at the roots. But they cannot be abused. Regular use of such products is a sure way to dryness, the consequences of which we have already discussed.
Rule # 7: apply conditioner, matching your hair type
“For oily hair” is not an empty phrase. The compositions may indeed differ. Conditioners for oily hair, for example, have less oils. Consider this when going for beauty shopping.
