Hair Care Women
Beautiful, healthy hair is an important component of personal well-being. Since early history, shiny, thick hair has been considered a mark of beauty and attractiveness for women, as well as for men. Whether short or long hairstyle, curly or straight strands, the right care is extremely important for every hair type to keep hair healthy and strong in the long term.
A complete hair care includes not only shampoo and conditioner, but also the right way of washing, blow-drying and styling your hair. It is important to know which products are the right ones for which hair conditions. Your hair care must therefore be perfectly matched to the hair type.
Split ends & hair breakage
Long hair in particular often suffers from split ends, which can look like tiny fir trees. Instead of smooth, shiny lengths, the hair often appears dull and straw-like and unkempt. With split ends, it comes down to a regular, high-quality moisture supply. Split ends can be caused by various factors: lack of care, chemical coloring, rubbing of the hair ends against shoulders and back, perming, frequent use of straighteners and curling irons, sun or UV radiation, too hot blow-drying and also too hot hair washing. As a result, the hair loses moisture and dries out. Unfortunately, split ends cannot be reversed by means of products. There are oils and serums that can "fix" split ends in the short term, but in the long term only cutting and preventing them with the right products will help. Some hair salons offer split ends cutting, and there are several methods to do this. A common one is the use of hot scissors, which also seal the hair ends at the same time, and should protect against further split ends.
Thin hair, thinning hair & hair loss
Normally, the diameter of healthy hair is 0.05 to 0.07mm. When the diameter becomes 0.04mm or less, it is called "thin" hair from a scientific point of view. In general, it can also be said that light hair is thinner than dark hair. The thickness of the hair is determined by genetics and unfortunately there are no products that can "make the hair thicker" per se. However, with the right care from the outside and well-chosen supplements from the inside, you can strengthen and nourish your hair to make it look healthy and shiny. With cosmetic tricks as well as the right and nourishing styling products, you can conjure up a voluminous hairstyle even with thin hair. For fine and thin hair, for example, there are special mousses that push the hair and make it look more voluminous. When using shampoos and conditioners, always make sure that they are light and do not weigh down the hair. Blow drying hair upside down is also a clever trick for instant volume! Something more classic is the teasing of the hair, which we still know from grandmother's times. However, this should only be done every now and then, as the hair is often difficult to detangle afterwards. Rather only tease your hair for special occasions and updos. If your hair becomes visibly thinner and even falls out, then medical advice should be sought to rule out a serious disease, e.g. of the thyroid gland or problems with hormone balance. Certain medications can also be responsible for sudden or gradual hair loss. Sometimes it can occur due to an undersupply of vitamins and minerals. Our hair roots need vitamins such as A, C, E and biotin, niacin and panthotenic acid as well as trace elements such as zinc, iron and copper. Those who cannot take in these nutrients sufficiently with their diet (vegetables, fruit, whole grain products, red meat, eggs...) should resort to a dietary supplement in capsule form. It is important to choose the right dosage in order not to exceed the recommended daily dose.
What's better: combing or brushing?
It is best to detangle the hair slowly with a coarse-toothed comb after washing it when wet. This is definitely gentler on the hair structure than using a brush. Brushes are more suitable for dry hair.
What are silicones in hair products and are they good or bad?
Silicones are artificial additives in shampoos, conditioners, serums and hair masks. Unfortunately, these silicones deposit on the hair and prevent the absorption of active conditioning agents. Therefore, it is better to choose silicone-free hair products.
Can I use a hair conditioner 2-3 times a week?
You should always follow the instructions on the packaging. Very rich masks can only be used every fortnight and still have a great conditioning effect. If you use treatments and masks too often, the hair may become weighed down by the excess of care substances and thus look limp and weak.
I use shampoo and conditioner daily, but my hair always looks greasy. What am I doing wrong?
The hair care products are probably too rich. In this case, it is advisable to switch to a lighter product range. Washing every day stimulates the sebum production of the hair roots, in which case it would be advisable to wash the hair only every 2 days.
How much shampoo should I use when washing my hair?
Usually a hazelnut-sized amount is sufficient. Allow to foam up slightly and then rinse well with lukewarm water.
