8 mistakes to avoid in your haircare routine
What is the secret to beautiful hair? An appropriate haircare routine, daily brushing, a balanced diet and most importantly, good habits.
Most of us have gone out with damp hair without drying it properly or even cut our own hair, but these are not the only bad habits that need to be avoided…
Washing your hair too often
Of course your hair needs washing, but the key here is not too often. When cleansed too frequently, especially when accompanied by harsh movement (such as rubbing the scalp vigorously), it tends to irritate the scalp, which reacts by producing an excess of sebum to protect itself, resulting in hair that gets greasy more quickly.
Washing it with a gentle cleansing care every two days is more than enough. For an extra step with added purifying benefits, apply the Pre-Shampoo Purifying Mask With White Clay twice a week on your scalp for 10 minutes before shampooing.
The lack of regularity in your haircare routine
When it comes to haircare, having a regular routine works best.
The important thing is to combine several treatments together to provide the hair with everything it needs: an appropriate cleansing treatment for the type of hair, a balm with anti-split and anti-breakage action, and an oil to bring out its true brilliance.
Neglecting the scalp
While it is important to take care of your hair, it is just as essential to pay attention to the scalp. The Revitalizing Fortifying Serum For The Scalp contributes to creating a healthier scalp. Highly concentrated in plant-based extracts, proteins, vitamins and minerals, this treatment serum revitalizes the scalp and energises the hair for a more beautiful look. .
Brushing wet hair
While it is very tempting to brush and detangle your hair as soon as you get out of the shower, this may cause more harm than good to your hair as wet hair is more fragile and brittle which makes it more prone to breakage.
Gently dry your hair with a towel first before brushing and detangling it with a quality brush such as The Radiance Brush.
Using heated hair styling tools without protection
Heated hairstyling tools can cause damage to the hair when used every day. The solution? Use a protective treatment on the hair each time you need to use a hair straightener or a curling iron. The Cream 230, enriched with precious oils and the Complex 230, is a heat-activated leave-in treatment. It repairs, nourishes and protects the hair fibre up to 230°C / 450°F.
Regular colouring can damage and weaken the hair. To preserve the hair's beauty, adopt an appropriate coloured haircare routine with the Color Perfecting Shampoo With Hibiscus Flower Extract, designed to gently care for coloured and highlighted hair, prolonging the colour and making hair soft, shiny and beautiful.
Tying your hair too often
How often do we repeat the action of pulling your hair back and securing it with an hair tie, whether in a loose bun or in a ponytail, every day? Wearing your hair tied back all the time, however, harms its beauty and vitality. Remember to let it loose from time to time and don't forget to switch up the type of accessories used: scarf, hair grip, invisible elastic, etc...
Not protecting hair from the sun
Just as UV rays damage the skin, they can damage and weaken the hair. Therefore it is essential to apply suitable protection when spending long hours in the sun, especially during summer. The Hair Protective Fluid forms a protective film that guards the hair against the harmful effects of the sun, while also protecting it from sea and pool water. Its formula contains two sun filters for protection against UVA and UVB rays. The haircare fluid also acts on the hair to help make it look more shiny and beautiful.
