Some skincare actives have gone beyond skin care and are now migrating to haircare products, complementing scalp and hair care. In fact, just like the skin, hair also needs a specific care routine, always aiming at the health and well-being of the region.
Did you know that to keep your hair healthy and strong, the main care must be given to the skin of the scalp? To understand the needs of your hair and scalp, it is very important to consult a trichologist or dermatologist.
Regarding the skincare actives that have reached the haircare products, attention: skincare products cannot necessarily be applied directly to the hair. Understand below how actives can be found in specific hair products and how they act on this part of the body.
Aloe Vera is already known as a versatile active in different steps of the beauty routine. Also known as aloe, it can be applied directly to the scalp, helping to prevent hair loss. And of course, it can also be used on the lengths of the hair, acting as an anti-inflammatory and with a calming effect.
Hyaluronic acid is known for deeply moisturizing all skin types, in the right measure, besides reducing wrinkles, expression lines, and even dark circles under the eyes. In shampoos and creams, this popular active ingredient fills the hair fiber, controls frizz, reduces breakage, and even intensifies shine, leaving the hair properly hydrated.
The tip is to apply a mask with this active ingredient all over the hair before going to sleep – to wake up with impeccable and super hydrated hair the next day.
Rich in minerals that guarantee countless benefits to the skin, reinforcing hydration and the region’s natural defenses, thermal water can be sprayed directly on the hair, helping to restore hair strands, besides having moisturizing and anti-frizz action. This product can be used especially when you feel your hair more fragile after periods of exposure to the sun, sea, or pool.
If you used to use cocoa butter to recover dry and flaky skin on your lips, get ready to find it in the hair version, becoming an important active ingredient to help moisturize dry hair, controlling frizz, and increasing the production of proteins in the hair fiber.
