What happens to our hair when we Shampoo & Condition it
This is about the shampooing process and how and what goes on with it. Each strand of hair has three layers; the cuticle, cortex and the Medulla .
The hair is Keratin, which is a hard protein. When we shampoo the hair it opens the cuticle scale which under a microscope actually looks like fish scales . To close the cuticle which is the outlayer of the hair, a conditioner needs to be added . So in basic terms terms; if the conditioner is not added or used over the top of the hair the cuticle is left open, this causes the hair to feel brittle and dry . When the hair is chemically treated it’s even dryer again. So that’s where your conditioners come into play. It’s essential that despite the thickness and the health of the hair we should always use conditioner. Another product to use at least once a week is a treatment, they help stop damage and help feed your hair with protein and moisture .
