Shampoos for scalp health
It’s the scalp that determines the choice of shampoo.
“Even if it’s preferable to be advised by a professional to benefit from an accurate diagnosis
(the condition of the scalp changes according to stress, weather, styling habits, diet, etc.).
I recommend looking at the roots in the mirror: are they oily, dry, dandruff, normal?
Is the skin red? We can also rely on our feelings: does the scalp itch?
Is it tight? “When you have identified the problem, choose a specific shampoo,
which you can alternate with another shampoo,” explains Sylvie of the Leonor Greyl Institut.
Is the root oily or devitalized? Opt for the cleansing treatment Huile Germe de Blé.
Hair loss? Alternate a mild shampoo with Concentré Énergétique, an anti-aging treatment
for devitalized hair.
Itching and dandruff? Here, the best ally is the Bain Traitant à la Propolis.
Sensitive, dry, or irritated scalp? The Crème aux Fleurs is ideal for soothing.
If your scalp is oily, if you exercise regularly, it’s particularly hot or if your roots need
a boost, choose Bain TS Shampoo.
If you have no particular problem, choose Shampooing au Miel, the Lait lavant à la Banane
or the Bain Volumateur aux Algues, gentle products with a volumizing effect.
If your hair is dry, thick or curly, use the Shampooing Crème Moelle de Bambou
to hydrate and soften it.
If they are colored and dehydrated, fine and brittle, choose the Shampooing Reviviscence
or the Bain Vitalisant B if they lack volume.
If you have highlights, use Shampooing Sublime Mèches to maintain their shine.
Sylvie’s advice for a successful shampoo:
* The preparation counts as much as the shampoo itself.
Use a boar bristle brush on the lengths,
a natural material that absorbs pollution, dust, pollen and untangles the hair
well before shampooing to avoid creating any knots.
If it’s hard water or if you decide to perform a deep treatment,
apply Huile de Leonor Greyl in small quantities on the lengths.
Then brush again to distribute the oil evenly throughout the hair.
Do you have a little spare time? Leave on for 15 minutes. * Thoroughly wet the scalp
and the lengths.
This will create a sufficient lather, necessary to properly remove sebum residues.
Apply the shampoo by starting with the temples and the outline of the face,
then the skull and the nape of the neck.
Emulsify by adding lukewarm water in small quantities as you go. Slide the foam
over the lengths, without adding shampoo, this is enough to wash them.
A mask for the beauty of lengths
The mask is applied on the length and ends.
Therefore, we select our mask according to not only the condition but also
to the nature of our hair.
If they are dry, weak, brittle, choose the Masque Quintessence.
To enhance or protect the color, the Crème de Soin à l’Amarante is perfect.
Crème Régénératrice pampers dry and damaged hair ;
the Masque Fleurs de Jasmin beautifies fine hair without weighing it down,
while the Masque à l’Orchidée is formulated to soften thick or curly hair.
Sylvie’s advice for applying the mask:
* After having thoroughly rinsed the shampoo, wring the lengths with a towel
to remove the maximum amount of water.
Why? Because water creates a “barrier” that hinders the penetration
of the treatment.
* Then apply your mask in small quantities on the lengths.
Leave time to comb to untangle and soften the fiber.
Then rinse for 3 to 4 minutes to remove any residue.
Tip: if your hair is very dry and damaged, rinse your mask only ¾ to let it act
for a longer period.
