Is your hair dull, coarse and prone to breaking? Do you have split ends and difficulty detangling and managing your hair? Your hair is dry, and therefore weak. In the same way that your epidermis reflects the health of your skin, the cuticle, which is the outer layer of the hair, reflects the hair’s general health.
Healthy hair is protected by its cuticle’s scales, which are smoothed over the length of the hair shaft, and a surface hydrolipidic film, which protects the cuticle from dehydration.
The scales of the hair can lift up from the shaft, either naturally or as a result of external aggression (blow drying, hair colouring, perms, etc.), and the surface protective film becomes damaged.
When this happens, the damaged cuticle no longer assumes its protective role, and stressors (UV rays, pollution, wind, cold, etc.) attack the cortex, at the heart of the hair. The water naturally found in the hair evaporates, the keratin is deprived of its proteins, and the melanin is harmed.
The structure of dry hair is damaged at the heart and at the surface. Dehydrated and destructured, it becomes dull and coarse and tangles easily. If it is not looked after, the hair becomes fragile and breaks, and its ends split. Dry hair requires special care, applied regularly to restore its balance and to prevent dehydration.
The solution for dry hair nourishment and repair For greater anti-drying efficacy, dry hair treatment needs to act at the surface and deep within the hair. It needs to: nourish and restructure the hair deep down to restore its resistance, vitality and bounce; close the scales on the cuticle to make hair smoother and shinier; and restore the integrity of the surface hydrolipidic film to lastingly re-establish the hydration level of the hair fibre.
Offer your hair a course of nourishing KLORANE mango butter treatment...
A tree sacred to Hindus, the mango (Mangifera indica L.) has been cultivated in India for more than 4,000 years. It is a robust tree that can grow to between 100 and 130 feet tall. Its fruit, the mango, has a kernel that is particularly rich in essential fatty acids, from which mango butter is obtained by cold extraction.
KLORANE Laboratories have selected mango butter for its high concentration in ultra-nourishing fatty acids. It nourishes and restructures the hair shaft, smoothes down the scales of the hair and restores the integrity of the hydrolipidic film, which protects the hair from dehydration.
Results: dry hair is nourished and hydrated; it is repaired and restructured along its entire length, and therefore less prone to breaking and more resistant to brushing; it has a smoother surface, and therefore is softer and shinier; and it is protected, and therefore more resistant to external aggression, responsible for dehydration.
A hair care line specially formulated to restore dry hair The KLORANE hair care line with mango butter is made up of 4 products, designed to satisfy the needs of even the most damaged dry hair:
Nourishing treatment shampoo
Nourishing and untangling conditioning balm
Intense nutrition repair mask
Fluid and nourishing coating no-rinse care for dry and damaged ends
Their rich, particularly creamy and satiny textures leave the hair soft and shiny and easy to detangle without weighing it down. Even the most dehydrated hair is revitalized, and its natural beauty restored.
Dry hair: tips and pointers
Be gentle with your hair... just as you would be with your skin.
Avoid water that is too hot, too hard or too chlorinated, as it has a drying effect on the hair.
Use a large toothed comb, which smoothes the hair without traumatizing it, to untangle your hair before and after applying each hair care product.
To avoid damaging its protective scales, pat your hair dry with a towel without ever rubbing it, and say goodbye to harsh, rough brushing.
Beware of hot hair dryers: use them at their lowest setting, and avoid concentrating the heat on a single area for long periods of time.
Oxygenate your scalp
Massaging your scalp every day improves blood circulation, which will nourish the hair bulb, and stimulates the sebaceous glands to create an effective hydrolipidic film that will protect the hair from dehydration.
Improve your general state of health
Eat a balanced diet, being careful to vary your protein, vitamin and mineral intake. And spare a thought for food supplements.
Resign yourself to... extreme solutions!
Cut down on all forms of damaging hair treatment (blow drying, crimping, backcombing, etc.) to give your hair’s scales a chance to recover. If you have split ends, there is only one solution: cut them off, then treat the hair with specifically formulated products such as KLORANE Fluid and nourishing coating care with mango butter (follow the link above to find out more).
