You’ll need a shampoo with ingredients that hydrate deep down, while also nourishing, repairing and protecting your hair. Quinoa protein contains significant amount of amino acids, which restores moisture to dry and brittle hair, while the jojoba protein improves the appearance and restores the suppleness of hair.

5 hair care tips to improve your routine

In addition to using products adapted to your hair type, follow these five tips to improve your hair care routine:

1. Pay attention to your scalp.

When washing your hair, first gently rub the scalp (you don’t want to encourage excess sebum production), then attack the strands. Use lukewarm water, not hot.

2. Rinse your hair thoroughly.

Always rinse liberally to remove any shampoo and conditioner residues. Badly rinsed hair will be duller.

3. Only brush dry hair.

Avoid brushing your hair when it’s wet. Wet hair is more fragile and likely to break. For the same reason, do not dry your hair by rubbing it with a towel. Instead, blot it gently. Finally, do not wrap your hair in a towel.

4. Brush your hair everyday.

Daily brushing is important. It helps spread natural oils through the hair, clears the scalp of impurities and removes strands that are ready to fall. Do it morning and evening, but be gentle!

5. Use your heating accessories sparingly.

Avoid blow-drying or straightening your hair every day. When blow-drying, keep the hair dryer moving and not too close to the head (about 15 cm away). Let your hair air-dry from time to time.

Still not sure about your hair type or what products to use?
