We women love our hair. Long or short, they show everyone else not only what we like, but also how we feel and many traits. For facial care, sports or clothes, we are happy to give you other tips, but the topic of hair is not so current and is neglected. Who else but yourself should know what our beautiful mane needs. From the styling to the hairdresser’s visit, we hold the helm in our hands. But more important than anything else is how we treat the hair in the shower. Honestly, do you know what’s in your shampoo? HederaVita takes you for a brief moment into Rapunzel’s world and tells you what you should rather keep your hands off. First of all:Shampoos with silicone.
What are silicones?
Silicones are chemically produced plastics. In these plastics, also called polymers, there are numerous mixed variants in the laboratories. Most companies are increasingly using lighter silicones thanks to many ailments such as itching or redness. Shampoos with heavy silicones were also difficult to wash off the hair.
This is how a shampoo with silicone affects our hair
If you take some time for a head massage under the shower, you know that the hair is more supple when you’re done. Those who use a shampoo with silicone, should be aware of the following: Shampoos with silicone can not penetrate into the hair cell , so you massaging more or less for nothing. Nevertheless, the hair may appear more supple and shiny, for a simple reason. Since the shampoo can not penetrate into the hair cell, it is simply sheathed. Although this may seem great for a short time, our mane will not benefit in the long run. One advantage is said: silicone can withstand a lot of heat! Whether with the hair dryer or straightener, by the sheathing, no damage can occur in the hair cells.
Sounds great? We have not revealed everything yet. Since the care of a shampoo with silicone can not penetrate into the hair, the hair is flat. Of course, styling and sprays can bring everything back into shape, but is that the purpose of a shampoo? Another point: hair, especially thin hair fat even faster back. This is exactly the problem faced by most people who use shampoos with silicones.
Should I use it anyway?
Basically, if you have more brittle and frizzy hair, your hair looks slightly better with light silicones. Important: The hair looks only better visually, so it is not maintained. Fine and rather powerless hair not only loses volume with a shampoo with silicone, it damages the hair cell massively.
We at HederaVita therefore recommend that you always use shampoos without silicones, no matter if you have fine or brittle hair. But before you run into the shower and throw away all your stock, we’ll show you which products you can use to not only replace your stock, but even top it!
PS Of course HederaVita has shampoo without silicone!
