Types of hair and their care
We divide hair into several basic types. The simplest division is based on the amount of sebum secreted by the skin. This affects their hydration and quality. Each type requires appropriate, individual care.
Hair - how is it built?
Hair is a natural horny product of the epidermis. There are two parts of the hair: free hair and root. The hair itself consists of three layers: the core, the cortex and the cover. Genetics have the greatest impact on the appearance of hair, but our diet, sleep, lifestyle and exercise are also important.
Dry hair is hair with too little moisture. Due to the low amount of skin sebum secreted, they are not protected and water evaporates faster. Effect? Open cuticle and rough feel. Additionally, this type of hair lacks shine and is prone to static. Dry hair care should be based on hydration and regeneration. People with dry hair may also struggle with dry dandruff.
Oily hair is characterized by too much sebum secreted by the sebaceous glands. The result is a load on the hair and clogging of the skin pores, preventing air circulation. This type of hair is excessively moisturized and the cuticle is closed. Hair is easily drooped and out of shape. Caring for this type of hair should be based on gentle cleansing. Do not use strong agents so as not to cause the opposite effect, i.e. increased sebum production.
Normal hair - what are they characterized by?
Normal hair is characterized by an optimal amount of sebum secreted from the sebaceous glands. For this reason, the hair is shiny, but it does not get greasy quickly and does not tend to split ends. The hair is flexible and keeps its shape well. This type of hair is the rarest and does not require any special care measures.
Any type of hair can be damaged hair. It is enough to blow-dry, straighten or treat your hairstyle without tenderness. When going to bed, always pinch your hair up and, regardless of the type, oil it once a week.
