Taking care of your hair as much as your skin
On a daily basis, our skin and hair can face similar problems: heat or cold temperatures, pollution, dryness, dull color... That's why it's important to take care of your skin on the whole body as well as your head. We know that there are many things to think about and to buy, but taking care of yourself does not mean applying products morning, noon and night. Fewer but better products are the secret to a healthy body.
Hydratation : the key to healthy skin and hair
We can't tell you enough, hydration for wavy, curly, coily and kinky hair is essential for supple, strong and shiny hair: weekly moisturizers, daily moisturizing styling products and your average 1.5L of water per day. Your hair is very thirsty, just like your body.
Your skin will also need water and humectants to keep it supple and elastic and avoid dryness.
Our favorite ingredient and present in a large majority of Les Secrets de Loly's products will be aloe vera. Pure, you can apply it as a mask on your hair but also on your skin to moisturize it deeply.
Recipe for mask for wavy, curly, coily, kinky hair:
- 50ml of aloe vera
- 50ml of Sérum Croissance (or your favorite vegetable oil)
Mix everything in a bowl and spread the preparation on your clean and wet hair. Leave on for 20 minutes to 1 hour and then rinse. Feel free to increase the quantities proportionally according to your hair length.
Recipe face mask:
- 2 teaspoons of aloe vera
- 1 teaspoons of natural yogurt
Mix everything together in a bowl and spread the mixture over your clean face. Rinse with clear water after 10 minutes.
Quantity of product: avoid overdosing
For your hair, especially fine hair, too much product causes several reactions that are not very pleasant as a rule: cardboard effect or greasy effect. These effects are due to a surplus of active ingredients that are rejected and left on the surface of the fiber. The hair having recovered all the benefits it needs, it leaves the rest on the surface and the result is often average. If you are thinking of using little product but still have this problem, you should probably adapt your hair routine and perhaps make a transition. In any case, our expert can offer you a personalized diagnosis on Instagram.
The skin can react the same way, too much product or a cream not adapted and you end up with a slippery and shiny skin all day. Think about making a diagnosis and find the right day cream for your skin.
Healthy lifestyle: healthy and pleasant
We were talking about your daily 1.5L of water, but of course that's not all. A healthy diet, moments of pleasure, limiting stress... Taking care of yourself also involves relaxation and well-being on a daily basis. Because your skin and scalp react to your emotions.
