Humans have 100,000 hairs on their head. Losing about 80-100 hairs on average days isn’t noticeable. Hair loss can be permanent or temporary. Hair loss is most commonly diagnosed as a type of hereditary problem. If you have a family history, it is most likely you have this condition. There are many types of hair loss making it challenging to determine the cause. Keeping the pH value of the hair and scalp balanced at 5.5 is essential for the overall health of your hair. Healthy, well-groomed hair on the head is synonymous with well-being and self-awareness. Healthy hair only grows on a healthy scalp. By stabilizing the skin’s barrier in the area of the scalp, irritation can be avoided which, for example, can lead to overproduction of sebum. Maintaining at a mildly-acidic pH level in your hair and scalp will also help to keep the fungus and bacteria living naturally on your skin to stay dormant and inactive. We need and want our hair to be at the optimum health, as the cuticles will be closed and healthy, helping to support the strength and thickness of each individual strand and follicle, keeping your hair from falling out or becoming weak and thin.
Use lukewarm water to wash your hair and remember not to use too warm or hot water when washing your hair because it may cause your scalp to trigger more secretion of sebum.
Shampoos with a pH of 5.5 are therefore not only beneficial for the scalp but also provide protection and care for the hair structure.
Use mild, slightly acidic shampoo to avoid electrostatic charges and excessively dry hair.
