The constant application of dyes, contamination or excessive use of dryers and tongs irreparably damage the hair. Therefore, there are several products that promise to restore it, to recover the shine and silkiness that hair has lost.
However, home remedies are also infallible and cost much less. A good mask gives the hair extra nutrition and counteracts the damage to which the hair is exposed.
Just as we take care of the skin and the skin of the body with moisturizing and exfoliating treatments, the hair also needs attention and care. Therefore, it is important to know what hair is made of, what type of shampoo it is convenient to use and what is the most recommended mask.
According to Ana María Sosa Reyes, professor of Faculty of Chemistry of the UNAM , the detergent of a good shampoo, which acts as a cleansing agent, should be able to remove excess fat, leaving just enough so that the hair is not dehydrated.
In relation to the PH, which is the measure of the degree of acidity or alkalinity of a solution, the hair has its maximum strength and looks brighter at a PH of between 4 and 6.
The detergent is one of the most important components in the shampoo, which leaves the hair slightly alkaline, so it is recommended to use rinses and conditioners that contain weak acids that allow to restore the PH, in addition to oils that prevent dehydration and they provide it with greater brightness.
Sosa Reyes thinks that the trick of the grandmothers who recommended the use of lemon or tomato to accommodate the hair, because both products are a bit acidic, works very well.
