Hair And Pollution: What Is The Result Of The Mixture?
Hello girls, happy Wednesday! We only have two days left, and it will be the weekend. That’s good. Well, while the weekend does not come, how about talking about a topic that is very important but that we sometimes overlook: Pollution on our hair.
We, who live in the city, clean our face with cotton to see the dirt that accumulates on our skin because of pollution. The same happens in our hair, but these aggressions are not appreciated until our hair loses life and dries up.
Hair And Pollution: The Challenge To The Health Of Our Hair
As we have said, the presence of pollution particles, with a mixture of metals, acids and other elements harmful to health, is constant.
The contamination misbehaves on our hair and the scalp. And, in each of them, it works differently. Because it is an extension of the skin, the scalp can have its pores clogged by the mixture of sebum naturally produced in its glands and dirt particles.
The result of this, besides a greasy appearance, can be itching, scaling, and even hair loss. As for the hair, the presentation is of a dull hair, aged, that is easily entangled, and without movement.
The contamination is more severe for those women who have oily hair although we should not think that only those who have greasy hair will be affected by pollution. We all suffer.
How Can We Prevent Pollution From Damaging Our Hair?
Use styling cream with UV filters. The cream prevents frizz and helps to untangle the hair, so it will leave the hair more soft and manageable, at the same time that its sun protection factor will create a barrier protecting it from the Sun and other external aggressions. Girls, I remind you that it is essential to use sunscreen on our hair all year round and not only during the summer.
Hydration at home. It is not the same to be in a forest than in the city. In the countryside, the hair absorbs the natural moisture of nature, but in the town absorbs moisture full of pollution. We must avoid it by moisturizing the hair at home so that it does not seek moisture from the contaminated air. How? Once a week applies a moisturizing mask, wrap the hair in a towel and let stand 30 minutes so that all the nutrients penetrate well.
Capillary oxygenation. This hair treatment should be part of all beauty routines. Caring for the scalp is the key to good health and image of our hair. If the root, where it is born, is not clean it is impossible for the hair to grow because the dirt (pollution, pollution, toxic agents) prevents it. The solution is a Capillary Oxygenation to decongest and oxygenate the root causing cellular regeneration and the growth of a new hair much more beautiful and robust.
