Dull, lifeless hair
The inner part of a hair strand, also known as the cortex, is primarily composed of keratin and makes up 80% of the hair.
Some of these factors can cause hair to lose some of its ability to store moisture. As a result, the hair becomes prone to breakage and looks brittle.
Don't colour-treat your hair too often. Frequent bleaching will leave your hair dry and brittle.
And this technique takes some getting used to, but it pays off: Briefly rinse your hair with cold water after washing. This will close the outer cuticle layer, leaving your hair radiant and shiny.
Don't underestimate the impact of hard water! Lime residue can build up in your hair and weigh it down. To eliminate hard water buildup in your hair, mix a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar or lemon juice with a litre of cool water and rinse your hair with the mixture after washing.
After shampooing, make sure you rinse your hair thoroughly. As a little test to make sure you've rinsed properly, carefully run your fingers through your hair after rinsing. If your hair 'squeaks', the residue is gone! The following rule of thumb is also easy to remember: It should take five times as long to rinse your hair as it did to lather it.
Use conditioner regularly. lavera conditioners create a protective seal around the cuticle of the hair. This makes the hair smoother and allows it to reflect more light, making it appear shiny and radiant. One beneficial side effect: Your hair loses less moisture and is less prone to breakage.
Get your hair trimmed regularly to prevent split ends.
