At the table: what to eat for healthy hair

In rotation: meat and fish (hair keratin is made of cysteine and lysine, two amino acids), eggs (they are rich in Biotin and vitamin A which strengthen the hair), nuts and vegetable oils, valuable sources of essential fatty acids that regularize sebum production.

Deep and gentle cleansing

Nowadays, due to air pollution, hygiene needs to be particularly scrupulous and people should not be shy with washings. But be careful! It is very important to choose non-aggressive products, with plant-derived surfactants. Otherwise, the risk is to damage the physiological lipid film that covers the hair cuticle, i.e. the “tile” coating that forms the first and most effective protective barrier against smog and harmful substances. Once damaged, this coating makes hair look weak and dry. In other words, do not save on the shampoo: it really is the first beauty factor for your hair.

Protection while styling

If your hair is damaged, pay attention to heat. Especially if you use a flat iron or curling iron, you should firstly protect the lock applying a protective oil, such as Biokap Bellezza Repairing and Restructuring Oil. Rice Fitokeratin-based, it gives shape to the hair and prevents split ends.

For a perfect hairstyle

You can get at home the same perfect hairstyle as at the salon, you will only have to follow a few rules. After washing and towel drying your hair, comb it with a wide tooth comb, then dry it with the diffuser. Have you got long hair? In order to give it more volume, use the hairdryer with your head down. Be careful not to touch your hair too much with your hands in order not to flatten it.

Greasy hair: the right hair cut can help

If you have greasy hair, then you are probably never satisfied with your haircut, as after a few hours sebum weighs your hair down. But fortunately fashion meets your needs: today a layered or fringe haircut is trendy. During the styling try not to exceed with the gel but prefer dry resins, as mousses or fixing hairsprays.

When hair loss needs to be monitored

Each person has around 100/150,000 hairs, which grow about 10-13 mm per month. It is normal for the hair to fall and a healthy person normally loses 50 to 80 hairs per day. The alarm rings when the number exceeds one hundred.

Main causes of hair loss

If you notice an excessive hair loss, try to find the cause in order to counteract it in the right way. Consider that the main causes of hair loss can be:

  • Deficiency of important nutrients for the hair and difficulty of microcirculation: if the hair bulb is less nourished, the hair grows less strong and falls more easily;
  • Hormonal imbalances in both men and women;
  • Damage to the hair bulb caused by free radicals.

Hair loss in men

Many recent studies have confirmed that a major contributor to hair loss in men (about 80% of cases) is an excess amount of DHT (dihydrotestosterone), which originates from the transformation of testosterone by the enzyme 5-α-reductase and atrophies the hair bulb, leading to hair loss

Hair loss in women

In addition to a deficiency of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients, in women as well hair loss can be linked to hormonal imbalances, emphasized in particular periods such as menstruation, breastfeeding and menopause, when the estrogen level decreases.
