Haircare is the New Skincare: HYALURONIC ACID
For a long time there’s been an ongoing conversation about how to best treat your skin as you get older, but let’s shift focus a little bit to discuss how to best treat your hair as you get older. Believe it or not, there are ways we can learn from the skincare industry and apply it to haircare.
The founder of PHYTO PARIS, Mr. Patrick Alès, said “beautiful hair starts with a healthy scalp.” Since PHYTO PARIS believes your scalp is an extension of your skin, why not look into one of the most successful ingredients in skincare?
Introducing Hyaluronic Acid (HA for short).
WHAT MAKES HA SO SPECIAL?
Hyaluronic acid is a clear, gel-like substance that exists naturally in our bodies. It’s in our skin, our scalp, our gums, our eye sockets, and even works as a lubricant for our joints. It’s included in many skincare products because it helps retain collagen, a structural protein found in your skin, it increases moisture and can hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water, and it makes the skin look moisturized and plumped.
WHAT DOES THIS HAVE TO DO WITH MY HAIR?
All of the properties mentioned above are also beneficial to your scalp and hair. There are more than 100,000 hair follicles in your scalp and HA exists in the skin where your hair follicles are located. It’s there to hydrate and nourish the scalp, which lays the foundation for improved growth of your hair.
WHAT HAPPENS AS I AGE?
As you get older your scalp loses the ability to hold moisture, causing your hair to become dehydrated. Additionally, the older we get, the smaller our hair follicles become, resulting in thinner hair. Increasing the dosage of HA to your scalp can help you eliminate both of these problems and that’s why adding HA is so important.
PHYTO PARIS recently launched a collection called PHYTODENSIA that contains hyaluronic acid. That’s right, it might have taken you a long time to find a skincare product that fits your skin, but finding the right haircare product will be easy. Say hello to PHYTODENSIA PLUMPING SHAMPOO, PHYTODENSIA FLUID PLUMPING MASK, and PHYTODENSIA PLUMPING SERUM. Find them here. You won’t regret it.
