HOW TO GET BEAUTIFUL HAIR

A guide to shiny, fresh and thick hair

Your hair is a great way to express who you are and, like the rest of your body, your hair is vulnerable to wear and tear, damage and dryness. A summer by the sea may be a wonderful holiday, but powerful UV rays as well as heavy exposure to salt and sand can damage your hair just as it can damage your skin. Colder seasons can also affect your hair, with dry air making your hair static and the cold giving it a flat appearance. Treat your hair well and it will radiate.

HOW TO GET THICKER HAIR

We are all born with a unique, fixed number of dermal follicles, determining how thick our hair can get for all our life. To maximise thickness, give your scalp a gentle massage every day to stimulate micro-circulation and wake up your roots. You can also apply the Body & Strength Scalp Essence.


A diet high in healthier fruits and vegetables can be beneficial to your hair. B vitamins, found in avocados, are thought to be the most important for hair growth. Blueberries are rich in vitamin C, which helps your body produce collagen, and squash contains vitamin A, which encourages sebum production.

HOW TO GET RID OF DANDRUFF 

WHAT CAUSES DANDRUFF?

“Dandruff” is actually an umbrella term for any affliction of the scalp that causes the skin cell on its surface to flake. In the case of true dandruff, the surface of the scalp contains an excess of a certain natural yeast, making the skin flake. Hair Care Experts suggest using an anti-dandruff shampoo to reduce dandruff and to sooth the scalp. Do still use conditioner, but only on the ends of your hair strands. Flaking can also be caused by insufficient rinsing, so be sure to rinse your hair thoroughly.

WHAT CAUSES DANDRUFF?

WHICH PRODUCT FOR WHICH TYPE OF DANDRUFF?

There are two types of dandruff: dry dandruff and oily dandruff. Dry dandruff is often linked to a dry scalp and an ill-adapted shampooing routine, whereas oily dandruff is linked to other factors such as stress. L’Occitane has designed a special Anti-Dandruff Shampoo that treats both kinds of dandruff. For dry dandruff, it is also recommended that you use this shampoo in addition to using Soothing Scalp Oil before shampooing, to ensure your scalp doesn’t dry out any more.

HOW TO HEAL DAMAGED HAIR SUBJECT TO BREAKAGE 

DRY HAIR ENEMIES

Your hair is very sensitive, and if it undergoes a lot of stress, it can actually begin to break and lose its suppleness. Your hair is most damaged by heat and dryness—crimpers, hair curlers, hair straighteners, dyes and colouring, excessive and overly hot blow drying, and even sunlight dry out and damage your hair. Avoid hair styling appliances that apply heat directly onto your hair, or don’t use them daily. When you do use heat styling tools, protect your hair with a Heat-Protective Control Mist. Remember to protect your hair from the sun, just as you protect your skin, with a Sun Protection Mist.
