Washing your hair with hot water, regularly using a hairdryer or flat iron, going through constant coloring processes, working in air-conditioned environments… And even exposure to the sun and diving in the sea or pool. All of this has an impact on the health of the hair. But even if none of these steps are part of your routine, you should know that hair naturally loses nutrients and water all the time. The solution to prevent excessive damage is to take care to replace what is lost. And that’s exactly why the hair schedule exist.
We will explain what this schedule is and how you can do it at home, step by step, without complications.
To have healthy strands, you must adopt a care routine that hydrates, nourishes and rebuilds. And care should also extend to the scalp.
Hair, on average, is made up of 90% keratin. Keratin is a protein, with 21 amino acids in its structure, which is why the hair needs regular reconstruction.
But that’s not all: water, glutamic acid, lipids and glycogen are also essential for the hair’s vitality.
What is the hair schedule?
And how can I make mine?
The capillary schedule is a hair care schedule that restores strands and promotes your health. It exists to treat, one by one, each hair need. In a simple summary, it consists of a routine that includes 3 stages, alternating – this care nourishes, restores and rebuilds the wires.
To begin with, you should assess the real state of your hair, to identify your needs. For example: elastic, dull, fragile and brittle threads need a deep repair program, which can never be done in isolation, without the contribution of other steps.
The step by step of the different capillary schedules is simple and you can follow them at home. Let’s know how? Well, look.
Hair schedule at home in 3 steps
The ideal is to organize a capillary agenda interspersing the 3 stages: hydration, nutrition and reconstruction. The order varies from hair to hair, according to need.
For example: if we have brittle, elastic and porous hair, we should always start with reconstruction – so, the order will be: reconstruction – hydration – nutrition.
You should initially identify your hair’s greatest need and focus more on a specific stage.
Damaged strands, which are armed, are opaque and lackluster, too dry and tangle easily when wet, need water – that is, hydration.
Make several, as many as you want, as long as you meet a minimum interval of 48 hours between them.
Porous, weightless and frizzy hair essentially needs nourishment and moisture.
You can complete this step once a week, or fortnightly.
Important: Nutrition complements the hydrationtherefore, it should always be done after a deep hydration step.
If your hair goes through regular chemical processes, such as coloring or straightening, rebuilding is very important. Initially, do it once a week – and until the threads become more resistant -, but then you can dedicate yourself to this step at longer intervals, every 15 days.
I don’t dye my hair or go through other chemical processes. How do I know if my greatest need is hair reconstruction?
It’s simple: natural hair that has split ends, thin, brittle and more elastic is hair that needs this step. Chemical-free hair should only undergo reconstruction once a month.
What care should I have with the reconstruction of the wires?
Excess keratin can cause damage to the wires, so you shouldn’t use reconstruction products too often. Stick to weekly and then biweekly or monthly intervals.
Intersperse reconstruction with nutrition and hydration steps. Hair undergoing reconstruction needs water and oil.
Always follow the 3 steps
One of the most common mistakes when taking care of strands – even for those who already follow a careful hair care routine – is to dedicate themselves to only one of the stages of the hair schedule. In other words, use only nutrition creams or amino acids. The result is that the hair is always lacking in some form.
Correctly assess the actual state of the hair and define what your greatest need is, but don’t neglect the 3 steps of care in your capillary schedule – one is complementary to the other.
Whenever the hair needs capillary reconstruction, it is mandatory that the other stages of the capillary schedule are fulfilled – and do not forget: Nutrition must come after hydration, as it will collaborate so that the strands are able to retain everything they need, in the most suitable way.
Your hair schedule, step by step
- Use the shampoo twice, always with lukewarm water. Don’t forget to massage the scalp, but only with the palm of your hand – never use your fingertips.
- After each wash, remove all excess product and dry the hair very well with a towel.
- Now it’s time to apply your chosen mask to each strand of hair – massaging from the mid-lengths to the ends.
- Comb the hair with a brush that has flexible bristles.
- Use a thermal cap to let the mask work on the hair for approximately 10 minutes.
- Remove all the product with lukewarm water.
- Dry again with the towel.
- Apply your conditioner and let it act for 3 minutes.
- Rinse very well.
Extra tips for your hair schedule
- Use the appropriate shampoo (dry/sensitive/oily). Don’t forget that you should use some anti-residue shampoo if, on a daily basis, you apply finishing products or leave in – the ideal is to do this once a week.
- Exfoliate your scalp monthly. This will help eliminate dead cells, preventing imbalances and inflammation.
