Hair

Your hair is an important part of your beauty. Over our lifetime we have a "hair capital", estimated at approximately 200,000 hairs and each of these is conditioned to renew itself 20 times. It is therefore important to take care of our hair, in order to keep our capital in good health.

HOW TO REVITALISE OUR HAIR?

First, massage your scalp daily without moving your hair. This activates circulation, which brings vital nutrients to the hair. Next, wash your hair regularly but not excessively. Avoid overly aggressive shampoos and repeated blow-drying or perms. Brush your hair gently. Drink plenty of water and eat a healthy diet – vitamins and minerals are your hair’s best friends!
NAILS

Like your hair, your nails are essentially composed of keratin; therefore they need vitamins and trace elements to stay healthy.

5 TIPS FOR BEAUTIFUL NAILS !

1. Moisturize your nails
Ridged and brittle nails are actually victims of dehydration. To avoid this, moisturize them ! How ? Massage moisturizing cream into the base of your nails at least once a day. Result: the nail is more resistant to daily aggressions.

2. A balanced diet for beautiful nails!
To have beautiful nails, you must eat healthily. Why? Because they need different trace elements and vitamins to grow healthily. In other words, opt for foods rich in vitamin B (wheat germ, brewer’s yeast and egg yolks), vitamin C (fresh fruits, citrus fruits and green peppers),silicium (vegetables) and proteins (meat). Finally, avoid strict dieting which often leads to deficiencies.

3. Nails : nutritional supplements, yes please!
But watch out, don’t just take any old supplement, any which way!
Which to choose? Nutritional supplements rich in zinc. Because zinc contributes to the maintenance of normal hair.

4. Manicures : no abuse !
Manicures, fine, but under certain conditions! constantly cleaning below your nails can loosen them and increase the probability of fungal infections! Conclusion: clean your nails, but don’t dig!

5. Nail polish : don't go over the top.
Nail polish protects our nails from external aggressions. But you should always allow your nails time to breathe (without polish) and use an acetone-based nail polish remover. In terms of colours, it’s best to avoid darker colours as they can cause a yellow/orange discolouration of your nails which can only be remedied by re-growth.
