Children, get out the notebooks! Today it’s about brilliant achievements, the little hairdressing basics and your favorite subject trend customer.

1st lesson: active substance theory

A little of this, a little of that, and “puff!” – the hair care cocktail is ready. The good news first: Nothing can fly up in the air that quickly, no matter which shampoos, treatments and care sprays you combine with each other. What should be in every care routine? Keratin! The protein is the most important building material of our hair. If they are damaged from the outside, the cuticle layer opens and keratin can be lost. Keratin products fill in the gaps and rebuild the structure.

Wheat protein also strengthens weakened hair in the long term. If you want to give your surface a mirror look, you should try silk proteins. They provide a polished feel.

An effect can be seen even faster with the new so-called hair fluids. These shine tonics use lamellar technology to store special positively charged ingredients on the hair surface and make them noticeably smoother in seconds.

2nd lesson: care methodology

The root of hair length times brushes squared…? Don’t worry, the formulas for the quiff are easier to learn than you can spell Pythagoras! Weekly wash times tip cutting equals healthy mane: very simple. Normally dry hair should only be rinsed once or twice a week. Oily items benefit from a wash every other day because the increased sebum production makes them look stringy faster.

Still, no reason to bully the fat secreted by the glands at the hair roots! Without it, our mane would look pretty old, sallow and dull. If you want shine, you have to take care of your sebum. The classic formula? 100 brush strokes – everyone knows it! The body’s own care substance is distributed in the lengths, seals hair dandruff and makes the mane supple. A few dozen passes are enough for this.

Last sentence for today: the cutting formula. Every three months you should leave a few centimeters. Bleached hair is more stressed and needs to be trimmed more often: trimming the ends about every six weeks is worthwhile.

3rd hour: trend customer

Have you heard what the cool girls in the schoolyard are wearing now? Curly fringe, bowlcut and pristine bob are all the rage. Styling and cuts are behind this: a curly, airy pony, rounded lengths and a flawlessly groomed bob, in which not a hair steps out of line.

New at school: futuristic hair dryer variants that can do more than just blow dry. Have you heard of the flyaway attachment? It looks like Gonzo’s nose (the one from “Sesame Street”) and tames flying hair with airflow. This creates a glossy finish that looks like you’ve spent hours at the hairdresser’s. Tip: Always use on dry hair.

Did you know that you can also blow dry your hair? If you blow-dry too hot and too long, your hair and scalp will dry out. A new device from Japan secretes tiny negatively charged water particles through a nozzle, which penetrate the cell structure of the hair and supply it with the finest moisture particles. But enough for today. Off to the break!
