Hair Care in Areas of Desalinated Water
Why is hair affected by desalinated water?
Desalination is the process of converting seawater to drinking or tap water.
If the water comes from a treatment plant, which derives the water from the sea, it is called desalinated water.
As a result, the treatment plants must add more chlorine to kill bacteria and then add lime (a calcium compound) to help control the chlorine levels.
Desalinated water is hungry water that can have a drying effect on the hair.
In a study by Arden Healthcare, samples of hair fall were collected from all hair types in different countries using desalinated water.
It was found that a far larger percentage was damaged hair that had broken off, rather than from the natural cycle of hair fall.
How to take care of your hair to avoid damage and hair loss
The right hair care can make all the difference. You do not need to put up with dry, damaged, falling hair. Your hair care routine needs a treatment to keep your hair thick, shiny and strong.
First take care of the basics
Eat a colourful fresh balanced diet including daily protein to make sure you have everything in your body to be healthy.
If your body is not healthy it will not produce healthy hair. Hair is not a vital organ and is last on your body’s list of priorities.
Your hair is made of keratin and to produce keratin your body needs protein.
Make water your main drink of the day
This is essential in hot climates to keep your whole body hydrated. If you want to know about the power of water just watch your garden blossom and grow after a shower of rain.
Your hair routine
The traditional benefits of scalp massage were explained to me by a leading trichologist as the best way to growth thicker hair. All it takes is a 2-minute pre-wash massage.
Permea Plus Hair Repair Massage Oil contains 6 light, natural oils which promote a healthy scalp and strong hair growth.
The massage works by encouraging the blood flow to the roots; nourishes the scalp and encourages new strong regrowth. Massage your scalp gently for just 2 minutes and then comb the oil though your hair. Massage especially thinning areas and near your hair line where you want regrowth.
You can apply a hot towel or gentle heat from your hair dryer to push the oil into your hair and scalp.
Use hair care products designed for desalinated water
Desalinated water contains high levels of calcium and chlorine, which are minerals that damage hair, causing it to break and fall.
To combat the effects of these minerals, you need a shampoo that is specially designed for use with desalinated water, such as Permea Plus Anti-Sal Shampoo, which will gently remove the minerals from your hair, helping to prevent damage.
Desalinated water is also very drying for the hair so you will need a super-moisturising conditioner, such as Permea Plus Anti-Sal Conditioner, which will restore moisture balance, strength and elasticity to the hair.
Invest in really good quality, organic Argan Oil
You can use Argan Oil on the ends of your hair before blow drying to condition the ends and prevents frizz. It is much better than a silicone based cosmetic product and gives real condition and shine.
Permea Plus 100% Virgin Argan Oil is 100% pure cold-pressed Argan Oil, certified organic at source, with no additives or supplementary oils.
Permea Plus 100% Virgin Argan Oil is a multipurpose product to use on both your hair & skin. You can also use Argan Oil as an overnight treatment on hair and skin, especially when sleeping with air-conditioning.
