Our hair is always constantly being attack from factors such as water, sun, cold, hairbrushes, products used or stress. Its external shell, the cuticle, is therefore damaged sometimes. These attacks can also alter the functioning of the hair follicle located under the surface of the scalp, resulting in numerous imbalances.
Hair and scalps imbalances are caused by a number of factors which suddenly or gradually influence and modify their intrinsic characteristics. The causes of these imbalances can be classified into five categories.
- Physiological Cause (Hormones, Tiredness, Overwork, Stress)
- Chemical Cause (Washing too frequently, Aggressive shampoo, Saltware or chlorinated water, Chemical products)
- Mechanical Cause (Excessive brushing, Hair dryer, Too much hair brush)
- Dietary Cause (Unbalanced diet, Food rich in lipids, Nutritional deficiencies)
- External Cause (Climate, Environment)
Oily hair is an "imbalance". Oily hair is flat, sticky, shiny and difficult to style. This is due to excessive sebum secretion, a phenomenon known as seborrhea, which can be caused by the following:
- Dysfunction of sebaceous gland
- Poor Diet: excessive consumption of lipids
- Excessive combing
- Stress and overwork
- Frequent use of irritating shampoos
