TRESS STRESSES

Hong Kong Tatler - - Style -

1. Dry & Coarse

symp­toms: Lack of shine, smooth­ness Cause: Lack of lipids and mois­ture Due to the large sur­face area of in­di­vid­ual hairs and the pres­ence of fewer oil glands on the scalp than other ar­eas of skin, hair can be­come dry. Add chem­i­cal treat­ment, ur­ban pol­lu­tion and sun ex­po­sure to the mix, and locks ap­pear more crisp-like than ca­ress-able. “Over­ex­po­sure to any of th­ese fac­tors strips hair’s pro­tec­tive layer of its nat­u­ral oils, caus­ing lay­ers to sep­a­rate and peel away, leav­ing the hair weak­ened and dry,” ex­plains Sains­bury.

In con­junc­tion with daily hy­drat­ing prod­ucts such as Moroc­canoil Treat­ment or Moroc­canoil Treat­ment Light for fine hair, Kings­ley rec­om­mends us­ing weekly an in­ten­sive pre-sham­poo con­di­tioner like Elas­ti­cizer, which he cre­ated for Au­drey Hep­burn, or Apivita Propo­line Mask for a hy­dra­tion boost.
