When we dye our hair, bleach it, or have ANY chemical service done, such as perms or relaxers, we will inevitably damage our scalp. It is proven, that to the cellular damage to the structure of your hair occurs, not only from these services, but from the products we use at home.
But why is this important?
Rob Guimond, founder of HairpHix has done extensive research on hair and scalp health. He has found that scalp health is essential to long healthy hair. And one very important part of scalp health is the Acid Mantle.
The acid mantle is a very thin acid layer on the surface of the scalp that acts as a barrier to protect it from harmful and dangerous chemicals. Any interruption in the acid mantle allows the absorption of these harmful chemicals and can cause long term damage to the hair follicle.
Since the acid mantle is directly affected by pH, anything above a pH of 5.5 can damage the acid mantle.
The increase in pH interferes with this protective barrier, separates the cells from each other which results in dehydration, roughness, and irritation.
At this point, the scalp is defenseless and is susceptible to additional cellular damage.
The result of this damage is fine and thinning hair, redness of the scalp, rash, or an itchy scalp.
What are the results of this chemical damage?
Dry hair, weakened hair rooting, hair loss and will almost always cause weakened growth.
So, what should I ask my stylist?
Since all the chemical changes made in the hair require raising the pH, up to 10 with the most permanent color, perms or straighteners. This can severely compromise a clients hair.
Even many sulfate-free shampoos have a high pH, which will not only compromise the acid mantle, but it will also strip your color.
Most styling and finishing products are in the same high pH range.
This is why it is essential to request that all your products are in the pH range of 4.5-5.5.
Insist that your stylist only use products from this range.
If the pH is not clearly labeled in the product, it must be assumed to be alkaline (pH above 7).
