A large majority of people tend to wash their heads every day. Their desire: to wear perfect hair, as shiny as it is voluminous. However, this habit is an error which, conversely, will disrupt the proper maintenance of your hair fiber. Explanations.

Wanting too much Rapunzel hair, we all tend to want to do too much! Perhaps you will recognize yourself in this portrait where the shampoo step becomes an almost systematic phase with each shower. Yet the secret to great hair is in a good hair routine — namely, pairing conscientious brushing with smart hair-washing frequency.

Space your shampoos: why is it better for your hair?

In your quest for perfection, you make the mistake of washing your hair too much. This laudable intention is fortunately a reversible clumsiness. In order to better understand the process to follow, it is essential to know the real usefulness of spacing out your shampoos in the future. First, to save time. The longest hair knows it: a shampoo lengthens the shower stage, from ten to twenty minutes depending on the length and type of your hair. But also, too frequent shampoos - very often using stripping products - attack the scalp. Result: you disrupt the natural sebum production of your fiber, and your hair quickly regreases. Another disadvantage: in some cases, dandruff may appear - both scaling your scalp, and leaving behind whitish fragments visible at the birth of your skull as on your clothes.

Space your shampoos: the importance of the transition period

The remedy for hair that gets greasy quickly or increased flaking is simple: slow down and space out the frequency of your shampoos. If the request seems childish, most of them find it difficult to stick to it and return to their habits. At issue: the transition period. Under this obscure term hides the longest and most difficult step to take. Each individual reacts differently — since we are all unique beings — and the duration of the transition cannot therefore be predefined for anyone. By spacing your shampoos at the rate of 2, maximum 3 washes per week, you will certainly have the impression of having sticky and dirty hair. However, it is important to break the vicious circle of daily washing which, contrary to what one might think, promotes the production of sebum. Paradoxically, you will have to wait for your hair to get used to this new rhythm to regulate the excess sebum secreted. However, there is nothing more effective than a good daily hair brushing ritual to prolong the cleanliness of your hair between two shampoos.

Space your shampoos: the usefulness of a boar bristle brush

This universal fiber is the most suitable for ridding your hair of impurities accumulated throughout the day, such as environmental particles or dust.

With at least two brushes per day with an Altesse Studio brush, this transition can be rapid: between 1 and 2 months. More precisely, count: 1 to 3 weeks only for short hair, 3 to 5 weeks for medium-length hair and 5 to 8 weeks for long hair for the sebum to be distributed from the roots to the tips.

Note: our usage tests carried out with our customers indicate real results once the transition has been made. In general, after only 4 weeks, 92% of consumers surveyed reveal that the use of an Altesse Studio boar bristle brush brings shine to the hair, 87% find a good distribution of sebum and 94% also claim to have smoother hair with less frizz.

To regain its vitality and its ideal luster, the hair must be treated from the root thanks to the massage of the scalp provided by the brush.

The trick: the more persistent and rigorous you are in your transition, the faster this phase will be. Especially since, once the period is over, the routine will definitely be adopted by your hair! Achieving it is the assurance of healthy hair and scalp.
