How experts diagnose the condition of the scalp and then properly treat the scalp is explained by Senior Hair Care Consultant Désirée Ahlhaus in an interview in a La Biosthétique salon.
Together with look over a coiffeur's shoulder in a consultation with a customer. Désirée Ahlhaus, responsible for hair care further training at La Biosthétique, explains: "With this scalp everything looks okay at first glance. The hair is slightly shiny, but is definitely easy to
comb and structural damage is more recognisable in the bottom lengths and tips. But when you take a closer look, one to two centimetres of the roots are oily. The scalp is slightly oily". Hair expert Désirée Ahlhaus continues: "For us now it's important to distinguish between whether it is actually an oily or maybe just a moist scalp. Because every scalp needs individual care".
From her many years of experience, Désirée Ahlhaus knows: The reason is mostly an overfunctioning of the sebaceous glands and excessive circulation, which are unfortunately very often triggered by stress or the wrong care.
"Yes!" warns Désirée Ahlhaus. "This doesn't just look unattractive. Normally, the balanced hydrolipid film of sebum and sweat protects the scalp. If there is too much sebum on the scalp, this offers the ideal breeding ground for all kinds of microbes. Consequently, you may rapidly suffer from itchiness, dandruff or overactive sebaceous glands can even lead to hair loss".
Désirée Ahlhaus explains: "Three products from the Methode Normalisante range help treat an oily scalp. Initially, Shampooing Lipokerine A thoroughly and yet gently cleanses the hair with horse chestnut and liquorice root extract. It regulates the sebum and thus prevents the hair from rapidly becoming oily again".
The hair expert nods and points to the consistency: "The shampoo has a very liquid consistency and that is intentional. The shampoo runs rapidly and evenly on the oily scalp and also really reaches the hair roots".
Désirée Ahlhaus now recommends Ergines A: "The refreshing scalp lotion acts like a facial toner. It is not rinsed out and lastingly blocks the stimulus on the sebaceous glands and thus inhibits surplus oil formation. Thus itchiness and irritations disappear, the style looks good and loose for longer and the roots maintain their volume".
"Yes and no", laughs Désirée Ahlhaus. "The person should always be viewed in their entirety. Only then can we create the right impulses at the right time in the right place. That is why we also recommend Visarôme Dynamique N. The aromatherapy oils of juniper berries, cypress and sage have a direct effect on the skin, prevent too much sebum secretion and regulate the circulation. On the other hand, the scents positively affect your whole psyche. The hair roots and entire organism are thus given new energy".
