A hair’s lifecycle has three stages : 

Even though effects are visible on the hair, all the action takes place on the scalp.

How can I keep my hair clean?

For all hair types, you need to cleanse it without irritating it or removing the hydrolipidic film so you do not disrupt the hair bulb’s physiology.

Only a non-detergent shampoo can preserve the hair’s biological balance. This type of shampoo does not contain surfactants that would be too harsh on the hair fibre. You should usually wash your hair every day if you wear a hat, play intense sports or live somewhere with high pollution. So it is critical to choose a true non-detergent shampoo. Some medicated shampoos can be non-detergent.

If it is enriched with magnesium, this nutritional supplement may also help combat stress, which can cause hair loss.


If you are experiencing significant and persistent hair loss, you should see a dermatologist.

Washing hair too frequently and using overly detergent shampoos risk causing reactive hyperseborrhoea. Indeed, when sebum has been removed after aggressive cleansing, the sebaceous glands may get “excited” and over-secrete, thus making the hair and scalp even oilier.
