HAIR 101 AND MORE
Healthy hair should have a pH balance of approximately 4.5 – 5.5, making it slightly acidic. There are many factors that can negatively affect the pH balance of your hair, such as using chemical relaxers, harsh shampoos and styling products and thermal styling aides like flat irons. When hair is properly pH balanced, the cuticle remains closed which means it does not frizz. It also increases the shine and strength of your hair. However, a higher pH balance will raise the cuticle, causing tangles, dullness and frizz. The raised cuticle will also expose the cortex of the hair shaft, making hair much more susceptible to damage.
Learning to keep the hair cuticle closed will make an enormous difference in your hair’s strength and appearance. Using the MONAT Balance System and REJUVENIQE Oil Intensive will help to ensure the pH balance of your scalp and hair remains balanced and healthy with a closed protected cuticle.
