Healthy Hair

Discover the secrets to lasting freshness, so you can eliminate greasy roots,

Kérastase Spécifique Lasting Freshness: The #1 Sign of Healthy Hair

Did you know one of the main signs of healthy hair is freshness? If your hair is lacking this tell-tale clean scent just after washing, then it’s a sign something could be up. And fresh hair doesn’t necessarily mean freshly washed. Healthy hair is able to stay fresher for longer without frequent trips to the shower, find out how.




The Not-So-Fresh Hair Signs

If your hair is lacking freshness, then you may notice these concerns:

Oily scalp

An oily scalp and greasy hair can be the sign of an unbalanced sebum
cycle, which means it will be impossible for you to achieve lasting
freshness.

Scalp odor

This sebum imbalance can lead to scalp odor. And if you deal with this
then know you’re not alone, it is a rising concern for consumers.

Lack of volume

Another symptom of an unbalanced sebum cycle is flat
roots and an overall lack of root lift.

To Wash Every Day or Not

Upping the frequency of your hair wash days may seem like the logical answer to getting fresh hair, but daily hair washing can amplify and unbalance the all-important sebum cycle that can lead to unwanted scalp odor if you’re using non adapted products. Yes, it actually makes your scalp less fresh And this, in turn, drains moisture from your strands making hair drier than ever.





So, you end up in a cycle of an always oily scalp and dry mid-lengths and ends. The answer is to wash with the right products especially adapted and formulated to support hair freshness.

Spécifique: The Answer to Lasting Freshness

Want to know how to get rid of greasy hair, scalp odor and boost hair volume? Our new trio of products, specially designed for lasting freshness, tackle the three symptoms above using Amino Acid to regulate the sebum cycle.

The Amino Acid in the new look Bain Divalent shampoo and the new Argile Equilibrante cleansing clay and Masque Rehydratant have a unique hair affinity to regulate the sebum cycle and rebalance hydration in the hair. The Amino Acid gently cleanses, attracting dirt in micelles (that are then easily rinsed away), whilst balancing healthy pH levels allowing for a super gentle cleanse. Amino Acid also acts both as a conditioning and reinforcing active ingredient to limit free radical stress and to help weakened hair absorb and hold onto moisture.
