  • Once a week, the balm can be replaced by a specific treatment, such as a mask ; to make the product penetrate better, you can put a cap on your hair, then wrap it with a towel for at least 10 minutes.
  • High temperatures damage the foliage; to dry your hair it is therefore useful to use a special diffuser to be applied to the hair dryer and keep the jet of hot air at a distance of less than 25 centimeters from your hair.
  • Healthy hair is also the result of a correct diet, which guarantees the right daily intake of mineral salts (potassium, magnesium, iron and zinc) and vitamins, with particular attention to E and those of group B.
