Effective eco organic products for your hair care

Hair is very important in a person's overall appearance and, in some cases, also reflects his state of health. Taking care of your hair and scalp (with its hydrolipidic film) in the right way is important.

A right diet for healthy skin and hair

The hair consists essentially of keratin, which gives it resistance and elasticity. Healthy and beautiful hair is precious and must be adequately 'guarded'. An adequate diet is certainly important: for example eating alternatively white or red meats, and fish at least twice a week and some types of vegetables containing two essential amino acids, cystine and lysine, which make up the hair keratin, a balanced intake of carbohydrates, preferably wholegrain ones, avoiding simple and / or refined sugars present in sweets. Iron, zinc, magnesium and copper are important minerals, but also attention to fats, to be consumed in moderation. vegan / vegetarian, we recommend taking lentils and products containing vitamin C, which promotes the absorption of iron.It is also important to take vitamins and antioxidants such as those contained in fresh fruit and vegetables.Green tea is also useful , rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties.

In addition to a healthy diet, threats to our hair are: stress and external agents (dyes, aggressive cosmetics, plates, hair dryers, UVA rays, wind, salt, smog, cold, chlorine) that make the hair weak, rough and matt.

How to take care of your hair and our scalp: what we recommend and why

Here's what we recommend: a line dedicated to the care, well-being and beauty of hair, designed in collaboration with the University of Florence: the "UNDICI Line" of Domus Olea Toscana.

Domus Olea Toscana is a Tuscan family-owned company that produces Eco-Bio Cosmeceuticals with a high content of active ingredients, in collaboration with the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences of the University of Florence, to guarantee a high efficacy to the organic product. The line of Domus Olea is the first Organic Certified Cosmeceutical line in Europe, initially produced with the family oil and honey and beeswax of the National Park of S. Rossore and the first Tuscan cosmetic line that aims to use local productions as cosmetic ingredients and at the same time to promote them from the food point of view.

The Eleven Line contains eleven exclusive phytocomplexes from Tuscan plants, assisting in the treatment of scalp imbalances and revitalizing the hair bulb obtained according to the patented methodology at the University of Florence to which other specific molecules have also been added: bisabolol, menthol, piroctone olamine, carrot; Eleven also contains:

- vitamins (vitamins A, C, E, B1, B3, PP, B5, B6, B7, B8, B9, H, biotin, panthenol, folic acid: a direct local supply is an adjunct in maintaining healthy hair and skin) and mineral salts (including copper, zinc, magnesium, to promote healthy hair growth);

- ingredients with a similar keratin composition: wheat and rice phytocheratine and 11 amino acids that promote the regeneration of keratin bonds, repairing the hair fiber and increasing elasticity and resistance to defeat; they also increase blood circulation and therefore the nutrition of the hair follicle, favoring the growth of strong, silky and shiny hair;

- an exclusive phytocomplex that favors the restoration of the physiological conditions of healthy skin and protects the hair in all its length and reproduces the composition of the quality sebum naturally produced by the sebaceous glands associated with the hair;

- moisturizing and moisturizing, anti-static, conditioning, protective and anti-frizz ingredients that work in synergy, offering our hair a complete and functional wellness experience to their natural beauty. The molecules with anti-frizz protective activity (including a mix of waxes: bees and rice), do not occlude but interact with the hair fiber, making the hair soft and silky, not only apparently and temporarily like silicones;

- micellar formulation, precisely to reduce the hydro-lipid film of skin and hair to a minimum, based on vegetable surfactants, no SLS and SLES to which plant extracts have been added that remove limescale from the hair from the hair washing, responsible for hardness and opacity and help to close the scales, reactivating the brightness of the hair.

The Undici line of Domus Olea dedicated to hair wellness: what it is and how to use it effectively

The hair line "eleven" was developed in the 3 steps of Cleansing, Care and NutriStyling for the recovery and maintenance of hair health and for a thick, soft and revitalized hair. All products are obviously free of silicones, aggressive surfactants (SLS, SLES) and PEG. The line consists of:

Products for hair and scalp cleaning:

pre-treatment mask (to treat various types of imbalances, such as dandruff, itching, dermatitis, redness, dryness, psoriasis, temporary hair loss);
micellar shampoos (for sensitive skin and frequent washing, for seborrheic skin, and restructuring anti-age);
- micellar cowash, which is like a balm with a small dose of Shampoo: therefore, in addition to cationic surfactants, it also contains a small part of the anionic ones and therefore delicately but effectively cleanses the hair, leaving its nourishing, conditioning and antistatic function;
3-in-1 conditioner and 3-in-1 mask (to deeply moisturize and neutralize the static electricity of the hair and to give the hair restructuring properties in the long term, not just substances with a temporary effect).

Products for hair and scalp care:

- Nuorishings (normal or dry / oily skin);
close scales Repairing Cream and close scales spray conditioner for healthy skin, strong and shiny hair. The stoppers are very useful if you have brittle, dull, treated hair with split ends and if you want more intense action on the structure; if you have dry hair on the lengths, but you have no particular problems on the structure, we recommend the 3 in 1 instead of the stoppers; Choose both if you have dry and brittle hair, and want to tackle both problems with specific products.

Numerous leave-in products to offer nourishment, hydration, protection and styling to our hair, based on their specific needs:

- volumizing tonic;
cream and gel for hair and curls and frizzy ones;
