Intense hair care is a trend and haircare promises to be as popular as skincare. So get your bathroom countertop ready, because today we’re going to teach you how to put together a complete hair care routine – also known as the Capillary Schedule.
The capillary schedule can be divided into three stages: hydration, nutrition and reconstruction. Each one acts in the hair treatment in a specific way and according to the hair’s needs. Check out how each step works and how to include them in your care routine, to leave your hair healthier, more beautiful and softer.
Start with the porosity test to understand what your strands need. For this, you will only need:
- 1 glass of water;
- 1 strand of your hair.
Place the strand inside the cup and see how it looks.
If the strand floats on the surface: you need hydration;
If the strand neither floats nor sinks: go for nutrition;
If the strand sinks: bet on reconstruction.
Hydration is responsible for returning water to the hair, flexibility against breakage and without that opaque aspect, leaving it softer, lighter, shinier, and without the dreaded split ends.
Nutrition is essential to protect hair against daily external aggressions, which end up causing dryness, frizz, and weakening of the hair fiber. Thus, it is responsible for replenishing the oils that protect the hair, making the cuticles aligned and closed.
Reconstruction is ideal for replenishing hair protein for those who have had chemical processes on their hair and lost hair mass. Are your strands brittle and thin from the use of hot tools, coloring or bleaching? Then this step is especially suggested for you, as it leaves your hair fuller.
The capillary schedule is suitable for all hair types and what changes from one to the other is the sequence of types of masks used on the day of treatment. Oh, and it’s essential to take a break of at least 48 hours between one treatment and another, so it doesn’t overload the strands and the actives effectively penetrate into the hair.
Now we want to know: were you already following a capillary schedule or would you like to try it out?
