Care and Styling for Stronger Hair
Hair will get stronger if you adapt your hair care to your hair type and use gentle styling methods. In time, as your hair structure improves your hair will become more resilient and look fuller.
Shampooing: The shampoo should be designed to strengthen hair and rebuild damaged hair structures. This will prevent breakage and create the basis for stronger looking hair.
More does not always help more: Use the proper amount of shampoo and hair care products. If too much product coats your hair it will not have any bounce and will resist all styling efforts.
Drying: Start drying your hair using a blow-dryer at medium heat. Do not yet completely dry your hair. Work a small amount of styling mousse through your still wet hair before you dry it completely using your blow dryer. Your hair will look fuller and have more bounce if you use a skeleton brush to lightly pull your hair away from your scalp while you blow-dry it.
What not to do: Never use a towel to rub your hair dry because this will damage the hair’s outer cuticle layer.
Styling: Use volumizing styling products for more volume and bounce. Light sprays with 'push-up effect' are ideal for this purpose but volumizing powder also works well.
Dry shampoo is also a fast and easy styling aid for the removal of sebum from hair and scalp. This provides an instant volume boost.
Hairspray: If you decide to use hairspray you should lift small strands of hair and apply the hairspray from the underside of the lifted strand. After the styling is complete, apply an additional very small amount of hairspray to the surface.

Tip 1: The Beauty Diet Plan
A healthy diet is the basis for healthy hair. Protein and vitamin B5 are tremendously important for a healthy scalp and healthy hair. You find ample amounts of the needed proteins in eggs, nuts and cheese. Vitamin B5 is for example present in unprocessed natural rice, beans and whole grains. Vitamins and minerals strengthen the hair roots. Please note: Coffee stimulates the sebum production at the hair roots, which unfortunately also leads to the increased shedding of dandruff. Nicotine and alcohol are also absent from our balanced beauty diet plan. Instead, the plan contains fruit, fish, poultry, green leafy vegetables as well as milk, soy and whole grain products. Our healthy hair diet contains ample biotin, zinc, iron and folic acid.
Tip 2: Keep you hair supple!
Conditioners keep the hair cuticles smooth and supple. Apply conditioning rinses especially to the worn down and dry ends of your hair.
Tip 3: User a heat guard on your hair
Avoid heat-damaging your hair. You should therefore keep your hair dryer in constant motion while blow-drying your hair and stay away from using attachments, which narrow the stream of heated air. Setting your blow-dryer to lower temperatures definitely reduces the risk of damaging your hair structure. Hair dryers or styling tools like flat or curling irons often reach a temperature up to 200 °C [392 °F]. In damaged hair, proteins start being degraded around 140 °C [284 °F]. You should therefore remember to always use a protective spray before applying such styling devices. This regenerates the hair’s protein structure, repairs the hair surfaces, and shields the hair against damage.
Tip 4: The proper haircut works wonders
Does your fine limp hair create a sad frame for your face? Usually, the wrong haircut is responsible for the trouble. An appointment with a skillful and experienced hair stylist is therefore a great idea. The hair stylist will analyze the structure of your hair and knows what will work for you. This way you will get the right haircut, not just a fashionable one. With this accomplished, your new hair style needs a trimming every six weeks. However, do not permit anyone to trim your hair with a razor blade or to roughly take scissors to the ends. Split ends and damage to the scalp are often the result of such techniques. At the end of such treatment are often difficulties creating a full bouncy head of hair.
Tip 5: A good brush is an essential tool
The best brushes have natural (boar) or mixed bristles. Such brushes glide through hair with ease. Of course, the smooth gliding only works when the hair is no more than damp and no longer as sensitive as wet hair. A well designed brush also removes dirt particles and residual styling products from your hair while evenly distributing sebum from the hair roots to the ends.
Tip 6: Hands off the scalp
Women with greasy hair should play around with their hair as little as possible to avoid picking up sebum with the fingers and distributing it all the way to the hair ends.
Tip 7: Box of magic tricks
Your hair will look thicker when you color it a shade darker. Slightly frosting your hair also works because the process will bring some slight roughness to your hair and make it easier to handle. We have a secret tip for thin hair: Use volume shampoos, which replenish the hair structure. In case your hair tends to be oily, use only mild baby shampoos.
