For healthy and lively hair, your pH levels need to be balanced. It is possible to do that both naturally and by using hair products. But first, you need to understand what is a healthy pH level and why is it so important.
Understanding the concept of pH levels
By scientific definition, pH scale measure how acidic or basic a solution is. When it comes to your hair pH levels, your scalp determines whether you need an acidic shampoo or basic shampoo. A pH of 7 is considered to be neutral and healthy.
If your pH levels fall below 7 then you need a mild shampoo.
If you use highly chemical-based acidic shampoos it will damage your hair gravely. Don't buy highly acidic shampoos especially if you have a naturally balanced pH level.
Acidic shampoos are good for people with loose pores and for people who have a high alkaline level.
If your pH is above 7 it means your product may be highly alkaline or basic stealing away all the natural hair oils your sebum gland secretes.
People with excessively dry or frizzy or curly hair usually have pH above 7 and their hair cuticles are more open. Whereas, people with straight hair have tightened cuticles. An acidic pH level will just be like an extremely tight hair tie.
Many hair care products disrupt the pH balance of your scalp causing all sorts of hair problems. Stick to using natural hair care products and home remedies for a healthy pH balance.
If you already have a good pH balance then natural products or products ranging from 5-7 on pH scale will help you maintain the healthiness.
People with colored hair need to be even more cautious of their range of hair care products. Make sure you check if the contents of shampoo, oil or conditioner are suitable for your colored hair.
How can you maintain or regain the balance of your hair naturally?
