Recently we attended the Rene Furterer Paris hair care masterclass.

Diego Perez, an international trainer of the firm, highlighted the importance of a healthy scalp, using the example of a plant needing to grow in fertile land.

Each of the attendees was given a personalized hair diagnosis (visual, tactile, dialogue) by answering the following questions:

Friendly-Madrid-Rene-Furterer-Paris

1- How does your hair feel?

2- Do you have a sensitive, dry or greasy scalp?

3-How often do you wash your hair?

4- How long does your hair stay clean?

5- What products do you use normally?

6- Are you losing your hair?

7- If your hair falls out, is it only during certain periods or more habitual?

Rene Furterer has created different product lines for hair covering all its necessities. Depending on how you would answer these questions you identify which product to use.

Curbicia– For greasy scalp or hair

Some tips for healthy hair:

Prepare hair before washing by applying concentrated essential oils that tone the scalp, regulate sebum, stimulate blood microcirculation and reinforce the action of other treatment products.

Astera Soothing Serum (sensible scalp) or Complexe 5 to promote roots (normal scalp).

Friendly-Madrid-Rene-Furterer-Complexe-5

Instructions: spread the product in line with the hair roots massaging from the occipital region to the front, making upward circular motions with your fingertips to stimulate the circulation.

Wash hair when needed, no matter how often but always with the right products.

After washing apply the treatment (mask, conditioner, hair loss lotion, brightening spray)

Brush hairoften without touching the scalp with the brush. The sooner you remove any dead hair, the sooner new hair can grow.

The beneficial effects of the sun are manifold. The synthesis of vitamin D in the skin and UV therapy can improve certain skin conditions related to the sun.

The experts at the press conference highlighted the importance of proper sun exposure in a controlled manner by following these tips:

1. Always use a sunscreen before going outside. Even though we are not directly in the sun, the solar rays can reach us.

2. Use sun protector on dry skin and spread it over the entire body with special attention on the face and neck where it is recommended to use higher levels of protection.

3.Reapply frequently in cases of prolonged exposure and after swimming. The use of sunscreen should not encourage prolonged sun exposure.

4.Avoid sun exposure between 12pm and 4pm.

5.Sunburns are dangerous, especially for children.

6.Sun protection products once opened last approximately one year.

7. The expiration dates are indicated on the package, usually around three years from the time of purchase, while they remain unopened.

8.Visit a dermatologist as soon see an abnormality on the skin and review once a year.
