How We Use Science to Treat (and Beat) the Effects of Damaged Hair
What is healthy hair, and how do you know if you have it? Let’s take a closer look at what “healthy hair” actually means, the science behind it, and which products you can use to elevate your routine once and for all.
Why is My Hair Unhealthy?
When you think of healthy hair, you likely imagine a mane that’s smooth, shiny, and hydrated—not dry and lackluster. If you feel your hair is looking like the latter, despite all the time and effort you put into your locks—you’re definitely not alone. Below are several common factors that might be contributing to your hair care woes:
Over-processing your hair with excessive chemicals found in treatments, dyes, and bleaches strips your hair of its natural oils and hydration. This can cause a lot of damage causing you to need a treatment for frizzy hair—stat.
Overheating your strands with hair dryers and hot tools can cause excessive dryness that leads to split ends and frizz.
Using hair care products packed with chemicals. Sadly, products like your go-to shampoo, conditioner, scalp mask, and hairspray might be causing your hair texture to feel unhealthy. Many shampoos and conditioners contain harsh chemicals that strip away the natural oils in your hair and scalp.
Solve Your Hair Struggles with Science
Luckily, there are several science-backed ways to help you say adieu to tired, lackluster hair.
Step 1: Scrub with a detox shampoo
A moisturizing shampoo for fine or coarse hair opens the hair’s cuticle to remove build-up and reestablish hydration. Products like Mounia’s Shampoo & Hair Rinse do exactly this by working as a protective keratin treatment for hair.
How we do it: Our patented polymer technology coupled with argan, prickly pear, and squalane oils create an even, strengthening lattice around each follicle to condition and hydrate hair.
Psst…We also recommend pairing your sulfate-free shampoo with one of our Scalp Massagers to help rebuild a healthy scalp environment!
Step 2: Rehydrate with a silicone-free conditioner & hair mask
Following your detox shampoo, it’s important to reseal the cuticles of your hair with a hair mask… but how do you use a hair mask? It’s easy—simply apply it from the root to the end of the hair. Then, let it sit for several minutes for even more conditioning power. We recommend using deep conditioners like the Mounia Conditioner & Hair Mask that is formulated to weightlessly hydrate strands.
How we do it: Similar to our sulfate, silicone, and paraben-free shampoo, our conditioner and scalp mask contain oils like black cumin and flaxseed to nourish dry follicles. Our conditioner also contains Biotin that provides extra nutrients to dry hair.
Psst… This stuff also is a great treatment for frizzy hair—a perfect solution for summertime humidity and flyaways!
Step 3: Rely on a moisturizing, silicone-free hair serum
Once your hair is washed and dry, you’ll want a serum for hair that continues to seal and repair damaged strands. Mounia’s Hair Serum does just that, leaving hair feeling lightweight and hydrated.
How we do it: Organic argan and prickly pear seed oil work overtime to lock in moisture and boost hydration to strengthen every strand.
Psst… This is another great treatment for frizzy hair, but we also recommend using a few drops before styling with hot tools to help reduce damage (and prevent pesky flyaways)!
Step 4: Opt for clean ingredients
By selecting products with clean, organic ingredients that are sulfate, silicone, and paraben-free, you’re providing your hair with top-tier care. Learn more about Mounia’s clean formula rooted in science and ancient Moroccan traditions here.
