HELPING WOMEN TO BEAUTIFUL THICK LONG HAIR WITH HERBS, TRICHOLOGY AND SCIENCE SINCE 2015
In the article and video you will learn whether it is wise to use sodium bicarbonate on the scalp, as we often see in various recommendations.
The video will take you 50 seconds. If you don't have the opportunity to watch the video, there is a text transcript below it.
The post was created by trichologist Adrián.
Adrián is a bit of a nut when it comes to hair. He traveled to China to see the women with the longest hair in the world. All this just to get the secret recipes for long hair from them. These later became the basis of hair cosmetics under the brand The GARDEN. He studied with a master for two years on ancient Chinese herbal mixtures and together they designed nutritional supplements against hair loss and for rapid hair growth. He is the co-founder of the "hair_expert" project, where he works as a trichologist - a scalp and hair specialist...

If any hair blogger is going to recommend you put sodium bicarbonate on your scalp once, please consider that:
- the average pH value of the scalp of an adult woman is 5.5 and the pH value of the hair is approximately 3.7. Cosmetic hair products try to approximate these values to keep hair and scalp in balance.
The sodium bicarbonate has a pH value of up to 9.5. Since the pH scale is logarithmic, this means that the sodium is 10,000 times more alkaline than your skin.
Research and practice shows that products with high pH levels can increase hair surface damage, breakage or frizz and irritate the skin.
On the other hand, I certainly do not claim that the pH value of 5.5 corresponds to a healthy person, because a newborn baby has it at about 8, but we will leave the topic of overacidification of the organism by improper diet for another time...

What do trichologists recommend to clean a scalp?
At the lockdown time, when the hairdressing salons were closed, we were looking for a solution for home scalp and hair care. We developed a solution that means you no longer have to waste time or money on expensive treatments because you can clean your scalp and hair in the comfort of your own home.
We divided cleaning into 2 phases:
The first uses Grey Hair Mask, a pre-shampoo detoxifying hair and scalp treatment mask with encapsulated activated charcoal, aloe vera and hemp oil in a unique liquid crystal technology:
deeply cleanses the skin, adds and maintains hydration;
forms a protective layer on the hair surface;
reduces hair frizz;
reduces hair breakage and split ends;
makes combing easier,
increases hair volume and shine,
for all scalp and hair types.
In the second phase Hair Prosecco Spray, which is a unique hair spray for more volume, fluffier and shinier hair.
prevents formation of limescale on hair
closes the hair surface - keeps it hydrated and flexible for longer time
increases shine and volume
makes combing easier
prevents frizz and electrification
delays the need for washing
increases the natural frizziness of hair
for whom HOME HAIR AND SCALP CLEANING makes sense, can find a discounted set of these 2 products called DETOX DUO.
They don't waste time and money on expensive treatments at hair salons because they can cleanse easily and quickly in the comfort of their own home...
At the beginning of our consultancy (2015), we spent about a year looking for suitable hair cosmetics from the perspective of trichologists (hair specialists). Well, we didn't.
We have experienced many products that can be divided into 2 groups. The first one consists of cheaper drugstore products with unsatisfactory ingredients and not completely safe chemicals and the second one consists of overpriced, 100% “purely natural” products, without the ability to deep clean the skin and hair follicles.
And so we designed and produce our own cosmetics and nutritional supplements, focusing on an outside-in and inside-out approach at the same time.
Hair health starts on the inside. Thanks to nutrition, healthy digestion, strengthening blood production and fluid transformation. It continues with a clean, supple and hydrated scalp, clean hair follicles and active roots. Everything together forms the basis for the growth of strong healthy hair.
The last part of our efforts belongs to the hair itself, right down to the ends. They must be hydrated and flexible so that they don't break or fray. No expense is spared on the hair. It is our crown, which we carry everywhere with us and cannot be hidden.
And besides, it's true that:
“Smile and hair are the most beautiful accessories to any woman of any age.”
