Why do I have an irritated scalp?

Before choosing your hair care routine, it's important to understand what causes your scalp irritation. While many factors can contribute to itchy scalps (pollution, stress, poor diet, hormonal imbalance, etc.), two substances found in most hair care products are generally the main causes: sulfates and silicones. Let us explain everything you need to know to avoid falling into the trap.

Sulphate in hair care products: the main cause of hair irritation

Most shampoos, conditioners and other hair care products contain sulfate: a very powerful cleansing agent. Don't be fooled by its effectiveness and its lovely creamy lather: this surfactant is not at all suited to your hair and scalp. Particularly aggressive and irritating, shampoos and conditioners containing sulfate often cause allergic reactions, leading to itching, massive dandruff formation and overproduction of sebum. It's an ingredient to be banned from your hair routine if you want healthy hair.

Sulfate and silicone: never one without the other

Most shampoos that contain sulfate are also loaded with silicone: a harmful ingredient whose sole purpose is to hide the damaging effects of sulfate. Like a sheath, silicone envelops your hair, giving the illusion of nourished, smoothed hair, when in reality it suffocates it and prevents it from absorbing care. As a result, hair is dehydrated and weakened: it looks dull and breaks easily.

Adopt Cair hair routine: natural care for your irritated scalp

If you have weakened hair and an irritated scalp, there's a good chance that the products you’re using are the cause. So it's crucial to change your habits and opt for a healthy hair routine: clean hair care products and repeated gestures will help you rebalance your hair ecosystem and bring vitality and health to your hair for good.

Discover our fortifying anti-hair loss serum, our rice water shampoo and our detangling spray: 3 natural, sulfate- and silicone-free hair care products designed to bring your hair back to life.

Fortifying serum: the regrowth accelerator

Designed to stimulate hair regrowth, the fortifying hair serum acts directly on the scalp to rebalance the hair microbiota: it's the first step in your hair routine. Apply your moisturizing serum to the roots of your hair and leave on for 10 to 15 minutes. If you have a very irritated scalp, leave it on overnight, once or twice a week. Rinse thoroughly, then shampoo.

Sulphate- and silicone-free shampoo: an essential part of your hair routine

Our sulfate and silicone-free shampoo, made with natural ingredients, is the flagship product of Cair hair care routine: unlike most shampoos, it contains no harsh ingredients. No more itchy, dry scalp! What's more, this natural shampoo is rich in active waters (rice water, organic grape water, bamboo water, raspberry water...). Known for their moisturizing and soothing properties, active waters are much more nourishing than the water found in most traditional shampoos, leaving your hair feeling vital, shiny and light.

Leave-in detangling spray: a natural, soothing hair care product

Complete your hair routine with our moisturizing leave-in detangling spray. Last but not least, use this sulfate- and silicone-free treatment to gently detangle tangles. With its slightly acidic pH and high concentration of plant nutrients, this detangling spray tightens the scales, protecting your hair from external aggressions (pollution, heat...). Much more than a detangling treatment, this natural hair care product complements the action of your shampoo by providing your hair with softness, moisture and shine.
