What are the harmful effects of silicones on your hair?

Silicones are hydrophobic film-forming agents that are also known as occlusive agents. When they come into contact with the hair, they form an impermeable sheath around the hair fiber: a behavior which, over the long term, creates numerous problems (damaged hair, dryness, itching, dandruff, etc.).

Silicones: a substance to avoid

Silicones in shampoos and conditioners have just one function: create an envelope around the hair. On top of being useless, this envelope prevents hair care products from penetrating the hair fiber making your hair dry and dehydrated. This dryness can have a number of undesirable effects: hair loss, dandruff, discolouration, loss of volume, etc. And the only way out of this vicious circle is to use silicone-free hair care products.

Silicones and sulfates: when one danger hides another

It's hard to talk about silicones without mentioning sulfates: the two are inseparable. Sulfates are foaming agents and surfactants that have the ability to disperse fats in water. They might be very effective for cleansing hair, yet they are also very dangerous for the scalp. Itching, dandruff, overproduction of sebum... the consequences are serious. And here come silicones: thanks to an impermeable sheath, they are able to hide the damaging effects of sulfates, giving the illusion of beautiful and shiny hair. And yet, the reality is quite different.
Together, silicones and sulfates form a dangerous duo for the health of your hair and scalp. That's why it's important to choose hair care products that are free from silicones and sulfates.

Cair silicone-free serum

In order to have beautiful hair, one must have a healthy scalp. Applied directly to the roots of your hair, the strengthening hair serum will help improve your microcirculation and maintain a healthy, long-lasting bacteriological balance. Rich in rice water, this silicone-free hair treatment nourishes and moisturizes the hair and the scalp: it's the ideal product for revitalizing weakened hair and stimulating new growth.

How to use: Apply a few drops of your fortifying hair serum directly to your scalp and massage gently. Leave on for 15 minutes, then wash your hair with your silicone-free, sulfate-free shampoo. If necessary, leave the serum on overnight for optimum conditioning.

Silicone and sulfate-free shampoo

Discover our silicone- and sulfate-free shampoo: made from natural ingredients, this silicone-free hair care product is ultra-gentle. Unlike traditional shampoos, it fully respects your microbiota and causes no irritation. Rich in active waters (rice water, organic grape water, bamboo water, raspberry water, etc.), it moisturizes and soothes the scalp.

Good to know: If you have never used a shampoo without silicones, you'll need a little time to get used to it in order to regenerate your asphyxiated capillary microbiota. But after a few weeks' use, you'll start to notice a clear improvement: your hair will be more beautiful, stronger and shinier.

Leave-in hydrating detangling spray

After every shampoo, use your hydrating leave-in detangling spray to finish your hair routine. As well as gently detangling knots, this natural hair care product tightens the scales and protects your hair from external aggressors such as pollution, humidity and heat.

How to use it: After each shampoo, spray a few sprays onto towel-dried hair 15 cm from the scalp. Detangle your hair with a comb or boar bristle brush. Do not rinse.
