and vital hair, your best expression of beauty
our hair the way it should be treated every day is a fundamental issue to feel
secure with ourselves and comfortable with our appearance: our hair is part of
our personal beauty. But to be perfect, we will need a small dose of daily care
and attention. At Perfume's Club we want to make that task less complicated for
you, so we're going to give you some details about the essential topics you
need to know about your hair.
begin by going to the root of the problem we want to address or mitigate. For
this you will need to know what your hair type is and how you can treat your
scalp. Following in our footsteps, you'll learn in advance which products may
benefit you the most, as well as the best time to apply a repair conditioner, a
keratin mask, or a thermal protector.
what characteristics your scalp has and what your hair type is
establish a daily routine of hair care, it is essential that you know well the
characteristics of your leather hair and how you will treat it. The dilemma
often revolves around the sebaceous glands (responsible for secreting the
natural lubrication of your hair) that often produce an excess (problems with
oily hair or dandruff) or the opposite (dryness and brittle hair). As we do not
all have the same metabolism and this is often influenced by external factors
(stress, diet, habits, etc.), we will have to pay attention to the types of
scalp that exist in order to identify our own:
- Oily: It
has sebaceous glands that produce excess sebum and give the hair a straight and
dull appearance. This may be due to either hormonal changes (common in puberty
or maturity) or stress. People who have oily scalps also have oily hair. The
usual hair type with these characteristics is light hair, which is much finer
than dark hair and therefore more susceptible to excess oil. Oily hair will
need frequent but not daily cleansing, because if we wash it too much we will
end up producing more sebum as a natural response of our body. You will need
oil-free shampoos that have astringent properties and mild detergent. If you
dry-clean it, it will be better for you, and it is better not to use too many
masks. If necessary, apply it only to the ends.
- Dry: This
type of hair has a dull, lifeless appearance and is also more susceptible to
breakage. The most obvious cause of this dryness is dehydration of the scalp.
Water retention is poor and so is natural lubrication. You will need shampoos
with moisturizing properties, and if they contain vegetable oils that help you
to hydrate your scalp naturally, better. You should not wash it often, but it
is good to hydrate it regularly, applying the appropriate mask or serum and
moistening it a little without rinsing.
it occurs when your scalp is between dry and oily, and is due to the fact that
the sebaceous glands have high root activity but do not have the influence to
imbue all the hair, so the tips are dry and brittle. In this case you will need
the same shampoo as an oily hair type, focusing them only on the scalp and
avoiding washing the ends. Then we will treat the tips dry, with a moisturizer
or repair serum.
This is the most balanced type. It is brilliant and docile, and is the result
of a balanced and healthy lifestyle, as well as good genetics. If you combine
it with the use of specific products for each of your hair's needs, you will
achieve incredible results.
If you have
already located your scalp type, we will now determine what types of hair there
are, and which is yours so that you can treat it properly. Broadly speaking,
- Thick hair:
The main characteristic of this hair is that it has a thick strand. It is the
most resistant hair type and can best withstand wear, hairstyles or colouring.
However, it is scientifically proven that this type of hair has more difficulty
assimilating moisture than other types of hair, and therefore can lead to
excess volume and frizz.
- Thin hair:
this is the opposite of thick, the strand is thin and lacks volume and
strength. You will need specific products for this type of hair, which usually
contain softer and less aggressive ingredients. Every time you wash it it is
good to use a good conditioner that nourishes your hair, as well as apply a
mask to the ends once a week.
hair: the strand of this type of hair is between the thick and thin type,
therefore it is balanced. However, it presents several frequent problems: lack
of volume, lack of shine, split ends and tendency to frizz in front of the static. To do this, we should take care of it in the
following way: wash it every day if it is greasy, and every two or three days
if it is normal or dry. Our shampoo should be mild, low in detergent and
moisturizer. Use little conditioner and masks that help to keep it smooth,
without weighing it down or curling it.
- Curly hair:
This is a dry and voluminous type of hair. The strands take very wavy shapes
and are fine and delicate. When we wash it, we should do it gently and nourish
it intensely. The frequency with which you wash it should be lower and always
use a specific, nutrient-rich conditioner. Wearing dry, daily masks, serums or
vegetable oils to keep you hydrated will be a better option.
- Wavy hair:
It has strands that are not as curly as the curly hair type and with much wider
strokes. For this reason it is usually somewhat thicker and not as dense. It
can also have characteristics of both oily and combination hair. You should use
the shampoo that best suits your scalp type.
hair products that can benefit your hair
are many different types of products to benefit your hair, you need to think
carefully about which ones to choose for your daily care. In this sense, we
want to help you by showing you in general terms what products you can use to
treat your hair and how to make the most of it:
- Some types
of general shampoos are:
shampoo: suitable for all hair types, does not treat any particular problem,
simply removes dirt from the hair without major changes, respecting the natural
pH of your scalp. This type of shampoo is good for normal, balanced hair that
doesn't need to treat any specific problems.
shampoo: helps dry hair retain moisture, making it more flexible and soft to
the touch. It is recommended for curly or frizzy hair, fine and with a tendency
- Shampoo for
colored hair: they seek to maintain the color of the dye in the hair for a
longer period of time, respecting the pigmentation. It is a very specific type
for when our hair is colored. You must take into account the characteristics of
the shampoo and your hair color and hair type in order to choose the one that
best suits your hair type and color.
Shampoo: Provides volume to fine, dry, dull looking hair.

should be used as a very specific treatment if you have this problem and should
be treated gently. In these cases, it is best to seek advice from your

They complement the shampoo and have softer, more emollient characteristics.
The types of conditioners are the same as the ones detailed for the shampoo and
complement it. In some cases, such as greasy or mixed hair, or normal hair with
a risk of excess sebum, it is not always advisable to use the conditioner when
washing your hair.
- The masks are
treatments for dry hair that need to retain moisture, these products also have
vitamins, silk proteins, flax, oats, etc... are nourishing the hair, seal the
cuticles and protect from external aggressions.
- We also
have different types of fasteners that we can use depending on our objective:
gels: used to maintain cohesion between locks of hair. They give a wet glow and
are not sticky to the touch. They can be applied to dry or oily hair. You can
choose the type of gel that best suits your hair type, as there are
moisturizers, astringents, neutrals, etc.
- Foams: they
have an effect very similar to that of gels, forming a very thin, transparent,
soft and flexible sheath around the hair.

account that it is appropriate, it fits your hair type, and the hairstyle you
want to achieve with it. They are light, strong and extra strong fixing. Its
use varies according to the hairstyle you want to achieve.
these should be used sparingly and if you have dry or delicate hair it is
advisable to use them as little as possible.

around your hair that protects it from heat and external aggressions.
