Skinification in the hair: Is it advisable to put it into practice?

If you have also heard about the new trend in hair care but you do not know very well what it is about, in the blog de Hospital Capilar We tell you everything you need to know about the new hair skinification method. Is it really beneficial to put skinification into practice or is it not as necessary as we thought?

To show off healthy and quality hair we must follow a correct hair care routine, which will vary depending on the hair type, as well as the particular needs of each person. Hair skinification is the latest trend in hair care, which requires incorporating a series of steps before and after washing that, surely, we did not contemplate.

Next, we will tell you what hair skinification is, what are the steps to follow and if it is a truly beneficial technique or if, on the contrary, it is not necessary.

What does the hair skinification method consist of?

Skinification comes from the word “skin”, which in English means “skin”. That is, the hair skinification method refers to the hair care as if it were your skin. This is because we tend to spend much more time on our facial care routines than on hair care, and this new trend seeks to spend more time on our hair by incorporating more steps into the hair care routine.  

The hair skinification method consists of a series of steps to follow, both before washing and after. To achieve optimal results it would be necessary to use hair products specific to our hair type.

Use of pre-shampoo

In the same way that we apply the “primer” to the skin, following the skinification routine, a series of hair products in the form of masks, serums or creams should be applied to the hair and scalp before washing. The goal is to prepare the scalp for hair products that are applied later.

Hair exfoliation

To avoid hair problems such as dandruff or the development of a seborrheic dermatitis, it is important to perform a hair exfoliation once a month. For this we can use hair scrubs, as well as specific brushes that help activate the blood circulation of the scalp.

Using a hair tonic

The goal of using a hair tonic it is none other than to regulate the pH of the skin of the scalp. If the scalp is not healthy and in the best condition, the hair will not be either.

The ideal is to have a pH with a value that ranges between 5 and 5,5, obtaining much shinier and softer hair, without opening the cuticles.

Hair loss ampoules

Another aspect to take into account to avoid hair loss is the hair loss blister treatments. These manage to oxygenate and nourish the hair follicles, strengthening the hair and reducing its fall.

Use of conditioner and mask

The nutrition and hydration phase is essential in a hair skinification routine. For this, it is necessary to use conditioners and masks that respond to the needs of each type of hair.

The mask does not have to be used every dayIdeally, once a week. On the other hand, we can use the conditioner every time we wash our hair in order to hydrate it and thus promote detangling.

sunscreen application

In the same way that we protect the skin from the sun, it is important to neutralize the effects of UVA rays on the hair with a hair sunscreen.

Is it beneficial to perform the skinification technique on the hair?

After knowing what hair skinification consists of, it is normal to ask ourselves a question: Is it really necessary and beneficial for hair?

The truth is that it is important to keep in mind that to maintain the quality of the hair we must take care of the scalp. Using this technique or another will depend on the particular needs of each person, but the skinification method is beneficial and does contribute to maintaining healthy hair.

We must differentiate two concepts: need and benefit. Following this step-by-step method every day is beneficial for our hair health, but not strictly necessary. The important thing is to keep the scalp clean and apply specific products for our hair type and needs.

In short, following the skinification technique on the hair is beneficial since it is a very complete method, but we can adapt it according to our particular needs.

Other tips to take care of hair in depth

Following a hair care routine is essential for it to look in the best condition. However, it is common that at some point in our lives we develop a hair problem such as hair loss.

Severe hair loss? Go to a hair clinic

The hair loses an average of 100 hairs per day, and there is nothing to worry about since it is due to the hair life cycle. Under normal conditions, the hair will grow back. However, in cases where we notice that the hair falls out more than necessary or that, in addition, it is giving way to areas without hair, it is essential to go to a specialized hair clinic.

Use non-surgical hair treatments

Hair transplant, the definitive solution to lack of hair

In those cases where alopecia has already advanced and there are areas where the hair has stopped growing, the only way to recover the hair is the capillary graft. For this it is essential a capillary analysis where the medical team determines the viability of the capillary implant, as well as the follicular units to be extracted.

The necessary follicles are extracted from the lower part of the neck and subsequently implanted in the area affected by alopecia. The results are given a year after the capillary graft, although at 6 months the first changes can already be seen.
