Here are a few frequently asked questions about hair gels for women.
The best way to remove any product is by using a clarifying shampoo at least once a week. Make sure to use a moisturising conditioner after you shampoo to retain the moisture in the hair as clarifying shampoos are purely for cleansing.
In all probability, the expiry date will be mentioned on your product. Otherwise, unopened hair care products have a shelf life of three years. This, however, breaks down to 18 months once the product has been opened in the case of non-aerosol and non-spray products. Gels get contaminated by bacteria and moisture which accelerates their breakdown so make sure you store your gel in a cool dry place. Look for signs that hint at your products getting old. Changes in smell, texture or colour are all signs that a product is breaking down due to age or contamination.
Hair gels require a topical application, meaning you should apply them externally on your hair and not on the scalp. The ingredients of the gel form a clear film between each hair strand which helps in binding them together and shaping the hair as desired.
Our body does the most amount of healing during the night. It is better to make sure your hair and scalp are clean to aid the regeneration process and allowing the hair follicles to breathe. Going to sleep with gel in the hair can clog the pores on your scalp.
Hair loss is an internal problem which is caused by many factors such as food, genes, stress, lifestyle change, pollution etc. Use of hair gel, when applied on the hair and not onto the scalp, would not lead to hair loss.
So, ready to style your hair for that upcoming date?!
