The System Professional Hydrate Line, with Formamoist Complex, provides the hair with long-term moisture and active protection from drying out. Lightweight formulas
Long term suppleness and smoothness. Hair full of energy with a balanced lipid proﬁle, for increased protection against external influences and further drying out.
The moisture balance of hair is the basis for healthy hair that’s full of energy. It also determines other hair attributes such as texture and manageability. This, however, can fluctuate significantly depending upon various influences. Hair is in fact hygroscopic. This means it absorbs and gives-off water molecules through air humidity. The weight of bonded water within hair fluctuates between approximately 10% (in desert climate, dry central heating) and 30% (in tropical rainforest, fog or sauna).
The water bound to hair evaporates not only from the outside, but also partly from the inside, during the drying of hair, exposure to the sun or under conditions of low air humidity. This causes the moisture content of the hair to drop. The hair loses elasticity and feels rough and dry.
Dry hair can start with a dry scalp. A hypo-function of the sebaceous glands causes lack of the protective lipid ﬁlm. This means the hair is prone to dryness. As the hair grows longer the natural lipids get lost, and cannot protect the delicate protein structure of the hair anymore. Once the protective lipid ﬁlm is lost, moisture cannot be retained in the hair.
