REPIGMENTING TECHNOLOGY DELAY AND REVERSE GREY HAIR WITHOUT COLORING PIGMENTS PHYTO RE 30

A NATURAL TECHNOLOGY
98% OF NATURAL INGREDIENTS

No fewer than 98% of natural ingredients are contained in Phyto RE30’s formula. An anti-grey hair action is ensured by the RE30 peptide, which helps boost the hair’s natural pigmentation process and protect it against depigmentation. It’s complemented by a beautifying action, thanks to the purple tulip extract which strengthens the hair by acting on proteins located at the heart of the hair fiber, essential to its structure, to ensure better connections between keratins.
THE REVOLUTIONARY

ANTI-GREY HAIR FORMULA

THE REPIGMENTING PEPTIDEIT ACTS ON THE ROOTS,
IN 2 STAGES

No fewer than 76 peptides have been
synthesized then screened via in vitro,
ex and in vivo tests, with the aim of
identifying the one with the greatest
impact on pigmentation. Peptide no. 30,
called RE 30, was selected.
bENEFITS:
Phyto RE30 texture perfectly adapts to men and women alike. As does the light and invigorating unisex fragrance, with its citrus accords that give way to a greener carnation and apple aroma. Silicone-free, light and non-oily, Finally, its formula contains no fewer than 98% of natural ingredients.

It acts on the roots, in two stages:
BOOSTS PIGMENTATION
+38% NATURAL REPIGMENTATION*

Consisting of four specific amino acids, it has the particularity of being a biomimetic of alpha-MSH, a hormone playing a key role in pigmentation. This activates melanin synthesis (by stimulating the expression of enzymes essential to its production – tyrosinase, TRP1, TRP2) and its transfer to the hair shaft. This biomimicry allows the RE30 peptide to boost the natural pigmentation process.

PROTECTION AGAINST DEPIGMENTATION
77% LESS GREY HAIR*

As well as making new pigments, RE 30 peptide also fights their depigmentation by protecting them from hydrogen peroxide. It boosts antioxidant catalase and reduces the production of hydrogen peroxide by 30

HOW TO USE;
Use daily. Easy to use, the dispenser spray bottle is used to directly apply the right quantity ofREATMENT product on the hair: 8-10 pushes for each use. Massage scalp after application for enhanced penetration. Use it like a day cream: every day, applied in the morning or evening on dry or wet hair. Do not rinse.

In order to see results the cure should be prolonged for 3 months. Results may appear since the 2nd month of usage.
Can be used in combination with any other Phyto treatment

VELATERAPIA – FLAME CUTTING – CANDLE- CUTTING

Could burning split ends be better than a haircut?

The treatment involves twisting small sections of the hair until split ends stick out and then burning them off with a burning candle. This cauterizes the ends for a sleek, glossy look. This treatment works especially well with long hair. YOU DO NOT LOOS ANY LENGTH. Super models use this trick, new and hot out of Brazil, to keep their long hair healthy and glossy.

While candle cutting seems to be a hot new trend it actually has been around for quite a while. Urs learned it in the sixties at a time when everybody had long hair and cutting was frowned upon. He revived the practice and candle cutting is now available at Strands.

For the perfect look the hair gets candle cut, deep conditioned and the bottom ends cauterized with scissors with a hot blade and blow dried smooth. Urs recommends repeating this every 6 to 8 weeks.

Crash course on keratin Hair

Crash course on keratin
Keratin is the essential component of hair. It is a protein formed by the combination of 18 amino acids, among which cysteine deserves special mention, being rich in sulphur and playing an important role in the cohesion of the hair. It is produced by the keratinocytes. These cells, situated in the bottom of the dermal papilla, multiply and differentiate: while some spread to the periphery of the hair follicle to form the internal and external epithelial sheaths, others become elongated to form the hair shaft. During this journey they fill with keratin fibres. As soon as they have filled with keratin, the keratinocytes die. Thus, after a journey of about 0.5 mm inside the root, the hair is definitively formed, and during the remainder of its life does not receive any further supply from the tissue which created it. Within the body of the hair, the cortex, the keratin is organised into protofibrils, composed of 4 chains of keratin. This assembly is held together by bonds or bridges between the atoms of the different chains. These bonds may be of variable strength: weak bonds such as hydrogen bonds can be distinguished from the stronger ionic bonds and sulphur bridges. It is by acting on these bonds that the shape of the hair can be modified.

Pilosebaceous unit (the what?)
To stay looking beautiful and ensure its strength, hair needs lipids. Some are a constituent part of the hair shaft, others are supplied to it by the sebaceous glands. The lipid components of hair represent 3% of its composition. Produced in the hair bulb they are formed from sterols, fatty acids and ceramides. They are present essentially in the intercellular cement of the cortex and the cuticle and provide the hair with a certain impermeability and ensure the cohesion of the capillary fibre. In-depth study of the latter point has allowed L’Oréal Laboratories to create Ceramide R which behaves in an identical way to natural ceramides, allowing damaged hair to be repaired. The sebaceous glands, next to the hair follicle, supply the sebum. This mixture of triglycerides, waxes and squalene form a film on the surface of the skin and lubricate the hair, thus preserving its suppleness and sheen. Being hormone dependent, the sebum can be produced in excessive quantities, making the hair greasy and heavy. On the other hand, if too little is secreted, the hair becomes damaged, dry and dull.

Coloured from the start
Melanin is responsible for the natural colour of hair. Produced deep in the root by the melanocytes, it is then transmitted to the keratinocyte as the hair is formed. Meaning that hair is coloured right from the outset. The immense range of natural hair colour is absolutely astonishing. However, melanin only represents 1% of the total composition of the hair and only exists in the form of two pigments: eumelanin=darker, and phaeomelanin=lighter. Add in water, which under normal conditions, accounts for 12% to 15% of the composition of hair and other elements present in small quantities. Some of these are provided by the environment. Thus hair’s relative porosity allows it to take up water or water vapour in considerable quantities and trap the mineral salts in it. These form an integral part of the hair shaft. Others come directly from our organism. Since the hair root has a good blood supply, substances from the blood are incorporated into the hair during its formation. Because of this, a hair can supply a great deal of information about its “owner”!

Going Grey ? Aging gracefully

Going Grey?

Aging gracefully means different things to different people. Sometimes it is letting go of things – like those regular salon colour touch ups. Yet if you thought nixing colour would improve your hairs condition, you are wrong. As we age, our scalp, like the skin on our face can become drier. Plus, when the hair loses pigment, it becomes frizzier than before. Don’t give up on pampering yourself altogether. Instead make regular trips to the salon for deep conditioning treatments. Different scalp and hair treatments are available to keep your grey hair soft, tame the frizz, stop the hair from yellowing and keep your hair well nourished. We will design a personalized program just for you. Ask about how to adjust your Make-up colours to complement your new look, and you will be given a quick confidence bust.
