Healthy hair – enter the world of hair exfoliation

We're all familiar with exfoliating our body to scrub off dead cells and promote renewal for soft, glowing skin, right? So, what if there were a way to apply the same technique to hair?

Enter hair exfoliation, a method that not only cleans the scalp and prevents flakes, but also cleanses the hair shaft itself, removing buildup and repairing the hair fiber for healthy-looking, voluminous locks!

Why should you exfoliate your hair?


Skin shedding is the body's natural way of getting rid of dead skin cells so that new, healthy ones can come to the surface. Unfortunately, when this happens on the scalp, these skin cells can build up and turn into visible white flakes, often known as dandruff. Hair exfoliation prevents this by gently removing the dead cells and moisturizing the scalp to promote healthy skin renewal.
Think of all those products you use in hair styling – from spray to gel and even color treatments. Over time they build up, adding weight to hair and leaving it dull and lackluster. Hair exfoliation involves cleansing the hair fiber from root to tip, without removing its color, leaving hair lighter and more naturally voluminous.


How is hair exfoliation different from a skin scrub?


You can exfoliate your hair as part of your haircare routine in the shower! Forget the microbeads we often use in skin scrubs, you can exfoliate by replacing your regular conditioner with a gentle cleansing conditioner such as those from the Serie Expert collection. Four different cleansers are tailored for individual concerns: Absolut Repair is for highly damaged hair, Curl Contour is for natural curls, Vitamino Color is for color-treated hair, and Liss Unlimited is for rebellious locks. Each one is free from parabens and harsh salts, making them ideal for sensitive hair suffering from dullness and build-up.

You do it for your skin, so why not give your hair the same TLC?
