SKINIFICATION: How to care for your hair as you care for your skin


The concept of skinification does not only refer to skin care for the face and body. It can also be found in the field of hair care, where the focus is entirely on the scalp.

What is hair skinification?

Hair skinification is based on the importance of caring for our hair, as it is an extension of our skin and therefore requires similar care. Just as we care for the health and appearance of our skin, hair skinification focuses on addressing the specific needs of the scalp and hair.

How to create a hair skinification?

It is very important to have a proper hair routine in order to care for and transform the health of your scalp. Here are some easy tips on how to take care of your hair:

  • Assess your hair and scalp: Before you begin, it's important to understand the specific needs of your hair and scalp. See if your hair tends to be dry, oily, frizz-prone or dandruff-prone. Look out for potential problems, such as itchiness, irritation or scalp sensitivity. By doing this test, which will provide us with your scalp type, we can advise you on choosing the right products for your hair type.


  • Eliminate products with harsh ingredients: The first step in hair skinification is to get rid of hair products that contain harsh ingredients such as sulphates, parabens and silicones. These ingredients can damage the hair and scalp in the long run. Check the labels on your current products and look for gentler, more natural alternatives like us. Join the Low Poo movement1.


  • Do your research and choose the right products: Look for gentle, sulphate-free shampoos, natural conditioners and hair masks, essential oils and other products formulated with moisturising and nourishing ingredients. Opt for products that suit your hair's specific needs, whether you need extra moisture and frizz control, or hair strengthening.


  • Establish a regular hair care routine: Consistency is key to getting results. Establish a hair care routine that fits your lifestyle. For example, wash your hair with mild shampoo two to three times a week, followed by a moisturising conditioner or mask. You can also incorporate additional treatments, such as hair oils or scalp scrubs, as needed.


  • Massage your scalp: During your wash routine, take time to gently massage your scalp with your fingertips. This stimulates blood circulation and promotes a healthy scalp.


  • Protect your hair: Avoid excessive use of heat tools such as straighteners and blow dryers, as they can damage hair. Always use heat protectors before applying heat and try to let your hair dry naturally as much as possible.


  • Maintain a healthy diet: Remember that hair health is also related to a balanced diet. Make sure you eat a diet rich in vitamins, minerals and protein to nourish your hair from within.

What are the benefits of skinification?


It is important to care for the skin of the scalp and hair in the same way that we care for our skin, both facial and body. By doing so, we can gain several benefits, such as a healthier scalp, stronger and more resilient hair, reduced dryness and itchiness, and an overall healthier and more radiant appearance.

1. Healthy scalp: Hair skinification emphasises the care and balance of the scalp. By providing gentle cleansing and proper hydration, a healthy scalp can be maintained, free from dryness, irritation and flaking.

2. Stronger, more resilient hair: Like healthy skin, a balanced and well-cared for scalp promotes an environment conducive to healthy hair growth. The result is hair that is stronger, more resilient and less prone to breakage and shedding.

3. Deep hydration and nourishment: Hair skinification uses conditioners, masks and hair treatments that provide deep hydration and nourishment to the hair. This helps restore lost moisture, keep hair hydrated and soft, and prevent dryness and brittleness.

4. Reducing dryness and frizz: By avoiding the use of harsh products and restricting the use of heat, hair skinification helps to reduce dryness and frizz in the hair. Resulting in softer, more manageable hair that is less prone to static.

5. Healthy shine and appearance: By focusing on the overall health of the hair, hair skinification helps to improve the appearance of the hair. Well-groomed, hydrated and nourished hair takes on a natural shine and a healthy, radiant appearance.

6. Reduced residue build-up: By avoiding products with harsh ingredients such as sulphates and silicones, hair skinification helps to reduce residue build-up on the hair. This prevents hair from becoming dull, heavy and lifeless.
