CAPANOVA #care hacks
Care? Yes, that's right, you heard me! A really good styling is preceded by a perfect care! If you don't care enough for your wonderful hair, there will eventually be nothing left for you to style. And we do not want that. Read our Capanova care tips below.
01 - The right men's hair care starts in the shower
Washing hair is part of our daily grooming rituals, but this is where hair care issues begin. Too strong shampoos can add or remove colorants from the hair, rob moisture or make the hair duller and rougher. That's why, even when choosing the right shampoo, it's important to look for good ingredients and test seals such as NATRUE , so you can be sure that the shampoo is ideally suited to your own hair type. We are already planning our own Capanova shampoo for you.
Hair also basically does not need to be washed every day, as the natural oils on the scalp perform a protective function that you should not damage too much. Two to three washes per week are absolutely sufficient.
02 - Conditioner or leave-in for perfectly groomed men's hair?
A conditioner is usually a little longer hair to make the hair easier to comb and smoother, as well as to provide more shine. Conditioners can also convince with special ingredients, but often have a "fast-acting" character and therefore care less in depth.
Leave-in products, such as our CAPANOVA 3 IN 1 Leave-In, are designed to strengthen the hair in depth and effectively build it up from the inside for long-term healthier and more radiant hair.
For this purpose, a leave-in is usually worked into the hair after washing and remains there, e.g. to unfold its full effect in depth overnight.
When it comes to the keyword "perfect care", the care effect of a leave-in product is therefore usually preferable to a pure conditioner. However, if it has to go quickly, a good conditioner can also provide relief. An own Capanova Conditioner is already in planning for you.
03 - The right towel technique
After washing our hair, especially in the cold season, we have to somehow get it dry again, and we often make the mistake of rubbing our hair wildly. They get bruised, broken or in the worst case even torn out. That's why it's important to only ever work on the hair so gently with the towel, if necessary, that it is lightly dabbed or pressed, but never rubbed wildly back and forth. This not only saves the hair a lot of nerves, but also ourselves when we look in the mirror afterwards!
And to all the evening showers: never go to bed with wet hair, because it can break our hair faster. In this case, either allow enough time for air drying, or easily, as in the next tip, take the hair dryer to hand.
04 - More than just hot air: The right blow-dry!
Women have known it for a long time, men often still don't care: Hot blow-drying can damage and dry out the hair in the long run, as the hot air at close range has a direct influence on the moisture balance of the hair and scalp. The very best thing for healthy hair is therefore to let it air dry slowly and in peace. Nevertheless, it is often helpful for styling, especially with shorter hair, to blow-dry the hair briefly into shape.
Therefore, our tip: Set the hair dryer, if absolutely necessary, only very briefly on a hot setting and as soon as the hair on the top of the head is dry, blow dry the longer tips with cold air. In addition, never work at close range, but keep the hairdryer at least 30 cm away from the head. This way, even hot air can't burn the hair.
After blow drying the hair should cool briefly before styling.
05 - Comb or brush - who itches? In case of doubt, the scalp!
The scalp, although usually covered by our hair, is a sensitive part of our body. The skin is rather thin and there is hardly any fat layer underneath, so scratches and bumps are particularly painful here.
Combs seem more precise for many men and are therefore often used to bring short hair into shape. However, combs with very closely spaced "teeth" pose the risk of damaging or even unnoticeably injuring the sensitive scalp. Therefore, brushes with rounded bristles or even nap attachments for an extra scalp massage during use are often more recommended. They are gentle on the scalp and bring the hair into shape just as well. With this, hair care starts with the morning taming. If it has to go quickly, for example, when showering in the gym locker room after a hard workout, then it also does a carefully applied small comb to bring his mat in shape and pluck small strands.
06 - Prevent hair loss in men - Our everyday tips
A certain amount of hair falling out per day is completely normal and no reason to worry. However, if your gut feeling tells you that an unusual amount of hair has been falling out for some time, this is usually already a good indicator of an actual problem. To prevent hair loss for as long as possible, there are some household tips for everyday life:
- Spices for hormone balance: Fenugreek is used especially in Indian cuisine and is included in many curries. Fenugreek has a positive effect on the male hormone balance and activates the supply of the scalp.
- Damaged hair roots: As already mentioned, particularly aggressive shampoos and care products can dry out the hair and hair roots. Therefore, please look for the NATRUE seal when buying.
- Nutrition: We all know this one statement: You are what you eat. And that's exactly how we look. Because what we feed our body not only significantly contributes to how we feel, but also how we look to others. That's why a healthy diet also plays a special role in healthy hair. This means less sugar and fats, but more fruit, vegetables and fresh food. And also the renunciation of meat or the increased consumption of organic meat can contribute to counteracting premature hair loss, since hormone contamination from factory farming is thereby reduced.
- When nothing else works: ...then we wear it with dignity! An appointment with a good hairdresser helps to discover a new styling that suits your own face and makes a virtue out of the supposed necessity. Because with a cool new short haircut, many a compliment has been paid without anyone noticing the recently missing hair.
Our CAPANOVA 3 IN 1 Leave-In is proven to strengthen hair thanks to our deep-acting energy formula and the ingredients caffeine, arginine and ginkgo extract. Prevention instead of aftercare. Give it a try!
07 - Sunscreen for men hair
In the summer, the hair is exposed to particular stress due to heat (increased sweating), UV radiation, wind and, on holiday, often salt water. One more reason to place special emphasis on proper care that brings back nutrients and moisture.
A head covering is of course one way to protect your hair from the sun, but especially in the water this is no longer the best alternative for most people. Our CAPANOVA paste with extra UV protection is therefore a real all-rounder when it comes to beach styles with simultaneous sun protection of sensitive hair. Simply style your hair as usual and move about normally in the city, when going out or on the beach. The hair stays in shape throughout the day and at the same time protected from UV radiation.
08 - Regular visit to the hairdresser
Hair that is too long or has not been cut for a long time can break more easily and this damages the entire hair structure in the long run. In addition, the hair looks less well-groomed, dull and no longer as shiny. It is therefore recommended to visit the hairdresser every 2-3 weeks, or at least once a month, in order to keep the ends of the hair healthy and fresh. Even longer hair grows better again if you give the tips a little renewal every few weeks.
09 - Wellness tip: Mutual head massage
If you have a partner, give each other a head massage once a week. A head massage is not only relaxing, but also stimulates the blood circulation in your scalp, which is very good for your hair. Plus, you'll leave the house feeling wonderfully relaxed the next day!
10 - Show me your hair... what the right styling can still bring out!
Good care is the basis for long-term beautiful hair that is healthy and easy to style. But only the right styling makes the look perfect in the morning and ensures that we feel good throughout the day.
