Hair - more than just a matter of the head

Hair Care & Co.

Hair care should not just be an "annoying" morning routine, but should take an important place in the daily care ritual. Completely independent of the right products, there are a few things that you should rather leave out or do better for proper hair care. Things to know about hair.

High demand for solid products

Water plays a key role in cosmetic products and how they are manufactured. But what happens if water is downgraded to a supporting role and its proportion of the end product is reduced or eliminated entirely? Liquid cosmetic products become solid products, known as bars. This trend is not new, though.

No Poo – better without

Many trends in the cosmetics industry are helped along by companies and manufacturers carrying out intensive research, then constantly improving their products. The "clean beauty" movement also benefits from this approach. When it comes to the "no shampoo" trend, though, it doesn't work. The whole idea is to do without shampoo altogether.

Eyebrows shine all over the face

We have a lot of hairs. Several million, in fact. And hair is important for us humans. They make us look good – or less good. There's even one hairy part of the body that we use to communicate with other people. In other words: You should never neglect your eyebrows. Or underestimate them.

Feeling good even when times are hard

Being diagnosed with a disease is bad enough. If it is accompanied by the prospect of chemotherapy, it becomes all the more difficult to come to terms with and look to the future with optimism. In many cases, hair loss is one of the unpleasant side effects. For many people, this is the most serious side effect of all.

Hair care in the pre-shampoo era

Hair care these days is pretty simple. Go shopping, pick up the right product from the endless range of products and formulae on offer, take it home and apply it. But in times gone by, people had to be far more creative when it came to hair care. Sometimes it even became bizarre and risky.

Barbers – When men enjoy hair care

A visit to the barber has become a much-loved ritual for many men. Although barber shops are still considered a recent trend, they have a long, a very long tradition.

Hair loss and our minds: it's often a vicious circle

We might blame a bad hairstyle on our mood and state of mind, but things become more serious – not to mention more complicated – when the mind is the (or one) cause of hair loss. Without the right support, you become caught in a vicious circle that needs to be broken.

C.J. Walker - Black is beautiful

“Don't dream your life, live your dream.” Sarah Breedlove, born in 1867 on a plantation in Louisiana, left an orphan at age 7, must have planned her life according to this motto, or something similar. Very few people know her name, although many are familiar with the name she later went by: Madam C. J. Walker (madam without an "e")—an icon of hair care from the USA.

Hair Care is multifaceted

Shampoo, conditioner, wax, gel and more. There are plenty of different options when it comes to hair care and styling. There are just as many suggested routines, do's and don'ts too. Here is our brief overview of the simple basics of hair care.

Microproteins for hair & soul

Referred to as skin appendages, we should not underestimate the importance: Hair - protection and hair decoration at the same time. Protection for the skin and body and jewelry for the soul, which makes us look good and healthy, but also helps us to start the day with confidence.

Mathilda Harper – hair care pioneer

A servant girl from Canada had a vision and lived her dream. Through her vision, she changed an entire industry, broke down social barriers and redefined beauty. This is the story of Martha Matilda Harper; a story that has almost been forgotten. It is the story of an American dream, of beauty and wellness.

Hairstyles speak louder than words

If you want to change your appearance, there are a number of options and ways you can do this. New clothes are one option, so is new makeup. A trip to a cosmetic surgeon is certainly another one. But the most common way to change how you look is to go to the hairdresser.
