Often referred to as “pH balance” or “pH level,” this is a term we’re all familiar with but do you actually know what it does and why it’s important? When it comes to choosing the perfect hair care product for yourself, you should pick something that has the correct pH level so your hair and scalp is properly cared for.
What is a pH level?
The pH level is responsible for determining how acidic a substance is by using a scale from 0-14, with 0 being the most acidic and 14 being the least acidic. The most ideal pH level for healthy hair is between the levels 4.5 and 5.5.
- 1. Protection for Your Hair and Scalp: Having a healthy pH level is beneficial because it also protects your scalp by sealing the hair’s cuticles, locking in moisture, reducing frizz, preserving your hair color and adding shine. By applying the CHI Ionic Color Lock Treatment, you are sure to increase elasticity and prevent your hair color from fading.
- 2. Promotes Healthy Hair Growth: Using hair care products that have a high pH level is good for you because it can help maintain the proper acidity your hair needs in order to be healthy without releasing any moisture. You may often find a high pH level in hair products that are used to create volume. Using the CHI Infra Treatment is good for improving the hair’s elasticity and making the strands stronger.
- 3. Maintaining Moisture: The key to long, gorgeous locks of hair is moisture. When your hair and scalp begin to lack moisture, it also becomes weak and you’re likely to experience breakage. If you haven’t already, start using pH balanced products to nourish your hair strands without bothering your hair’s sebum levels. The CHI Infra Shampoo is good for lightly cleansing your hair while also enhancing the moisture balance for the scalp and hair, making it more manageable.
- 4. Your hair is ultimately a part of who you are so it is important to take the health of your hair as seriously as you would for your body. Know that your hair is in great condition when using CHI Infra products!
