What is PH Balance?
PH ( Potential Hydrogen ) balance measures the acidity and alkalinity level in your hair. Ph values are measured on a scale from 1-10. The lower the PH the less acidic while the higher values contain more acid. The normal PH balance of our hair ranges from 4.5-5.5. Natural hair acidity prevents fungi and bacteria in the hair and scalp, which helps keep the hair cuticle sealed and healthy. Many hair products can disturb the natural PH in the hair. I suggest using a product once a week that will clarify hard water and sebum off the scalp. A clarifying shampoo and conditioner will restore your hair making it shiny, bouncy, and full of life. Malibu 1000 makes a product called Hard Water. I use this product and reap the rewards of healthy hair. Not only is the product easy to use, it’s inexpensive too. You also can go to your local hair stylist for a clarifying treatment layered by a conditioning treatment. If you go to the salon for service, I suggest going once a month or when your hair looks dull and lifeless. Always remember to wash regularly with products purchased from a salon or beauty supply store.
Feel beautiful, Be beautiful!
