    Hair today takes a beating!

    It is no surprise that more women of all ages are reporting hair loss

    and thinning hair due to stress, dieting, genetics, illness, surgery

    and even hormones can all cause hair loss.

    Even common beauty practices such as tight braids,

    blow drying, heat styling, and hair colouring can take a heavy toll.

    No one likes losing their hair but for a woman it can be devastating.

    Here are Do’s and Don’ts from the experts at éprouvage

     to help protect your locks! éprouvage is a hair care line

    that features a progressive plant cell technology specially

    developed to promote scalp health to create the ideal environment

    to produce stronger, healthier hair.


    Eat the right foods!   Without enough protein your body can’t

    replace the hair that you naturally shed every day.

    An Iron deficiency can actually contribute to more hair loss than the

    regular 50-100 daily strands.

    Eating foods with plenty of vitamin C helps in the absorption of iron.

    Try to combine iron-rich foods with those that are high in vitamin C

    to get the most out of iron. Vitamin C also helps you’re body’s production

    of collagen, which in turn strengthens the capillaries which supply your hair shafts?

    Treat your hair to a weekly nourishing hair masque.

    Pay attention to ingredients in your hair care products

    If you are noticing more hair loss than usually, try products that contain Redensyl.

    It was originally used in eyelash growth products and it is gentle enough for daily use.

    I tried éprouvage over the past few months and I am impressed. I have thick but fine hair. I colour it as well as heat style it, so I try to pamper it as much as possible with the best shampoos, conditioners and treatments I can find.

    I used éprouvage Restorative Scalp Serum, which is described as “a potent scalp treatment that features an award winning ingredient, Reydensl that works to target hair at a cellular level”.

    According to the company, “Hair goes through 3 phases and Redensyl helps to keep hair in the growing phase longer resulting in fuller, thicker hair and less hair fall.” The serum is also supposed to reduce the appearance of hair fall by up to 17%, promoting the appearance of hair growth by up to 214 percent.

    It also reduces some of the primary issues causing thinning hair and hair loss and nourishes the scalp, helping provide an optimal environment for hair growth.

    I found the éprouvage gently fortifying shampoo and éprouvage gently fortifying conditioner very soothing. My hair looked great – very full and bouncy. I  applied the éprouvage Restorative Scalp Serum and the replenishing leave-in conditioner. The leave-in conditioner left my hair shiny and soft.  This is a great line if you have hair that needs gentle care.  If you have tried other hair serums and found they left your sticky  you  won’t have that problem with the éprouvage Restorative Scalp Serum. 

    Finally a few Don’ts:

    Don’t consume artificial sweetener aspartame as it has been

    cited as a cause of hair thinning and hair loss.

    Food additives can also have a negative effect on your hair.

    Raw egg whites contain a substance that binds biotin, which prevents its absorption.

    According to the American Academy of Dermatology,

    taking to many vitamin A-containing supplements or medications

    could trigger hair loss.

    Be gentle when styling your hair.

    Turn down the heat on styling tools to minimize damage to your hair.

    Be gentle when brushing.

    Comb knots out from the ends up to avoid breakage.

    Never brush wet hair. Instead, use a wide tooth comb to gently disentangle.

    Also never rub or twist your wet hair. Instead, pat it gently.

    DolceDolce tip:

    Consider using a special microfiber hair towel or turban to avoid

    damaging delicate weak follicles.

    I love the AQUIS hair turban. It helps dry frizz-free without damage.


    The éprouvage hair care line is priced from $15 to $30.
