Use of flat iron, hair dryer, chemical procedures, baths with very hot water, exposure to sun, sea, swimming pool ... As much as you try to avoid the wires suffer attacks almost daily, which causes the hair from getting ressacados, brittle, frizzy and lifeless.

The capillary schedule (CC) came then with the proposal to "recover" the liveliness of the most varied types of hair, taking into account the particularities of each case, efficiently and completely.

Sylvio Rezende, hairdresser Tony Hall By Sylvio Rezende, defines the capillary schedule as a "hair treatment project table reconstruction, hydration and capillary mass returns and vitamins for hair."

In other words, the capillary schedule is "a schedule of treatments to replenish the nutrients needed for the wires are always healthy", as claimed by the hairdresser Luiz Eduardo Moreira, unit manager Jacques Janine.

With this system of treatment, which is done in a month, and can be repeated as often as necessary, the wires are hydrated, nourished and rebuilt, through weekly doses of products and different shades.

It sounds complicated, but not both. a little patience to understand how the schedule and how it will be helpful to the needs of your hair in particular is necessary, and willingness to follow the treatment correctly. The advantages, however, generally outweigh: softer, with full brightness and healthy hair.

To Rao, the capillary schedule is very efficient and super recommended for people who have undergone chemical attack, such as smoothing, relaxing, progressive among others. "In practice, say, it is like a table suggested by a doctor. Such as their medicines and their hours and patterns of use. Since the schedule is used properly, we will have an excellent recovery of the wires, "he says.

Moreira adds that the capillary schedule is extremely valuable for those with discipline and organization required to follow it.

Luiz Moreira points out that the schedule lasts one month. "Having need for continuity, it can be repeated until the strands are healthy, gloss and resistance," he says.

Rezende suggests that the schedule is used, on average, up to three months or, in cases of great loss of hair mass, to recover all the elasticity and health.

It is worth noting that there is the so-called "official capillary schedule" consisting of eight moisturizing three nutrition, and a reconstruction of the month. Generally it is suitable for those starting with the procedure. Then, with hair longer with a better look, one can bet on a custom schedule.

Currently, incidentally, it is not hard to find on the Internet different types of schedule, and they serve as a guide especially for those just starting out, but the idea is that the person adapt the steps of treatment to the needs of your hair. Not forgetting to always respect the minimum interval between the 48-hour procedures.

How it works: Moreira explains that the hydration water and restores those nutrients that are part of the cream formulation used. Immediately the hair is softer to the touch and brighter.

Who needs: Rao notes that all hair must be hydrated, even the virgin hair, as the sun aggression, beach, pool, dryer, flat iron etc. damage and open the scales, thus appear split ends, among other problems. Moreira adds that hydration is recommended for all hair at least once a week.

Excess use causes: possible damage to the wire. "The care that must be taken is in excess of creams on the scalp, which can cause oil and scaling," says Rezende hairdresser. It must comply with the minimum interval of 48 hours between sessions, and the cream can not stay in longer hair than stipulated in the product package.

moisturizing substances: Vegetable glycerin, glycerin (glycol, glycerin, gliceryD) Bepantol, protein elastin and collagen (hydrolized collagen protein), botanical extracts, panthenol, aloe vera, vitamins, cetyl alcohol, cetearyl alcohol, sucrose, oat protein, rice protein, silk protein, hydrolyzed soy protein, hydrolyzed corn protein, honey, chocolate, among others.

How it works: according to Moreira, the main nutrition goal is to replace the lipids needed to return the natural oils of the wires.

Who needs: people who are with the dry, opaque wires and without motion, highlights Moreira. The result is more silky hair, weight and brightness.

Excess use causes: "Excess oil, leaving greasy and heavy hair," says Moreira.

How it works: Sylvio Rezende stressed that the reconstruction resets mass and protein in the wires, returning stiffness and strength to hair. Moreira points out that the main protein that makes up the wires is the keratin, so it is extremely important to realize keratin recharge at least once a month. The hair will be more full-bodied and strong.

Who needs: people with porous and brittle wires.

Excess use causes: too can tighten the wires. Rezende reinforces that excess protein can cause a degradation of the wire. "This process of replacing protein should be done at least every 15 days (and no less than that), but the wires will be very hard and thus can break," he says.

reconstructive substances: keratin, arginine, collagen, cysteine, creatine, amino acids and wheat protein, etc.

Importantly, in the phase of reconstruction (or restore) the person may choose to use a keratin replenishing or reconstructive mask. What is not recommended is to put liquid keratin in a mask which is already reconstruction (already have keratin). This is because excess keratin makes the hard wires, which can lead to breakage.

Below hairdresser Luiz Moreira suggests capillaries schedules for specific cases. Remember, however, that there is no rule. The idea is you bet on procedures (hydration, nutrition and reconstruction) and go feeling like your hair reacts, managing to detect "what he needs most."

Moreira reinforces the importance of respecting the minimum interval of 48 hours between the procedures. For example, if you made a hydration on Monday at 19h, you can make another hydration, nutrition or reconstruction only after 19h Wednesday.

Damping is one way to make the stage of nutrition in the capillary schedule. Vegetable oils and butters are used for hair nutrition work, replenish the natural fat of the wires, providing balance and health. The result is a more silky hair, weighing, shine and frizz-free.

If you are wondering what exactly is the difference between wetting and capillary nutrition, the answer is: the wetting is a nutrition made exclusively with oils or vegetable butters (which excludes the use of masks to nutrition, except unique to wetting) .

The wetting can only be done with pure oils or vegetable butters (100% natural). They are easily found in health food houses in supermarkets or pharmacies (eg castor oil) and most do not cost much.

There is no rule in time for the wetting. There are those who prefer to get wet hair and those who prefer to make dry hair. Because each hair is unique, it is best you test and find out what is best for their wires (both in relation to the chosen product, as the manner of performing the procedure).

However, a known step-by-step is:

  1. The hair does not need to be clean and must be dry;
  2. Divide the hair into strands and apply the oil / butter in each of them, from root to tip;
  3. Massage the scalp to absorb the nutrients it also;
  4. Let stand for about an hour and a half;
  5. To remove, wash the wires, preferably with a transparent shampoo, but you already know and do not dry out the wires.
  6. Completely remove oil from hair by washing more than once if necessary.
  7. Finally, you can use a conditioner to close the wires cuticles.

Among the oils / butters most used in the wetting process are:

  • Specific masks wetting (eg Wetting Lola Oliva);
  • Coconut oil;
  • Sweet almond oil;
  • Castor oil;
  • Extra virgin olive oil;
  • avocado oil;
  • Hazelnut oil;
  • Argan oil;
  • Sunflower oil;
  • Linseed oil;
  • Grape seed oil;
  • cupuaçu butter;
  • murmuru butter;
  • Cocoa butter;
  • cupuaçu butter.

There are also those who prefer to leave the wetting action of an overnight hair, sleeping with the oil on the wires. In this case, it is recommended to protect the pillow with a towel so that the oil does not accumulate there.

How to know if my hair needs M, N or R?

This is probably the most common question when it comes to hair schedule. How to tell if the hair needs hydration, nutrition or reconstruction?

Moreira points out that what defines necessity is the wire condition: "if he is healthy, the sessions are fewer and the more damaged are the wires, more sessions will be required. But regardless, the three procedures are suitable for all hair types, since everyone goes through one process that may prove to sensitize them, whether climatic factors (wind, pollution) are chemical factors (straightening, colorations). "

To know what your hair needs more, you should consider it: in what state he is? You are breaking? Dull? Unbalanced? Thin? With split ends? Review these and other points.

It is also important to think through what procedures your wires have passed: dye? Straightening? Discoloration? Progressive?

And also consider if your hair is thin, smooth, thick, curly, oily etc.

It is difficult to talk about a rule, but the guidelines below can help you understand what your hair need most at the moment:

  • Hair dull, armed, embarrassed, ressacados: surely they need hydration. And remember: all hair needs moisture.
  • Hair with frizz, misaligned and porous: probably need hydration or wetting.
  • very fine hair, with double and brittle tips: probably need reconstruction.

Recalling that every hair need hydration, nutrition and reconstruction at some point. A hair today need a lot of hydration, for example, may, here a month or two, you need more reconstruction.

An important factor is to evaluate the porosity of your hair. The type of porosity indicates the ability of its threads have to absorb water and also substances (moisturizing, nourishing) you use to treat and care for them on a daily basis. Ideally the balance: neither too little nor porous.

If the porosity is too high, it means that the wires cuticles are open, so you can make hair treatments, but the wires do not always retain what is necessary. On the other hand, if the porosity is too low, the cuticles are closed tightly, also resistant to treatment, since it can not absorb the necessary substances.

porosity test

To assess the porosity of your hair, use the glass test: just grab a glass of water at room temperature and put a strand of your hair clean (without any product) in, leaving there for seven minutes.

If the wire floated, you have low porosity. With tightly closed cuticle, your hair is probably resistant to creams and oils, leaving the product penetrate. Oil and heat can be your allies. When hydrate, take hot shower to steam in and open up your cuticle then apply the mask, then seal the wires with oils such as coconut or avocado, for example. constant wetting is important to help return the balance of the wires.

If the thread was in the middle of the cup, you have normal porosity. It is ideal, its cuticle is slightly elevated, thus allows the treatment to be absorbed. It is worth noting that those who have normal hair porosity does not require hydration so constantly, since the wires easily absorb moisture.

If the wire sank, you have high porosity. With very open cuticles, the hair absorbs more moisture than is able to retain, in addition to having more difficulty to retain the substances offered in treatments. This type of hair generally has uneven texture, is dull, frizzy and easily embarrassed. Protein in this case is very important. But of course, without exaggeration, after all, the excess leaves the hair hard and leads to breakage.

Below you can see the clarification to the main questions on the topic:

1. What shampoo / conditioner should I use during the month of CC?

"The recommended is that you always use the full range of the same manufacturer, as the products are developed so that they complement," says Luiz Moreira.

Kely Cristina Almeida, a hairdresser in Piracicaba (SP), suggests use during capillary schedule, a shampoo and conditioner that you enjoy. "If you have the opportunity to buy the shampoo of the same brand mask better, but is up to you. But, in general, I do not recommend that people with very damaged hair using shampoo antirresíduo ... should use no more than a transparent shampoo rebuild "he says.

2. After the whole process I usually wash my hair and apply conditioner?

"It is not necessary, because the creams used in the processes already have a conditioning function," explains Moreira.

3. You can make an inexpensive CC with only three products (a mask, extra virgin olive oil and vinegar)?

According to Kely, the use of these products can offer good results, but it all depends on the person's hair. "It's all very relative, what is good for me may not be right for you. Hair that is not damaged so might benefit from this type of treatment. But in the case of a totally damaged, lifeless hair, you probably need a more complex treatment, with very specific products. So if in doubt, it is always nice to talk to a professional, "he says.

4. After making the CC for a month, when I can get back to doing again?

Moreira explains that the CC can be repeated monthly, by the hair to be healthy, shiny, soft to touch and movement.

5. Where to start the capillary schedule?

"It is quite valid research on the subject and thus know better your hair, to understand what kind of treatment he needs most receive. If in doubt, talk to a hairdresser you trust. A valid tip is to start by capillary official schedule ... Then when you're already more familiar with treatment, you get to customize your schedule. Remembering always that every hair needs nutrition, hydration and reconstruction, then there is no great risk to bet on them, of course with good sense, nothing exaggeration is good for the wires, "explains Kely.
