Hair expert Sacha explains five hair myths


We meet Sacha Schuette, the hair expert of Pantene Pro-V, who has worked with Sila Sahin, Palina Rojinski, Karoline Herfurth and Nazan Eckes. In the expert check, he answers our questions. He has examined the following five myths:

It’s good for the hair if you change the care products more often.


Sacha: “Jein It is more important to use the appropriate care series for his specific hair type and the corresponding hair needs.If you have found these and uses them as a system care (shampoo & conditioner of the same series with each hair wash and once a week a cure instead of Conditioners) is more like “never change a winning team!” But also hair needs can change over time (enhanced styling, coloring, hormonal condition, etc.) – here it is advisable to look again and again, whether the skin care series that uses woman is still fitting. ”

Frequent hair-washing makes the hair greasy and is not good for the hair.


Yes, frequent hair washing can stimulate the sebum production of the scalp, which can manifest itself in greasy or fast greasy hair, but infrequent hair washing can cause the pores
How often you should wash your hair, however, varies from woman to woman, and as long as the style still looks good you do not need to wash it – as soon as the hair is greasy As a rule of thumb for shampooing you can say: as often as necessary, as rarely as possible – but always with conditioner! “

Rinse the hair after showering with cold water ensures shine.
You should not wash or rinse your hair either too hot or very cold, as extreme heat differences can weaken the hair, causing it to break more quickly, and it is better to wash your hair with lukewarm water.
The lime content of the water also plays a role: the harder the water, the less shine.

Shine is created primarily by the fact that the hair surface is smooth, so that incident light can be reflected. A smooth hair surface is THE sign of healthy hair. Heat styling, chemical stress from coloration or even mechanical stress, for example, attack the hair surface, making it rough. With the appropriate care you can smooth hair surface and thus give the hair back its shine. The Pantene Pro-V 1 Minute Magic Ampoule manages to straighten hair damage over the last 6 months in just 1 minute, giving the hair that sheen and smoothness. ”

Gray hair should not be pulled out or plucked.


“The phrase ‘on a plucked gray hair is followed by two new ones.” A hair is not a hydra, although every gray hair grows gray, but a hair follicle does not suddenly make two new hairs when plucking one.
However, one should be careful when plucking that the hair root is not damaged. The latter can have the consequence that no hair grows at this point – which certainly does not have the desired effect in the long run.
If you do not want to make friends with gray hair, I recommend to treat gray hair with a color: highlights are well suited to hide the first gray hair – if the gray is over, is suitable for a coloring of the entire hair.
BUT: Also in 2019 “Granny Hair” is again trendy! “
