Sebum, what is it?

Le sébum, qu’est-ce que c’est ?

Today, we are going to talk about an important subject for the health of your hair: sebum. But what exactly is sebum? The Madam President team explains everything below! ?

Sebum is an oily substance secreted naturally by the sebaceous glands (organ located in the dermis). They are responsible for the synthesis and secretion of sebum. What is part of the composition of the skin's hydrolipidic film.

Sebum is present all over the body, including the scalp and has the role of creating a protective barrier for the skin and hair, lubricating them against external aggressions. However, when excess sebum is produced in hair , it can make hair greasy and look “unkempt”. Excess sebum can sometimes cause hair loss . In addition, excessive secretion of sebum suffocates the hair bulb and leads to hair loss. Luckily for you, Madam President has everything planned with her range of Anti-Hair Loss treatments for all hair types!

Sebum with straight hair:

For straight hair, hair sebum is a natural ally to make it shiny and soft. However, it is important to wash your hair once or twice a week to avoid overproduction of sebum as this can make it greasy and sticky. In order not to damage your hair , wash it with a gentle shampoo like our Anti- Hair Loss Shampoo , Resolution No. 5 especially for straight to wavy hair (Don't panic if you have curly or frizzy/frizzy hair , there is also a Madame La Présidente shampoo suitable for your hair type ). For even more protection, you can also use a lightweight conditioner to keep your hair healthy and frizz-free.

Sebum with curly hair:

If you have curly hair, you've probably noticed that your curls are drier than straight hair and that's completely normal! This is because hair sebum has difficulty distributing itself evenly throughout your curls. To prevent your hair from becoming too dry and brittle, we recommend oil-based hair products to help hydrate your curls and keep them shiny and bouncy.

For example, the Resolution N°6 mask, My Nutri-active mask , will help your hair and nourish it deeply, while respecting your curls with its ultra-natural formulation, composed of 97.6% ingredients of natural origin. To perfect your curly hair and define it well, we also recommend our Curl Definer, perfect for each type of curl from 2C to 4C. My Curl Definer your best ally to seal in hydration, nourish your curls and without cardboard effect!! Plus, it smells divine ?

Sebum with curly hair:

Finally, for curly and frizzy hair the sebum in the hair may be a little more difficult to manage due to the thick texture of the hair. Curly and frizzy hair tends to be drier and more brittle than other hair types. It is therefore important to use suitable and nourishing products to help maintain nutrition. You can also use hair oils (like nigel oil or shea butter) to nourish and protect your curly and frizzy hair. Indeed, this type of hair needs a greater supply of oil than others. That’s good, all our shampoos are formulated according to each hair type. Our shampoo dedicated to frizzy and curly hair therefore has a higher oil composition.

In addition, as for our friends with curly hair, you can integrate Madam President's OUT range into your hair routine:

    • With Resolution N°5 My Strengthening and Anti-Hair Loss Shampoo for curly to frizzy hair

    • With Resolution No. 6 My Nutri-Active Mask

    • With My Curl Definer, these products have been formulated to offer the best to your hair. ?

Do you remember the “sebum cure” challenge during confinement?

The principle was very simple: Do not wash your hair for 1 week, 2 weeks or even a month. While brushing your hair to diffuse the sebum in the hair. Is it a good alternative when you want to nourish your hair and you don't have to go out ? !

In conclusion, hair sebum is a natural substance that is essential for the health of your hair, but it is important to know how to treat it according to your hair type so that it becomes your best natural ally!
