The ph balance of hair

 The ph of hair ranges between 4.5 and 5.5. When selecting products for used on the hair, its is important to condsider the condition of the hair and the ph of the products. The higher the ph, the more alkaline or harsh the product may be. In case of shampoo, a higher ph may be selected to remove buildup.but this turn can strip hair of neccessary oils,resulting in over-stimulation of the sebaceous oil glads in the scalp and worsening of oily hair. Highly porous hair,often a result of overprocessing,is dry and brittle ( lacking nessary oils)and will require a shampoo with a lower ph and therefore less alkalinity. HAIRBYMZFELICA
