Your allies for beautiful hair

The art of beautiful, soft, shiny, bouncy hair! A range of external stress factors can damage our hair and affect its beauty: sun, wind, water, pollution... All these factors affect the quality of the hair fibre and cause our hair to become dull and dry with multiple split ends. To counteract these adverse effects, a varied, balanced diet is essential, to nourish the fibres from within and provide them with all the nutrients they need.

A range of ingredients are available to help you maintain your hair in good condition, especially at specific times of the year, particularly at seasonal changes or when you feel the need for a boost. Read on to find out more about your hair’s closest allies.

Les acides aminés soufrés

Sulphur-containing amino acids

They are essential for hair growth.

  • Methionine: this essential amino acid is a precursor and an activator of the keratin synthesis.
  • Cystine: made up of two cysteine molecules linked by a disulfide bridge, this sulphur-containing amino acid is particularly interesting when combined with Vitamin B6.

Essential vitamins for healthy hair

  • The B Vitamins are essential for beautiful hair and keratin synthesis. Indeed, Keratin is synthesized from  sulphur-containing amino acids, with the help of B vitamins, among others.. Vitamin B6 helps ensure normal synthesis of cysteine, which is then used to produce cystine. Vitamin B6 also contributes to the normal metabolism of proteins such as keratin. Finally, it also helps hormonal activity.
  • Vitamin B9, otherwise known as folic acid, plays a role in cell division and the metabolism of amino acids.
  • Vitamin B8 (called vitamin B7 or biotin in some countries) helps keep our hair healthy, supple, shiny and resilient.
  • Vitamin D3 also participates in the process of cell division.
