BioMethod’s approach is a revolutionary new concept in hair care that treats hair as part of the living body, putting the nutritional needs of the hair first with safe, effective, and proper cleansing.
The active ingredients in BioMethod cleansers not only work with all types of hair, but they are a remarkable scientific leap ahead in hair care.
Hair problems begin in the sebaceous glands within the scalp. These glands secrete sebum (commonly known as “Natural Hair Oils”) that coat hair and the scalp. These natural oils are mistakenly thought to have hydrating and moisturizing properties, however, we now know this is not true. Current research indicates that the Hydrolipidic Film (sebum) is the hair and scalp’s first layer of defense against harmful bacteria. The purpose of sebum is to trap dirt, debris, toxins, free radicals, and bacteria before any of it reaches the scalp and deteriorates hair and stunts growth. Even though the Hydrolipidic Film (sebum) is vital to hair and scalp health, it is important to regularly cleanse this from the hair and scalp to remove the trapped debris, thus maintaining optimal hair growth.
Traditional shampoos aggressively remove sebum build-up in hair. This strips hair of essential minerals and trace elements, damages the protective layer, dries out the hair, and ultimately contributes to hair loss. This phenomenon resulted in the widely held belief that the less you wash your hair, the healthier it is. New research suggests that it is vital to wash the hair of sebum daily, but most importantly, using products that remove sebum without stripping hair of its necessary nutrients.
