Skinification involves using ingredients of skin-care products in hair-care treatment. It’s all about integrating the same ingredients of skincare into products such as shampoos, conditioners, and hair styling treatments into. 

No longer are three-in-one hair products the best choice for protecting and maintaining healthy hair. Through skinification of hair, each product is different for each hair type. However, this hair care routine requires you to find the right ingredients and products that fit your unique hair needs. 

With a focus on the scalp, practicing skinification can make all the difference on the health of your hair. However, it is important to understand which ingredients will be the most beneficial for you based on your hair type and its needs.

Micellar Waters are cleansing waters often used in facial cleansers. They are gentle on sensitive skin yet are strong enough to remove most makeup. You may be asking how this can benefit you in your hair routine. The micelles in micellar water are actually tiny molecules that can be used to benefit your haircare routine through shampoos as well. If you often struggle with dandruff and product buildup,  then we recommend taking on skinification of hair through micellar water products. For example the Love Beauty and Planet Melon Water & Hyaluronic Micellar Shampoo. Complete your shampoo routine with the coordinating Conditioner as well.

Another ingredient that works best to hydrate skin is Squalane. For haircare, Squalane helps maintain shine and moisture in the hair. It also helps prevent dry hair from breaking, while limiting clogged pores. You can find Squalane in hair and scalp oils, such as Suave Professionals Castor Oil & Mango Butter for Natural Hair and Scalp Oil.
