Your Beautiful Hair, Part 3: Your hair reflects the stress in your life

Your hair is a sensitive subject.

I’ve been working with hair almost all my life – from early days in my family’s hair salon in the Netherlands to training in Paris to creating shampoos and other haircare formulas for our company for forty years. One thing I’ve learned over the years: Your hair reflects how much stress you have in your life.

Of course, the more you know about hair, the more you realize that the condition of your hair tells a lot. Split ends, snarls, lack luster, or just plain dull hair? It’s very possible the damage is not from outside; there may be something internally gone wrong.

Sudden changes in hair color or condition? An indicator that it may be time to head for the doctor. Extreme stress? An illness or an accident can be the cause for your hair to change color or texture or even fall out in clumps.

Stress can cause major changes in your hair’s condition.

When you experience stress, your body needs its resources to cope. All kinds of processes go on throughout your system to try to bring you back to a more normal state. Even if you try to hide tiredness and stress with makeup on your face, no amount of cosmetics will be able to disguise your need to ‘de-stress’ – because your hair will give you away!

When under stress, be sure to ‘feed’ your hair with nutrient-rich shampoos and conditioners to help it return to the healthiest possible state.

When your scalp is too dry, too oily or plagued with dandruff, healthy looking hair won’t happen unless you incorporate scalp care into your hair regime. Over the years, Paul Penders has developed a great hair and scalp treatment which delivers beautiful, healthy hair. The important first step is to cleanse the scalp thoroughly. Powerful rainforest herbs from Malaysia slowly saturate and purify the scalp while loosening dandruff. For the healthiest hair, the process is as follow:

    Gently massage until scalp feels warm. Leave in for 10 minutes (60 max) and cover hair with a plastic shower cap or wrap in a towel or cloth for best results.
  2. Shampoo clean with our Time Release Jasmine Shampoo
    After scalp cleansing, wash thoroughly with our scented Jasmine Shampoo to ensure a healthy foundation for beautiful hair.

My Secret for Beautiful Hair


Let me share my professional secret for beautiful hair.
 
Katja Penders….: “Our family’s tradition and experience in cosmetology goes back for over 100 years in Europe, USA and now in Asia. I have seen hundreds of examples of how to obtain beautiful hair.

But I also learned that the secret to having beautiful hair starts by maintaining a healthy scalp.
When the scalp is too dry, too oily or plagued with dandruff, healthy hair won’t happen unless we incorporate a “scalp-care” treatment into your hair-care regime.
Over the years we developed a 4-STEP Hair & Scalp Treatment program where the very first important step is to cleanse the scalp.
Paul Penders hair care range contains a wonderful and unique product called Pegaga Scalp Cleansing Treatment. Pegaga is a powerful Malaysian herb that grows wild in this great tropical Langkawi GEOPARK rainforest island.
It is used for centuries by local people for cleansing the body and beauty treatments. It is a powerful herb that deeply cleanses impurities from the scalp while at the same time takes care of dandruff problems.
One full treatment is described below which should be done twice a week until enough improvement is made. Later on it can be used as a healthy and relaxing total hair and scalp maintenance treatment every 2 weeks, or once a month.
I know several people who started using the treatments and the result is more beautiful, healthy, shiny, and fuller hair.
 
Please follow this easy 4-step process:
 

 

And interesting enough…. people report not only more beautiful hair and dandruff disappears, but some told me their headaches as well!!   For us at Paul Penders, that makes perfect sense!”

A different approach to shampooing hair

A different approach to shampooing hair
Paul Penders Time Release Jasmine Shampoo uses a unique Two-Step washing process that includes a “Time Release” approach. During scalp-cleansing and hair-washing (2 different steps) not much suds appear. Only by adding a little bit of water to the hair during washing, the natural shampoo formula “breaks open” and some gentle suds appears to cleanse hair beautifully.
 
Why is Paul Penders shampoo created with a 2-Step formula?
During application (Step 1) the scalp is being cleansed, which is important because a clean scalp is essential to healthy and beautiful hair. Since the shampoo is especially made that foam does not develop right away, therefore our shampooing process is called ‘Time-Release’ or ‘Time Delayed’.
 
As the scalp is gently massaged first, our precious certified organic herbal extract relaxes and cleanses scalp.
Step 2 starts by adding a little bit of water and when the formula “breaks-open” some foam develops only right now. Thus Step 1 is cleansing the scalp and Step 2 is the actual washing of hair.

A special washing process that no other shampoo offers.
The Jasmine Time Release shampoo suds are kept to a minimum because soap-suds tend to dry out hair. It strips hair of essential moisture as well. While almost all shampoos are designed to create a very rich lather using chemicals like Sodium Lauryl (and other) Sulphates, our natural shampoo makes only gentle suds that are derived from sugar. Thus shampoo-suds from a natural source that foams moderately and is exceptional mild for hair and scalp.

Shampoo-suds do not provide any health benefit to hair.
At the contrary; studies over more than 25 years showed that too much shampoo suds tends to weaken hair over time.
One of the great ingredients we use in our natural Jasmine Time Release Shampoo is pure olive oil that has been used for centuries by Mediterranean women as an essential beauty treatment for healthy hair.

Olive oil also tends to beautify hair over time resulting in fuller and shiny hair.
 
All Paul Penders natural cosmetics contain LevensESSENTIE Gold®
an extract of 22 certified organic herbs from the East and West, a traditional recipe passed down from Paul’s grandmother. We tested this way of cleansing hair for many years and now people use it in all parts of the world. There is no other shampoo available same as ours!
 
Paul Penders Natural Hair Care Products Are Legendary.
Just 6 exceptional high-quality haircare products deliver all anyone wants in order to treat scalp and hair naturally. Paul’s products are preferred by several pro-styling hair salons around the world. As he started as a hair stylist himself in Europe, over many years he created his product in his own salons to ensure bringing the finest results.
 
Now, for all who really want more suds during washing… just wash hair quickly for a 2ND time with only few drops of shampoo and… more suds will be there!
 
See here Katja’s story “My Secret for Beautiful Hair” about an easy 4-step natural hair care treatment program that was so successful for herself that she start advising it to many friends who experienced same wonderful results!
