Hair Schedule: Despite the name suggesting something complicated, it is nothing more than a hair care schedule that intersperses three treatments: hydration, nutrition and reconstruction, according to each person’s need.
The process takes place over a few weeks and seeks to meet all the needs of the hair fibre, resulting in reconstructed hair with balanced moisture and all the essential nutrients for the health and beauty of the hair.
The order and amount of each treatment will vary according to the type and intensity of the damage and the goals and needs each has. Therefore, we can say that the hair schedule is a personalized treatment plan.

Who Is The Hair Schedule For?
All hair types can benefit from the hair schedule, as long as, as we said at the beginning, your hair needs this treatment.
However, this care routine is more common for curly and frizzy hair, as these are more susceptible to dryness. The curvature of this type of wire makes the oil produced in the scalp more challenging to reach the length and ends, making it drier.
The schedule is also very suitable for those undergoing hair transition or chemical treatments, such as straightening and colouring, as these wires are usually drier and damaged.
The Steps: Hydration, Nutrition And Reconstruction
We already gave the spoiler at the beginning of the content, but the hair schedule is composed of three steps that must be interspersed depending on the need and hair damage.
Let’s know everything about each step of the hair schedule below.
Hair hydration is the best-known hair care and is very important for the health of the wires.
Its primary function is water replacement; that is, it returns the water lost by the thread daily due to exposure to external factors such as sunlight, wind, pollution, use of heat modellers and chemical procedures.
Hydration is perfect for fighting dryness and brings softness, smoothness, shine and natural movement to the hair.
Nutrition is responsible for making a lipid replacement in the wires, replacing the lipids lost daily by the cables, thanks to exposure to the same aggressors mentioned above.
But what are lipids? They are fats naturally produced by our scalp and form a “protective layer” on the hair. As a result, when nutrition will updat the hair is more aligne and the cuticles will seale, which minimizes damage and loss of water and nutrients through the wires; that is, they are hydrated, protected, more beautiful and healthier.
There are two ways to do the hair nutrition step: with a nourishing mask rich in vegetable oils or capillary wetting, applying natural vegetable oil directly to the strands. We have content that talks about hair wetting, including how to do the treatment step by step. Nourishing will make your hair frizz-free, without volume, split ends, or dryness.
Last but not least, it works to replace the mass, amino acids, and keratin, among other nutrients – and that’s why you need to choose products that contain these repairing actives.
The reconstruction step is especially suitable for hair damag chemical procedures, which becomes porous and brittle and needs hair fibre restoration.
It is the most powerful step of the whole process, as it treats the hair fibre from the inside out and, therefore, should not do it in excess; otherwise, it can leave the hair rough, with a hardened and split appearance.
Does My Hair Need A Hair Schedule?
Now that you already know the three stages of the hair schedule, the question arises. But how do I know if my hair needs this care schedule?
Let’s go: opaque wires, without movement and rough to the touch, are signs of dryness and need hydration. On the other hand, if the strands are ruffled, with a lot of frizz and tangling, too, it is a sign that they need a lipid replacement, that is, nutrition treatment. Finally, if you’ve had chemical procedures recently and feel that your hair is porous and breaks easily, you need to invest in reconstruction.
Sound complicated? Let’s make it easy with the hair porosity test!
It is a rapid and easy test that analyzes the health of the thread. Look at the step by step:
Fill a clear glass with filtered water;
Run your hand through your hair to catch any loose strands;
Place the thread inside the glass of water and wait 3 minutes.
After the 3 minutes of waiting, it’s time to evaluate the results:
