Does moisturizing with sour cream work?
Hydration with milk cream adapts well to the most dry, chemically treated and frizzy hair because it contains a considerable amount of lipids, which are fat molecules. According to Andreia, hydration is not a substitute for professional treatment, but it is a good alternative to care for hair at home in an accessible way.
The hairdresser explains that the cream has a component called lactic acid. It helps to regulate the pH of the hair and reduce frizz as it fills the open spaces in the cuticles of the strands. Therefore, when complementing hydration, it is important to choose a mask with a lower pH, as it will be responsible for balancing the mixture and closing the cuticles of the wires.
