The secret to great hair with Alfaparf Milano

Can you name a time that your hair didn't look or feel its best? You probably had to spend hours taking care of it. We all have days like this, but the good news is there are products out there for those days when we need them most. Today I want to talk about some prescription-strength hair care treatments from Alfaparf Milano that can help make your hair look and feel healthy again in no time!

The professional range focuses on addressing concerns and needs of the scalp, hair, and overall look and the interaction between these differing elements to perfectly tailor for differing hair outcomes. So, whether you have thick dry hair that needs moisture, or damaged ends because you bleach it too much, or your hair simply lacks shine the intermixable ranges will address all your hair woes.


Ever heard of the ‘COMBABILITY TEST’? No? Well, Alfaparf Milano recommend doing this test to determine your hairs specific needs. Is your hair normal, dry or damaged? If you’re not sure, try the following:


Next time you’re in the shower, take a 1cm to 2cm squared, strand of shampooed hair (un-conditioned), and brush through using a fine-tooth comb.  

If the comb reaches the bottom of the hair in the first three combing strokes, then you have “NORMAL HAIR.”

If the comb does not reach the bottom of the hair in the first three combing strokes, and gets tangled, and further combing is required, then your hair is ‘’DRY OR DAMAGED’’ meaning we have one more step to define the hair’s condition – ‘’The Resistance Test’’

The Resistance Test is used to define if your hair is just lacking moisture, or if it is actually damaged. Simply separate 3 to 5 hairs and gently pull on the ends of your damp hair with your fingers. The hair should naturally stretch up to 10%, indicating that the hair still has elasticity and is only lacking moisture. However, if hair does not stretch more than 10% and breaks, then it is ‘’DAMAGED HAIR’’.

Now you’ve determined your hair condition, you can apply that to the below Alfaparf Semi di Lino lines and have the perfect product for your hair!

  • Moisture Nutritive: Dry Hair- contains honey Nutri-Sugars to re-moisturise the hair’s hydrolipid layer.

  • Reconstruction Reparative: Damaged Hair - combination of Bamboo Marrow and Cortex Repair to help strengthen brittle hair that experiences breakage.

If your needs are more complex, for example you have scalp irritation that you need to address, Alfaparf Semi di Lino Scalp can help reduce itching, redness, dandruff and oily skin and restore wellbeing and radiance to the hair. The range features the Microbiotic System, a mix of probiotics and prebiotics, which makes it the right treatment to keep the skin’s bacterial flora in balance.

Example: Jeanette has been experiencing an itchy and flaky scalp. She has balayage through her lengths and ends and found that after conducting a Combability Test, that her hair was breaking at the ends. She uses straightening irons regularly and likes a smooth and sleek look each day.

Jeanette’s Hair Beauty Routine

 Scalp problem:

We recommend Jeanette to start with the SDL Scalp Exfoliating Scrub to help eliminate scaling faster, followed by the SDL Scalp Purifying Shampoo as her main cleanser.

 Damaged Hair:

To help recover and repair lengths and ends we recommend SDL Reconstruction Mask & SDL Reconstruction Anti Breakage Fluid for the treatment.

 For Jeanette’s Desired Look for smooth and sleek hair we recommend

SDL Smoothing Oil to eliminate frizz and protect her hair up to 230 degrees Celsius from hot styling tools.

Importantly, whatever your condition, ALFAPARF Milano has you covered. With ranges specifically formulated for every hair type, it will guarantee getting your hair goals back on track! What’s even more satisfying is that Semi di Lino is free from Sulfate, Parabens, Paraffins and Mineral Oils.
