Microbii din peria de par, si de ce este recomandat sa o cureti la timp/Hairbrush microbes and why is it recommended to clean it on time

Conform unui studiu recent, periile de par reprezinta un paradis pentru bacterii ce transporta aproximativ 3500 de colonii pe metru. De unde provine toata aceasta incarcatura bacteriana? Simplu. Un folicul de par poate contine 50.000 de germeni.

In conditiile in care periile de par nu sunt curatate corespunzator, acestea pot genera in timp iritari ale pielii scalpului, alergii si mirosuri neplacute.

Recomandarile specialistilor

Periile de par pot fi: de plastic, de ceramica, de vasla, de lemn.

Astfel:

  • Periile de par se pot curata de parul in exces cu un pieptene mai mic sau chiar cu mana. Specialistii recomanda intai, scoaterea parului in exces si apoi curatirea cu apa si sampon.
  • Periile de plastic si ceramica trebuie spalate bine lunar, cu apa calduta si sampon, dupa care se clatesc bine si se lasa la uscat – ATENTIE! Periile nu se lasa la uscat in lumina directa a soarelui! Razele UV pot degrada firele de par!
  • In cazul periilor de vasla trebuie sa avem mai multa grija, datorita faptului ca acestea ar putea retine apa dedesubt, ce ar putea iesi foarte greu, si in cazuri izolate, umiditatea poate conduce la mirosuri neplacute urmate de mucegai. Aceste perii trebuie spalate de doua-trei ori pe luna;
  • Periile de lemn nu necesita o curatare intensa, datorita materialului. Spalarea profunda poate duce la stricarea finisajului periei, din cauza detergentilor concentrati utilizati. Se recomanda spalarea rapida si sigura cu apa.

Periile de par se murdaresc si datorita produselor de styling folosite de zi cu zi. Pe langa resturile de produse de styling se pot aduna celule moarte si ulei.

Daca nu curatam periile de par, pe langa acumularea de germeni si microbi (ceea ce creste riscul de infectii), pur si simplu nu le putem utiliza corespunzator. O perie murdara va conferi parului proaspat spalat un aspect unsuros, murdar si naclait si mai mult decat atat transferam microbiota periei pe firele de par si scalp, ingreunandu-l.

Periile de par nu trebuie imprumutate altor persoane! Sunt oameni ce ar putea avea infectii fungice capilare de care nu au cunostinta!

Exemple de microorganisme capilare: tinea capitis (ringworm) si paduchii de cap ce pot afecta cu usurinta orice categorie de persoane, de la copii la adulti.

Specialistii recomanda schimbarea periei de par odata la doi ani. Periile de par pot fi pastrate totusi, mai mult de doi ani. Cel mai bun semn de a ne da seama de acest lucru o spun semnele de uzura, si nu calendarul.

English version

According to a recent study, hair brushes represent a paradise for bacteria that carry approximately 3500 colonies per meter. Where does all this bacterial load come from? Simple. A hair follicle can contain 50,000 germs.

As long as hair brushes are not properly cleaned, they can in time cause scalp skin irritation, unexpected allergies and smells.

                                                         Expert recommendations

So:

  • Hairbrushes can be cleaned with excess hair with a smaller comb or even a hand. Specialists recommend first, remove excess hair and then clean with water and shampoo.

– Plastic and ceramic brushes should be washed thoroughly, with warm water and shampoo, then clean thoroughly and leave to dry – WARNING! The brushes are not allowed to dry in direct sunlight! UV rays can degrade hair!

– In the case of varnish brushes, we need to take more care because they can hold water underneath, which could be very difficult, and in isolated cases, humidity can lead to unpleasant odors, followed by mold. These brushes must be washed two or three times a month;

– Wood brushes do not require intensive cleaning due to the material. Deep washing may result in the brush finish being spoiled due to the use of detergents. Quick and safe washing with water is recommended.

Hair brushes get dirty because of the styling products used daily. In addition to the remnants of styling products, dead cells and oil can collect.

If we do not clean the hair brushes, besides the accumulation of germs and microbes (which increases the risk of infection), we simply can not use it properly. A dirty brush will give the fresh washed hair a dull, dirty look and mor, we transfer the brush microbiota to hair and scalp, aggravating it.

You do not have to borrow our hairbrush other people! There are people who may have capillary fungal infections that they do not know about!

Examples of capillary microorganisms: tinea capitis (ringworm) and head lices that can easily affect any category of person, from children to adults.

Specialists recommend changing the hair brush every two years. Hairbrushes can still be stored for more than two years. The best sign of realizing this is the signs of wear, not the timing.
