HAIR CARE

March 16, 2010

Your hair is your crowning glory. It is probably the most important thing to take care of after your inner health. But before you get down to hair care, it is important for you to determine what type of hair you have, and then to look after it accordingly. Hair can either be oily, normal, dry or ‘Afro’ (black) hair.

Oily hair requires washing with a good oil-free shampoo after every second day. Excessive brushing oily hair stimulates the already over-active oil glands, so you need to go easy on the brushing. Having normal hair is a blessing and if you have it, look after it. Carry out a normal hair care regime (you can easily take help through hair care routine videos), take a multivitamin daily, avoid harsh hair care products and exposure to the sun. Heated styling appliances and lack of care can lead to dry hair. Dry hair is characterized by an oily scalp and dry ends, mainly caused by over-active sebaceous glands, which produce the natural lubricating oils for the hair. Dry hair requires extra care, including proper brushing and oiling. The bristles of the brush should be pressed in the scalp gently and then carried out up to the hair ends. Dry hair also needs proper nourishment, so apply any nutrient filled oil every week. Use shampoos and tonics with a good nutrient-based value, preferably with a lanolin or Vaseline base is an excellent choice. Egg shampoos have proven to prevent hair from drying as well.

Pointers and tips can be taken from hair product videos as well. Conditioning must be carried out if you wash your hair frequently. Make sure your conditioner carries an intensive conditioning treatment to moisture damaged hair. Alternate brushes by using a wide-toothed comb for wet hair, and a paddle brush while using a hair dryer, as shown on hair repair videos. Black hair care videos show that such hair is best treated with regular massages to increase the production of the hair’s natural lubricating oils.
