It goes without saying, there are many other necessary activities that you must perform in order to truly care for your hair. For instance; as was already mentioned, the way you brush your hair really matters. In the case of dandruff, the hair should be brushed regularly to loosen flakes and stimulate blood supply to the scalp. This will accelerate the natural immune response to infection. However, if you don’t brush your hair the proper way, you may be eliminating dandruff, yet harming your actual hair!
Improper brushing is not the only way we damage our hair on a daily basis. As we discuss some basic steps that all of us take when grooming and maintaining our hair, see if you typically perform them the way they are discussed. Like most people, you are probably doing things everyday (or not doing things), that contribute to unhealthy hair. Even if you are doing one or two things right, for a healthy hair regiment to be effective, you should be doing everything that the routine calls for! Yep, that includes proper nutrition. To have healthy hair, proper nutrition is required. Your general health has a direct relation with the quality and quantity of hair. Notice the following helpful tips and advice involved with the proper daily care of your hair:
Healthy Hair Regiment
Eat well: Your hair is nourished by what you eat and drink, and will never look good if you don’t eat a balanced diet with lots of vitamins and minerals. Hair is mostly made of protein, so make sure your diet includes plenty. Drink water too, as this will flush impurities out of your body and keep you healthy.
Shampoo properly : By this, I mean that you should invest in a top quality salon shampoo that matches your hair type, if you have colored hair, make sure that the formulation of your shampoo is suitable, likewise if your hair is thin, greasy, blonde, or brunette, talk to your stylist, and get them to advise you on what they think is best. Too many people simply pick something off the supermarket shelf and home for the best, when what they really need is a shampoo that suits them
Condition deeply: Hair conditioners have a formulation that will add body and shine to your hair. You know how uncomfortable and scratchy clothes are if you don’t use a fabric conditioner, well hair is the same. Also, a good conditioner will help to keep your hair static free, which will reduce fizziness even more. Massage the conditioner from root to tip and leave it to work its magic and make your hair look really healthy and shiny before rinsing it thoroughly.
Dry your hair well: Modern hair dryers will not harm your hair as much as they used to, but if you are going to use a blow dryer to get your hair dry quickly, make sure you keep it moving over your hair and dry it evenly to avoid overheating. If you have the time, use the dryer on a cool setting to avoid damage.
Use a good Serum: There are a huge variety of great products around that are designed to smooth your hair. Most salons will be able to point you in the direction of a serum such as Frizz-ease that will help to keep your hair looking great. Generally hair serums work in three ways, by relaxing the hair, smoothing it, and reducing the potential for it to attract the static electricity that will cause it to frizz up.
Use good quality hair straighteners: Most people find that the cheaper hair straighteners do not do a very good job. You might find that they do not get hot enough to iron out the kinks properly on a single pass, and are not slippery enough to allow your hair to pass through smoothly. Opt for ceramic or glass heating plates, and make sure that there is an adjustable temperature. GHD straighteners are the one of the most popular brands around and are commonly used in salons all around the world. Their plates get hot fast, and are extra smooth to make styling your hair easy, all of which makes them a real favorite in salons around the world. Ceramic plates will help discharge the static electricity from your hair too, and leave it looking straight for longer.
NOTE: It is important to keep in mind that with different hair types and textures, some activities are more relevant to some cultures than others. For instance, the information about “frizzy” hair is more commonly relevant to non-African American hair types. On the other hand, details about hair straighteners may prove to be more relevant to the African American consumer.
