Hair Essentials

Don't you just envy the girls in the shampoo commercials on the tele. Long silky hair so fine, lustrous and shiny. Well I came across tips for beautiful hair from and I want to share it with you. Here it is below :

SPLIT ENDS, which are mainly caused when your hairs cell fail to hold together, are a result of exposure to harsh elements, chemicals or even excessive brushing. The right kind of shampoo will minimise hair damage.

Meanwhile, it is also important to replenish ceramides, which are hairs natural cement, and is responsible for holding the hair cells together. A ceramides enriched shampoo will help repair hair fiber and reduce split ends.

To maintain oily hair
Oily hair always goes with any oily skin. The scalp has a tendency to secrete excess oil, which makes it lank and greasy. It is therefore important to keep the scalp dry. Do not succumb to the temptations of a harsh shampoo, which temporarily restores your hair but harms it in the long run. Using a special shampoo for oily hair is the best, which is gentle enough to be used often. It also essential to rinse the shampoo thoroughly finishing with cold water.

For thin and limp hair
Secondly, do not comb your hair when wet, let it dry naturally and finger comb it. A hair dryer can boost your hair for a while but on a regular basis can prove harmful for your hair. Then, brush your brush straight from your scalp and shake it free.

For dry brittle hair
First check your shampoo! If you are using a harsh, unsuitable shampoo, it will not only dry your hair, it will cause breakage and dry scalp may turn flaky and cause a lot of other problems.

Use an especially mild shampoo made for dry hair. One fortified with essential oils to replace the last nourishment is ideal. A good conditioner also helps soften dry hair. After wash keep your damp hair in a turbaned towel for about 15 minutes. Finger comb it in a gentle massage like movements, this will activate the oil glands in your scalp. Then brush it gently. Oil massages followed by a steamy, hot towel on your head every 15 days will also help get rid of dryness

Thin, limp, hair does have a tendency to fall flat and dead. What you need is a volume booster. For starters choose your shampoo carefully. Ordinary shampoos do not do much for your kind of hair. Look up a shampoo especially for limp hair.

Well I hope you enjoyed that article till we meet again on the next issue of Look Great and Feel Happy. Have a wonderful hair day.
