Secrets to Beautiful Hair
by: Alex Fir
Always wash your hair with lower temperature water. A lot of people damage their hair with very hot water. Wash your hair every other day or even every third day.
Use the shampoo designed for your type of hair. Do not put the shampoo in the middle of your hand and push it into the middle of your scalp. Rub it on your hands to evenly distribute. If you have acne, remember that shampoo can cause more acne. Rinse your face, neck and back thoroughly after using shampoo.
Use hair conditioner which is formulated for your hair type. Conditioning your hair is one of the most important steps to keep your hair healthy and beautiful. Get a good brand that you let soak into your hair for a few minutes before rinsing thoroughly.
Pat your hair dry. Put the towel on your head into a turban but, when you take it off, pat the hair in between the towel instead of rubbing your head with it. If you must use blow dryer, set it on low or medium heat.
Never brush your hair when it is wet. Brushes break your hair. Use a comb and pick up sections of your hair to comb easily and carefully. Be careful not to over-brush, because it can make your hair greasy and damage the hair and scalp.
Get regular trims. Most people want longer hair and believe that trimming will slow down the length growth. This is just not true. Without a trim, you get split ends. Split ends break and tear leaving ugly ends and actually will not let your hair grow as long as if you do get it trimmed.
If you color your hair stay within two shades of your natural color. Color should compliment your skin tone and eye color. Think about your current style. Make sure you have your hair in the best possible condition before coloring.
Eating a healthy, balanced diet is necessary for the health and beauty of your hair! Great nutrition is the most effective way of getting awesome hair.
