Hair Care Tips

I recently found some very good and simple tips for the care of our hair and I would like to share them with you.

Most of them are very easy to follow.

Here they are:

>A healthy lifestyle will mean healthier hair for you. Excessive stress, smoking, not exercising and not eating nutritiously are not healthy for your hair.
>Get enough sleep.

>Avoid using hair styling products with alcohol which dries out hair.

>Avoid puting hair styling products directly on your scalp, if you put it on your scalp you'll clog the pores on your head.

>Before entering a pool, wet your hair so your hair will soak up the initial water instead of the
chlorinated water.
>When swimming where a cap to protect your hair from chlorinated water, if you choose not to wear a cap make sure you shampoo and condition your hair right after you are done swimming.

>Hot air can be damaging to your hair so when using a hair dryer use the cool setting.

>Brush your hair regularly before going to bed each night.
>Wash your hair with a mild shampoo. Use very little but enough to cover hair completely with lather. Use a conditioner to keep hair manageable.
>Avoid brushing wet hair. This will cause the hair to stretch and finally break. Finger-dry, or use a wide-toothed comb instead of a brush to gently remove the knots.

>Stimulate circulation by massaging your head with oil to which some vitamin E has been added. This will make hair soft and silky.

>Try not sleeping with your hair in a ponytail or done in a braid. This will stress the hair immensely and will eventually lead to damage.

I hope you´ll find these tips useful.
Thanks for reading!

Very good tips. I have really curly hair so I use a mild shampoo and if I leave it curly I have to use some kind of product to tame it down.

I always use a warm blow dryer...maybe I should try it on cool! I guess that hot straight iron is so good either! HA

Thanks again
