Your hair is your crowning glory. Look after it and it will shine for all the world to see. You don’t always need expensive treatments, or visits to a hair salon to manage your hair professionally. There’s so much you can do yourself. In this article, we will share with you 5 secrets to keep your hair in tip-top condition!
For shiny, healthy hair think first of your body’s intake. Your hair is just a reflection of what you are inside. A good balanced, nutritious, and healthy diet will do more to make your hair shine than any shampoo or conditioner. Make sure to also drink eight to ten glasses of water per day; your hair is 25% water, so don’t let it go thirsty!
Dry your hair after washing it at ambient room temperature after using an absorbent towel to soak up the excess moisture, but don’t rub hard. If possible, avoid blow-drying, flat irons, and hot rollers at all costs.
Prevent unnecessary hair damage by using the right kind of hairbrush or comb. Only comb wet hair with a wide-tooth comb, combing from root to end, but avoid touching the roots. Detangling wet hair with a hard, steel comb can create a lot of damage. We suggest using wooden combs instead.
Remove trichomoniasis, or split ends, like so: take small sections of your hair and carefully twist them in a gentle downward motion. The split ends will stick out. Using salon-sharp scissors, carefully cut into the twisted section, but not right through, to remove the damaged cuticles and leave a natural, layered look. Cut roughly the same amount from each twist to balance the effect.
Hair loss can be slowed, or even reversed by using a few home remedies. Note: they probably won’t cure an underlying condition. Biotin can help to regenerate hair follicles: blend bananas, with honey and yogurt with low-fat milk and drink it daily. Supplements such as Vitamin B6, and zinc will help too. Eliminating stress and getting plenty of sleep will help as well.
We are all obsessed with our hair, whether we are 9 or 90, male or female. Look at yourself first and foremost and your hair will reflect that care and attention. Remember, your hair is the crown you never take off!
