The Golden Rules of Hair Care
Do you always wonder if people really have hair as beautiful as they show in shampoo advertisements?
Well, the answer is yes!
People with such long and beautiful hair do exist in reality as well!
While it may seem that having healthy and beautiful hair requires a lot of time and effort, there are some simple tips and tricks that can make your hair healthy and shiny.
Here are some simple yet highly effective hair care rules and tips:
· Stop Shampooing Your Hair Every day
Shampooing your hair every day does more harm than good. According to research, over-washing is one of the most common habits that damage hair. Shampoos are packed with harsh chemicals and using them every day can strip the natural oils from your scalp. Natural oils condition and protect your hair. In their absence, your hair becomes dry, brittle and prone to breakage.
If you have been doing this mistake, it’s time to change the habit – do not shampoo your hair more than three times a week.
· Condition the Right Way
Another common mistake that leads to hair damage is applying conditioner to your scalp. Conditioner should not be applied to scalp and roots, but only on the ends.
Hair experts also suggest removing excess water from your hair, with the help of a towel, before applying conditioner. This is recommended because excess water acts as a barrier between your hair shafts and conditioner, stopping it from penetrating deep into the hair and do its magic.
· Avoid Heat as Much as Possible
Heat is bad for your hair. Whether it is hot water, hair dryer, straightener, or any other styling equipment that applies heat to your hair is bad. Heat strips off the natural moisture from your hair and damages them, which then leads to tangles and breakage.
· Say Yes to Oiling
Oiling is a very old practice in some Asian cultures and there are good enough reasons that the rest of the world adopts it as well.
Applying oils, like coconut, olive, and mustard, to both your scalp and shafts helps to improve hair growth and give a natural shine by regulating natural oil production.
· Be Gentle with Wet Hair
While you need to be always gentle with your hair, this becomes all the more important when your hair is wet. Wet hair is much more fragile and delicate than dry hair. This is why experts advise against rubbing your hair with a towel. Only use a towel to blot your hair gently and then air dry it.
Not brushing wet hair is another hair care rule that we all know. If you can’t wait till your hair gets dry for any reason, use a wide-tooth comb and start from the tips.
· Get Your Hair Trimmed Regularly
Split ends not only make your hair look bad, but they also cause severe damage. This is why experts suggest getting a haircut frequently.
