As many people know, hair is the crowning glory of a person and sad to say that some of us don't give their hair proper care and attention. We must take a good care of our hair since it is a said to be the mirror of out inner health and a reflection of our personality. As we consult the dictionary, it is said that the primary component of hair fiber is keratin and these are actually proteins. The hair itself has no blood supply and no nervous system. A good hair care routine is important and should be a daily ritual in everyone's life. I list down some useful and effective ways on how to take care your hair properly.
TIP NO.1 ? Live a healthy lifestyle A healthy lifestyle will mean healthier hair for you. Excessive stress, smoking, not exercising and not eating nutritiously are not healthy for your hair. Your hair needs nutrition from the inside and out. Hair-friendly foods are those packed with vitamins and protein so include plenty of leafy vegetables, fruit, fish and dairy products in your daily diet. Taking certain vitamins may be most helpful in improving the condition of your hair.
B group of vitamins among other kinds, are proven to cure many hair problems such as hair loss, dandruff, graying etc. TIP NO.2 ? Choose the right shampoo As much as possible, use natural and organic hair care shampoos and conditioners with wheat germ, jojoba, almond or coconut oil, keratin, vitamins such as biotin, panthenol, vitamin A, E and essential oils. Also consider the type of your hair. If you pick out a shampoo for oily hair when your hair is actually dry, it will only damage your hair. Understanding the kind of hair you have is important so you can nourish it better.
TIP NO.3 ? Hair products to avoid There are lots of hair products nowadays which contain harmful chemicals that can cause various hair problems. So we must know what exactly are these products. Avoid using hair styling products with alcohol which dries out hair and as much as possible try to avoid putting hair styling products directly on your scalp, if you put it on your scalp you'll clog the pores on your head.
If you like to go outside and get into the sun, protect your hair with hair care products that contain sunscreen. Also try to consult the experts to know which products is the best fit on your hair. TIP NO.4 ? Dry your hair properly I know most of you are using a blow dryer to dry your hair. Just be inform that hot air can directly damage your hair.
My tip for you is when using a hair dryer use the cool setting of it to lessen the damage done to your hair. Also, don't leave the blow dryer in one spot for more than a few seconds, keep it moving and at a good distance away from your hair. Overusing your hairdryer will contribute to damaging your hair so try to avoid using blowers as much as possible. Hair is very important factor in looking good. To look great, we must properly take care of our hair regularly.
We can achieve this by starting with a healthy lifestyle because as i said earlier, the hair is the reflection of our inner health and personality. Take care of your self and you take care of your hair. Enjoy!.
