Rules of Hair Care
Rule 1: Choose your hair-specific products
Once you are sure about what your hair-type is…dry, normal, frizzy, colored, oily or whatever in between, your first step should be to buy your hair-specific shampoo and conditioner, dedicated to treat your hair condition. And not just shampoos and conditioners, even hair styling and hair treatment products today, come separately targeted at individual hair needs.
Dry Hair: What you need is extra moisture to prevent your hair from drying out early. A rich moisturizing shampoo or conditioner keeps your hair hydrated even during harsh winds.
Quick Tip: Don’t pull your hair too hard or treat them brashly unless you want your brittle dry hair to break away. Use fingertips instead of fingernails to massage your hair when washing as it stimulates oil glands.
Oily Hair: Oily hair should use hair products which are citrus-based. Citrus keeps your hair dry and fresh for a longer time. Also, using a clarifying shampoo once a week will help you clean your scalp build-up that prevents healthy growth.
Quick Tip: Washing your hair every day will activate your oil glands and they produce more oil if washed very frequently. Rather use the inexpensive cornstarch powder that keeps you oil-free in between the washes.
Normal Hair: You should go for either a fortifying or moisturizing shampoo which is mild and doesn’t rip your hair of its natural oils.
Quick tip: Don’t overuse products as that hampers the normal growth.
Colored Hair: Ensure that you wash your hair with only color-shield shampoo and conditioner.
Quick tip: Avoid extreme color changes, such as from sheer blonde to deep mahogany as you rick more damage to your hair.
Curly hair: For curly hair, yet again, a moisturizing shampoo works the best while never miss out on a rich hair conditioner.
Quick tip: People with curly hair should keep brushes away as much as possible.
Rule 2: Hair styling products are not bad if used at the right temperature and lesser frequency.
Rule 3: Stress, smoking, sleeping disorder and poor diet make your hair dull and prone to breakage. Let’s assume that this time you know what to do.
