Easy-To-Remember Snappy Tips

Hair care tips serve as reminders that help you in your daily care routine. After you have gone through our easy list, you’d say you wished you’d known these hair care tips before.
For stronger and healthier hair, eat nutritious foods like fish and nuts rich in omega-3 fatty acids and proteins. They make your scalp and follicles healthy. Leafy veggies, as well as beans and carrots, are also great for building up the strength of your strands. Avoid quick weight loss fads that can harm your hair.

When shampooing your hair, use lukewarm water, not hot. You can strip your hair of its natural protective oils when you use hot water, leading to the loss of its natural shine. It’s also important that you give your scalp a gentle massage while shampooing to encourage the oils to coat your hair.

You can remedy split ends by using protein products. Split ends can be due to overstyling – frequent use of hot tools, perm, color, and bleach that can strip your strands of their outer layer. Condition with protein products regularly to repair split ends.

Is your hair thin and lifeless? Then give it a boost with silicone. Choose products with dimethicone or cyclomethicone which coats your hair with a thin film without looking oily or greasy. They remain on hair after rinsing. Don’t use thick or rich conditioners because they will only make hair look limp and without bounce.

Are you plagued with dandruff? You might have a minor skin disorder of the scalp. Get yourself a shampoo with medication against dandruff. Soak it into your scalp for at least 5 minutes and rinse well after. Do not rub oil into your scalp thinking that your dandruff is caused by dryness. It can become worse if you do.

If you think you are experiencing too much hair loss, like more than 100 to 200 strands a day, avoid too much brushing. Brushing at 100 strokes a day can snap off more strands. You may be interfering with the up-tick and resting phases of hair growth. Also, use a ball-tipped bristle hair brush which is gentler on hair. And do not brush wet-hair.

If you are still losing hair, look at the way you wound and bound your tresses. You might be wearing your ponytails and braids too tightly, sporting them the entire day, or even sleeping with these styles. These practices can break off strands and pull out roots. Give your hair a rest by setting it free before bed.
