Natural Hair Care Tips

Here are some hair care tips that you can use to improve the health and look of your hair.

While choosing your styling products, make sure that the main component is not alcohol. Presence of too much of alcohol tends to make your hair dry.
Avoid putting your hair styling products directly on your scalp. Doing so will clog the pores on your head.

Before entering a pool, wet your hair so your hair will soak up the initial water instead of the chlorinated water in the swimming pool. When swimming, remember to wear a cap to protect your hair from chlorinated water. In case you are not wearing a cap make sure that you shampoo and condition your hair properly after your swimming is over.

Hot air can be damaging to your hair. So avoid or minimize the use of hair dryers and hot curlers as much as possible. If you are at all using a hair dryer make sure you use the cool mode of the hair dryer.

Avoid using the blow dryer at one spot for more than a few seconds. Instead, keep it moving and most importantly you keep it at a good distance away from your hair.

To speed up the drying process, blot your hair dry with a towel instead of rubbing it to dry it. Leave the remaining moisture in your hair and let it dry naturally rather than drying it with a blow dryer.

If you notice a difficult knot in your hair, use your fingers to detangle it instead of combing it, which can result in breakage of hair.

Hair tends to be most fragile when it is wet. Avoid brushing or combing when it's wet, as doing so can cause breakage of hair. Wait until your hair is almost dry before you attempt brushing it.

Use wide toothed and smooth tipped brushes or combs. Sharp and smaller toothed combs can cause damage to your hair.

Keep your brushes and combs clean by washing them every week using soap or shampoo.

Make sure you comb your hair with wide toothed comb or use your fingers to remove any tangles before you start brushing it.

Begin by combing your hair gently at the ends to get any tangles out and work your way up to the root of your hair.

Remember to always brush or comb your hair with a down ward stroke.
Avoid using plastic brushes or combs, which create static electricity, thus resulting in causing damage to your hair.

A healthy lifestyle will mean healthier body and mind including healthy hair for you too. Diet and Hair loss are closely associated, and hence you must pay attention to your diet for a healthy hair. Excessive stress, smoking, not exercising and scarcity of nutrition are can prevent your hair from remaining healthy. Get the required amount of sleep.

Learn your hair type, whether it is dry or oily and purchase shampoos & conditioners that are best suited for your hair type. Trial and error and extensive research is the best way to find out which particular hair product is ideal for your hair.

Shower with warm or cool water. Hot water can dry and irritate your scalp, resulting in irritation at times even.
