Managing your Hair

Caring for hair is pretty much the same as caring for your skin. A successful hair care discipline includes cleansing, toning and conditioning routines done with sacred regularity. The routine aims at getting rid of the excess oil and to exfoliate skin cells that block and smother hair follicles in your scalp. Emphasis, however, is laid on cleansing and toning routines.

Since your hair needs to be washed as often as it gets dirty and oily, a natural shampoo on a formulation of herbs is very effective. It is important to massage hair and scalp. This is both for the well being of your hair as well as good hair growth. For dry hair we strongly recommend scalp massaging with oil, while for oily hair massaging with toning lotion is suitable.

Using a soft brush, brushing is less harmful than combing. However, a firm brush can cause more damage to your hair than a comb would. Likewise, prolonged brushing also harms your hair a lot. Back combing also spoils your hair. Besides, causing knotting that is tough to untangle, it ruffles the scales of the cuticles. In the same way, never comb or brush wet hair. This only causes further damage to the hair. A good comb ought, necessarily, to have rounded and not sharp teeth. Nylon brushes with spiky ends can also damage your hair.

Then again, do you ever feel like covering your hair with a big frumpy hat? In that case, here are a few steps that are sure to make your hair shine and glisten. All, without the weigh down and a tip for in between coloring.

  • In between coloring, hairsprays your roots, then apply light eye-shadow to it; it works.

  • Don't make the mistake of washing your hair daily. If you do, stop; it will pay off.

  • While washing, shampoo twice in a row, then condition your hair. You will notice it get fuller and bouncier than before.

  • Brush your hair from the bottom tips moving upward towards the roots. Brush in downward strokes, as this will remove split ends leaving your hair healthier.
