05 Beauty Tips to Keep Your Hair Healthy – Flaunt Those Locks

Beautiful and healthy hair immediately boosts your look. It is the health of your hair that shines through enhancing your overall image; here are few tips to keep those locks looking great.

1

Protect your Hair

Protect your Hair

Ensure you protect your hair from heat, rain and pollution. Overly exposing your hair to the sun tends to dry out and damage the hair follicles; the same effect is created when hair is exposed to pollutants, dust and heat. The scalp tends to dry out, damaging hair and increasing your risk of scalp infections. The best solution would be to cover your head with a cap, stylish hat or umbrella. Remember to regularly moisturize your hair. Hot oil massages work wonders. Although if you don't have time a quick slick of hair oil such as the excellent coconut based oils available at all leading supermarkets will do the trick. Simply smooth oil onto your hair before brushing. You do not have to drench your hair in the oil for that greasy look, simply rub enough to moisturize and detangle hair. Best of all it's a product that can be added to your shopping list when buying grocery products.

Treat Wet Hair with Care

Treat Wet Hair with Care

When hair is wet its weaker and easily damaged. Treat wet hair with care, use a large toothed comb to smooth out tangles; never brush wet hair and always gently blot hair dry after a bath. Avoid using harsh shampoos or over shampooing; choose a good moisture rich shampoo, a variety of which is available at all supermarkets including Keells Super. Remember to invest in a good conditioner too and use it regularly after each shampoo. A good conditioner is a marvelous solution for frizzy hair.

Use Conditioner Correctly

Use Conditioner Correctly

Conditioners are made for the hair shaft and not the scalp. Hence avoid rubbing the conditioner into the scalp as this will make your scalp greasy. Also use a conditioner in line with the same type or brand of shampoo you are using. Moisture rich shampoo requires a moisture rich conditioner. Start rubbing conditioner about 2 inches from the root of the hair in order to avoid getting it on the scalp. Massage the conditioner well into the hair shafts and leave it on for at least 3 minutes.

Don't Apply too Much Heat to Wet Hair

Don't Apply too Much Heat to Wet Hair

Remember the rule that wet hair is easily damaged and just as brushing tends to break wet hair; over application of heat too can damage and dry the hair. The overuse of hair dryers, heated curlers and straightening irons can take away moisture from the hair, cause the hair to dry out and become brittle. This makes hair break easily while giving it a frizzy look.
