How to Keep Hair Healthy and Shining
Hair are one of essential part of women personality. A women with rough and dry hair is called uncaring and ugly women. So keep an eye on you hair regularly. Here are some great and useful tips, which can be used at home.
Hair tends to be weak when it's wet, so be careful while washing your hair. Vigorous rubbing, scrubbing and pulling can cause damage. Use a mild shampoo that does not contain harmful chemicals. Instead, it should contain natural ingredients with conditioning properties. While washing, keep your hair straight down and wash from the scalp to the tips. Rub your scalp and hair gently using your fingers. This helps to increase the blood supply to the scalp and roots. Use cool water for the last rinse. Lastly, condition your hair with a good conditioner. After you finish washing and conditioning, wrap a soft towel around your head for a few minutes to mop up excess water.
Never let the dirt and sweat build up in your hair as it makes your hair tangle easily. Be sure to wash your hair with good quality shampoo after outdoor activities, so that your hair looks nice and clean.
You should brush the hair to help improve the shine. Brushing your hair evenly distribute the oils from the scalp throughout the hair shaft. Use a soft bristle brush when washing your hair; do not brush your hair harshly. Make sure you brush your hair 2 to 3 times a day and always brush in downward motion. If you have long hair that tends to tangle on the ends, you should start brushing from the ends to remove any tangles and work up to the scalp.
To have healthy, shining and beautiful hair, you should never brush wet hair. Wet hair is much weaker than when it is dry. Wet hair will break easily if it is not combed gently.
Watch Your Diet
Nutrition plays a vital role in skin health too. Specific foods such as those acidic foods and dairy products are said to be effective in causing an allergic reaction in some people. Also, one of the widely debated topics in the area of nutrition today is chocolates. Some say that chocolate does affect the condition of the skin, while others say it doesn’t. Whatever the result may be, the best advice is just to follow a nutritious diet that has a number of fresh fruits and green-leafy veggies, as well as fiber.
Many experts say that exfoliating your skin is another great way to attain a beautiful skin. So, try to invest in a good body exfoliant or “loofah", as it is commonly called, as it is capable of eliminating the dead skin cells from your body. Accordingly, this should be done once or twice a week so to free the skin to breathe. What’s more, exfoliants help to put off ingrown hair from developing.
However, it is essential to avoid using any body exfoliant on the skin on the face. The main reason for this precaution is that the facial tissue is more sensitive and finer than those tissues of the body.
