Everyone wants healthy, strong and beautiful hair. Below are some tips to encourage and promote healthy hair.
Be careful not to over wash the hair. Most shampoos on the market will strip the hair of its natural oils. Try to use a moisturizing cleanser. Cleansers usually do not lather as much. Lather is normally produced by chemicals called Lauryl and its many companions.
Consider decreasing the amount of times you wash your hair. Instead try a co-wash. This is fairly a new term or idea. Instead of washing the hair with a cleanser you simply rinse the hair and use a conditioner. Rinse out and style as usual. This does clean the hair but it also gives it a lot of moisture and most importantly the hair looks and feels soft and luxurious.
Rinse shampoo and conditioner with cool to cold water. This tightens the pores and the hair cuticle. It also enhances shine.
Get a trim every 6-8 weeks. This depends on how fast your hair grows, if it is permed or in a natural state and even texture. Please have this done professionally. This is to cut down on broken and damaged ends. Broken and damaged ends make the hair frizzy, unruly, and difficult to manage.
Minimize the heat. If you can help it try to limit how many times a day or even a week you hot comb, press, curl, flat iron, or even blow dry the hair.
Most importantly, develop a healthy hair routine. I recommend you pick hair care products you feel work well with your hair and consistently use them.
Now as a bonus. We want to give you one last tip for healthy hair. To tame frizzy hair comb a little aloe vera gel on the ends.
