Hair Care Tips
Hair Care Tips As a teenager you were probably never satisfied with your hair, always spending hours fixing it
and changing it.
As an adult you have come to accept your hair and perhaps even appreciate it.
It doesn't matter really if you accept or don't accept your hair, it still needs care as does your scalp.
Some have different types of hair, and scalp: oily, normal or dry. Some may need to shampoo daily, others every
other day, others even once a week. You'll need to think about the water that you use to wash your hair: not too
hot, not too cold, and usually using a mild shampoo is the best.
Shampooing and Conditioning: Buy shampoos & conditioners that match your hair type, trial
and error is the best way to find out what specific hair product is best for your hair.Shower with warm water, hot
water can dry and/or irritate the scalp.
Trimming: Have hair trimmed on a regular basis (approximately every two months). This is
especially important for growing out layers and/or bangs to reshape and make each stage of growing hair out a
Sleeping: Even the way you sleep can affect your hair. Restless sleepers may actually be
breaking hair as they sleep. If you're a restless sleeper, try a satin pillowcase so that the hair glides when you
move in your sleep. On regular cotton cases hair can get caught and break. Putting hair up to sleep is also
helpful. Hair should be put in a ponytail on top of the head. Always use rubberbands that are rapped in cloth,
commonly known as "scrunchies."Get enough sleep.
Styling: Your hair style is a reflection of your personality and a wonderful way to express
your individuality. All too often conventional styling products contain alcohol or other harsh chemicals.
These ingredients are used to keep the hair in place and to give the appearance of shiny healthy hair. In the
case of these mass-marketed products the look achieved is only surface deep and they tend to damage the hair.
The Long Hair Care Group has developed a highly specialized line of styling products which not only makes your
hair look great, they impart essential botanicals and vitamins to each strand, conditioning your hair as they hold
it in place and body and give it incredible shine.
Curling: Use regular hair rollers, winding hair loosely around them. Avoid electric rollers,
hot combs, and curling irons, or use these on a cool setting. Pin curls or barrel curls are the safest and fastest
methods of drying hair.
To contribute a great piece of hair care advice to the readers: one beaten whole egg in one
bowl, and two tablespoons of mayonnaise in another bowl. (Don't do this in the shower-it'll make you smell like a
salad unless you want to wash after. That's why you do it in a sink!).
Hanging your head in the sink, wet your hair and gently massage the whole beaten egg through your hair, taking
extra care with your scalp. This treatment is meant to get the oils, built up conditioners, and dirt from the past
week off your scalp and purify it.
Let the egg sit for about a minute, then rise throughly with warm water. Massage in the mayonnaise in the same
way, but paying attention to the tips of the hair, and let sit for about 2-3 minutes. (For a deep conditioning-wrap
your head in a towel and sit in the sun for 30 minutes)
