Considering it is technically dead tissue, we spend an awful lot of time, money, and energy on hair care. And well we should. In addition to being fun to style and color, hair serves a valuable biological purpose: It keeps your head warm and helps regulate body temperature.
.The only thing that baffles girls more than boys is their hair. Do you have any ideas why does your hair look totally fabulous today but crappy the other day, even when you style it the same way? Or why is more hair coming out when you shampoo? Does it mean you are going bald? I bet most of you do not know what to do when hair gets static in the winter. Do not worry. Your hair Dilemmas can be solved!
Just as snowflakes, no hair days are identical. Tender switches in your styling routine plus the weather conditions can easily change the way your hair looks from day to day. It’s obvious that humidity causes frizz, but very dry air can also make puffy your hair. As long as your body heats up on a hot day, your scalp sweats slightly, and as a result, your hair looks flat. If the air is dry, your hair will be, too. Before you go to sleep, fill up a large bowl full of water and keep it out while you sleep—as the water evaporates, moisture is put into the air. Keep combination of rinsing out all of your shampoo and conditioner and using the same blow-drying technique and amount of products each day.
People normally lose between 50 and 100 strands a day. Changing your diet, starting or ending a medication or experiencing a lot of stress in the last two months can cause more to fall out, but that type of hair shedding is only for a while. If there is not any obvious reason of losing your strands, visit your doctor for excluding a thyroid problem. Regardless of the cause of the hair loss, start massaging your scalp every time you wash up. Making a slight massage increases the blood flow to your follicles and gives rise to healthy hair growth.
Getting enough of some vitamins, especially B vitamins such as folic acid and biotin, is essential for having healthy, strong hair. You should be able to get all of these nutrients from a balanced diet that includes such B-rich foods as eggs and dark leafy greens as well as salmon. But if you are not sure you are getting enough nutrients from the foods you eat, you should want to take a daily vitamin pill to be certain that your strands stay in normal shape.
Since your locks do not have a digestive system, it is impossible to feed them with nutrients from a bottle. What shampoos and conditioners are able to do is help stressed-out tresses look healthier by coating the cuticle and even filling in holes with such ingredients as silicone, fatty acids, and proteins. This will make each strand feel softer and look shinier. The best way to repair damaged, dry hair and prevent future breakage and not cutting it off is by using an intensive deep conditioner once per week. Look for those that contain acids or proteins to help strengthen weak strands and moisturizers for hydrating and soften.
Cutting your hair does not mean it will make hair grow, but frequent cutting ensures healthy locks. Damaged ends will continue to split up the hair stems, making your hair vulnerable to breakage and weak. Trims prevent the breakage, so even if you are aiming for longer hair, you need to cut off almost quarter of an inch every five weeks. Plus if you are thinking of cutting hair on your own, do not you dare because if your scissors are not sharp enough, you will end up making the split ends even and much worse. Breakage can also be caused by brushing your hair while it is wet or dry and repeatedly using extremely tight elastic on your ponytails. So brush from ends up to the roots and not the other way around. Wear your pony a little looser and lower than usual for taking your hair a break.
Over brushing can actually damage your hair by overstimulation of your scalp’s oil glands and wearing off the outer cuticle. But the right amount of brushing will increase shine, get rid scalp of flakes and product buildups. All you need are 15 to 25 strokes a day with the proper brush. The best brushes have a mix of natural and synthetic bristles, which gently wears off the oils down from your scalp.
