How To Prevent Oily Hair

The first step to follow when trying to prevent oily hair is to cut back on the amount of times you wash your hair. Do you wash your hair every day? Reduce that to every other day, or even every two days. By washing your hair too often, you are stripping your hair of essential oils, which it then hurries up and tries to produce more as a result of losing oil. By not washing your hair as often, you will be slowing down the response of your body and its natural tendency to produce more oil. Another way to prevent oily hair is to avoid shampoo that is hydrating or moisturizing, as these products often leave the scalp and hair more oily. Read   read more

How To Rescue Dry Frizzy Hair

Dry frizzy hair is something that we have all had to deal with at one point in time, and during these hot and humid summer months, frizz is even more common. One of the best ways to treat dry frizzy hair is to apply a weekly hair masque, which will help give hair a boost by infusing the hair follicle with nutrients and moisture. Leave the masque on for a minimum of fifteen minutes, and apply heat to hair as well in order to open up the hair strand, which will allow it to better absorb nutrients. If possible, try to go easy on the heat styling during the summer months, as too much heat can cause dry frizzy hair. Instead, opt for more low maintenance hairstyles. Read   read more

If your hair is in good condition and is healthy, then your hair care regime will only need a few tweaks to keep your tresses looking great. One way to have healthy hair is to maintain a healthy lifestyle; your mane will be in better condition, naturally. Your daily diet should include plenty of water, as well as lots of fresh fruit and vegetables. Opt for grilled or baked dishes rather than fried food, and limit your intake of cola or coffee, which have excess caffeine.

Perming, bleaching, or coloring frequently cause damage to your hair as they strip the shaft of its natural oils. Experts say that hair should have at least eight percent moisture for it to look silky and shiny. Using products meant for chemically treated hair can protect your tresses and make them look smooth and glossy.
