Healthy Hair Tips

Maintaining and achieving healthy hair is often a priority on most people's list today, and should be such. The healthy tips we discuss here can help maintaining healthy hair become an easy task, and quickly diminish any thought of healthy hair being impossible these days.

Achieving healthy hair can be done with five simple steps, starting in the shower when washing your hair, ending at the finished style. These steps can when used in a routine improve your hairs look, feeling, and well being.

Step One, Shampooing with thought. When you are shampooing, you don't have to leave the shampoo in your hair like you do with conditioner, you simply have to get your hair wet, smooth the shampoo from root to tip, and lather into your scalp with your fingertips. Rinse and follow with conditioner. Try limiting yourself to shampooing once every other day at most.

Step Two, Conditioning is key. Never skip the conditioning treatment for your hair, since shampoo can strip your hair of all of the minerals and oils your body naturally produces to keep your hair safe; conditioner was designed to reduce some of the effects of shampooing that can be damaging to your hair. Spread your conditioner from root to tips and leave in for approximately one minute, every once and a while it can be helpful to leave it in a bit longer so that you can deep condition.

Step Three, How to towel dry. Towel drying isn't as simple as just rubbing a towel through your hair and being done. It is bad for your hair and can cause tangling that leads to breaking when you do it the wrong way. It is important to pat and squeeze your hair dry with the towel, rather than rub or shake. That way you can prevent breakage.

Step Four, Combing for success. When it comes to combing your hair most people use a bristle brush and just brush through their hair, but the best way to do it is to use a wide toothed comb and start at the bottom slowly working out knots. This greatly reduces breakage.

Step Five, Product to save you. When you use things like blow dryers, flat irons, and even curling irons you are burning your hair. So like the skin in the sun, hair needs to be protected. Most hair care brands offer a protective spray or serum that can keep the heat from burning the hair. It is important to apply these products before using heat to style your hair. After this is applied, style your hair the way you please and enjoy your smooth and silky hair.
