The Secrets of Healthy Hair
A Balanced Diet: Follow a healthy diet that is rich in vitamins, minerals and protein. Drink at least 2 litres of water per day to maintain soft, healthy locks.
A Great Hairstyle: A good hairstyle will not only enhance your facial features, it will also make you appear younger, more vivacious and attractive. Consult your hairdresser for advice on suitable styles and colours. As for maintenance, I suggest that you trim your hair every 6-8 weeks so as to avoid split ends.
Choose Suitable Products: As obvious as it sounds, choose cleansing, conditioning & styling products that are specifically designed for your hair-type i.e. frizzy, curly, fine, dry, damaged, dandruff, coloured etc. It really does make a difference.
Shampoo twice: For squeaky-clean hair, shampoo it twice, using only a coin-size of shampoo each time. Rinse your hair in cool water for an extra shiny look!
Always condition: Apply a suitable conditioner to your hair after shampooing and leave it to penetrate for at least one minute before rinsing. Don’t apply conditioner to the roots as this will make your hair look greasy (use your ears as a guide of where to start applying). If your hair errs on the dry side, treat it to a weekly conditioning treatment.
Dry, don’t fry: Avoid drying your hair with a dryer until it is 2/3 dry. Not only will it be easier to style your hair, it will also help to prevent your hair from drying out. If possible, try to let your hair dry naturally at least once a week. If you like to straighten your hair, be sure to use a heat protecting product on your hair, before you touch it with hot irons. Don’t straighten your hair every day as it will shortly lead to a frazzled, unmanageable hair.
