Love Thy Mane

Last week we informed you about effective skin care, and what regime to follow in order to restore and protect your skin. Today we bring to you few tips for all hair types and remedies for hair care. We all have all sorts of questions while thinking about hair care. To condition or not to condition, to oil or not to oil – when it comes to your hair you’ll find all kinds of advice. Mothers will tell you to “oil your hair” while your hair dresser will recommend the new IT things “hair spa, Moroccan oil, strengthening not rebonding and all.”

Cleansing your hair is an essential step. How often should you wash your hair? It’s the perennial question of the hair industry and but experts seem to agree that cutting back is a good thing – and washing every day is a mistake, no matter how much you might crave clean-feeling locks. Unlike the labels on the back of our food items, the labels on the back of our shampoos are mostly left unread. In the last few years, there has been a lot of focus on sulfate in shampoos. What are sulfates? They’re the reason your shampoo lathers the way it does. They clean your scalp and hair, departing the dirt from it. But some researchers also suggest that they strip your hair of essential oils. They’re also why your eye stings when shampoo runs down the side of your face. We recommend that you use sulfate free shampoo which are made of natural ingredients.

Conditioning your hair after cleansing it is a must. What conditioner you use and how you use it is, if anything, more important than the shampoo stage. Make sure you invest in a few good quality conditioners and leave-in treatments or hair masks, especially if you have coloured hair.

Even though you condition your hair after every wash, nothing quite works as good as deep conditioning. Every once in a while wash your hair with shampoo, squeeze out the extra water and towel dry it. Then take generous amounts of conditioner and apply it right to the root of your hair. Use a broad toothed comb and run it through your hair to make sure the conditioner reaches everywhere. Now, pull them up and clip them together. Leave the conditioner in for anywhere between 10 minutes to an hour. Pull them down, rinse thoroughly and enjoy silky smooth hair.

Every hair stylist has a secret arsenal of favourite products to give your hair that extra dose of va-va-voom. A conditioner might work wonders for your hair but oil gives it certain minerals, vitamins and essential fatty acids that don’t just strengthen your roots but also boost overall health of your hair. Coconut oil comes most recommended by hair experts and mothers! It can protect your hair from sun damage, dandruff and removes sebum build-up from hair follicles accelerating hair growth.

Stores are full of commercial products that seem attractive and appealing but they have ingredients hidden in them that might not be as innocent as they may sound. Unlike the labels on the back of our food items, the labels on the back of our hair care products are mostly left unread. Sometimes commercial hair products can accumulate on the hair and scalp which can block pores, cause build-up, promote dryness, and slow the growth process of the hair. However, products made with natural ingredients will penetrate the hair and scalp and provide more moisture and vitality.

Organic products contain all natural ingredients that are nurturing to the hair and scalp. Commercial products contain a host of synthetic ingredients that do not nurture but deprive the hair and scalp of proper nourishment by providing artificial nutrition.

Another important aspect of hair care is the kind of comb that we use.Plastic and metal brushes are rough on the scalp. Wooden combs are soft and polished. They have a much softer feel than plastic or metal combs. If you have sensitive scalp then wooden combs can prevent bruising or scraping your scalp.
