How would you describe your hair? Would you use words like obstinate, brittle, damaged, dull or worse? All your hair needs is fat, moisture, and TLC. By nature, the cuticles covering every hair are smoothly tiled to create on even light-reflecting surface. This smooth surface is disturbed in damaged hair; the cuticles do not form the naturally tight even surface. In this state, the outer hair cuticles reflect little light. As a result damaged hair looks dull and lifeless.
Consistent proper care will provide your hair with vitality and silky shine. The steps to hair with a healthy glow will be quick and easy once you know what to do and what not to do.
1st Step: The Shampoo
Use a mild shampoo with potent conditioners. It is important to massage the conditioning shampoo directly onto the scalp keeping the shampoo away from the ends as much as possible. Rinse out the shampoo but stop rinsing when the hair still feels silky soft. Very damaged hair needs treatments, which are designed to repair damaged hair.
2nd Step: Drying Your Hair
Blow-dry your hair from the roots toward the hair ends rather than the other way around. This is easier on the hair cuticles and minimises frizz. Using this technique will help you keep your hair shiny.
3rd Step: Styling
Hair oil is the ultimate remedy for dull looking hair. Even a trace of hair oil brings back the lustre and supple nature of hair. Fly-away hair will behave properly if you treat it with gloss or moisture spray.
Other Dry Hair Remedies
Aside from the proper hair care, regular scalp massages can prevent hair from drying out by stimulating the blood flow to the scalp. Brushing your hair from the roots to the hair ends also helps. Every brush stroke carries the sebum from the scalp toward the hair ends. Brushing will make your hair supple and provide deep lustre.
