the best it can possibly be. Even if you have neglected your
hair in the past, it's never too late to get to the root of
the problems associated with it, or to practice some preventive
maintenance. Therefore learning a few tips for caring for
your long hair is handy and helpful. Therefore we have brought
for you tips to help you manage those long locks.
To achieve beautiful, shiny and long hair we recommend that
you let these tips go straight to your head:
When washing your hair, you should treat it with the utmost
care. Over enthusiastic rubbing, scrubbing and pulling can
lead to quite a lot of damage and hair loss and therefore
should be avoided. Hair should be rinsed very, very thoroughly
and with care. Never bunch your hair up when you wash it.
Keep it straight down as you wash from the scalp to the tips,
running your fingers lightly through your hair to keep it
from tangling and to fully wash it. Use a mild shampoo and
try to have the last rinse with cold water. This shrinks the
molecules of the hair and gets rid of superfluous coatings,
making hair much more manageable. Use a good conditioner to
condition your hair. When you've finished the washing and
conditioning process, mop up excess water with a towel wrapped
around your head for a few minutes.
Choose shampoos containing only natural ingredients with conditioning
properties. First, remove surface dirt through gentle rinse.
Rinse and lather again, massaging your head to increase the
blood supply to the scalp and roots. Don't vigorously rub
braids or weaves but do rinse in cascades of water to clean
the hair thoroughly. Wash your hair more frequently if you
have itching, flaking or dandruff. These conditions are not
due to dryness. Thoroughly rinse out conditioner, or the residue
will dirty your hair faster.
Never brush hair when it's wet. De-tangle as much of your
hair as you can with your fingers. Finally, use a wide-spaced
comb to smooth and untangle your hair gently. Begin to comb
from the bottom, working slowly up the strands. Never start
at the top and tug downwards as this can do a lot of damage
to your hair.
Bend forward allowing hair to fall. Use a large oval brush
to bring hair from the nape of the neck over the head and
down to the ends. Then, stand straight again with hair falling
normally and brush from the underside of the hairline down
the strands to the ends. Now, brush the top layers into place
with long, even strokes. After each stroke, smooth hair with
hands to reduce static. Increase the number of strokes daily
until you find a comfortable routine. Never brush hair when
Dry hair naturally always since it is good for your hair texture.
If blow-drying is necessary, blow in downward strokes only
on cool setting.
A healthy scalp produces natural oil, which coats the hair
strand and protects it from the environment. Therefore brush
your hair regularly for 10 to 15 minutes in order to distribute
the scalp oil over and down to the end of the hair. If you
have dry hair at the ends then use good oil products for your
hair and apply the oil directly to the areas where it is needed.
Do not apply too much oil to your hair as it will make your
scalp and hair sticky which will in turn attract too much
dirt and make your hair dirty very soon.
Protect your hair from over-exposure to sun, salt, chemicals
or chlorinated water, wind and pollution. Wear a hat, cap
or scarf if you can. Seek out hair products with sunscreens.
