How to Take Care of Your Hair

Probably, most of us are wondering if every day wash can damage the hair. Unfortunately, it is really so.

Experts usually advise to avoid washing the hair more than 1-2 times a week, as shampoos may remove serum from your hair and scalp. It can be damaging as serum is natural oil that protects, waterproofs, and keeps your hair and skin from becoming dry, cracked or brittle.

However, most of us would find it unreasonable, as environmental pollution in large cities and every-day use of hairstyling product, such as hair spray, gel or wax, do not allow us to have beautiful hairdo without more frequent washing.

So, here are some simple tips on how to protect and maintain a head of beautiful and healthy hair:

  1. Start washing your hair with rinsing to remove dust, dirt and styling aids.
  2. Use neutral shampoos (with average pH levels). The amount of shampoo used for long hair should not exceed a tablespoon.
  3. Do not wash your hair twice in succession, as the second wash will wash out the nutrients from your hair.
  4. Massage the scalp to loosen the dead skin cells. It will help to prevent dandruff.
  5. Wash hair in warm water and rinse it in cool water to close the cuticle and add shine.
  6. Rinse your hair well.
  7. Never squeeze your hair when it’s wet. A towel may be used to absorb excess water.
  8. Comb hair very gently, so that you are not damaging its structure. Clean your comb/brush at least twice a month - wash it in warm water with shampoo.
  9. At least once a month use moisturizing oils or creams, such as jojoba or wheaten oil. Wet hair and apply it directly onto scalp. Blot your hair with a towel and leave for 10-15 minutes. Rinse out.
  10. Do not dry hair under a hair drier, as high temperatures can be very harmful. If you cannot avoid it, try using your hair dryer on cool setting and keep it at distance of 15-20 cm from the hair.
