Basic Hair Care for Healthier Hair

Many of us have heard the saying: “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder".  If we ourselves are the beholder, often times we end up being our worst critic.  We always love to find flaws about ourselves.  The most popular flaw area we find is our hair. Many of us dislike our hair saying that it is too dry, too oily, too unruly too frizzy or too straight. 

Hence, hair care is a booming, million dollar industry.  Hair stylist and hair maintenance are often our best friends.  With the surge of so many technological tools, we can now rely on advanced hair care products, tools and equipment as a way of solving our hair problems.  With these, we can maintain the hair cuts and hair styles the hair stylist provides us with. 

It is great to have all these new hair care products, equipment and technology that surface as it allows us to address our hair care problems without much fuss.  In this article, we will share with you ten of the most basic hair care tips known to man.

First off, you should use the right hair care products for your specific hair type.  If you have damaged or dry hair, use hair products that are formulated to cater to that specific damage.  Get a trim every 6 to 8 weeks, even if you are growing your hair longer.  Cutting off ends before they split will keep your hair looking healthy and save you hair care headaches.  Use hair care products containing sunscreen as the sun can be really harmful to the hair.

Shampoo your hair only when it is dirty and not daily as shampooing daily can make your hair dry.  Turn to a professional for all of your hair care needs as they know more about hair than you do.  Use professional conditioning hair coloring systems.  Stick with one chemical service and do not use so many all at once.  Add texture to your hair and choose hair color that compliments your style.  Finally, use a wide-toothed comb when your hair is wet.
