When a person has great hair it is very easy to work with it. Hairstyles look better, the hair looks healthy and shiny, it photographs better, and also gives a great overall look to the model. But keeping your hair healthy is something that takes times and a lot of effort. Taking care of it one day and then completely ignoring it the next with not work. Every hair strand needs to go through a period where it is treated with vitamins and the correct hair care products before it starts to show its true beauty.
Good care starts with the correct way to wash it. Shampooing your hair needs to be done carefully with circular movements. Try to massage your scalp for about a minute or two before rinsing out the shampoo. If your hair is particularly oily, then repeat the process one more time. Next, apply a small amount of conditioner to the ends. While the shampoo cleans your hair, the conditioner softens each strand and will make it a lot easier for it to be brushed thoroughly. The water you use for washing your hair should be cool rather than hot. Hot water can damage the strands, which in turn makes the hair strands very easy to break once you start brushing them through.
Dry your hair on a cool setting as well, although not too cold. Keep the hair dryer a fair distance from the hair so that it does not burn it. Once the hair is completely dry, set the hair dryer on its coolest setting and blow dry the hair again with it. The cool air at the end of the drying process will firm up the hair strands for the brush that will come next. Never brush your locks when they are wet. Wet hair is very elastic and breaks very easily when it stretches so much so use a comb instead. Also, when you are drying, it is always a good idea to use some sort of heat protecting product to prevent damage. Hair takes a long time to grow to its full length again once it breaks, so it is important to keep good care of it through.
Every once in a while your hair also describes a little special care as well. Hair masks are a great way to help hair get back its glow and also to give it some vitamins and minerals that are essential for its growth. There are a number of ways that you can make a homemade hair mask. One of the most popular ones is the olive oil and egg yolk mask. Mix them together, apply with your hands, and leave for about twenty minutes before washing hair. Or if you do not like home recipes, you could always buy a hair mask. They are specialized for different hair types, are made from different fruits and extracts and for different purposes. Just make sure to always read the instructions correctly when using them.
Last but not least, food is also an important part of hair care. Eating a healthy and balanced diet ensures the correct function of all parts of the body, including the hair.
