Healthy Hair Care Tips

Here are some basic hair care tips that you can use to improve the health and look of your hair.

• A healthy lifestyle will mean healthier hair for you. Excessive stress, smoking, not exercising and not eating nutritiously are not healthy for your hair.
• Get enough sleep.
• Avoid using hair styling products with alcohol which dries out hair.
• Avoid puting hair styling products directly on your scalp, if you put it on your scalp you'll clog the pores on your head.
• Swimming
Before entering a pool, wet your hair so your hair will soak up the initial water instead of the chlorinated water.
• When swimming where a cap to protect your hair from chlorinated water, if you choose not to wear a cap make sure you shampoo and condition your hair right after you are done swimming.
• Hot air can be damaging to your hair so when using a hair dryer use the cool setting.
• Don't leave the blowdryer in one spot for more than a few seconds, keep it moving and at a good distance away from your hair. To speed up the drying process, pat your hair dry with a towell and let the remaining moisture in your hair dry naturally.
• Gently use your fingers or a pick to untangle any knots while your hair is drying.
