Great Habits for a Healthy Mane

Wednesday, October 21st, 2009

Hair care should not mean overspending at salons. It only takes basic hair-care routines to get a healthy mane. Here are a few steps to take care of your hair.

1. Regularly use the shampoo and conditioner recommended for your hair type ( permed, colored-treated, etc.) to offset the effects of sunlight and pollution.

2. Have your hair trimmed every five to six weeks to avoid split ends and save your current style.

3. Never use harsh nylon or metal combs or brushes if your hair strands are brittle.

4. Don’t brush wet hair. Use a wide-toothed comb to separate the tangles.

5. Don’t comb hair too much because this strips it of natural oils if your hair is dry. It over stimulates the oil glands if you have oily hair.

6. Don’t brush or comb your hair starting from the back. It will damage your hair.

7. Do regular exercises, especially head bends, to encourage blood circulation.
