Hair Care Tips:
- Brush your hair regularly before you go to bed each night as this removes the tangles.
- Use a mild shampoo to wash your hair. Use very little but enough so that it covers your hair fully with lather. Use a conditioner after a shampoo to keep hair soft, manageable and moist.
- It is not good to brush hair when it is wet so avoid brushing wet hair. This will cause the hair to stretch and finally break. Use your fingers to dry your hair and use a wide-toothed comb instead of a brush to gently remove the knots if there are any.
- Avoid using a blow-dryer.This makes the hair harsh and dry as it robs the roots of moisture.
- Avoid using dyes. Use mehandi (henna) instead as a conditioner and colouring agent. Dyes sometimes effect the eyes and the smell can be very strong and unpleasant causing uneasiness.
- Drink milk everyday, it is good for the health of the body as well as the hair. Take calcium supplements on a daily basis.
- If you are using a hair dryer, make sure to always hold it away from your hair. Direct air from the hair dryer down hair shaft and not directly into the roots as it might harm the hair and burn it, and keep it moving.
- After you have had a perm, never ever brush your hair. Instead comb hair gently with a wide tooth comb only.
- Avoid pulling back your hair tightly as this weakens the root and it breaks easily.
