Online PR News – 01-February-2015 – new york – While everyone wants hair that makes their faces look attractive, all the combing, styling and primping can cause a great deal of damage to hair. Achieving a balance between condition and style requires careful thought and know-how. The article below will teach you how to improve the health of your hair.Refrain from using too many appliances on your hair to keep it strong and healthy. Curling irons and blow dryers are not that good for your hair. This can make it troublesome to get rid of frizz and hair damage. It's a great idea to let your hair rest and recuperate by putting down the styling tools from time to time.Avoid damaging your hair by brushing it only when it is dry. Wet hair tends to be fragile, a lot more so than dry hair, which will make it break much easier. To keep damage at a minimum, try brushing your hair prior to showering or waiting until your hair dries before you comb it.It's not true that cutting your hair more makes it grow faster. Human hair grows at a constant rate, about 1/2 inch each month, no matter how much you cut it. It's not your stylist's shears that are making your hair grow faster, although you may experience a slight increase in growth during the summer, or if you're taking biotin supplements. Getting your hair trimmed in a timely fashion keep split ends and breakage at bay, which is what causes some people to incorrectly think trims affect hair growth.Alcohol is an ingredient found in some hair care products. It can harm your hair by drying it out. This is really bad for the health of your hair, and you should be careful of what products you use. Always read the ingredients list on hair care products before you purchase them, so that you can find out whether the products contain chemicals that are good for your hair.Drying your hair with a blow dryer could actually be damaging it. It is best to do this by using the cool air setting and constantly move your blow dryer around. Use your fingers to untangle knots, and then dry your hair gently before you brush it.Use a conditioning treatment only if your hair appears to look dry. After shampooing your hair as normal, wring out the excess water, apply the conditioner of your choice, and cover your hair with a shower cap until the conditioner has a chance to absorb - usually five to ten minutes. The extra heat created by the cap allows the conditioner to penetrate further into your hair follicles.Don't rub your hair with your towel when you are drying it. Tugging or briskly rubbing hair causes frizz and breakage. Instead, blot, pat or squeeze any excess moisture out of your hair. Never use a brush on wet hair, only use a comb with wide teeth.Gently massaging the scalp will improve circulation which may stimulate hair growth. It can also break up clogged pores on your head that might be hindering the growth of your hair. A good way to ensure that your hair has optimal hair growth is to run your brush through it 100 times each day.Get your hair somewhat dry via other methods before using a blow dryer. A blow dryers heat can damage your hair. It strips the hair shafts of the natural oils and moisture that it needs to look shiny and stay healthy. By getting excess water off of the hair with a towel, you will not need as much hot air from the dryer.Your hair represents the person that you are. You don't need to be the king or queen of hairstyles, but grooming your hair well sends a positive message to others. Apply the things you've just learned, and represent yourself as a capable and confident person.
