Tip of the Day: Tips for Healthy Hair
How you wash your hair and the products you use can go a long way toward maintaining smooth, shiny hair.
How often you wash your hair should be based on how much oil your scalp produces.
If your scalp is oily, you may need to wash it as often as once a day, however if you have chemically treated hair, your hair may be drier, so you may want to wash it less frequently.
When washing your hair, concentrate on cleaning primarily the scalp, rather than washing the entire length of hair.
Use conditioner after every shampoo unless you use a “2-in-1” shampoo, which cleans and conditions hair.
Using a conditioner can significantly improve the look of damaged or weathered hair by increasing shine, decreasing static electricity, improving strength and offering some protection from harmful UV rays.
Concentrate conditioner on the tips of the hair, because conditioners can make fine hair look limp, they only should be used on the tips of the hair and not on the scalp or length of the hair.
