Failed to get a beautiful, shiny and soft hair?
Getting tired of the fake promises by the tempting expensive hair products available in the market?
Here is some good news for you. Without spending much, you can now become a proud man / woman with a beautiful hair.
First of all, let me ask you if you really understand what a shiny hair means. Hair becomes shiny when the scales of the cuticle, the protective outer layer of each hair strand, are perfectly smooth and flat against the hair shaft. The intact cuticle cells are usually flat, smooth and glossy.
But how is the shine created?
When the light gets reflected across the cuticles, a smooth hair cuticle looks like a roof with all the shingles lying flat, however regular styling, heat processing, and hair-coloring cause those shingles to lift.
When the cuticles get a healthy coating of sebum, a natural hair oil, the best shine is seen. And the hair that lacks the needed moisture to reflect light is considered to be the dull hair. Hair lacking the needed moisture and natural oils absorbs the light rather than reflecting it.
But this sebum can be damaged or completely removed from the hair due to some internal and external factors such as hormonal imbalances, harsh shampoo formulas, chemical processing, improper use of hot styling tools, weather and the environment.
To improve the texture of your hair, try using these hair care tips, you will definitely notice a marked improvement:
1. Shampoo your hair whenever you feel the need according to your hair type. Use a shampoo that increases the moisture thereby striving to maintain the natural oil mantle of your hair.
2. Do not forget to condition your hair every time you shampoo it. Go for a nutrient-rich conditioner which moisturizes and fills in the tiny cracks in your hair shaft.
3. While drying your hair, please be gentle, do not pull or rub with rough-textured towels. As wet hair is fragile, and a little amount of friction will damage the cuticle.
4. Get glossy with a water soluble fine serum – look for cyclomethicone on the label. As these glossiers are the best in restoring shine and balancing hair.
If done regularly, these hair care tips will help condition, moisten the hair along with providing a remarkable shine.
