How to take care of hairWe recommend that you read:
It's not enough just to follow the procedures recommended in this article to improve hair growth, you must know the rules of care and strictly observe them. Specialists give the following recommendations:
- Do not comb wet hair.It is necessary to wait until they are a little dry, but do not dry them with a hairdryer.Combing wet hair should be carefully, picking on the string and moving the comb from the tips to the roots.
- You should wash your hair with only those shampoos that match the type of hair.The same applies to the choice of balms, hair conditioners.
- In winter, and in general in cold weather, do not go out without a hat.From low temperatures, the hair becomes brittle, the tips are split.
- Regardless of the condition of the hair, you need to regularly make them a mask - nourishing and moisturizing.Experts recommend that you pay time for such procedures at least once a week.
- To go to bed with the braided hair too it is not necessary - dissolve them, comb, let they "will be impregnated" with oxygen and will have a rest.
- If you have to dye your hair, then get the paint without ammonia and hydrogen peroxide in the composition.
- Should not be a daily procedure for hair styling and drying them with a hair dryer.Let this be a pleasant exception.
In addition, it is highly desirable to not only comb your hair every night before going to bed, but also to do a head massage.For this you do not need any special knowledge, just with your fingertips do circular movements, tapping, rubbing on the scalp.What will it give?First of all, blood circulation will significantly improve - it will restore and activate hair follicles.And even such a massage will relieve the day's tension, sleep at night will be calm and deep, and the result will be a good mood.
If a person is constantly stressed, is depressed or has strong psycho-emotional "hesitations," then there can be no question of any hair growth!I'll have to visit a psychologist who will not only help to restore and stabilize his inner world, but also will help improve hair growth.
Another point - a holiday at the seaside.Many believe that ultraviolet rays and seawater have a beneficial effect on health.Yes, this is really true, but not for the hair.It is necessary to wear hats or panamas - this will protect the hair from the sun, keep them strong, prevent fragility and dry locks.And if you do not wash your hair with ordinary water after bathing in the sea, you can soon expect not only stopping hair growth, but also a significant deterioration in their appearance.
