Golden Rules for Healthy and Beautiful Hair

Everyone woman wants beautiful hair, but often the promises in those TV ads for shampoo and conditioner just don’t make good.  If you tend to have lots of bad hair days, here are some beauty tips for healthy hair that may improve the look and feel of it and reduce those bad hair days when you feel like tearing it out and wearing a wig instead.

  • One good rule is to stop washing your hair every day. This only encourages your scalp to produce ever more oils to prevent damage to the hair and so you feel like washing it even more.  Stop this cycle by reducing your shampoos to no more than twice a week.
  • Use only top quality shampoo and conditioners without any toxic ingredients, or make your own at home.
  • If your hair is coloured or permed, don’t wash it too often as this will dry it out.
  • If your hair seems to be getting more and more dry, changing the shampoo and conditioner often helps. This is because shampoos especially are not all created equal. Some work on a specific type of oil and others work in some other way, so change products occasionally.
  • Use leave in conditioners and other products to nourish your hair.
  • Have your hair professionally styled and cut often.
