SMART TIPS FOR BETTER HAIR CARE

How to prevent hair loss:

When it comes to hair, losing it is the greatest worry women have. So it’s understandable to get just plain fed-up with the 150 strands most of us lose naturally daily – and happily, there is light at the end of the tunnel. When it comes to how to prevent hair loss, here’s how to start the journey to victory and volume…

PREVENTIONS:

Make a habit of giving your hair TLC, showering it with love and attention (and products). Use conditioner with every wash, and make regular dates with an intensive conditioning mask
When towel drying your hair, press, dab and gently squeeze your hair dry instead of rubbing which can cause damage, breakage and hair loss
When your hair’s wet it’s at its most vulnerable, so be gentle. A wide-tooth comb is your best friend, accompanied by leave-in conditioner and detangling spray for extra delicate care
Your diet’s important, too – avoid crash diets, which can deprive you of the nutrients and vitamins your hair needs. A healthy balanced diet is essential for our locks to stay luscious and full
Protect your hair against anything that might cause it to break – that includes thermal styling, perms and colouring – and keep pampering it afterwards
Most importantly, stress is often a cause for hair loss. So make sure you find time to chill out and put your feet up (it’s a good excuse anyway)

ABOUT HAIR FALL AND HAIR GROWTH:

There are many common misconceptions about the reasons for hair fall and hair growth. But do you know the truth from the myth? Read on to find out.

  • #1: Sunlight makes hair grow-
    Excessive exposure to Sunlight can lead to hair damage. The ultra violet rays of the sun can damage the hair making them look dull and dehydrated. The hair might shine in the sun due to reflection of light but this only happens when the hair surface is smooth.
  • #2: A wig or hat can stop hair growth-
    Neither a wig nor a hat will interfere with the growth of hair, as hair grows from the follicle. However, any covering on the head may rub against the scalp causing hair breakage.
  • #3: Daily wash can affect hair growth-
    Hair growth and fall follows a natural cycle and it depends on individual to individual. Daily washing of hair has nothing to do with either shedding or growth. Good shampoos and conditioners are helpful in reducing hair breakage and thus protecting from hair damage.
  • #4: Taking vitamins will promote hair growth-
    The hair follicle gets its nourishment from the food we eat, hence maintaining a healthy life style, consuming a balanced diet and maintaining good hygiene are basics to keep beautiful hair. Consuming vitamin supplements with doctors recommendation can be helpful.
  • #5: Stress can be a major reason for hair loss-
    Hormonal changes and Stress are known to increase the shedding cycle thereby resulting in excessive hair fall. Once the hormone levels are normal and stress is reduced, the hair can growth becomes normal.
  • #6: Scalp massage promotes hair growth-
    It is necessary that the body receives good blood circulation as it is helpful to keep all the vital organs functioning well. Massaging the scalp can too be helpful in improving blood circulation to keep the follicular unit well functioning.
  • #7: Frequent trims make hair grow faster-
    Hair grows 1.33 cm/ month; trimming hair often can only result in reduced hair length. To achieve maximum hair length it is necessary that the hair is protected and maintained from being damage.
  • #8: Having dandruff causes hair loss-
    Dandruff is not necessarily harmful, during excessive dandruff one tends to scratch the head, and at times in the same region of the scalp, this may result in dislodging the hair from its roots leading to hair loss.
  • #9: Hair loss doesn’t affect young women-
    There are 100,000 hair on a human head, while losing 50 to 100 hair strands is natural and normal, hair fall can either occur due to hair damage leading to hair breakage or shedding, which is a natural phenomenon. In young age women try and experiment with hair in terms of grooming and chemical treatments which may result in a lot of hair breakage, but a lot also depends on the individuals health . As the age progresses and above 40 yrs the hair becomes thinner and drier.
  • #10: Plucking grey stimulates new hair growth-
    While this isn’t true, plucking out those gray strands is not a good habit. You can damage the roots, causing infection or leaving a scar.

HOW TO TAKE CARE OF CURLY HAIR:

Goldilocks, Maggi, Poodle head, Fuzz, Mushroom – your identity has always been defined by your hair. You’ve loved it and you’ve hated it, sometimes both at the same time. You’ve oiled it, straightened it, you’ve even tried all home remedies, but nothing seems to work to calm your curls down.

But there’s something irresistibly gorgeous about your curls. They are wild, free and unpredictable, and we wouldn’t change them for the world. Though they have a mind of their own, a little care from you would go a long way in keeping them beautiful.Wondering how to manage your curls? Here are a few hair care tips that will teach you how to manage curly hair and help you keep it at its glossy, bouncy and voluminous best:

Make conditioner your best friend. Natural curly hair often tends to be dry. This is because the oils produced by your scalp struggle to reach the ends of your strands due to the kinks and curls. Look for deep conditioning products to keep it moisturised. Use a conditioner, every time you wash your hair.

Hair serum will work like magic. If your curls are prone to frizz, a nourishing hair serum will work on it to make it soft and smoother. Apply it to damp or dry hair to help smooth frizz and fly-aways. Say no to towels. After you wash your hair, don’t towel-dry it, as that will only cause your hair to frizz more. Instead tilt your head forward and squeeze upwards gently to get rid of the excess water. You’ll get better sculpted curls.

A diff-user works best. A big part of curly hair care is learning to dry it gently and minimally. When you blow dry your hair, use a diffuser (which reduces frizz by distributing the heat evenly) – but don’t over-dry, just dry out the majority of the water and then leave the rest to dry naturally.
Brush off the brush. It might go against everything your mum taught you, but brushing is too aggressive for curly hair. It will pull out the natural curl and you’ll lose definition and provoke frizz. If you want to untangle your hair, do it when your hair is wet using a wide-toothed comb, start at the ends of the hair and work your way up to avoid breakage.

These tips will not only let you embrace your curls but make you fall in love with them too. Nothing is more beautiful than bouncy, perfectly defined ringlets swaying with the breeze. Let your hair give you that beautiful individuality, after all being beautiful comes only when you are yourself.

HOW TO GET SHINY HAIR:

Want to know how to make your hair shiny? Of course you do – who doesn’t? Possessing shiny, glossy locks is pretty much the holy grail of hair care. In fact, according to a study we carried out, 58% of us feel like we’re on a never-ending quest to combat, dull dry hair. Well, ladies, your search ends here: we’ve got the best tips for shiny hair, helping you to transform your locks into the glossy, lustrous hair you’ve been dreaming of…

Shiny hair is healthy hair, so the first and most important step is to keep it nourished and cared for. This means a gentle shampoo and a rich, moisturising conditioner to smooth down your hair’s cuticles.

Never underestimate the power of oil when it comes to your hair. But not just any old oil: Hibiscus & Argan oil have amazing properties. Find them in our Dove Elixir – Nourished Shine, specially created to nourish dull hair, help retain moisture and lend it a magical luminosity.
This is a simple one – brush your hair daily. Brushing your hair distributes the natural oils your scalp produces, so your hair is coated from root to tip and naturally shiny.

Your diet could have a big part to play in the condition of your hair. Including Omega-3 fatty acid-rich foods like oily fish could help top up your hair’s oil reserves and amp up the shine. For the shiniest hair, make sure you keep it moisturised between washes with a leave-in conditioner.
