shouldn't be a mystery - yet why is it that we never hear people
talking about 'a good hair day'? It's always 'a bad hair day', isn't
it? Yet who doesn't feel better on a 'good hair day'?
The desire for beautiful hair is not new. Ancient
Egyptians shaved their heads and wore elaborate, heavy, braided wigs to
achieve perfection. European history also abounds with torturous hair
styles including the ornate, powdered styles wrapped around frames and
horsehair which attracted vermin. All in the name of beauty.
And today we go for a hair transplant, hair
straighteners, hair replacement, hair restoration ... when good hair treatment can often boil down
to simple common sense.
Fashion still influences a woman's hairstyle but
that doesn't mean you have to subject your hair to needless damage.
Take advantage of the tips below on caring properly for your hair, and
you'll avoid the frazzled exasperation of coping with hair that simply
won't do what you want.
Hair Treatment 1:
Washing And Conditioning
Hair is not a living part of your body. However,
your hair still needs proper treatment for optimum health and beauty.
One of the key elements to having shiny, healthy hair is to allow the
natural oils in the scalp to lubricate it. The hair closest to the
scalp benefits from natural sebum oils the most, while longer hair can
become dry and brittle from a lack of these oils.
Shampoo, no matter what exotic ingredients it's
made from, performs a simple job of removing excess oils, pollution and
styling product build up. All of your hair needs gentle cleansing but
it is the top two or three inches that is most weighed down with
natural oils and dulling hair products. Concentrate on washing that
area and you will reduce the amount of oils removed from longer areas
of hair so they don't become over-dried.
Conditioning on the other hand should be used
sparingly, if at all, on the top inches of the hair. Concentrate on the
ends. Conditioning is an important step to replace needed oils and
provide protection from styling agents such as blow dryers and irons.
Hair Treatment 2:
Your hair will look its best when you choose a
style that requires the least amount of heat and products. Protecting
your hair with conditioners is key, but choosing a style that suits the
texture of your hair will eliminate the need for more torturous styling
Frizzy and dry hair can benefit from the
application of silicone based products. Bear in mind that a little goes
a long way. Concentrate the product on the ends of your hair.
When blow drying, keep the blow dryer at least six
inches from your hair to prevent excessive damage from the heat. Blow
drying in the direction of the shaft (down the length of hair) will
create a smoother appearance.
Hair Treatment 3:
Coloring and Perming
Make sure your hair is in a healthy condition
before applying any chemical treatment. Overuse of these hair
treatments can damage hair beyond repair - and then the products are
likely to produce unpredictable results.

Hair Treatment 4:
Cutting Your Hair
Your hair will look shinier and feel thicker when
you remove dried and split ends. Trimming your hair every 6 to 8 weeks
will keep it looking at its best.
So hair treatment really is straight-forward. By
taking such simple steps to maintain healthy hair rather than resorting
to extreme restoration and replacement regimes will put you on track to
hair days' than you ever thought possible!
