Your Hair Type
There are about 100,000 hairs on your head and sometimes it seems like there are almost as many hair care products, so find the right product for your hair type can be a bit difficult if you do not know what to look for. Do not panic, if you look beyond the jargon, most of us fall into one of three categories "oily hair", "dry hair" and "normal hair". Today, we will examine the causes and treatments of oily and dry hair and recommend hair care products for use with these hair types.
Oily hair is caused by the excessive production of sebum, the natural oil present in the hair. Sebum is not a bad thing and the right amount will leave your hair shiny and natural. Too much sebum, though, and you get that look "just dipped in the deep fryer", which is so much last season.
If you have oily hair, the first thing you need to identify is the proper shampoo. The first obvious thought would be a shampoo specifically formulated for oily hair, however, if you have mixed hair (hair that is oily on the crown but dry at the ends), these shampoos can be too hard. In this case, you should use a mild shampoo and wash frequently, ideally every day.
It's important to wash your hair well, massage the scalp during shampooing to exfoliate, and then shampoo through the hair from root to tip. Shampoos recommended for oily hair are Fudge Oomf Shampoo and Clynol Energize Shampoo, which help control the balance of hair moisture.
You should combine the shampoo with a conditioner formulated for oily hair and should only apply conditioner to the ends of your hair, avoiding the scalp and roots.
If you have oily hair, you should avoid strong styling products and chemical treatments, as these can contribute to the oil.
In addition to choosing the right hair care products, it's an old cliché, but, you're what you eat and eating a lot of oily junk food will contribute to your oily hair. You know what to do girls … drink lots of water, fresh fruits and vegetables and avoid golden bows!
Dry hair lacks the essential oil and moisture they need to shine and often have a fragile straw texture. There are a number of factors that can cause greasy hair, ranging from more serious causes, such as malnutrition and anorexia, to drying excessive bleeding and the use of aggressive detergents on your hair.
If you have dry hair, you should wash less hair than you want to keep the moisture that you have locked in your hair. Twice a week is a sensible guide for how often you should shampoo.
You want to use hair care products that will increase the hydration of your hair and, fortunately, there are many available. Fudge's Wet Hed Shampoo is specially formulated to revitalize dry, damaged and chemically treated hair, maintaining natural oils and protecting them from moisture loss. We also recommend Osmo Essence Deep Moisturizing Shampoo and Rescue Moisturizing Shampoo.
Properly conditioning the hair is also essential to restore lost moisture and for best results a deep conditioner should be used on dry hair after shampooing. Fudge Dynamite Rebuild and Osmo Essence Deep Moisturizing Reconstructor are two excellent conditioners, the latter containing extracts of patchouli and ylang ylang essential oils.
You should choose styling products that will give a smooth, shiny finish rather than matte finishes.
In addition to choosing the right products for hair care, avoid spending too much time in the sun, on the use of heat and ideally, you should wear a swimming cap in the pools or the # Salt water. You should also avoid excessive hair coloring, sometimes try natural coloring?
Again, a good balanced diet with lots of vitamins A, C and E, calcium and drinking a lot of water will help improve the condition of your hair. Regular exercise and a good night's sleep will also do the trick, so more excuses to fend off that gym membership!
If you follow the tips above and choose the right hair care products, you should quickly see a noticeable improvement in the condition of your hair. But do not worry, I'm sure you'll always find a good excuse to indulge in this double chocolate ice cream!
