[dropcap]S[/dropcap]hiny hair that moves or flows freely is considered to be healthy. And because of those factors the hair has what I call the “touchability factor”. The appearance of shining, bouncing hair is very alluring. Just like the Charmin people are tempted to touch it. If that’s the kind of hair that you’re longing for then check out the 3 keys to healthier and longer hair. Here’s the breakdown:
1. Healthy scalp condition Healthy hair starts with a good scalp environment that promotes healthy hair growth. A healthy scalp can breathe. It is clean, and free of dandruff, debris and or product buildup. Sufficient scalp manipulation helps stimulate blood circulation to the scalp helps the scalp. This is essential for hair growth. Your scalp should be supple or flexible not dry or tight feeling.
2. Shampooing often enough – [picappgallerysingle id=”5216028″]Shampooing the hair as often as necessary to remove excess oil, perspiration and product residue will not only cleanse the hair and scalp but will at the same time replenish moisture to your hair. Not shampooing often enough can lead to creating an envirronment where bacteria can grow and fester possibly leading to a condition called dermatitis. This situation is often mistaken for dandruff.
3. Split end managment – Practically everything we do to our hair on a regular basis over time causes some hair damage. Even seemingly harmless things like combing or brushing can cause hair damage. If you’d like to achieve the greatest amount of length possible for your hair then you must recieve haircuts on a systematic basis. There are no ifs, ands or buts about it. The fastest way to achieve and or maintain longer lengths of hair is by regularly trimming just the ends usually 1/2 inch or less depending on the length of your hair) before they become too frayed and then more will have to be cut. Don’t be afraid scissors are not your enemy.
