15 days of Hair Care

  1. Many teens care for oily hair by washing it once a day — or more if they’re active. As long as you treat your hair gently when it’s wet, frequent washing shouldn’t harm it.
  2. If you have acne, it’s a good idea to keep the hair around your face clean so hair oils don’t clog your pores.
  3. If you’re washing your hair every day or more, it may be better to choose a mild shampoo instead of a shampoo designed for oily hair. Now a days cosmecutical companies have come up with a wide range of shampoos meant even for daily use.
  4. For some people — especially people with fine, fragile, or combination hair (hair that’s oily at the crown but dry on the ends) — shampoos for oily hair can be too harsh. If you have oily hair and want to use a conditioner, choose one that’s made for oily hair.
  5. If your hair is dry, it’s a good idea to wash it less frequently. Some people only need to wash their hair once a week — and that’s fine.
  6. Many people who have curly hair also have dry hair. Curly and dry hair types are usually more fragile than straight hair, so you’ll need to be especially careful about using heat styling products. Shampoos made for dry hair and hair conditioners can help.
  7. Regular haircuts are one of the best ways to help keep hair healthy. Even if you have long hair or you’re trying to grow your hair, a haircut can help protect the ends of your hair from splitting and damage. In fact, cutting may actually help your hair grow better because it’s healthy and not breaking off.
  8. Dandruff-When shampooing, massage your scalp (but don’t scratch) for at least 5 minutes, loosening the flakes with your fingers. Rinse your hair well after washing. If your dandruff doesn’t improve, see your doctor.
  9. Hair Breakage-A major cause of hair breakage is improper use of chemical hair treatments.,but brushing or combing hair too frequently or in the wrong way (such as using a fine-toothed comb on very thick, curly hair or teasing hair) can lead to breakage. Hair extensions and braids can also cause breakage. Leaving them in too long or pulling them out without professional help can cause hair and scalp damage or even hair loss.
  10. Sometimes hair breakage and dry, brittle hair are signs of a medical problem, such as hypothyroidism or an eating disorder. So do have a dermatological consultation whenever required.
  11. It’s normal for everyone to lose some hair. In fact, we lose about 100 hairs each day as old hairs fall out and are replaced with new ones.
  12.  Hair loss can be temporary or permanent, depending on the cause. For temporary cause- having good, balanced diet and relieving stress factors is sufficient. As with the rest of our bodies, hair is healthiest when we eat right, exercise, and protect it from too much sun.
