Hair is a key identifying asset of any individual. There are different hair types, related hair problems and of course, solutions to handle them.
Hair growth is an ongoing process, where at any given point, 85% of the hair on the head is growing, while about 15% is resting and will likely fall out. Excessive hair loss may be caused because of improper diet, health conditions, lifestyle conditions, or genetic predisposition.
Hair types can be broadly divided into normal hair, oily hair, and dry hair. Normal hair as the name implies indicates that the hair is strong, healthy, and has adequate amount of moisture. Oily hair as the term implies means an oily scalp with overactive sebaceous glands. This makes the hair look limp and lifeless.
However, thanks to the present day shampoos, this is largely contained. Dry hair is frizzy, lackluster, and dull. It can be caused by a variety of reasons either naturally or because of subjecting the hair to all kinds of modern day treatments!
Hair types can also take on a combination. The combination of the hair and scalp together determine the hair type.
The scalp and hair can both be of the same type. Or it can take on the following combinations, oily scalp and dry hair, oily scalp and normal hair, dry scalp and normal hair.
Choosing the right hair care product & its application
The correct hair care product seeks to cleanse, replace lost nutrients, lock moisture in, and protect the hair cuticle. This will result in a smooth texture and a great sheen.
Almond oil is very good for hair growth. But if you want the hair to grow fast along with thickness, then use a mixture of castor oil and coconut oil.
A gentle nourishing shampoo followed by treatment with a good conditioner is recommended for all hair types. Always use the shampoo from the base to the ends.
Massage the head in sections to prevent tangling. Gently squeeze the water out of the hair. Do not rub severely this will result in breakage.
