10 Essentials for Healthy Hair (6-10)

 This post concludes the series on the Essentials for Healthy Hair.  In part one, we learned that healthy hair starts from within.  This post focuses on how to physically handle your hair for beautiful locks. 

6) A good conditioner:  Condition, condition, and condition more!  Leave-in conditioners and moisturizer conditioners are best.  For those with kinky, curly and coily hair, thicker or creamier conditioners are good.  Again, try to stay away from sulphates.  It is important to read the back of labels because a lot of what is highlighted on the front of hair products are not key ingredients.  If the key ingredients you are looking for are not listed towards the beginning of the list then put that product back on the shelf.  Keep your hair balanced with both protein and conditioner.

7) Scalp messages: I love scalp massages;they’re relaxing and they feel so good.  Scalp massages stimulate the scalp by opening up blood vessels to increase blood flow and circulation.  This means fewer split ends and hair breakage.  Massaging the scalp allows hair follicles to receive the necessary nutrients for hair growth, while strengthening the roots of the hair and promoting thickness.  Using oils to massage the scalp can also decrease dandruff and dry scalp.

8) Little or no heat: Heat can be a friend and a curse to kinky, coily and curly textured hair.  Too much heat is damaging to the hair.  Even too much hot water can harm beautiful locks.  If you must apply heat, try to use thermal protection.  Try air drying your hair and experimenting with styles that need no heat at all, such as braids, twists, and bantu knots.

9) Trim Ends: Let’s face it; trimmed hair looks healthier.  Our hair goes through a lot due to the environment, products and styling options.  Most professionals suggest trimming your ends at least every 6-8 weeks.  Only trim your hair when needed because every head of hair is different, and some people can go longer if they treat and condition their hair regularly.  Hair trimming is an essential to one’s healthy hair regimen. 

10) Low stress life:  When you are stressed it shows on your hair, skin and nails.  Stress damages hair follicles, causes graying and thinning, and in some cases it prevents hair growth.  Identify what’s causing you to become stressed.  Meditation, exercising and massages are helpful in reducing stress.

Lesson: The hair is the richest ornament of women.  ~Martin Luther
