Hairs are the most important part of an individual’s personality. There would be no single women in the world who is not concerned about her hairs. Taking care of hairs and their hygiene is very important not only for beauty but also for health. Hare care involves all the steps to be taken for hygiene and health of hairs.
Hare care differs according to one’s hair type, hair needs and weather conditions. Though our entire body has hair follicles but hair care here means care for the hair on the scalp.
When you consider the hair care, it means you should take care of hair and scalp skin also. All the living hair parts such as hair follicles, root sheath, hair root and sebaceous glands are below the skin. The hair shaft or cuticle is the nonliving part above the skin.
To ensure a healthy and shining hair, you should take care of health and hygiene of scalp skin.If you do not clean scalp skin regularly, dead skin cells get accumulated. It gives rise to infection due to toxins released by skin, bacteria, virus and chemicals.
Sebum produced by sebaceous glands protects the hair from microorganisms. It keeps the hair moisturize and shining. Sebum reaches the hair shaft by travelling naturally. It can be distributed by brushing and combing.
Hair cleaning is the most important aspect of hair care. Hairs are to be washed regularly to remove the things like dirt, grease, sweat. Hair should be washed by mild shampoo which should be selected according to the hair type. If you have oily hair, use shampoo designed for oily hair. For dry hair, choose shampoo for dry hair. If you use tend to use wrong shampoo, it will do more harm than any benefit.
Apart from shampoo, there are some natural products also which help keep the hair clean and healthy. The most important is scalp massage and washing the hair with clean plain water.
Conditioner is to hair what moisturizer is to the skin. Conditioner helps to keep the hair moist and protect from dryness. Whenever you shampoo your hair, ph level of hair and skin gets increased due to alkaline nature of shampoo. It removes the layer of natural oil from the hairs a bit. After shampooing, you can feel roughness, dryness and tangling in hair. To get rid all these problems and smooth the hair you need to use hair conditioner.
Conditioners are acidic in nature so they help to maintain the balance of ph of hair. Conditioners and acidic rinses help to get better manageability and reduce tabling of hairs. It helps to prevent any damage in the hair.
You should follow proper steps to wash your hair. First step is of course choosing the right hair care product that is shampoo. Conditioning after shampoo is also part of washing of hair.
Take shampoo on your palm according to size of your hair and lather in your hands. Now apply it over thoroughly wet hairs. Do not pile up the hairs as it will create tangles and open up the cuticles unnecessarily. Just squeeze the shampoo to any length of hair which is enough for washing. If you wash hair daily, it is not necessary to apply shampoo everyday; just wash with plain cold water.
To remove dead skin cells from scalp, do not scratch it too hard with nails rather use a fine toothed comb.
After shampoo apply conditioner. Apply it over damp hair to get it absorbed completely. After that rinse it out thoroughly with clean water so that there are no traces of conditioner in hair. If conditioner remains in hair, hair will look dull and become greasy.
For drying of hair, do not rub with towel, it will open up the cuticles and hair gets tangled. Use a microfiber towel to absorb the water quickly rather than ordinary towel. Air drying is the best way to make the hair dry.
Avoid use of excessive heat on hair. Excessive use of heat makes the hair unnecessarily dry and damages them. Do not use blow dryers, perming or straightening tool too much on hair. Avoid styling hair in tight braids or buns as they make the hair follicle weak. Eat a healthy and balanced diet to nourish the hair from inside.

To bring out natural highlights in brunette hair:
Put a couple of tablespoons of white wine vinegar in one quart of cold water to bring out your natural blonde highlights. finish your shower, (but leave the water running) then pour the vinegar and water through your hair. rinse your hair just a little.
for red highlights, use apple cider vinegar instead.
your hair will smell slightly like vinegar for a little while after your shower, so dont do this right before a date.
also, DO NOT USE MORE THAN TWO TABLESPOONS OF VINEGAR AND DO NOT USE MORE THAN ONCE OR TWICE A WEEK. twice is pushing it. too much is bad for your hair.
it worked super well for me and now my hair looks great! it has pretty honey and strawberry blonde and even some coppery highlights that werent very pronounced beforehand! my hair is now my pride and joy!

well the article is not so helpful neither tips.:-(
sorry.i have used herbel essence.panten,sunsilk,brut,.i used to have really fine ,long shinny hair.since i have start using shampoo its gone.
all those shampoo +conditioner stops the growth of the hair.say it blocks the pores to releas the natural oil and hair growth.do not use the name brand conditioner at all.massage oil before shampoo for conditioning.do not comb your hair when washing.b/c no flex while they wet .so more hair breakage.there is another site ,which has more good remedies & right info about hair probs.

while using shampoo try adding it up a bit of water because shampoo today are so strong that it can easily damage our hair. use hot oil once a week.

water only washing is fantastic, it takes a few weeks for your hair to get used to it, but it has been known to help hair growth, cure dandruff, thicken hair, personally i have very thick curly hair, i used to staighten it all the time but since i've been wo washing it hardly frizzes when i leave it and looks great when i plop it (google it if you care what it means, lol) but my hair is also much more shiny and i have no split ends! i would reccomend it to anyone, and if it doesnt help you havent lost anything, plus, it's much better for the environment
good luck, hope you try it xx

Rubbing scalp with fingers after washing hairs with cold water for few minutes improves blood circulation in the scalp.
