Proper way to comb wet hair (straight or curly) ( I will bring my mannequin head I used in beauty school to demonstrate)- After shampooing and conditioning you want to make sure the hair is damp. Next take a wide toothed comb and section your hair horizontally starting from the bottom up. This will keep your hair from being pulled out and will make it a lot less painful.
Instead of microfiber towels use this- Now we have plenty of these around the house am I right? I am talking about t-shirts. Did you know that using microfiber towels can actually cause hair breakage and hair loss. SO next time you get out of the shower have a cotton fiber t-shirt sitting next to you and use that to wrap your hair.
Best way to shampoo and condition hair (especially if it is color treated)- When shampooing your hair don’t use more than a nickel size amount and only focus on your scalp. Do not ball your hair at the top of your head. Use your fingertips to massage your scalp and work into a lather. rinse hair and let shampoo run down the ends of your hair. Make sure you use a shampoo with low pH balance such as the ones found in your salon. Next to condition only use a nickel size and this time focus on the ends of your hair. RInse with cool water to help lock in moisture and also to help lock in color. If your hair is color treated especially redheads wash hair 2-3 times a week.
At home remedy for red heads- Aside from using shampoo and conditioner that is made specifically for color treated hair, a great at home remedy to help maintain redheads is rinsing your hair with cranberry juice. YES cranberry juice. We have all heard from our parents be careful cranberry juice stains. Its the same idea for your hair. After shampooing and conditioning your hair take a bottle of cranberry juice turn your head upside down in the shower and pour the cranberry juice on your hair and allow the water to run clear before flipping your head back over (tip: do this BEFORE you shave your legs)
Simple nutrient might be all your hair needs to look full and healthy
While we talk a lot about skin, even healthy, young-looking skin won’t disguise your true age if your hair is a dead give-away. Thinning hair and even baldness often seem like inevitable parts of aging. But they don’t have to be. You can keep your hair as full, shiny, and youthful as your skin. A simple molecule might be just what you need.
I’ve told you in the past about nitric oxide. It is a signaling molecule. It contributes to circulation, which is key in keeping your hair and skin looking young. Since the skin is the body’s largest organ, it’s essential that blood be able to reach it easily. Nitric oxide helps your arteries relax, which improves circulation. And good circulation means that your skin — including your scalp and hair follicles — is getting the nutrients and oxygen it needs. Without these, it can’t continue to grow healthy hair, which eventually leads to thinning hair and baldness.
Your skin actually makes nitric oxide within the dermis, your second layer of skin. As your cells produce nitric oxide, the newly produced nitric oxide begins to regulate the activity of your hair follicles. Since nitric oxide is a signaling molecule, it helps the follicles know that they need to grow hair.
Your body produces nitric oxide on its own. But as you age, the levels it produces drop significantly. And that may be what contributes to the loss of healthy hair as you grow older. Fortunately, you can supplement what your body produces naturally. Adding a nitric oxide supplement, such as CircO2, to your routine will definitely help improve your circulation. And while no large clinical studies have been done to prove that supplemental nitric oxide can definitely reduce hair thinning as you age, many people have reported positive results.
So don’t let your hair detract from your youthful appearance. Make sure you are giving it what it needs to be
able to continue growing thick, strong, healthy hair that may not reflect your age but definitely reflects how you feel.
One final note: You may be taking hair nutrients such as biotin, omega 3 oils, zinc, vitamin D, etc. and your hair still is not where you want it to be. Sometimes simply adding the additional nitric oxide for a couple of months gets things jump-started because the additional nitric oxide enhances the utilization and absorption of your nutrients.
To your health, naturally,
