Hair is an important aspect of our personality. It is important to have healthy hair so that we can have the look that we always want. Hair loss is a common dilemma all over the world. Two out of three people are going bald when they reach the age of 45 while 35% of women suffer hair loss between the ages of 39 to 50. We loose an average 50-100 hairs everyday but these are quickly replaced. However, as we grow older, hair growth slows down. This becomes apparent when 24% of your scalp hair is gone.

There are various factors that contributes to hair loss. These are stress, lack of sleep, heredity, the use of chemicals on hair, and less intake of essential hair. Hair loss is primarily due to a chemical called DHT or Dihydro testosterone and is basically composed of testosterone and androgen receptors and dust particles we get from the environment. Hairs are reduced in size due to exposure to this compound and eventually causes the hair to fall out. Therefore use shampoos that contain anti hair loss ingredients because they block the production of DHT, minimizing the chances that you will have a shiny head as you age.

In taking care of your hair you need to know what type you have and then plan to maintain it. There are different types of hairs for different people. There are straight, curly and frizzy.

Most people think having straight hair is easy well in fact it needs the care and attention like other types of hair. This type is prone to breakage and split ends so be careful when you handle your hair. Shampoo your hair every other day to prevent dryness and use a conditioner everyday to lock in moisture. The secret to a fabulous straight hair is the conditioner you use like Creamsilk Standout Straight conditioner works wonders, it brings out the best quality for this type of hair with the natural flow.

Curly hair for kids looks adorable but as they grow older the softness and manageability of their hair is not the same. For teenagers it is a nightmare. If you have curly hair, you know that there is no point in fighting it! Go with the curl, and learn how to make your naturally curly hair beautiful! One of the biggest mistakes that those with naturally curly hair make is not using the right products. You need to choose conditioners and shampoos that are specially formulated for your type of hair. Regular conditioners will weigh down the hair, creating flat, lifeless curls. Regular shampoos often do not contain enough moisture to bring curls to life. There are a variety of curly hair products on the market today, and those with curly hair must use shampoo and conditioner designed for their type like All Dove Shampoos and Conditioners bring just the right amount of our unique Weightless Moisturizers® to the center of each hair strand, without weighing it down.

The same is true for moose, gel, or hair spray. Normal hair styling products will weigh down the curls. This gives your hair a crunchy, fake look. Choose products that will control your curl, while letting your hair breathe and look alive like Kiehl’s. This outstanding leave-in hair conditioner and grooming aid is created especially for thick, frizzy, dry, or damaged hair that tends to be difficult to manage and tangled. When combing it, never comb it when it is dry, this will cause breakage. Avoid also, using combs or brushes that are narrow toothed. Instead, use a pick or a comb with wide teeth to brush through your curly hair.

Introduction

Hair that develops a lank, flat, stringy or oily appearance is often referred to by hairdressers and hair consumers as “greasy” hair. This type of hair is hard to control, clumps together easily and does not hold a style well.

Where does greasy hair originate from? Regardless of how or why it happens, greasy hair is directly related to the overproduction of sebum, a waxy type of substance naturally occurring in the body which is designed to keep hair supple, soft and waterproof. Sebum is produced by the sebaceous glands.

Wanting to change your look? Why not try short hair?

A lot of people prefer the usual long flowing hair for obvious reasons – long hair symbolizes femininity, elegance and beauty. However, these do not mean that women who opt for shorter hair are less feminine or are less attractive. On the contrary, a recent study shows that more men find women with short hair sexier due to that certain aura of confidence and sexiness they exude. Short hair has its advantages as well: it’s easy to manage, it makes you look younger and it makes your hair look healthier since damaged, dull ends are cut off. Also, a well-cut short hair with funky edges will highlight your facial features, therefore, emphasizing your own individual femininity.

Hair Loss Products of No Use 

Filed under: Information on Wednesday, September 3rd, 2014 by Hannah | No Comments

Products touting their ability to help thicken your hair by giving it more body are one thing, but those that boast of their hair loss fighting capabilities are another.

If you have been sucked into trying out shampoos, conditioners, lotions, and other creams that are supposed to stop hair loss or even make your hair grow back, then you have just been conned. This is according to Akaki Tsilosani, Director of Clinic Talizi, who also said that “These products do not hurt the hair but do not cure it either. It is also impossible to accelerate hair growth, so do not let the producers of different hair care products fool you. This is the same as a patient trying to cure cancer by taking vitamins instead of undergoing chemotherapy.”

So the next time you see an ad for a hair loss product or worse, a doctor recommends you one, better be wary. And maybe you can suggest to that doctor that they think about leaving their medical job and start a career in sales instead.
