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.

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.

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.

Sebum is produced by the sebaceous glands.
