Tips For Your Hair Care

1. Get rid off  Dandruff And Falling Hair

Use a good and reliable hair tonic every day.  Shampoo your hair every alternative day. Massage your hair with little hair oil before shampooing. Do not apply much pressure. Shampoo your hair   one hour after massaging. Always keep your hair clean. Hair fall reduces once dandruff vanishes. Do not worry if few hair fall everyday as every hair has a life span.

2. Highlighting 

 Many of us might have the idea that hair dye, hair coloring and hair highlighting are all same. But actually its not the truth. Now we will focus on hair highlighting here since this is the latest trend. A few strands of hair are selected and only these are coloured. While doing so the skin tone and the original hair color of the person in question is taken into consideration so that the highlighted strands of hair meld beautifully and comfortably with the natural hair colour. Highlighting can be of three types:permanent, semi permanent and temporary. For permanent highlighting chemical substance called "developer" is mixed with the hair color which makes the color permanent. Semi permanent highlighting is just a coating and therefore is  not long lasting. For temporary highlighting "Mehendi" is used.Now we come to the method of highlighting. This again can be done in two ways:

1) 4-5 strands of hair are placed in an aluminum foil, next the hair color is applied, and then the foil is gently folded. After about half an hour the foils are unfolded and the hair is washed with a nourishing shampoo thoroughly.

2) Strands of hair are placed in small caps (after applying color) and after half an hour the caps are taken off and the hair is rinsed thoroughly to make sure that there is no residue as this might cause allergies.

Highlighting is after all a chemical process and in absence of proper aftercare there can be damaging results in future. To avoid that, the hair should be well conditioned and well nourished.
