Normal – A basic regime will work, and for the best hair stay out of the sun, avoid harsh chemicals, and all of those hot styling tools that we can’t live without. Try on occasion to let your hair dry naturally and it will thank you for it.
Dry – Can be the result of poor nutrition, chemical treatments, over-exposure to the sun. Try leave in conditioners, these are designed to help retain moisture and add shine. You can also use a hydrating hair mask or treatment once a week. Hair masks have superior conditioning properties above and beyond normal conditioners.
Greasy – Can be the result of harsh hair care products and stress. Coloring can be beneficial as the process changes the porousness of the hair and drinks up the oil. Experts say the trick is to add oil as your scalp will correct the imbalance – massage 10 drops of jojoba oil into your scalp, leave in for 15 minutes and follow with good shampoo.
Flat brushes and round brushes are the best styling tools. Vent brushes allow the air to circulate faster and will help you if you’re short on time in the drying department.
Hair issues can be attributed to vitamin and mineral deficiencies. Lack of B vitamins can contribute to dandruff and balding, and the missing iron in your diet can make your hair dull and brittle.

Never wash your hair in bath water
If your brushes or combs have broken teeth or bristles, you should replace them as prolonged use will tear your hair shaft
Over-brushing can tear and weaken the hair shaft
Massage your scalp in the shower to help boost circulation, improve hair health, and reduce stress
Use cold water to rinse your hair, this will close the cuticles, ensuring all over hair shine
Never towel dry as it removes the moisture and destroys the elasticity of your hair. Gently squeeze out excess water with your fingertips and then blot the hair with a towel.
Wet hair is susceptible to damage, so instead of using a brush – always use a wide toothed comb to work through tangles. If you have fine hair and the tangles are treacherous, use any detangler spray prior to combing out.
If your hair is dull and lifeless, try changing your shampoo and conditioner. Prolonged use of the same products can cause a residue build up on the hair shaft
