Healthy Beautiful Hair

Updated on June 29, 2012

Hair can make a person. Sometimes it is the easiest thing to change about yourself in order to make a statement. Taking care of it though may not be so easy sometimes. If your hair looks great, so does your whole face and if it doesn't, you feel unkept and gives you low self esteem all around.

Here are a few tip and tricks to having healthy beautiful hair.

Different Hair Types

Oily Hair- Seperates and sometimes looks darker at the roots. Feels heavy and looks limp when dirty.

  • Never wash your hair in hot water, only warma nd rinse in cool water. This closes the pores in your scalp and makes hair shinier and cleaner.
  • Lather two or three times if needed.
  • Use shampoo for oily hair--thats a no brainer.
  • Use conditioner from your ear level down only.

Dry Hair- Usually has split ends. Not very shiny. If very damages, can look like straw.

  • Use shampoo for dry or damaged hair.
  • Use conditioner for tangles.
  • Avoid over exposure to sun, wind and blow dryers.
  • Trim split ends every 6-8 weeks.

Flat Hair- Thin and limp. Usually has a fly away look and is baby fine.

  • Use a protein conditioner.
  • Keep ends trimmed evenly. The blunter the cut, the thicker the hair will look.
  • Lean over with head upside down if blowdrying. This makes hair appear fuller.

Curley Hair- Thick and wiry. Unruley or out of control. Often appears sry and bushy.

  • Shampoo once or twice a week.

      Thank you for this informative hub! I think that my hair is both oily and dry if that's possible? It gets extremely oily at the roots and the other half of my hair can be so dry it's like straw! I appreciate all of the useful tips here. Voting up!
