Getting the Shiny Hair You've Always Wanted

Women invest countless hours on hair products, salon coloring sessions and blow dryers to give their hair shine and body, yet many are still unimpressed with the condition of their hair. Fortunately, the damage that leaves most women frowning when they look in the mirror can be fixed with a few easy styling secrets used by the pros.

Going natural can be one of the best cures for stressed and damaged hair. Daily brushing can take its toll on your tresses, robbing them of oil and leading to even more breakage. Prevent this by massaging the scalp with your hands to untangle the hair while it is still wet. When the hair is nearly dry, go through it using a brush with natural boar bristles. Natural bristles are less likely to cause breakage, and with consistent use can turn dull flyaway hair into sleek shiny hair.

Using a good shampoo and conditioner will also help keep your hair looking healthy and shiny. Though most people wash their hair everyday, experts insist that hair should be shampooed only a few times a week. If used everyday, most shampoos on the market will strip your hair of its color and moisture. Instead, shampoo your hair only every other day and choose a product that is sodium lauryl sulfate-free. This chemical creates the lathering foam that invigorates the scalp and makes it feel clean, but will also leave your hair dry and dull looking.

While you should only shampoo your hair every other day, it is essential to condition it daily. Distribute the conditioner only to the ends of your hair to prevent the product from weighing it down. Also, don't use different brands together on your hair because conditioners are formulated to balance out the high pH of the shampoos they are marketed with. Conditioners are an easy may to keep damaged hair under control.

The cuticle is the outermost layer of the hair and when damaged, it can take on a shingle-like appearance that can cause hair to look dull and tangle easily. To give further shine, always rinse hair with cold water after showering. Cold water will help keep the cuticle closed, leaving you with smooth shiny hair.

Humidity in the air on a hot day can also have a dulling effect on your hair. Fight frizz by making sure that any dampness from your hair is gone before you leave the house. Professionals recommend using a flat iron on the hair that frames the face to remove any extra moisture and give tresses additional shine.

Whether hair is straight, wavy, curly or kinky, it can look sleek and naturally shiny if its in great condition. Protect your hair by using a natural hair brush that doesn't ravage your tresses. Choosing the right shampoo and conditioner will also help get the most shine from your hair. By following these simple guidelines, you too can be on your may to beautiful and naturally shiny hair.

Hair Care-A Natural Solution for Healthy Looking Hair

There are many benefits to giving your hair and scalp an olive oil treatment. Not only is it a great may to cure an itchy scalp and dandruff, but it can also be used to repair split ends, while giving your hair a silky feel and healthy looking shine. 

Luckily, giving your hair an olive oil treatment is incredibly simple and it can easily be done from the comfort of your own home. All you need to do is massage the olive oil onto your dry hair and scalp, wrap it in a towel or shower cap, and leave it in place for around 30 to 60 minutes. 

Wrapping your olive oil treated hair is important for several reasons. True, it will allow you to move around the house without creating a mess, but more importantly, it will prevent the olive oil from drying, while allowing your natural body heat to warm up the oil for an extra beauty boost. 

After you've left the olive oil in your hair for around 30 to 60 minutes, you will need to wash it out. Simply massage some shampoo onto your hair and scalp and rinse like normal. The first rinse may not be able to remove all of the olive oil, so shampooing additional times may be necessary. 

Depending on your preference, you may wish to shampoo your hair in a sink, rather than in the shower. This will help to prevent you from slipping, as the shower floor can become very slippery as you wash out the olive oil. If you do decide to rinse your hair in the shower, be extra careful not to slip and wash any remaining oil from the shower before its next use.

How to Rid Your Scalp of Dandruff Using Olive Oil

There are many people who suffer from an itchy scalp and dandruff, but are looking for a more natural solution than the typical department stores offer. Traditional dandruff shampoos are filled with harsh chemicals that can sometimes do a scalp more harm than good. Luckily, there are natural dandruff solutions if you know where to look. One of the more popular solutions is to use olive oil.
