Hair care - part II.

Is conditioning important? Hair is a marvelous natural fiber, we wash it, apply heat and chemical and generally abuse it. Imagine doing all these to the most expensive outfit and pulling it thorough the most vigorous treatment everyday- years in and years out , of course, you would not do so. Why your hair does not deserve the same delicate care to that expensive dress of yours ? Well it does, that is why correct shampooing and conditioning are important. After all you replace a dress but hair cannot be bought.

Anyone would get confused with the varieties of shampoo and conditioner are available now in this market- which one to choose? So best is to go to a proper beauty parlour and ask your hair dresser who may stock a special range of products which is sold in the salon and you will be given an advise on what to use, when and how to use or else get into a shop and pick it up from shelf but preferably a known brand. 

Shampoo. A modern shampoo is a good cleanser designed to remove every day dirt and grease with out stripping the hair off its precious natural moisture content. Choose mild shampoo that suit your hair. Shampoo mixed with one part of water should be used . Greasy hair should be kept clean otherwise it looks flat soon and looses its bounce. Greasy hair also tends to attract dirt. Whether your hair is normal, dry or oily, keep it clean,shampoo it at least twice a week. A dirty greasy scalp is perfect ground for bacteria, it increases the risk of infection as well as making your hair smell extremely unpleasant.

Choosing the right shampoo is a matter of trial, it is very good to change shampoo often. Always buy a small bottle if you do not like it you have not wasted much money. Colour, perfume and shampoo bottle have nothing to do with the quality of the product inside.

Egg shampoo this is good for falling hair , for oily dirty hair and even for a dirty face. Separate the yolks of 2 to 3 eggs from the whites, add a tsp of the white not very stiff then combine the white and yolks, rinse the hair lightly, massage the egg shampoo into the scalp with your finger tips. Leave for 5 to 10 min rinse with luke warm water and redo with any other shampoo. This is the best home made shampoo for hair and face.
