It is strongly believed that in today’s time and age, beauty is a necessity. Have a look around the neighbourhood and in your workplace and you’ll find lots of women and men, constantly aiming for their best appearance.
Whether it be to get the dream job that they want, impress their “hunk of a boss”, or simply just to stand-out and feel emotionally well, you’re obviously intelligent enough to know that one of the best ways to do it is by having beautiful hair.
People who are able to achieve and maintain the quality and beauty of their hair are always held in high regard. This is because if you’re not careful, there is always a chance for you to either get any of the common hair problems (e.g. dryness, flyaway hair, split ends), or wind up with the wrong kind of hairstyle, and now have to deal with the problem of un-doing it and starting all over again.
Ask almost any hair care expert, and most will agree that there are just 3 basic ways to beautiful hair:
1. Consistency – in one’s health, which involves proper diet and exercise, and getting a sufficient amount of sleep. The present state of your hair is a reflection on how well you do on these areas. With regards to diet, be aware that one of the causes of hair loss is iron deficiency. This is brought about by unhealthy eating habits without paying attention to foods such as eggs, meat and cereal.
2. Cleanliness – is another key trait to beautiful hair. And we’re not talking about regular shampooing and brushing, which your mother may have already taught you well. This may come as a surprise but regularly cutting one’s hair makes it easier to keep the scalp clean. It doesn’t have to be very short, just a reasonable length will do, but also at a consistent basis.
3. Caution – on the different kinds and number of cosmetic treatments that are applied to your hair (specifically the scalp). Even though it is capable of tolerating a lot of abuse, if you are not careful you can damage it by too much bleaching, perming, dyeing, and even massage. As much as possible, leave those parts to the experts.
Everything else in hair beauty streams out of these 3 Cs. So the next time you are offered advice or recommended a product, remember to check first with the basics.
