Proper Natural Hair Care
Getting old is something we all do if we are living well. If your only issue when you get older is graying hair you are in pretty good shape. There are things you can do to keep your hair colored and looking young. You can dye it brunette or blond but just beware that both can get brassy and you may need to use a purple shampoo. The main objective is hair health and a great way to achieve that is by proper hair care. This means washing your hair the recommended amount and also using natural hair care products for dry hair or oily hair or whatever kind of hair you have.
Here is some info that you may find interesting if you have naturally oily hair. You have to ask yourself these questions. Are you washing your hair more than 3 times a week? If so you can be doing your hair more harm than good. Although after using a good natural shampoo your hair feels soft and clean what is happening in your body is a bit more sinister. You see, when you over wash your hair you strip the scalp of its natural oils called sebum. Your body produces sebum to protect the skin and keep it moisturized. When you use oily hair shampoo too often you put your body in panic mode and it may over-produce the sebum oil to make up for the lack of oil. This creates a vicious cycle where you will keep experiencing oily hair and thinking it is a problem but really it is just your body trying to regulate itself. So i like to tell people with oily hair that they should find a great organic and natural shampoo conditioner combo and wash your hair no more than 3 times a week. This will ensure that your sebum levels stay normal and that you will not encounter oily hair. Some great choices for oily hair are essential oils like argan oil and tea tree oil. You can find these both on MapleHolistics.com. They both can help to keep your hair moisturized without being too oily.
On the topic of essential oils like tea tree oil if you suffer from dry scalp and thus dandruff tea tree is a great natural cure to unsightly and itchy dandruff. Tea tree oil has its origins in Australia and only until recently has been shown to be anti-fungal and anti-bacterial. Both of these qualities allow it to be a very effective dandruff remover. You can use it directly on the scalp or in shampoo. It is a strong oil so it is recommended that if you do use it in its pure form you should dilute it with water. I like using it with a shampoo. It does the trick and is easy on my skin. You only need a couple of drops of this magical oil to get the job done and the oil itself is fairly cheap. The bottom line is that proper hair care is as easy as just changing how you wash your hair and what you use in your hair.
