While this blog is dedicated to finding better ways to protect your hair, we know first hand how irritating unwanted hair can be. Sure, we’ll do everything we can to protect our crowning glory, but when it comes to the hair on our armpits, legs, face, and bikini area we’d be more than happy to see the last of it. After all, shaving and plucking out all of that hair can feel like a part-time job with the rate at which they grow back.
If you’re tired of dealing with unwanted hair, you should realize that you have options aside from shaving and plucking. Waxing is a good option, although the hair will still grow back. Still, if you have your hair waxed at a salon, the whole process does not have to be as tedious as shaving; besides your hair will grow back a bit slower and with a finer texture. You can also opt for permanent hair removal which can be done in salons. The process takes several visits though, with the number of visits depending on the type of your hair.
When it comes to taking a shower, we’ve said before that the important part is the rinse. This is because hair products leave harmful residue on your hair that is one of the causes of dandruff. So what this means is that while your hair may smell good for the first few hours, you end up with a smellier scalp once you get sweaty and so making it necessary to wash you hair again. But what happens if you don’t use any shampoo at all?
While there is no large study on the effects of not using shampoo, there are people who actually shower without using any shampoo. Obviously, this is not a tack most people would take with their hair care regimen, but it does bear mentioning since those who have tried it seem generally pleased with the results. Some even go as far as saying that their hair actually feels softer after some time.
Note that Niall Doherty, one of those who has opted to stick to a shampooless routine was brave enough to quit his job and not even take on a part-time job to pursue his passion of traveling. So I guess you do have to be a rare breed to do ditch shampoo altogether. I for one would not dare to do away with shampoo and conditioner, but then that’s why we have different strokes for different folks right?
As we all know hair is known as our crowning glory and having the right cut, texture, color and the list goes on, is next to perfection. This is a fact for a lot of women and even for men. There are a wide variety of hair styles and hair treatments that anyone can choose from, and may vary depending on the preference. To be a hair expert you do not need to go to a Thai school or go to any Thai classes just know hair secrets. You simply have to know the basic things to understand how your hairs work. A healthy lifestyle is basically the answer to have a beautiful hair. Getting enough sleep, exercise and eating the right food is the key. Also, avoiding vices such as smoking, drinking and unnecessary drugs is the solution for a great hair. Other things to consider are the hair products that have alcohol or other hair damaging ingredients. This causes dryness to hair. The use of excessive heat can also damage your hair. Avoid using direct heat on hair regularly. Using a towel to dry hair beforehand is better than drying hair with a blow dry the whole time.
Doing all you can to supplement your budget such as getting a part-time job is an admirable thing to do. However, when it comes to joining product trials, whether you paid for it or you just get free hair products, you need to exercise extra caution because the amount you make or save now can be a lot less than what you will need to shell out in the future as a result of using the trial product.
Remember that when signing up for hair trial products you will be among the first human beings to ever try them. This means that many of the products’ side effects and their severity are still unknown. Side effects may vary from something as trivial yet irritating as dandruff to something more severe like hair loss. Even worse, it can lead to serious health problems in the long run skin cancer or some other unexpected issue. So before trying anything, at least find out what ingredients are included in the product and join the trial only after researching on the safety of those ingredients.

Keeping your hair and scalp clean is one of simplest ways to protect your hair. This, of course, means showering regularly.
The problem with taking a shower frequently enough to make it seem like hair care is you part-time job is that if you do not do it properly, you still end up with dandruff. The reason for this is that hair products leave residue on your scalp; residue that builds up in time and results in dandruff. The funny thing though, is that people who do not realize this compound the problem by using even more shampoo and conditioner to help “clean” their hair!
So next time you take a shower, keep in mind that moderation is very important. Just a little shampoo is enough. You don’t need too much foam to get the grime out. Then make sure you rinse your hair and your scalp really thoroughly, because it is the water that will really make it clean – clean from dirt, sweat, and hair product residue!
