Few Hair Care Procedures for Women
Drink plenty of water for your hair if you want shiny and supple hair. Keep your hairs away from sun and don’t do too much blow-drying. Take a protein-rich diet, massage your scalp regularly and apply natural hair conditioners for soft and supple hair.

Massaging Your Scalp
A good scalp massage stimulates blood circulation in the roots. It takes just 2 to 3 minutes to get a scalp massage.

A proper scalp massage consists of the following steps.

Brushing/Combing Your Hair

* Use a brush made of animal bristles having naturally rounded tips.
* The bristles of your brush must be evenly spaced, embedded in rubber, and attached to a sturdy handle. Rubber cuts down on the static electricity that is built up at the time of brushing.
* Don’t brush through a tangle. Use some cream to loosen the tangle and then brush.
* Apply shampoo in warm water, and brush gently after each bath.
* Give yourself a brush massage once a week.

Brush with firm, regular stokes from scalp to the chin for 10 minutes. Hold your hair in one hand and brush the ends below your chin. Don’t brush all the way through long hair in one stroke, it will uproot a few hairs from the root.

Combing Your Hair

* Use a comb with thin and widely spaced teeth.
* The comb should be sturdy enough not to bend when you run it through your hair.
* Don’t pull the comb through a tangle.
* Wash the comb every time you wash your hair. Though use of hair care tools for massaging, brushing and combing is same, you need to take specific hair care products and undergo specific procedures as per your hair type. Let’s discuss one by one.

Oily Hair
Oily hair is a gift. Generally oily hair is very strong and healthy. However, it can become stringy and limp, and is prone to dandruff.

* Brush your hair regularly and massage your scalp. It will promote blood circulation in the scalp.
* Use a cleansing-only shampoo that contains citric acid / lemon juice or malic acid.
* If you have dandruff, use a shampoo with sulfur.
* Use conditioners with hydrolyzed proteins or silicones.
* Add juice of 1 lemon in a cup of warm water and apply after shampooing. After a few minutes rinse out the lemon juice with cold water. It will make your hair shiny.
* Use mousse to add volume to your hair.
* Dry your hair naturally.
* Don’t use hair spray.

Dry Hair
Dry hair occurs when your scalp produces oils less than the amount required to
moisturize the shaft. This condition arises if you have few oil glands. Dry hair is brittle.

* Clean and soften your hair with an emollient shampoo.
* If you have dandruff, use a shampoo with coal tar.
* Dry your hair naturally.
* If the hair ends are extra dry, use a conditioner with a lot of protein.
* Use alcohol free hair styling products.
* Apply a little facial moisturizer to your hair and brush gently to distribute the moisturizer.
* Use only professional hair care products and/or home remedies for hair.

Coarse Hair
Coarse hair is a type of hair that is very dull and hard to style. Curly hair falls in this category.

* Use alkaline hair care products to soften the shaft.
* Use a shampoo without proteins.
* Wash your hair with warm water.
* Don’t use conditioners, but use a simple cream rinse with hot water.
* Rinse your hair with warm water at least for a minute.
* Don’t rub, use a towel and pat your hair gently to dry your hair.
* Use a styling product.
* After drying the hair, apply a little facial moisturizer and brush your hair to distribute the moisturizer.

Conditioning Treatment is to revitalize and replenish lost protein and other vital nutrients in damaged hair. Since there are more people with damaged hair nowadays, it is necessary to apply conditioning treatment every time you shampoo your hair. The amount of conditioner applied varies, but roughly 3cc for a medium length hair and 5cc for a long hair.

In addition, any rash on the skin such as eczema, can resolve a dark character. Scratches, burns, abrasions, and to heal all the dark areas of skin. So as you can see, there are plenty of reasons for brown spots.
