From Hair Styling to Avoiding Hair Loss
Hair Care Routine which is a must for Beautiful hair.
Brush or comb hair thoroughly to loosen dirt and dead skin cells from the head. Wet the hair well so that the underneath layers as well as the top are well saturated with water.
Pour about 1 tsp of shampoo in a little water to get a diluted solution and massage this diluted shampoo gently into the roots with your fingertips, covering the whole of the head.
With the flat surface of your hand work that shampoo into the bulk of the hair over the top layers.
Rinse thoroughly with water until the shampoo has been completely washed off.
Repeat the same procedure if necessary.
Shampoo the hair as directed above as many times as desired and wash thoroughly.
Pour approx. 2-2 1/2 tsps of conditioner in your hair all over.
Leave on far about 5 minutes and rinse off thoroughly until the conditioner has been completely washed off.
Note that wet hair loses upto 20 percent of its elasticity and with it, much of its natural resilience. So treat it as gently as you possibly can after washing :
Squeeze out excess water, wrap hair loosely in a clean towel, turban-fashion and press firmly against the head. Do not rub vigorously.
Once the hair is no longer soaking wet, the best thing you can do is to leave it to dry naturally.
When using a blow dryer, capitalize on the control, minimize on the damage : (a) do not start drying until the hair is three quarters dry ; (b) do not hold the dryer over one area of the head for too long ; (c) do not allow the scalp to become hot; (d) use a brush gently to persuade the hair into the style you want; and (e) do not continue to blow dry on to hair that is already dry.
Always brush hair when it is dry because brushing wet hair cause the ends to split.
Tilt your head forward while brushing as this increases the blood supply to the head and stimulates the hair.
Never use a sharp teethed brush or it may tear the hair apart.
Fine hair needs a softer brush while thick long hair needs a bigger brush with stiff bristles.
For combing wet hair, use a comb in which the teeth are widely spaced.
The best way to comb out tangles hair (knots) is to start at the ends and work upwards gradually.

Can Too Little Protein Cause Hair Loss?
Hair usually grows about half an inch per month, although this slows as you age. Each hair remains on your head for two to six years, and during most of this time is continually growing.
But many factors can disrupt this cycle. The result can be that your hair falls out early or isnt replaced.
A new discovery has been made in finding out what actually causes hair loss, namely: the hardening of collagen. Persons who do not suffer from hair loss have supple collagen and persons who begin showing signs of hair loss have hardened collagen. Collagen hardening interferes with the healthy functioning of the hair roots. The vital exchange process of the hair follicle cycle is disrupted and the hair becomes suffocated.
Diet: Too little protein in your diet can lead to hair shedding. So can too little iron. Bottom line: Too strenuous dieting can result in hair loss! If you want to lose weight, do it the sensible way, especially if you have a hair thinning/loss problem to begin with.
Childbirth: Some women lose large amounts of hair within two to three months after delivery.
One great tip is after washing your hair, dry it in whatever manner you normally do. Then turn your head upside down, give your head a vigorous shake, and once back in a standing position, either place your hair using your fingers, rather than a brush or comb. You can also use a hair pick to style your hair. The upside down, shaking, also gives a great deal of fullness to otherwise flat looking thin hair. Youd be amazed at how creative you can be with your fingers without pulling at the root of the hair!
To protect hair, the best practice is to shampoo only when hair is dirty. Because fine hair gets dirty faster, people with fine-textured hair need to shampoo more frequently even though fine hair breaks more easily.
For that reason, fine-textured hair benefits from a good shampoo and volume-building conditioner
