1. Do not wash your hair every day
Shampoo, we wash off not only dirt, styling products, but also sebum, which moisturizes and protects skin and hair. Therefore, due to frequent washing of hair loses its natural shine, it becomes weaker and more susceptible to aggressive external factors.
In addition, the hair quickly get dirty. After all, it turns out that every day we wash off our protective layer and the skin goes into stress. Because of this, the sebum starts to be produced in excess. So we drive ourselves into a vicious circle.

Experts recommend to gradually increase the intervals between treatments. Perfectly shampoo need 2-3 times a week, but in any case, not every day.
2. Use Daily Conditioner
As part of such a product should not be a SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate) and SLES (Sodium Laureth Sulfate). Instead sulfates, through which foam is formed, organic components contained in Daily Conditioner. That is why it cleans more carefully than usual and not so much washes sebum.
True, there is a lack of shampoo. They do not foam. But after a few uses, you get used to it.
Whatever shampoo you choose, remember that it must be applied only at the roots. For the remaining length will be enough amount of an agent which stechot with water.
3. Discard the hot water
Lower the temperature at least during rinsing. Cool water closes the scales, so the hair is not so pushatsya and look healthy and shiny.
And do not forget to use a conditioner or balm-conditioner. These products are also sealed scales. A balm not only smoothes the hair, but also gives them useful components: oils, proteins and minerals.
4. Nourish and moisturize hair masks
Hair masks must be used regularly, about a couple of times a week. But if the ends are dry and split, it is possible to carry out an intensive course of recovery and use a mask often.
How to choose a shop for hair mask
Choose a mask on which the package It will be written "Power", "moisturizing" or "restore". Do not look for products that promise to "irresistible shine" and "incredible shine."
As regards the composition, then there must be as many natural ingredients, primarily oils possible. And the order of the label is very important. If you see the oil, but it should at the very end of the list, it means that the mask of this component is negligible.
Apply the mask in the first place on the tips, then spread over the hair length, departing from the roots of about 10 cm. Rub into the roots of the mask is not: they do not need such wetlands.
Mask from cosmetic shops usually need to keep up to 30 minutes. Therefore, follow the instructions and do not rush to wash it: give a useful component to soak into your hair.
How to make homemade hair masks
A mask can be done independently. Better use of recipes tested mothers and grandmothers. For example, for the smoothness of hair mask is suitable kefir. You will need 1 cup of low-fat kefir slightly warm. It must be rubbed into the roots and spread over the entire length of hair. To enhance the effect, you can wear a hat. Leave the yogurt on the head for 30-40 minutes and then wash it off with lukewarm water. can be washed with shampoo if desired.

With regard to the application, the main thing - do not overdo it. You will need only a couple of drops of oil. It is better to grind the product in your hands and only then distribute the hair.

The use of the latter provedEffect of mineral oil, sunflower oil, and coconut oil on prevention of hair damage scientifically. The study found that the molecules coconut oil so small that they can penetrate into the hair and improve the appearance of hair.

Shampoo for hair growth are most often just a marketing ploy. After using this product, we cleanse the hair. We do not leave the agent on the hair and wash off immediately. Therefore, active substances, even if they are there, just do not have time to act. Plus such shampoos are aimed precisely at the hair roots, the remaining length remains unaddressed.
Activators may also be in the form of peeling, lotion, spray or the mask. If you believe the reviews of stylists and their clients really work warm-up hair mask. Hot mix improves the blood supply to nourish the hair follicles and the hair grow faster.
In shops now quite large variety of masks, they are released and professional brands hair cosmetics. Even reliable products manufacturers need to first test a small area of the head and applied strictly according to instructions.

With warming mask, be extremely careful. In some people, the skin on the head is so delicate and sensitive that it can even harm the mask with a harmless compound. This could eventually lead to the opposite effect: the hair will fall out. Also remember that these masks are applied only on the roots, not to overdry length.
Accelerate hair growth and help homemade mask. First of all - on the basis of mustard powder. You will need:
- 2 tablespoons dry mustard powder;
- 2 tablespoons hot water;
