10 Principles to Avoid Hair Care Problems

In order to ward off hair care problems you are advised to adhere to the following 10 principles:

1. Do not use any fake methods and keep yourself away from using spurious hair care products. Most of such products create only frustrations.

2. Try to leave the cutting demands to your hair care professional.  Do not attempt it yourself.

3. Get away from excess sun, chlorine and saline water in summer.  Unlimited exposure in the sun can create damage  on  your hair, even if you use the best hair care products.

4. You are advised not to use clarifying hair care products more than once a week. They may lessen the moisture and oil content.

5. Visit a hair care salon only on the basis of a referral from a trusted person. Selecting a salon simply because it is on the advertisements is not advisable.

6. Resist the idea of buying hair color that comes in a box.

7. Do not stick to a style that is outdated, though you feel change might be bad. As time goes on styles change, and with good reason too. Adopt a new style that keeps you in rhythm with the current trends.

8. Never use a clothes iron on your hair.  This practice went out with the 1970s. Straightening irons are widely available to properly style your hair.

9. Never brush your hair while it is wet.  Also, do not pull it.  Putting too much tension will cause the hair to break.  Wear no tight styles beyond a certain time if you do not have ethnic hair.

10. If you do not want a very short hair cut in the near future,  try to avoid lemon juice or spurious hair care products that are made to lighten hair with the sun.
