Having a hair cut can change your look positively and sometimes you will feel better after having a new asian hair cut or color. Besides a new hair cut or color, you will also need to take proper care for your hair to prevent it from needless damage. Take advantage of the tips below on proper hair care.
1. Natural sebum hair oil
One of the key elements to having shiny, healthy asian hair is to allow the natural oils in the scalp to lubricate it naturally. The hair closest to the scalp benefit from natural sebum oils the most while the hair further away benefit less. Thus, long hair can become dry and brittle from a lack of these natural sebum oils.
2. Shampooing your hair
While shampoos perform a simple job of removing excess oils, pollution and styling product residue that build up on the hair. All of your hair needs is gentle cleansing on the top two or three inches of your asian hair from your hair roots, which is most concentrated with natural hair sebum oil. Try to prevent intense washing of your hair (such as washing your hair 2 or more times a day), as this will reduce the amount of natural hair sebum oil on your hair, which can be good for your hair with the right oil balance. Intense washing will strip the natural hair sebum oils.
3. Conditioning your hair
Conditioning on the other hand should be used more on the hair ends instead of the top parts of your hair. Conditioning is an important step to replace needed lost natural hair oils and it will also protect your asian hair against harsh styling tools such as blow dryers and irons.
4. Hair style and cut
Besides relying on natural hair sebum oil, your hair will look good when you choose a style that requires the least maintenance, such as using of stying items like hair dyers, flat irons, hair gel etc. Choosing a style that suits the texture of your hair will also eliminate the need for harsh styling tools.
5. Blow-drying of hair
When blow drying your hair, keep the blow dryer at least six inches faway rom your hair to prevent excessive damage to your asian hair from the heat. The right way to blow drying is to blow in the direction of the shaft (down the length of hair) to prevent hair damage.
6. Chemcial hair treatment
Anytime you use are going to use chemicals on your hair (such as applying hair due), you should make sure your hair is in a healthy condition before going for it. Over-doing of chemical treatment on hair can damage your asian hair beyond repair and might even affect the results of the chemical treatment.
7. Split ends
Your asian hair will look healthier and shinier when you remove dry split ends. Going for a hair trim every 6 to 8 weeks will help to keep split ends at bay.
