The 2 beautiful Taiwanese celebrities Barbie Hsu and Lin Chi Ling are not only famous for their good complexions, but also for their silky shiny hair. Here, they are going to disclose their closely guarded secrets to having gorgeous asian hair like theirs.
Lin Chi Ling believes that beauty radiates from the head (and hair..)
Lin Chi Ling believes it is crucial to pamper your hair as much as your skin and it needs equal protection against the sun too. She had observed that most people tend to only remember their beauty regimes for skincare when they are outdoors during summer. Yet, they have neglected to ensure equal protection for their hair against the harmful sun rays, UV light and the adverse effects of sea water. Hence, she would always don a stylish hat every time she’s outdoors, and also apply moisturizer to her hair. In short, you have to adore your hair as much as your skin.
Be persistent in having a regular hair care regime
Lin Chi Ling has to dye her long hair or change her hairstyle frequently due to work, both of which are extremely harmful to the hair follicles.
She added: “I no longer dye my hair to a shade that is too light in contrast to my original hair colour. Because by doing so, the black pigment in my hair is bleached, and after the hairstyling my hair becomes lifeless; I would need to do proper hair care everyday for a week to restore some of the moisture lost from my hair. Therefore, I would advise ladies with long asian hair to dye to a shade that is within 6 to 7 degrees of your original hair pigment for a more natural and radiant hair colour.”
She also mentioned that she would adhere to a rigorous hair care regime regardless of how late or how weary she is.
Give your hair a deep cleansing
Lin Chi Ling shared: “A lot of people think that washing their hair every day will do damage to their hair, but I beg to differ. If I do not wash my hair for one day, I would feel extremely ill at ease. The first thing that I would do when I wake up is to drink a cup of plain water before washing my hair. I also use deep cleansing hair products to ‘spring clean’ my hair on a weekly basis too. Well, some question the necessity of deep cleaning the hair if one washes his/her hair religiously every day. Actually, many do not know that Fluorescer is present in the daily hair wash that we use. Although Fluorescer helps to keep our hair smooth and manageable, it will also form a residual layer on the surface of our hair. Over time, this causes damage to our hair follicles, hence the need for an all natural deep hair cleansing regime weekly to eradicate these toxic particles. Our asian hair can only absorb nutrients better when the follicles are able to breathe freely.”
Barbie Hsu’s secrets to her luscious hair: Keep your hair from things that they should avoid
Barbie revealed that she has high expectations for her hair and would keep her hair away from things that it should avoid. For instance, flicking her hair to the front before sitting down on a seat to ensure that it will not be mercilessly sandwiched between the seat and the back of her shoulders!
No ponytail—it is the root to severe hair loss on the hairline and front part of hair
Barbie do not really wear a ponytail even at home, as she believes it can cause hair loss on the front portion of hair. Wearing a hair band is another big no-no.
Distribute the weight of hair in a balance manner by letting it hang down on both sides equally
Whenever Barbie is at home, she will definitely let her hair down on both sides of her chest, making sure to separate them equally. By doing so, the weight of her asian hair is balanced and this will minimize the risk of hair loss from unequal weight distribution.
