Hair Beauty Secrets From The Professionals | Asian Hair

For most people, grooming their asian hair seems like a daily chore. As such, we tend to stick to more convenient regimes and things that don’t require much of our time. The problem with this is that it sometimes it leave us with many bad hair days or dull and limp hair. Do you want a much healthier, shinier and sexier hair? Then it pays to heed these tips from the professionals and we will find that managing our hair can be so much more easier.

1. Most shampoos in the stores contain chemicals to a certain extent, which can be damaging to asian hair. However, using products made from organic and natural ingredients are less likely to strip your hair of its natural or essential oils and nutrients.

2. We should always go for products that work for us. According to professionals, the proper way of cleaning your hair is achieved by first lathering the shampoo or conditioner in your hands before to applying on hair. Massage onto the hair roots and then downwards the hair.

3. While washing hair on a daily basis will make you feel clean, but in reality, washing your hair daily can be damaging and drying to your hair. We should wash our hair every alternate day or three times per week instead. If you must wash every day, just rinse with water and apply some conditioner at the ends on your ‘non-shampoo’ days.

4.  Asian hair that is permed and dyed needs to have intense conditioning at least once a week. If your hair is extremely damaged, professionals will recommend an intense hair mask (for use from mid-hair down) instead of using your daily conditioner.

5. Many hair dryers are  great at speeding up the hair drying process, but professionals note that they are supposed to be held high above the hair instead of near it or touching it, so as to avoid overheating and damage. Experts recommend removing the hair dyer nozzle and point your dryer in a downward motion when drying your hair. It is also advisable to apply a heat-protectant leave in hair treatment or conditioner on damp hair before you use the hair dryer, this will help to protect your asian hair against the heat.

6. Use your fingers to loosen and comb through your hair as you are drying your hair, until it is about 80 percent dry. After that, use a hair brush to comb through. This will ensure minimal hair breakage and hair loss, as wet hair is more vunerable and easier to break.

7. Many anti-frizz and silicone based hair products will help to keep hair smooth and tamed. Professionals suggest applying them only after drying your hair in order to achieve the best results. Otherwise, it will have a “shrinking” effect and stripping the moisture out of your asian hair.

8. According to professionals, the best hair brushes are those made of natural or boar bristles, as they will help to distribute your scalp’s natural oils evenly on your hair and keep them well oiled.

9. We should always pay attention to our diets as what we eat will affect our hair. According to the professionals, he best vitamin for hair is found in omega-3 fatty acids. So it is good to eat fishes, especially salmon and tuna. We also need to consume nuts and cheese, as they usually contain protein great for the hair.

10. If you had dyed your hair, regular hair color touch-ups can help to patch up the colors on new hair that is grown out and making it look more even. Touching up means only your roots and new grown hair will be worked on and the hair dye will not be left on hair for long, so this also mean less damage.

11. If you just colored your hair, experts suggest refraining from washing your hair for the next 72 hours, so as to protect the hair color from fading and washing out. This will also allow more time for the new hair dye color to get absorped into our asian hair. When you wash your hair, be sure to use only color-safe hair shampoo and conditioner that can help to protect the hair color.

12. One of the quick fixes for frizzy or stray ends is to simply apply a good leave-in hair treatment on our asian hair and then tame them with a hair dryer, if need be.

Hair Oil Can Work Miracles For Your Hair | Asian Hair

Hair oil is one of the essential things that we can include in our daily beauty regime for our asian hair care. Many of us have a busy schedule and using hair oil on our hair is often the last thing on our mind. However, if you want to have healthy and shiny hair, you can try implementing the massaging of hair oil in your hair.

Getting the right kind of hair oil is very important. There are so many hair oils in the market and most will promote the benefits it provides. Before  you make a purchase, be sure to check out the manufacturer and the ingredients that are being used. As a rule of thumb, buying from a more reputable and trusted company will give a peace of mind than an unknown company.

Some of the more popular and effective hair oils that will give a beautiful asian hair are:

Jojoba Oil – this natural ingredient can be used for treating dry hair and helps to give the proper moisture that your hair needs. It can also soften your hair and can be used for detangling your hair before a shampoo.

Olive Oil –  it will help strengthen your hair and provide nourishment for your hair. It can also help to reduce stress on hair due to harsh environmental exposure and helps to build up a healthy hair by improving its elasticity.

Rosemary Herb Oil – this will help to reduce flakes and dandruff problems. Before using, warm up the oil a little and apply it onto your hair by massaging evenly thorough hair and rub it well on the scalp. Wrap hair with a hot towel and leave it on for 30 minutes before rinsing it off.

Coconut Oil – this is an oil that can help to lubricate the asian hair. Coconut oil contains elements like iron, calcium, magnesium and potassium, which are the vitamins your hair will need. It is also very effective for damaged hair and will help to strengthen it.

For best results, always massage your scalp with the hair oil and leave it overnight. If you are afraid of staining your bed sheet, you can wear put a towel on your pillow to absorb the oil. If you don’t want to leave it overnight, you can also use a hot towel to wrap your hair for 30 minutes after applying the hair oil, this will help to speed up the hair oil absorption.

The massaging action on your hair also stimulates blood circulation, which can help your hair to grow faster and healthier. The hair oil residue on your hair will also protect your hair against the hot sun and other harsh environmental elements. Besides, the hair oil will also gives your hair an extra shine.

If you can keep up with this regime for at least thrice a week, you will see that your hair will become more beautiful, shiny and healthy. It does make a lot of difference if you keep doing this regularly as compared to doing it once a month or once every 3 months. Consistency is the key here.

Of course, simply by relying on hair oil is not enough if your diet is in a mess. Eating the right kind of food will also help to make your asian hair healthy. Eat less unhealthy food like canned and processed food, which not only does not protect your hair but will damage it instead. Avoid eating too much instant food like instant noodles, instant soup, instant pasta etc, as many of these food contain msg that will cause hair loss. Snacks like potato chips and crackers should be eaten in moderation as they usually contain too much salt that will cause further harm to our asian hair. We should eat more fresh food, vegetable and protein instead.
