There are several reasons why hair damage occurs -
• Chemical treatments: Treatments such as permanent waves, straighteners and coloring.
• Mechanical: Improper hair brushes, narrow teeth combs, too tight clips and rubber bands
• Heat: Curling irons, hot rollers & blow dryers
• Improper grooming: Too frequent combing, back combing, tight ponytails and buns
• Environmental: Exposure to the sun, weather and chlorinated water in swimming pool.
• Keep the ends of your hair trimmed frequently (every 4-6 weeks). Generally, damage starts at the ends of hair.
• Be careful while combing, brushing or styling hair, especially when hair is wet, this is when hair is most fragile. We recommend using a gentle towel drying of hair followed by combing with a wide teeth comb when hair is wet. Do not comb your hair vigorously.
• Let hair dry on its own, do not use blow hair dryers to dry your hair as the heat from the dryer damages the hair cuticle.
• Use good conditioners to help protect the hair from daily damage that occurs because of combing or shampooing action.
• Do not go for hair bleaching, coloring, perm, tinting, etc as these chemical processes damage your hair.
• Whenever you go out, wear hat or cap to avoid the effect of ultraviolet rays of sunlight on hair.
• Do not tie your hair too tightly as the pulling hair puts lot of tension on hair fibers because of which they may break over a period of time
Dandruff is a condition marked by excessive flaking
and scaling of the scalp. In the dandruff scalp, the disorderly cell
growth keeps cells from separating easily. Sebum (hair oil) secretions
act to bind the cells into large scales 20 to 40 layers thick. The
cluster of dead cells which make up a dandruff scale are large enough to
be visible, unlike the far greater number of normal cells which are
discarded daily and go unnoticed. Science has not established the exact
cause of dandruff, but we do know that it is a non-contagious,
