Some Dos & Don’ts For Healthy Hair

Choose brushes and combs with widely spaced and smooth tipped bristles and teeth to avoid the risk of splitting hairs and scratching the scalp.

Wash combs and brushes in shampoo or soap at least once a week.

Always rinse your hair thoroughly.

Use a conditioner to smooth the outer surface of the hair, which is roughened by washing.

Apply extra conditioner when using a hairdryer, rollers, or tongs.

Always try a temporary rinse first, before you risk using permanent color.

Go to a professional colorist for permanent dyeing or bleaching.

Don’t over brush your hair, for it may increase the greasiness of oily hair and break the ends of dry hair.

Don’t tangle the hair while washing it.

Don’t give dry hair two applications of shampoo.

Don’t rub hair too vigorously when drying, it may break and tangle the hair.

Don’t have a permanent bleach if all you really need are “highlights”.

Don’t apply a permanent color until you have tested the solution on your skin for 36 hours to check for any adverse reactions.
