Relaxed Hair Care Secrets: Get the Most Shiny, Healthy Looking Hair

Ways to improve and ensure your hairs health and vitality.

The most enjoyable of all hair care secrets is one that you can recruit your boyfriend to help you out with: scalp massages. If you only massage your scalp for five minutes a day, every day, you'll see results in the long run. Your hair will grow in thicker, stronger, and it may even induce speedier growth. If you don't have a man-slave to help you with this, the easiest time to check this off your list is in the shower. Simply massage your scalp while shampooing your hair, being sure to use the pads of your fingers, not to use your nails - you don't want a bloody scalp. And remember - the tingling means you're doing it right. The stimulation is improving your scalp's blood supply, and the tingling is an indication of your improving circulation. Not only will you be improving the health of your hair, you'll be eliminating a little stress out of your life every time you do it.

This maintenance tip is the most obvious - get regular trims. You should be having the ends of your hair trimmed every four to six weeks to get rid of the damaged, split ends that develop over time due to regular brushing, rubber bands, etc. Although it seems silly to cut your hair when you're trying to make it grow longer, you'll end up hitting a brick wall once your split ends have settled in and it won't grow evenly and at the rate you'd like it to anyway. So do yourself a favor: get your hair cut every once and a while. Your hair will thank you and you'll notice the difference.

One tip that seems the opposite of what you've been told your whole life is to wear your hair up more. Surprisingly, the more you wear your hair down, the more often it's exposed to environmental damage and likely to become dried out from the air. Additionally, wind will tangle your hair and when you try to comb out the knots, you'll end up damaging your hair more. There are plenty of cute and sexy ways to wear your hair up and back without looking like a librarian. Try a few out, and maybe you'll even find a new look. Plus, who's going to complain that their hair isn't in their face?

Taking vitamins is another way to improve your hairs condition and give it the nourishment it needs to relax. Vitamin B, folic acid, iron, amino acids and flax seed oil are all fantastic for your hair. These will help your hair gain strength and vitality, and a lot of the time help prevent fly aways as well. No static is always a good thing!

Everyone is different, and so is their hair. Some people get headaches from wearing their hair up too often (which typically means it's just too tight, anyway), while others have such heavy hair they get headaches from wearing it down! Some women find conditioner gives their hair the silky smooth, resilient texture they've been looking for, while others find it simply makes their hair greasy and flat. These variations are exactly why there are so many different options in hair care: different kinds of brushes, vitamins, straighteners, blow dryers, shampoos, conditioners - the list goes on and on. Try a few different things, see what works for you and then make a regimen out of it. You and your hair will love the difference - and the compliments that come with it.
