31 Days of Femininity: Taking Care of Your Hair!
A women's hair is an important part of her. I'm sure many of us can identify with Jo from Little Women, "Oh Jo, you cut your hair! It's your one true beauty!" : )
At any rate, we all want to take care of our hair and make it look nice. Whether you have your hair styled, you wear it down each day, or pulled up in a handy flexi clip, you want it to look healthy.
With winter coming on, I wanted to pass along a tip that helps to keep my hair looking healthier during the winter. I have thick hair, and it seems every winter I struggle with my scalp getting a bit dry. Little flakes will show up on my hairif I'm not careful. And no, I'm not going to call it dandruff because that always grosses me out. I have problems with dry skin, not dandruff, Ok? (Alright, you can call it whatever you want, for me I'll live in denial! I don't want to face the thought that it could be dandruff. Yuck.) : )
Anyway....here is what I do to battle dry flakes in my hair! Before I take a shower, I spend a few minutes vigorously massaging my scalp. Whether you have a problem with dry skin or not, this is very good to do for your hair. It promotes healthy new hair growth, and who doesn't want that? I went to an upscale salon once (gift card!) and the stylist put oil in my hair, and massaged my head for several minutes before washing my hair. I've even heard you can put olive oil in your hair, wrap it up in a towel for thirty minutes, and then wash your hair, and that can help a dry scalp.
After you have loosened all the dry flakes, take a shower and wash them all out! Be careful not to use lots of shampoo, as that can contribute to a flaking scalp. Also, they say hot showers are not good for your scalp. I have to confess this is something I can't seem to give up-this mama loves to take a nice long hot shower for a short break!
And finally, here is a tutorial on how to blow dry your hair that I found very helpful. Just make sure you have a good round brush before you try this. I learned the hard way that my brush was junk, and had hair tangled up really good in it. For a moment I had a fleeting thought of needing scissors to cut the front of my hair off, but I managed to finally get the hair out of the brush. I just bought a new one at Walmart yesterday, as the other brush went in the trash. :)
