I’m not very good with my hair; I don’t think I’ve taken very good care of it all these years. In fact, I have a few bad hair habits and I’ll talk about these today. Maybe you can teach me something about breaking them or maybe you can learn something from them. Otherwise, well, take it as some silly hair musings then. (^__^)
It seems that some of the Chinese magazines are loaded full of beauty tips. No wonder they are so popular! Anyway, I was reading one from Hong Kong while at a hair salon recently and was quite pleased to find many useful and interesting hair care tips. Good thing I can read Chinese characters quite well and so I am able to understand most of the tips. Here, I’ll share five simple tips that I’ve found to be very relevant.
Since discovering that oily shampoo can make my hair oilier, I went on a hunt for a naturally formulated shampoo for normal hair. I decided to give BOD Premium Blend Shampoo a try since I like their BOD White Tea Cleansing Gel and this shampoo is described to be of salon quality and suitable for all hair types. Like the BOD cleanser, this shampoo is made with certified organic ingredients, essential oils and herbal extracts ; it is free of Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS), Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES), propylene glycol and parabens.
Besides the rosemary hair rinse that I’ve been using quite frequently, I’ve also been using the Phyto Phytopolleine Universal Elixir Scalp Stimulant about twice a week for about a month now. In fact, I’ve just finished the bottle I purchased during a sale at Watsons and am going to wait till the next sale to get my next bottle. So yes, I like this because I think it’s helping to purifying my scalp and possibly strengthening my hair.
I’ve been spending more time on hair care these days and recently, I experimented by switching from my usual staple of oily and volumizing shampoos to one that is for normal hair and was happy that it worked well for me. I have a very oily scalp since I was a teen and I’ve always presumed that I need specific shampoos to address that problem. However, it seems that a shampoo for oily hair can be too aggressive and counterproductive.
