Fabulous, shining, thick and dandruff free hair is the dream of most women. Strong summer sun, freezing cold winter, colouring, stress and inadequate food; these all contribute to dissolution of this shiny dream.

However, there are some DOs and DONOTs which will help you make this dream finally come true.

  • Trim the split-ends of your hair regularly, brush your hair slowly with a quality hairbrush/comb.
  • Do not use very hot air when drying your hair and do not change the colour of your hair from very light to very dark and back again. Keep the colour shades close to your natural hair colour and if not having problems with grey hair yet, try some organic dyes such as henna or coffee.
  • Avoid over-exposure to the sun and of course, give your hair some nourishment from both inside and outside. The B-Complex vitamins may prevent hair loss and help you with growing long hair. Vitamin C and E help blood circulation, so the nourishments will get to your hair faster; and Beta Carotene will make your hair shiny again.
  • Try to base your hair care on natural, organic ingredients which are free of chemicals and will not dry out your hair.
