Owners of mixed-type hair have a hard time: they have oily hair at the roots and dry hair ends that require special attention and increased care.
This is the most problematic hair type. This type, as a rule, includes long hair - it is not sufficiently greased along the entire length with fat and ends, not receiving a sufficient amount of lubricant, becoming dry and brittle, and often splitting.
What is the cause of this discrepancy?
Excessive greasiness of the roots suggests a very deep problems that are associated with the regulation of secretion of the sebaceous glands. Such a problem may occur after suffering stress or injury, due to the occurrence of endocrine disease.
Dry tips appear under the influence of adverse factors: climate change, frequent use of thermal rollers and hair dryer, exposure to chlorinated water, frequent bleaching, coloring and permed hair.
How to care for such hair?
Mixed-type hair requires a combined care with the help of various special means, which will be aimed at reducing root greasiness and increasing the fat content of the tips. With proper use of funds, following the tips and certain rules, you can maintain the health of your hair, prevent their further damage and protect them. Useful tips:
one. Never use hot water when washing your hair. Firstly, it further increases the greasiness. Secondly, hair is very sensitive and hot water will damage it. Before washing it is useful to put on the tips of a little vegetable oil, and on the scalp - a mask for greasy hair.
2 Be very careful when choosing which products to use for your hair. Under no circumstances, do not use shampoo for oily hair - this will worsen the condition of dry ends, for dry hair - the problem of oily roots aggravates. Choose soft shampoos specifically for the mixed type (or for normal ones) - they have a balance of special substances.
3 Use a little shampoo when washing. It is best to rub the shampoo in the foam on the scalp, and the resulting foam is to wash the hair along the entire length. Try not to apply shampoo directly on the tips, so as not to overdry the already dry hair.
four. After washing, you need to carefully wash off the shampoo. After it is best to apply conditioner or rinse hair with herbal extract, which will be even more effective.
Just do not forget that the conditioner should be applied only to the ends of the hair, as it has a moisturizing effect and is not suitable for the scalp. And after applying it, it is also thoroughly rinsed with cool water in order to keep the moisture in place and prevent the release of large amounts of fat.
five. Once every 2 months you need to cut hair to get rid of dry ends.
