Hair Care in this particular article defines the overall care of the hair on the human head. Not all hair is the same and not all hair is cared for in the same manner.
Hair grows from beneath the skin, therefore hair and scalp care is intertwined and care should always be taken not to damage the hair cuticle. It is important to keep the scalp clean and the body healthy which will in turn produce healthy hair.
Hair can be affected adversely by dandruff, bacterial infections and head lice. Did you know that there has been a study which seemed to indicate that head lice actually thrives in clean hair?
Sebum is composed of mainly fatty acids and it function is to protect the hair and skin by providing moisture and shine. This prevents the hair from drying out.

Hair Cleaning and Conditioning
To promote healthy scalp skin and produce and maintain healthy hair one need to choose a hair shampoo and conditioner that is made especially for your type of hair. To distribute the hair’s natural nourishing oils through the hair a brush with natural bristle are more effective than any other type of brush.
When washing one’s hair, excess oil and sweat is removed from the scalp and hair. The shampoo formula wets the hair so that the shampoo molecules can attract the dirt and grease, which then washes away when the hair is rinsed.
Ideally hair conditioner should be used, and the choice of the conditioner is dependent on the state of the hair. Is the hair dry, oily, permed, or coloured? Some conditioners are developed to stay on the hair, without it being rinsed out.
The most effective way to wash hair is to wet the hair with water. Apply shampoo and focus on the scalp with this first application. Now rinse the hair with clean water. Apply shampoo the second time, concentrating on washing the hair this time. Rinse with clean water. Now, towel dry the hair and apply conditioner to the middle section and ends of the hair. Use a wide tooth comb to comb the conditioner through the hair. Rinse properly and set as usual.
Many beauty and hair salons are operated from home. Woman and men invest a lot of time and money in the beauty industry. First impressions count and no one can afford a bad hair day or afford not to look at their best. It is a well known fact that beautiful, weld cared for men and woman are more successful with job applications than the person who does not pay much attention to their appearance.
It also makes business sense to develop and brand your own shampoos and conditioners as well as other hair products.
