My experience with the product:

Concentrator: This hair dryer comes with a detachable concentrator. If you desire only to dry your hair, you can detach this part making your hair drying session really quick. The concentrator of this hair dryer styles hair very effectively by focussing on a particular section of hair. You can have wavy and curly hairstyles very easily in a short span of time.

The shine of hair: The hair dryer always leaves my hair glossy and shiny after every usage. Hair does not look frizzy after drying or styling using this hair dryer.

You can dry your hair using cool setting and not damaging your hair at the same time. When you switch this hair dryer to cool setting, the equipment releases 95% of cool air and only 5% of warm air. So, you can do worry-free drying/styling in no extra time.

Electrical safety: The equipment is tested for electrical safety. It has automatic overheat cut out feature. Whenever I use this hair dryer continuously for longer durations, it automatically cut out the power due to overheat. So, I can safely style my hair at home and not burn them.

Effective Ways To Use Hair Oil To Promote Hair Growth

Hair Oil is the essential need of our hair, whether you believe it or not. Many people try to avoid hair oil just because it is a messy process. Even I believe that it is messy. But I do it every week at least two times, to make my hair strong from roots.

Our current environment is full of pollutants and harmful gases which take its toll on our hair. As a result, our hair becomes weak and more prone to fall due to this malicious environment.

The best way to keep our hair strong and shiny in such kind of environment is hair oiling. It takes me only 15 minutes on the night when I want to wash my hair next morning. In combination with hair oiling you need to focus on your food too. There are a lot of misconceptions about ways of using oil on our hair. That is why I felt the need to discuss all of the effective ways with you. Let’s get started:-

Apply hair oil on scalp for the growth of hair

If you want to promote hair growth, apply hair oil on your scalp. Some people apply hair oil only on their hair forgetting the scalp. They take oil in their palms, rub it in both palms and then apply oil onto their hair. If you are one of them, I just want to tell you that this method only softens your hair and does not promote any hair growth. The best method to apply oil on hair is to pour some oil in a small bowl. Then make small partitions in your hair and apply hair oil in your hair using fingertips. You can also apply hair oil on your scalp by using a bottle with nozzle.

The method of massaging on hair

People tend to do very rigorous massage on their scalp which makes their hair fall from roots. Massaging should be done with soft hands using only fingertips. Massaging increases blood flow in our scalp making our hair strong from roots. If you want to increase the amount of blood circulation in your scalp then keep your head facing downwards while massaging.

Use only adequate amount

Never put an excess amount of oil in your hair just to make them strong in a couple of days. More amount of oil in your hair means more amount of shampoo is required. This strips away natural oil from our hair making them dry, rough and brittle. If you are suffering from excessive hair fall, it will take at least a month to control the problem using hair oil on regular basis.

Steam your hair after applying hair oil

Steaming helps in absorption of hair oil in the scalp. Simple methods to steam your hair is either by using a vaporizer or by wrapping a towel around your head dipped in lukewarm water at least 4-5 times.

Leave the oil in your hair at least overnight

Some people put oil in their hair just half hour before hair wash. Oil should be kept in hair to show its advantageous impact for a minimum of 7-8 hours. Simplest method is to apply oil on your hair and leave it overnight. You can keep oil in your hair for a maximum of 24 hours.

 

Few Secrets To Control Hair Fall This Monsoon

Monsoons are romantic and amazing. Isn’t it? But this season comes with a problem of hair fall for all of us. Hair becomes weak and more prone to frizziness due to induced disturbances that strip away natural oils from the scalp. Hair fall cannot be totally fixed in this season, but it can be reduced to a greater extent.

Today, I am going to share my tried and tested ways to treat hair fall. I got a lot of help from these methods and I want you to benefit from these too.

Apply hair oil on regular basis

As you know that this season strips away the natural oil from our hair. So, you need to retain the natural moisture of your scalp by applying hair oil on regular basis. Make sure to apply hair oil directly on the scalp to avail the maximum benefit. You can apply hair oil on the scalp by using a bottle with the nozzle or by using your fingertips.

Check your hair oil type

The type of hair oil also needs to be checked to gain advantage from it. Natural oils or ayurvedic oils serve the most to get you out of the problem of hair fall. Natural oils like coconut oil, olive oil, almond oil, castor oil are most useful in treating hair fall. Also, there are a lot of options available in the market of ayurvedic oils.

Using same hair care products during a whole year is a big no-no

Haircare products are meant to deal with hair issues. The advantageous effect of these products does not prove to be effective after few months. So, you need to change your hair care products either it is shampoo, conditioner, serum or a hair oil after every few months.

Have multi-vitamin tablets with biotin sufficiency

Hair tends to fall also because of biotin insufficiency. Biotin is also known as vitamin H and is one of a vitamin of the B complex group. Biotin helps in keeping our hair, skin, nails, eyes and liver healthy. Also, have protein rich food to have healthy hair.

Hormone imbalance

Your menstrual cycle may be the culprit behind all of your hair fall problems. Because irregular menstrual cycle creates the hormonal imbalance in our body which in turn makes our hair more prone to fall. You need to do proper medication to make your irregular menstrual cycle regular. Personally, I believe in “Ashokarishta” syrup because it always helps me in making my menstrual cycle regular. You need to have this syrup according to your doctor’s prescription.

Keep your hair away from humidity

Rainwater and sweat make your hair weak due to prolonged exposure to humidity in this season. If your hair gets damp, moist or dripping wet due to rain, wash your hair properly afterwards. Also, make your hair air dry every time sweat accumulate in your hair.

Keep the usage of hair styling products to minimal

Our hair is not that strong in this season to combat the negative effects of hair styling products. So, keep the usage of these products to a minimal amount.

Have junk food free diet

Junk food is good only in taste but it gives you empty calories. Empty calories mean calories with no nutritional value. Food of this kind will never help you in fighting hair fall even if you do all the above-stated procedures in proper accordance.

Handle your hair with extra care

Handling your hair roughly disturbs the follicles and cuticles of your hair. Always use a wide toothed comb for hair detangling. Use a mild shampoo for hair wash.
