Keep Your Hair Clean

Hygiene is imperative in the growth of hair. Daily shampooing makes the scalp ideal for hair growth. Keeping the hair and scalp clean help control sebum, a natural oil regularly produced by the sebaceous glands found underneath our skin. Sebum is a natural skin and hair condition; it does a good job in keeping our skin and hair moisturized. The only problem with sebum is if not washed regularly, this oil can accumulate, making hair greasy and oily. This oiliness can easily attract dust and dirt and could sometimes cause fungal or bacterial infections to the scalp.

Do Not Use Heat

The use of hot ceramic plates for hair straightening, hair curlers or blow driers can really damage hair, vaporizing the little moisture the hair hold. Constant use of these products can make hair dull, dry and brittle which can cause hair breakage.  Use only when needed or on special occasions.

Try towel drying or using curlers instead of a curling iron to avoid any unnecessary heat on the scalp.

Bottom Line

If you follow these instructions, eat the right foods, keep your hair clean and generally take care of your scalp, you will have gorgeous hair in no time!

The Effects of Dandruff on Hair Growth?

maxresdefaultDandruff is a common scalp disorder characterized by itching and flaking of the skin in the scalp. Dandruff affects almost half of the population at the post pubertal age regardless of sex and ethnicity. This condition is not contagious and is rarely serous but it can be embarrassing.

One common cause of dandruff when the oil known as ‘sebum’ is produced too much. Our hair follicles naturally produce this oil to keep our hair clean. Quite commonly, many people will over produce this oil as a result of the environment they live in. For example, in cold areas, your hair follicles are forced into producing more of this oil, yet when you return to a warmer place, this chemical is continually produced in greater than necessary quantities.

Although sebum is indeed a useful oil, too much of it is counter-productive. Too much sebum  on the scalp creates a blanket of oil preventing dead skin cells from shedding, this causes greasy lumps of dandruff on the scalp.  If not treated, this will cause severe itching and constantly scratching the scalp can pull out hairs from the roots, it can also damage the hair follicles.

The best way to control dandruff is to keep the scalp clean and this is easily done by washing your hair daily. In addition to keeping your hair moisturised, it will also wash off all dead skin cells. It is advisable to use a deep cleansing shampoo and conditioner like FAST. Through adding other essential oils and vitamins while simultaneously cleansing the scalp of any impurities, the FAST formula can help to regulate sebum levels and reduce dandruff.
