Easy Natural Tips For Effective Hair Growth

These days increasing numbers of people are suffering from the grave problem of hair loss. It is not only men but women too who experience balding patches, though the patterns in both the biological sexes differ strikingly. In general, the causes that are common for both men and women for causing inefficient hair growth include stress, hormonal changes, hereditary reasons, side effects of prescription medicines, skin disease Alopecia Areata, Trichotillomania, inadequate nutrition, frequent hair styling and treatments and Iopecia Areata.

In men, hormonal changes take place when there is an imbalance of testosterone. Decreased testosterone levels tend to cause receding hair lines in men. In women, the imbalance of hormones takes place when they consume birth control pills, have undergone parturition or have just experienced their menopause. When hair growth is on decline, then the concerned individual, be it man or woman, can feel really low in self esteem, and can feel embarrassed about themselves in public. Their morale is always on the downscale and they feel dejected and pessimistic.

These days there are various remedies available for treating hair loss and to promote effective hair growth. Not only are there various surgical methods like hair transplants and hair weaving but there are various pills, creams, oils and potions that are also easily accessible to have that great mane restored. While most of these ways are temporary and may cause some side effects, hair transplant surgery is a permanent and very effective method. The only drawback of this surgery is that it comes to be quite expensive for the individual who may have to spend much in order to restore hair growth. It is the natural methods for hair growth that are absolutely safe and bear no side effects, and are really effectual.

Some of the really beneficial hair growth tips that can help the individuals suffering from hair loss are the following:

  • Never comb or brush your hair excessively as it leads of increased breakage of hair strands.
  • Do not pull the hair in very tight pony tails as it puts the stress on the hair roots and thereby weakens them.
  • It is very crucial that you wash your hair at regular intervals and keep them clean. In fact, keep your brushes and combs clean as well. Massaging the hair roots once in a while is a good idea as it increases the blood circulation and thereby promotes hair growth.
  • If you have dandruff, make sure you get it treated right way from a specialist. Dandruff increases the dryness on the scalp thereby reducing the natural moisture leading to rough and weak hair.
  • Use only quality products on your hair. Also, try to use products that cater to your specific hair type.
  • It is important that you do not experiment much with your hair as frequent blow drying, curling and straightening makes the hair weak.

 

Last but not the least, it is crucial to have a proper balanced diet to promote great hair growth and have a shining and voluminous mane.

Hair related problems are increasing day by day, it is good to resort to natural ways first than jumping onto medical therapies.

Spring Hair Styles for 2010

Spring is just around the bend and everybody’s excited for the anticipated leap forward, but more than that it’s telling us to shake off the winter blues. And what better way to do that than to smarten up your style with a new hairstyle?

Now you don’t really have to rush into a drastic change without consulting somebody in-the-know just to update your looks. Your hair cut and style or even your hair color is as important as when you go for a new wardrobe, so consult your hairdresser. They would be in the best position to advise you on what will look good with the type of hair you have, face shape and skin tone.

Spring hairstyles for women call for excellent cuts that show off soft layers and wispy fringes for easy and versatile hair styles. It’s the perfect time to bring out that soft feminine look to complement open necklines, flowing floral fabrics and silky smooth pastel makeup apt for the season.

It seems straightener is temporarily relegated to the drawer, at least until after the sunny seasons; soft textures and curls rule and will most likely dominate the hair waves in the following months. It’s all about that carefree, natural look with plenty of texture and not as much hair products.

Here are some basic guides to get that trendy new look:

Sassy Short Hair

This season, shorter hairstyles are a study in contradiction; an amazing blend of soft and sharp, if you want to put it that way, with a touch of the playful and the rebellious. Most women seem afraid of short hair because they’re quite unsure that they wouldn’t end up with blunt cut and straight edges. But if it’s done right, you’d end up with the trendiest short hair style.

How to get the right style: Hair should be shorter on the sides and longer through the top with lots of volume. Ask your hair stylist to create choppy, asymmetrical layers on top. This will ensure that hair doesn’t lie flat to the head and has slight volume. Sweeping fringes or heavy bangs that taper from shortest to longest in a left-to-right fashion, add a delicate finish to an edgy look. This style also allows you to wear your hair all brushed forward, swept to one side or parted and tucked behind the ears.

Sexy Mid Length or Shoulder Length

An all-one-length hair looks boring and dull; and there’s a chance that it won’t frame your face as it should. So avoid it at all cost. Layers are still very much in and they generally give your hair that bouncy movement, glossy shine and silky smoothness.

How to get the right style: Have your hair stylist add longer layers at the back with shorter strands in front to better frame your face. Give firm instruction not to over-layer though, as this can result to hair getting a tad too wispy and thin at the bottom, and may create “fly-away” strands.

If your hair is on the thin side or you have very fine strands, use volumizing shampoo and only apply conditioner at the tips. For extra lift, apply volumizing product to the root and scalp area and briskly massage with your fingertips in an upward direction. You can either air-dry your hair for messy but sexy look or blow-dry straight with a paddle brush. Complete the style with some squirts of hairspray for added texture and volume.

Chic Long Looks

The good thing about long hair is there are dozens of ways you can style it whether you have natural waves and curls or very straight long hair.

How to get the right style: Rather than taking off a uniform length, your hairstylist should trim and shape in layers to frame your face better. Layers give the illusion of lighter look.

If you have wavy or curly long locks, wear it loose and relaxed with long tumbling waves. With the classic model center parting, the “just-from-the-beach” look provides a carefree, chic and sexy appearance. You can still sport this hair style even if you have straight hair by following these simple steps:

  • Blow-dry and section your hair
  • Twist into ringlets and secure with hairclips; then, allow to cool
  • Remove grips and gently run your fingers through the tresses

 

Spring 2010 hairstyles will see a resurgence of one sided braids and side plaits. This hair style is very easy to create. First, apply a texturizing or styling product that provides soft hold. Then sweep hair to one side and plait loosely, securing the bottom with a natural colored band. Run your fingers over the braid and tease out the short bits to create a messy but playful finish.

Up-do is still a hit in hot 2010 long hair styles that include the classic ballerina buns. But loose buns are also chic and sexy and easy to do, too. Buy a hair donut from a dance shop. Pull your hair into a pony tail and secure with a naturally colored elastic band. And don’t worry about making it perfect – messy looks great! Thread the hair through the donut and wrap your hair around it. Use a few hair grips to hold it in place.

Take the hint from the catwalks this spring and hug your hair’s natural texture. Go for 2010 spring hairstyles that bring out the essence of a woman: simplicity and femininity.

Prom Updo’s

There are several choices when it comes to prom hairstyles. Girls can either have an updo or down do, and even a half updo. Every hairstyle does a great work in complementing the whole look. Prom half updos are perfect options for some girls because of the combined benefit it gives. It offers the classiness of a hair updo and the comfortable feature of a down do. These hairstyles are easy to handle since there will be no complicated tight buns to make. Your hair can be styled with a down do and simply pin the back of your hair for a chic look. The versatility and ease offered by this hairstyle makes it a popular choice among many girls and from hair stylists as well.

The different hairstyles vary according to how they are styled. They can be done either on the front or back of the hair. Your front hair is left freely swaying on the sides of your face either curled or straight. The back can also be curled or pinned with the front portion having a side swept fringe to compliment the look.

Ponytails can also be applied for a prom half updo. You can pull your hair back into a high ponytail or place the ponytail on the side. Either way, it will be easy to create and manage. You can produce fascinating looks like high sweep updo and pinned back curls. If your hair is naturally straight and you want to have an elegant style, make sure that you have the ends of your hairs curled and the front done with little curls as well.
