It was then that she decided to take her health more seriously. 

  • Get rid of the perm and chemicals. Once you leave them behind, never return.
  • Always read the labels and learn about the ingredients and the effects they can have on your hair and your body in general.
  • Identify what type of hair you have. For example, high porosity hair requires a different hair care regimen than low porosity hair.
  • Understand your medical history. If you have dry hair, it could be a result of your diet, the medication you are taking or genetics.
  • If you get your hair done at a salon, make sure to ask questions and talk to your beautician.
  • Consider using only organic products. Not only is it better for your hair, but it will save you a lot of money.
