Today’s post is about my hair maintenance. Sorry for you guys because I write this due to remind me about how to maintain my hair, but I hope this post can give you some useful information as well. 😀
So, I have a hair-fall problem. This is happening due to my messy sleep schedule, a lot of pressure for my final task, and a lot of mistreatment for my hair. The stupid thing is, I used to wash my hair with warm-almost-hot water, dry my hair with hair-dryer every time I wash my hair, and seldom use hair tonic. I don’t often go to salon, and I don’t eat quiet healthy food that can help my hair growth. These are several things I’ve done that cause my thinner-more-each-day hair.
So then this afternoon, I went to salon. I was going to get a hair cut, because my hair had grown longer and I needed a fresh new look. The one that took care of my hair was named Mr.Asan. As usual, someone washed my hair and then came Mr.Asan.
“What model do you wish for?”, he said.
“Hmm, a layer cut, please. My (hair) bangs is already too long so it doesn’t exist anymore, can you please make the new one connected with the rest of my hair?”
Then he started to cut my hair.
The first comment came out from him about my hair was,
“Don’t get sleep past 10 pm.”
Wow, how could he know I always sleep late?
“It helps the hair to reproduce new hairs. If you often sleep late, it will disturb the regeneration process.”
Okay. So the sleep schedule affected the hair-fall problem.
“Do you wash your hair everyday?”
“Umm,yeah?” I said it with hesitation.
“Washing your hair everyday will undermine the natural ability for hair to grow a new hair. Do it once every two days. And so does for using hair-dryer and hair-straightener. Using them everyday will corrupt your hair’s pigment. You see, your hair is supposed to be black but it’s color looks brownish now.”
Wow, I washed my hair everyday and even dried it with hair-dryer, everyday.
“And do you use warm water to wash your hair? Don’t do it! Every time you use warm water, the pore on your scalp widen and it makes the root of your hair loosen. That’s why your hair will easier to fall.”
Okay, it explained a lot.
“If you have to wash your hair everyday, you have to be diligent to do hair-spa. It helps your hair to gain his natural ability back. Or you can use aloe vera in replacement.”
Hair-spa. Remember it, hair-spa.
“Ah, and every time you comb your hair, don’t comb it to the side-down. Comb it to the back. You see this cleavage on your head. If you make it too sharp, it’ll slowly become bald on there. Avoid making such a cleavage on your head.”
So you said it.
While talking, I didn’t realize he was already finished with my hair. Waw, looked really fresh and nice. Then I paid for the bill, thanked him and asked for his name. After went from salon, I bought hair-spa, just like what he said.
Hopefully everyone who has the same problem with me would get some useful informations from this, hehe. Good luck! 😀
