7 Products That Make Hair Care EasyThere are 7 essential hair care products that make care of your hair simple and easy. Salon quality hair at home, with just a bit of practice and planning, is right at your finger tips. You can get overwhelmed with the number of different products available in the store or the salon. Watch a hair care ad on television and you are convinced that product will be miraculous for you too.

You must use careful consideration but with practice youll be able to choose the products that really will do miracles for your individual case.

Good hair care begins with a good brush. And there are many choices! The higher the quality the brush the healthier your hair. It only makes sense. If the brush that you pull through your locks breaks, tears and pulls the hair left behind will be cracked, frizzed and broken. The best brush has a rubber base with boars head bristles. The rubber base gives the bristles some give and take on your hair and the bristles flex which cuts down on the damage to your hair.

The next product that make hair care easy are shampoo and conditioners. Shampoos work by cleaning the hair of dirt and extra oil, a natural conditioner secreted by glands close to the base of the hair follicle. Picking the right shampoo is all about picking the one that is best for your individual hair type. Determine your hair type and get the shampoo that works best for you. The ads may promise that panthenol works wonders for everyone but in fact it is best for those with fine hair that requires a bit of plumping and swelling to give added volume.

More shampoo is also not better; nor do you have to rinse and repeat. If you washed well the first time then a second washing may be to harsh for your hair and leave it stripped of needed oils, dry and damaged. Instead pay attention to your hair and what its telling you. If one washing does the trick then one washing it is.

Unless you have fine straight hair you should use a conditioner at least every other washing. Those with curly or coarse hair should condition every day with a hot oil treatment once monthly. Conditioners help to protect your hair from damage from your hair dryer, vigorous brushing and other environmental toxins. Conditioners leave your hair with less tangles, moisturized and hydrated.

The third product is a wide toothed comb. This is what you use when the hair is wet not a brush! A brush should never go near a wet head instead pick up a wide toothed comb to gently detangle your locks, leaving them in the same shape you found them undamaged.

If you want a shiny head of hair you may want to check out those shine serums. If you have curly hair that reflects light well, or fine straight hair that may get weighed down by the product, this may not be on your list. All others, check out the shine serums and what they can do to make your head of hair sparkle.

Number five is a great blow dryer. A good dryer with strength will speed the drying process and cut down on the time your hair is exposed to damaging heat. If you have thick hair youll need one with 1875 watts. If your hair is fine youll be able to get away with one that is 1500 watts.

Mousse, balms and defrizzing agents will help your shiny healthy hair do exactly what you want not what it feels like that day. Heat, humidity, activity level, and the way you wear your hair will all play a part in whether your hair looks good in the middle of the afternoon, the way it did that morning in the mirror. Using a volumizing mousse, straightening balm or defriz agent will help you to achieve the look you are seeking.

And the final of the 7 products that make hair care easy is hairspray! Hairspray has evolved from the sticky substance that dried to a stiff sheen that grandmother used. At least it should have! Hairspray will help keep your hair in place during bouts of humidity and heat and protect from UV rays. Look for a soft and flexible formula that will hold your hair in place and protect without giving your helmet head. If you need a bit of extra body you can lift your hair in sections and spray close to the roots, using the product more like a mousse than a hairspray.

Keeping these products in your arsenal of hair care supplies will help you look your best each and every day you walk out of the house, and even when you are lounging around the house!
