Why you should be using a hair primer

We all yearn for a beautilicious mane but most of us have our own set of bad experiences with hair products which keep us away from trying something new. For most of us a face primer has become a regular product for parties but a hair primer is something we are not very sure of. Most women love long locks but are not very confident on experimenting so I bring to you some details about hair primers for some quick help.

What are Primers?

The basic function of any primer be it skin or hair has the innate ability to create an even base for the body part involved. A hair primer can be used alone or before other beauty products. It creates a weightless, humidity resistant surface to further apply any beauty product that you need to. It lets you keep away humidity, dirt particles, oil and moisture; moreover it adds to your hairstyle and helps it to stay longer.

There are two major classifications of hair primers that you can do – one helps you to create a shiny foundation for the hair styles and the other one which helps you clear the knots and remove the frizz.

Pros

  • ease of availability
  • ease of application
  • helps your hair style stay for very long periods of time
  • keeps away the frizz
  • blends very well with your hair texture
  • you do not feel any additional weight

Usage

You must be wondering about how to use the hair primer by yourself, it is very easy. You just need to take a little bit of it and after your hair gets properly cleaned and conditioned you can easily run it through your hair. Make sure you do not rub it or massage it on your scalp. It is best advisable to be used every time you need your damp hair to be styled.

Where to get it

Most leading brands in hair care have hair primers in their kitty. You have a big choice starting from Wella to Sephora and most of these are available online. Stay tuned in for a product review.

Home remedies to treat Oily Scalp

Not having adequate oil in your body is not a boon and so is the excess of it. I have a pretty oily scalp which leads to me having oily hair even the same day as I use shampoo. I am surprised as how active my sebaceous glands are to get me such a hair for over last decades, looks funny but it ain’t. You can ask any girl who goes through this trouble on daily basis so here are a few home remedies to treat oily scalp which should help you like it has helped me with a little practice.

Home remedies to treat Oily Scalp

  • Talcum Powder

All you have to do is massage your regular Talcum Powder on your scalp for a few minutes and leave it to rest. You can wash it off after 10 – 15 minutes to get best results. You can repeat this fortnightly to keep your scalp clean and dry (pun intended).

  • Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera can work wonders for your skin in every form. You can take out fresh Aloe Vera Gel and a few drops of lemon juice and mix it in your shampoo before washing. You can even make this mixture and store it for a few days in your refrigerator.

  • Hair Styling Products

With such oily hair you might have to stay away from hair styling products, majorly conditioners. I do not use a conditioner unless it becomes a dire need because otherwise I will not get that fresh shampoo feel even for a few hours. After using curlers and straighteners also you will notice an increase in oil.

  • Diluted Beer

Diluted Beer works very well for your hair, you can use diluted beer to rinse your hair after a hearty wash with the shampoo. Beer has excellent properties to make your hair soft and remove excessive oil from your scalp.

Lemon Tree Shampoo with Tea tree and Mint Review

Lemon tree has come up with an anti-dandruff hair cleanser as they call it. The shampoo indeed is very good for dandruff removal. The herbal therapy and the feel of mint leaves your hair and scalp very fresh.

I do have dandruff problems in the rainy and winter season due to the usage of warm water for head bath but this product totally floored me. It is a good option for an anti dandruff shampoo.

Thumbs up

It leaves you hair totally fresh and light. You feel extremely clean after using this shampoo and it does not have many chemicals into it.

Thumbs down

Since it does not have many chemicals you cannot use it on oiled hair. The oil won’t come out very easily and you might have to use another shampoo for oil removal.

If you take my opinion with respect to the kind of money that you pay for this bottle is totally
worth it. It is priced at Rs 145 for 130 ml.

Since it is a product by Lemon Tree which belongs to the Lotus Cosmetics group we can be positive about the products and their credibility.
This shampoo proves to be totally herbal and not tested on animals.
Personally even as a user I would recommend this shampoo for better removal of dandruff and clean hair. Also it can be even used daily.

How often to wash your hair

We often get confused on how many times should you wash your hair in a week to keep them perfectly clean. You need to take a tissue paper and wipe it every morning to your hair, the day it becomes sticky you need to wash it.

It will vary from person to person since the sebum production of a person is directly proportional to the oily skin, acne, dust, lifestyle. For women who are into marketing or jobs where they need to go out a lot will make their hair greasier. Also it depends on the location where you stay, if you stay in humid climate your hair tend to get dirtier soon.

It totally depends on when you fell your hair has become oily then should you wash your hair and also choose a shampoo that leaves your scalp perfectly clean.

Bad Hair Habits

 

  • Combing wet hair

Combing we hair is the worst habit you can start your day with, let your dry a little before combing them speedily.

  • Dryer

Over use of dryer will also lead to your hair spoiling fast and becoming more frizzy, let your hair dry naturally as much as possible.

  • Serum

How much ever beauty companies may promote serum but again it is a product that you should refrain from using very regularly, keep it for occasional usage

  • Color Care

After using hair color, use products that protect your color because your hair needs more care and a different set of chemicals when it is colored.

  • Brand Loyalty

Changing your hair care products every week isn’t a great idea for your hair, stick to your favorite for a longer time to avoid any damage.

Hope you follow these for hair care!
