Is your hair healthy? Do you have fine flat hair or curly frizzy hair? What if you could find all the answers to all of the questions you may have about every hair type and how to cure what ails you?The answers are here for over thirty common hair and scalp problems.
How to care for whatever hair type you have is essential information anyone would want to know. It is also important to be able to read and understand all the technical terminology that can be thrown at you. Sivasothy has put together a book that readers will get. She explains the technical and breaks it down to the simple. She teaches the basic truths about hair and how it can be maintained to a level of satisfaction for anyone. Readers will learn details about the hair shaft, cuticle, cortex and the medulla. When it comes to hair texture and type Sivasothy states, “ Knowing your hair's texture and type will help you determine which kinds of products you'll need to use, how much heat styling you can bear or how much handling you can tolerate while still keeping your hair looking great.” We all know what healthy hair is supposed to look like. Commercials show shiny and shimmering hair that looks sleek and flowing, but according to Sivasothy, “All hair is damaged in some way. Damage goes much deeper than what we can readily see. In fact, hair can exhibit none of the traditional signs of damage and still be quite damaged.”
This hair care guide has pictures, definitions and a brief recap at the end of each chapter for a quick reference. According to Sivasothy there are four types of abuses we are prone to become addicted to. These are chemical, physical, environmental and nutritional. These four addictions are what causes hair to become more damaged than just simply leaving it alone. You might be wondering what to do now that your addiction is out in the open. It's time to detox your hair with a simple five stop regimen. It's a lot easier than you think and Sivasothy will guide you each step of the way. Basically, this guide will answer all of your concerns from eczema, hairloss, cradle cap, dermatitis and more. The back of the guide shares restoration treatments with common home remedies and getting back to nature. Readers will learn how to make cleansers from baking soda, bentonite clay, lemon juice and apple cider vinegar. Are you in need of a moisturizer? All you would need is aloe vera, water, glycerine and honey. There is also a list of what products to buy if you are not into home remedies. After swimming try Nexxus, KeraCare or Paul Mitchell. If you have fine oily hair try some Avalon or Aveda products right off the shelf. My final assessment and recommendation is to buy the book whether you think your hair is damaged or not.
