Your hair and skin will thank you!

Saturday, 10 January 2015

There's nothing like hopping into a hot, steamy shower on a cold day. It warms you up, eases tight muscles and generally soothes stress away. But, if this is part of your daily routine, you are damaging your skin and hair.

After reading in a magazine about how hot showers can highly effect your hair and skin, i realised how bad it could be
 I knew it was bad for the hair
but i had no idea how much it could dry the skin and hair.
"Hot water can cause over-drying by stripping away essential oils in the outermost layer of skin "
Basically,too many hot showers can cause chronically dry skin, scaly patches and, in severe cases, cracks and fissures.

And the damage doesn't stop with your skin. Hot water dehydrates hair make the hair weaker.
Strips the scalp of natural oils
which can cause your scalp to overproduce oil, leading to greasy roots
So how can we avoid that? "Keep showers under 10 minutes using lukewarm water,"
You'll know if your shower is too long when skin starts to feel tight."
Use a moisturizing cleanser... and after bathing pat dry
applying a thick moisturizer within a minute of stepping out of the shower. 
So, no more piping hot showers, your hair and skin will thank you.
