Avoid over brushing/combing your hair

By Nirja Jaiswal | Hair Care Blog , Tuesday Tip

Hey FairFaxFans,

How’s Tuesday treating you? Hope all’s well. Brighten up a boring Tuesday & make every day a great hair day. Just follow our simple hair care tips. Read on to know about today’s Tuesday Tip given by FairFax!

Do you know brushing/combing your hair stimulates the blood flow in your scalp? Yes, it’s true! The increased circulation provides more oxygen & nutrients, & helps to nourish hair roots/ promote hair growth. It also exfoliates dead skin cells & triggers production of scalp oils that keep your hair follicles moisturized, shiny & healthy.

But don’t over-do it. Excessive brushing/ combing can make your hair weaker & cause more hair breakage/ split ends. Too much brushing/ combing can cause friction & hair damage. Extra care is needed while combing colored hair as they are more prone to hair breakage. Therefore it’s best to brush/comb your hair just twice a day – once in the morning & then again in the evening.

You should trim 2-3 mm every alternate month

By Nirja Jaiswal | Hair Care Blog , Tuesday Tip

Hey FairFaxFans,

How’s the Tuesday going for you? Hopefully better than Monday because the worst is over! Make some time for a Terrific Tuesday & also for a new post from our weekly series: Tuesday Tips. Read on to know what today’s valuable hair care tip introduced by FairFax!

You love your hair, don’t you? You work so hard to make it look voluminous, bouncy, silky & beautiful. But if you have split ends, no matter how long or shiny your hair is, it will always look tired & dull.

Split ends are a persistent problem. They make your hair look dry, frizzy, damaged & also prevent your hair from growing longer. Split ends can be caused by excessive usage of hot styling tools, chemical damage, frequent combing/ brushing or an unbalanced diet. What’s worse, the splits will continue to travel up from the ends (up to the roots) unless you do something to fix them.

Fret not, you can control the damage by following this simple hair care tip. Get a hair trim at regular intervals. Trim 2-3 mm from the ends every alternate month to prevent split ends from growing. Protect your hair from further damage, maximize hair growth & improve hair health with this simple trick.

Do not step out with wet or oily hair

By Nirja Jaiswal | Hair Care Blog , Tuesday Tip

Hey FairFaxFans,

How are you all doing on this fabulous Tuesday? After a hard day’s work yesterday, we hope you have made your peace with the work week. It is Tuesday & its time for the latest edition of our weekly series Tuesday Tips. Read on to know today’s valuable hair care tip by FairFax!

Who doesn’t want shiny, gorgeous hair? But for that you need to treat your hair with love & care. How you wash, dry & style your hair can seriously affect its health & appearance. Today’s tip is very easy to follow, but sometimes it is the easy things that are forgotten.

Do not step outside with wet or oily hair. Wet or oily hair will attract dirt, dust & other solid particles from the environment. This may result in frizz, damage, dandruff & hair breakage. Also, when wet hair is exposed to direct sunlight, there is more possibility of it getting damaged. So, before you step out in this humid weather, make sure that your hair is completely dry. Always pat-dry hair with a soft cotton towel by wrapping the towel around your hair. Do not rub hair with the towel as it may cause split ends & rough hair.

Clean your hair brush/comb regularly

By Nirja Jaiswal | Hair Care Blog , Tuesday Tip

Hey FairFaxFans,

If you’re like FairFax, you are already dreaming about the next weekend! But just one day down in this weekly grind – 4 (or 5) more to go. So get ready to work your way through the rest of the week & enjoy it as much as possible.

If Tuesday is here it can mean one & only one thing. A new post in our weekly series: Tuesday Tips. As you know, every Tuesday, we post a hair care tip to help you keep your hair game strong.

Everyone wants their hair to be healthy & strong. And we invest in fancy tools, hair brushes, handmade combs & what not… But if you want these tools to work wonders on your hair, they need to be cleaned regularly. Be honest with yourself for a sec… when was the last time you cleaned your hair brush/comb?

Think about what gets stuck in your hair brush (other than hair): dust, smoke, hair spray, oils from your scalp, other product residue, germs, & any other random thing flying around. Now what happens when you don’t clean your hair brush for weeks? Do you really want to brush all that onto your freshly washed hair? We think not. Product buildup on your hair tools can damage your hair, cause split ends & invite other hair problems like dandruff, scalp infections, head lice, scabies & hair fall.

So it is important to clean your hair brush/comb regularly. Taking out just 5-10 mins will help. All you need is an old toothbrush & a mild cleanser of your choice. Clean your hair brush/ comb once or twice a week. Make it a regular practice for healthy & beautiful hair.

Using a satin pillow case help you in preventing hair fall!

By Nirja Jaiswal | Hair Care Blog , Tuesday Tip

Hey FairFaxFans,

Just getting through the week from Monday to Tuesday feels like we have won a small battle in the war against this week’s work, doesn’t it? Well, you’re not alone in the grind sista’! And to give you some respite, here comes the latest in our weekly series Tuesday Tips. As you know, every week on Tuesday, FairFax post a hair care tip that can help you take care of your hair.

We often ignore hair health which sooner than later leads to problems such as hair thinning, hair fall, dryness, itchy scalp, split ends, dandruff, slow growth … & many others. So it is important that you give your hair the love & care it deserves.

If you wake up & find a clump of hair on your pillow, today’s tip is a must follow one. A bunch of hair fallen during sleep will make you sit up in alarm – You might even lose some beauty sleep over it. It doesn’t matter what type of hair you have – curly or straight, long or short, thin & light or coarse & heavy, oily or dry, chemically treated or untouched – some hair care tips are universal.

Do you know that using a satin pillow case may help you in preventing hair fall, hair damage, split ends & hair breakage? For smooth, frizz-free hair & also to prevent hair breakage due to friction, use a soft satin pillow case. The softness of satin eliminates friction & protects your hair from damage when your hair rubs against the fabric. Silk or satin is non-absorbent & less stressful on hair. Cotton pillow cases on the other hand, have a rough texture that causes friction & steals moisture from your hair. This can cause frizz, tangled hair, hair breakage & hair fall.

Therefore ladies, switch from a cotton pillowcase to a silk or satin one. Your beauty sleep will truly result in beautiful hair. If you have any Tuesday

Avoid backcombing your hair!

By Nirja Jaiswal | Hair Care Blog , Tuesday Tip

Hey FairFaxFans,

Hope everyone is enjoying the rains with a hot cup of tea in one hand & an engaging book in the other! If not, fret not, for some of us are working in the office with one hand holding the phone & the other clicking away on the computer mouse.

Tuesday is here & we are here too with our weekly series: Tuesday Tips. As you know, every week on Tuesday, FairFax post a hair care tip to help you keep your hair game strong. Today’s tip is regarding backcombing or teasing.

What are you to do when you have very thin hair? Some people backcomb or tease their hair to add more volume to hair, but do you know doing this regularly can make your hair frizzy, prone to breakage & cause hair loss?

Backcombing is combing your hair from tip to root instead of root to tip. Styling at times is necessary but make sure it doesn’t damage your hair. Teasing is an old trick stylists use to give your hair more volume. Extreme teasing may be very bad for your hair. When you lift up your hair, they don’t regain their original structure. Instead, they become increasingly loose & eventually break off. Avoid teasing or back-combing as far as possible.

Don’t let sweat accumulate on your scalp!

By Nirja Jaiswal | Hair Care Blog , Tuesday Tip

Hey FairFaxFans,

Enjoying the lovely weather out there? Coming back to work after a long weekend can be difficult, especially if the weather outside makes you pine for a long drive in the rain.

Tuesday is here & we are here too with our weekly series: Tuesday Tips. As you know, every week on Tuesday, FairFax post a hair care tip to help you keep your hair game strong.

Monsoon means increased humidity & that can affect your hair. Sweaty scalps & frizzy hair can lead to hair fall. You tend to sweat more in humid conditions as the sweat evaporates slowly. Sweat is the body’s way of naturally cooling itself down & eliminate toxins. And even though it is a natural process, sweat can lead to hair damage.

Salt from dried sweat, can get deposited on your scalp & cause itching & dryness. Working out can increase sweating & therefore it is necessary to remove sweat from your hair by using an absorbent head band. The head band will absorb sweat & protect your hair from damage. Make sure that you use a clean, washed head band every day.

Do not keep your hair open while exercising. Instead tie it up in the form of bun or any other up-do that will help you stay cool & sweat less (check our Saturday Style posts for many versatile up-dos). Drink enough water before, during & after your workouts. Staying hydrated will help you keep cool & also reduce sweating. And after the workout, clean your hair by rinsing with plain water & conditioning (no need to shampoo everyday). Life isn’t perfect but your hair can be. Make sure you keep your hair clean. Excess sweat can weaken hair & shorten the life span of your hair.

To avoid split ends, always use a soft towel to pat dry hair after washing.

By Nirja Jaiswal | Hair Care Blog , Tuesday Tip

Hey FairFaxFans,

Happy Tuesday! Hope you all have had a good start to the new week. Tuesday is here & FairFax are here too with our regular weekly series: Tuesday Tips.

For a while now, you’ve been drying your hair with a towel when you step out of the shower. Right? But you may be doing it all wrong, all this while.

Your hair is one of your most precious & delicate assets, & you want to keep it healthy at all times. But, do you know that drying your hair with a regular & rough bath towel can seriously damage your hair? Read on to know how to dry your wet hair properly without causing any damage.

Rubbing your wet hair with a towel can lead to excessive hair breakage, hair fall, split ends & frizz. The thick fibers of a regular towel when rubbed on the hair actually do more harm than good.

It is recommended that you just pat dry (blot) your scalp & hair with a soft towel (or even a clean cotton T-shirt) instead of rubbing. Just wrap it & leave it for 10 minutes, so that hair doesn’t lose its moisture. Rubbing with a rough towel may permanently harm your beautiful hair. Take a soft towel (a microfibre one if you got one) & dab your hair gently. Instead of using a blower, air drying is the best way to let your wet hair dry.

Avoid using hot water to wash your hair.

By Nirja Jaiswal | Hair Care Blog , Tuesday Tip

Hey FairFaxFans,

Hope you all have had a good start to the new week. Happieee Tuesday Guys!

Tuesday is here, and FairFax is here to with the next installment of our Tuesday Tips weekly series!

Do you know hair wash is so much more than just cleaning your hair? It’s like therapy for most of us. It seems almost impossible to think that there are right & wrong ways of doing it. Read on to know how you can enjoy your hair wash without worrying about damaging your hair.

Washing your hair cleanses your scalp & washes away dirt, dust & oil deposited on your hair. Some amount of hair fall while showering is normal, which means hair falls out naturally but new hair will replace it.

It is suggested that you avoid using hot water to wash your hair. Using hot water for hair wash can stimulate sebaceous glands to produce more oil. Water, if too hot, will cause hair to lose its strength, dry it out, make it prone to breakage & weaken hair roots.

Hair may also becomes dry & frizzy, & there may be a danger of premature greying. Therefore, use cold or lukewarm water to wash hair, especially during the winters (when the temptation to use hot water is at its peak). So, IS there a best method for washing your hair? Yes, here it is:

Step 1: Start with lukewarm/cold water to get your scalp & hair wet. Gently massage your scalp with your favorite shampoo to get the excess dirt and oil out of your hair. Rinse the shampoo off with some lukewarm or cold water.

Step 2: Apply conditioner. Wash the conditioner off with cold water (optional step). Step 3: Take a Mugful of Water (at least one liter) & put 3 drops of FairFax in it.

Step 4: Rinse scalp, hair roots & hair gently with this Herbal Water. Pat dry with a soft towel. (Use FairFax after every hair wash. After Step 4, do not pour more water over your hair, FairFax rinse should be the LAST rinse of your hair.) Now you know how water temperature affect your hair, you’re good to manage your wash day to get that perfect & beautiful hair style!
