If your hair is curly, short or spiky, use your fingers to dry the hair which will help the hair stand up more than using a comb or brush. Do not vigorously rub wet hair with a towel. Use a dabbing or patting action to absorb most of the moisture.
Combing hair regularly is a good habit, this is another way to massage hair tissues and enhance hair growth. Combing with a wide-toothed brush separates tangles and prevents hair fall and damage. Hair is weakest when wet and soak dry with a towel before combing. Similarly, combing entirely dry hair is as harmful as combing wet hair. Use a comb which has soft bristles also make sure that you use it regularly as improper use of comb may also damage your hair at times.

Conditioners may also be specially designed to counter the effects of conditions such as dandruff or to help preserve moisture and color in dyed hair.

Trimming or cutting of hair on a regular basis not only gets rid of split ends, and will prevent the formation of split ends. Moreover, the more you cut your hair, the more it grows strongly but not in length. If untrimmed, the split ends grow up higher into the hair and will finally result in thinning and loss of hair. Moreover, the split-ends usually have a white head at the end of each split that looks very ugly, and makes explicit that hair is not healthy. Trimming method for those who want hair that is blunt at the ends, whether it’s straight-across, U-shaped or V-shaped. Feel free to modify this method to suit your own hair and preferences. Just remember to have really sharp scissors when trimming your hair, preferably real hair trimming scissors, otherwise they will just damage your ends and cause split ends.
Massaging hair once or twice in week using oil or oil-based conditioners, improves blood circulation in the scalp, and relaxes muscles in the head, improving hair growth.

Hairstyle defines your personality and your dressing. Braiding and deadlocks looks good, but are not good for your hair and weakens hair follicles. There is actually a myth that leaving hair loose results in drying of hair and weakens them. In contrast to the usual belief, braided hair can accumulate sweat and dirt, and thereby can increase the cause of infection and tangles.
On the skin appear at the beginning of teenage year’s pimples and breakages. Girls are more prone to acne problems than the boys. The skin care treatment is to reduce the oiliness of skin. Remove the dead cells and prevent the bacterial growth. But the tips and tricks for skin care for different skin types depending on how much the skin are oily, dry or normal. However, the good thing is that skin care tips are not difficult. Keeping the face clean need not have to be a huge procedure and there is no need to shell out too much on skin products. All you have to do is give your skin the right care.
• Avoid touching your face with your fingers or leaning your face on objects that collect sebum and skin residue like your phone. Touching your face can spread the bacteria that cause pores to become inflamed and irritated. To keep bacteria at bay, wash your hands before applying anything to your face, such as treatment creams or makeup.
• If you wear glasses or sunglasses, make sure you clean them frequently to keep oil from clogging the pores around your eyes and nose.
• If you get acne on your body, try not to wear tight clothes. They don’t allow skin to breathe and may cause irritation. Scarves, headbands, and caps can collect dirt and oil, too.
• Remove your makeup before you go to sleep. When buying makeup, make sure you choose brands that say “non comedogenic” or “non acnegenic” on the label. Throw away old makeup that smells or looks different from when you first bought it.
• Keep hair clean and out of your face to prevent additional dirt and oil from clogging your pores.
• Protect your skin from the sun. It may seem like a tan masks acne, but it’s only temporary. A tan may worsen your acne, not improve it. Tanning also causes damage to skin that will eventually lead to wrinkles and increase your risk of skin cancer.
Eyebrow shaping is an integral part of most grooming routines. While waxing offers speed and precision, it takes skill and experience to execute. People of all skill levels, on the other hand, can perform tweezing. Tweezing provides ultimate control, and keeps skin free of hair for up to three weeks.
• Which hairs you tweeze and which ones you don’t is the difference between attractively shaped brows and misshapen ones.
• Try using an eyebrow pencil to draw on different shapes over your brow area to see which shape looks the best.
• Use a magnifying mirror, at least a 5X magnification, so you can see each hair.
• Go slowly (one hair at a time) so you don’t over-tweeze.
• The beginning of the brow should align with the center of the nostril.
• The arch of the brow should fall at the back third of the eye.
• The eyebrow should follow the length of the eye but it shouldn’t extend into the temple area. The basic rule is that the front part of the brow should never drop below the back part of the brow. Allowing this to happen, either with the way you tweeze your eyebrows or the way you draw them on, makes you look like you’re frowning and overemphasizes the downward movement of the back part of the eye.
• Avoid over-tweezing above the brow. A few stray hairs are fine to remove, but too much and it can create an unnatural look.
• Do not overstate the shape of the brow; minimal brow alteration is best.
• Do not pluck brows into a thin line thinking it will make your eyes look larger. It can look dated or give the face a surprised look and this shape is not easy to correct once the damage is done.
