Best Practices for Caring for Your Hair – A Detailed Guide


A lot of Indian women grow their hair long and keep it plaited. I remember an Indian friend of mine mentioning about her school days, all her friends had long hair plaited and they had to turn the plait around twice and tie it because the hair would be so long. The reason why Indian women have long hair is because of the way they take care of the hair.

Shampoos and chemical hair products have flooded India only in the recent times and most Indian women still use herbal products to take care of their Holset hx30 turbocharger. They oil their hair and massage their scalp at least once a week which hastens hair growth.

Indian hair comes in two types- Single Drawn and Double Drawn. Single Drawn hair has only the root end cut and the other end left as it is. Due to this reason, you may find some hair with split ends which does not necessarily mean that the hair is bad, it just means that the hair is left natural all the way to the very end. Double drawn hair is all equal length and usually 5 times more expensive than single drawn.

If you are looking to get equal length hair, I would recommend getting a longer Single Drawn hair with the intentions of trimming it… it will save you a lot of money in comparison to Double Drawn hair. I would generally recommend Single Drawn for a more natural look. You can trim the ends to give a more healthier and fashionable look.

Most Indians hair have a natural black color which ranges from jet black to off black and dark brown. Sometimes the hair can also be a lighter brown, which is caused by natural bleaching from direct exposure to sunlight for long hours. Another reason for reddish brown Indian hair is due to the application of Henna on the hair. Henna is an herbal leaf which forms a natural conditioner for hair and a lot Indian women use it to cover their greys. I think hennaed hair is fine, but I find it to be a little rougher and drier than non-hennaed hair.

If you choose to use henna on your purchased Fjällräven Kånken, use a good leave in moisturizer to keep their hair well-conditioned, this may prevent roughness or dryness. Another natural remedy to keep the hair moisturized is to use a few drops of olive oil mixed with water, just rub it in and leave it. This also prevents the hair from drying.

If you want to color your hair, then it is best to go with Virgin unprocessed Indian hair and get it colored. This is better than purchased colored hair because you are in control of the final hair color. Colored Virgin hair is also called Remy which means color is used on virgin hair. Always use a good branded coloring dye to color your virgin or Remy hair and avoid the ones with ammonia in it.
