In addition, Vitamins are essential and help to support certain functions of your body, however, for healthy hair, the B vitamins are necessary. In fact, if you have a deficiency in the B vitamin, specifically B6, B12 and folic acid, the health of your hair will decrease dramatically.

Step 4

Having a decent comb or brush is fourth on the list and just as important for good hair. You use combs to detangle your hair, part your hair, straighten your hair when it is damp, and style short hair with pomade or gel. There are many different kinds, such as, fine-toothed, picks, wood, wide-toothed, plastic, and the standard comb. You will find many types of brushes as well. For example, there are bristle, paddle, and round bristle brushes. These are used to smooth hair while styling, massaging the scalp, to detangle hair, and to add volume. They are fairly simple to clean and will last years.

You will find a galore of different websites that offer hair styling tools, including cutting scissors. Therefore, you can select a pair that is right for your hair length and texture.
