Part 1. What is hair? The structure and meaning

Part 1. What is hair? The structure and meaning
Maybe you have found yourself asking these questions (If not, just humor me):
What purpose does hair actually serve? It may provide some insulation, but not much to speak of really. Scientists believe that the evolutionary function of hair was to provide:
Protection of vital parts of the body from cold.
Additional layer of protection for the skin. We have less hair today than our ancestors and future humans may eventually become hairless.
It’s ironic your hairs’ lack of function is what gives it our cultural meaning. Healthy hair is your crowning glory . . . a decoration of sorts. Hair is one of the most important defining statements about your self-identity.If your hair is in disarray and all out of order, all other attempts to create a statement of who you are will fall short.

Hair is protein . . . the same protein that makes up your fingernails, teeth and skin. The scientific name for this protein is keratin. Soft shiny hair is an indicator of good health, like clear skin and strong fingernails. Your hair is fed by blood, which first feeds your essential organs such as your heart and brain. Whatever nutrients are left goes to the extremities. This is why dull lackluster hair sometimes indicates an illness or vitamin deficiency.

Anatomy

Let’s take a closer look:
The cuticle - The outermost layer of your hair is made up of overlapping scales, as on a fish. Healthy hair cuticles lie down smoothly and reflect light, giving hair its shine. This is the only protecting layer for your hair. A conditioner can help smooth the cuticle. Most women can tell whether they need conditioner by the way their hair feels, such as dry, brittle, broken ends. Here’s a test to find out whether your cuticle layer is damaged. Shampoo and condition your hair, then comb it out. If the comb sticks in your hair down toward the ends, your cuticle is either dry or damaged, and you will benefit from a deep-moisturizing conditioner.

The cortex - The bulk of the healthy hair strand, makes up 90 percent of its weight. It gives the hair texture, strength, elasticity, and color because it contains melanin, or pigment. Some leave-in conditioners with protein actually penetrate the cortex and build up the hair from the inside out. (When you use permanent hair color, it needs to penetrate the cortex in order for it to take).
The medulla - The light, air-filled core. It takes care about the temperature ,volume and again- strength ,but some people with fine hair don’t have it at all. Anthropologists think that this might be a throwback to our caveman ancestors, who needed insulation to keep them warm. For the example: the indians had the strongest medulla.

So in the conclusion,I would like to say that dry hair needs water,so use a deep care shampoo + conditioner + mask. U can use a silicon oil on the ends of damaged hair. 
For the oily hair is better to use  deep cleaning shampoo + conditioner  and you need to wash them as more as you need. I know the one teacher and she wash her hair twice a day- in the morning and in the evening. So u need to wash your hair as much as u need,and it's about all hair type by the way. 


In the next post I will tell you my personal story about my damaged hair and what I use to make them more healthy.

Your rights if you hate your haircut

When a high street store goes under or a tour operator goes bust, there’s loads of advice available on your rights and legal protections.
But have you ever wondered what your rights are if you hate your haircut?
Well, we’ve wondered. After all, most companies are more likely to put things right if they can see that you know your legal position and mean business.
***
Your rights if you hate your haircut
If your hair has been massacred by the stylist, the best thing to do is complain on the spot and refuse to pay full price. Explain why it’s not what you wanted and how it’s different to what you asked for. Then you can demand a different stylist fix it or that you’re offered a substantial reduction.
***
To have legal backing, you need to be able to show that the cut is substandard, by proving that it’s not what you asked for or that it’s wonky.
If the salon refuses to refund you, then get opinions from other hairdressers and take photographs so that you have evidence it was a faulty cut and not just personal preference.
Most salons will simply refund you or offer to correct the damage, as they won’t want to damage their reputations.
***
Sadly, if you smiled, paid and went home before deciding you hate it then you’ve damaged your chances of a refund. But again, most salons will want to protect their reputation and will try to put it right.
Having said that, if they don’t then your last resort would be a small claims court, which can seem a little extreme for a bad cut. At this point, I’d settle for leaving detailed online reviews of the salon, so that others don’t suffer the same fate.
And if you’ve had a bad cut then remember that the difference between a good cut and a bad cut is about a fortnight. Fortunately, it will grow back.

Also,I would like to say - don't forget that your stylist is a human too. And everyone can do a mistakes sometimes,even if they have a lot of years of experience. It will be better to tell everything without shouting and rude words. Just tell what's wrong and listen their arguments. I am shure 90% of stylists will be happy to correct their mistakes. It's better to sort everything out peacefully.
