A parsnip is a cream-colored root vegetable that looks like a carrot.  Parsnips contain vitamin C, chlorine, phosphorus, potassium, silicon, and sulfur, providing excellent nutrition for the hair, skin, and nails.  Try substituting parsnip puree for mashed potatoes for healthy hair.

Most shampoos contain harsh detergents that can strip hair of moisture and amino acids and make it look dry and dull.  This is harmful because hair needs to retain some natural oils to protect it and the scalp.  Fortunately, you can wash your hair by applying conditioner to your scalp, gently rubbing your scalp with your fingertips to wash it, and then thoroughly rinsing your hair and scalp with water.  Now your hair and scalp are clean, and you may continue with your normal conditioning routine.  This technique works well and is much healthier for your hair.

Whenever you wash, style, or touch your hair, always be extremely gentle.  Tugging, pulling, combing, brushing, or washing the hair roughly or rigorously can cause split-ends as well as damage to the scalp, so treat your hair as though it were fine antique lace.  If your scalp feels any kind of discomfort or tension, you are probably causing some kind of damage to your hair follicles.  The best thing that you can do for your hair is to practice using a more patient, soft, and sensitive touch every day.

Hot roller clamps are simply the best for holding hair up when sectioning for braiding, blow-drying, or styling.  They are lightweight with a wide grip and won’t snag hair like smaller clips.  Especially helpful when dealing with a lot of hair.
