New Delhi, Sep 22, 2017: Moisture in the air, humidity, rain or even perspiration, can cause your hair to become fuller and wilder! To keep puffy hair in control, there are some tips and techniques which can help you achieve tamed, lustrous and groomed tresses for instance going for hair taming or systematizing your routine, say experts.

Arpit Jain, Founder and Managing Director of Auraine Botanicals, doles out tips on how you can get rid of frizzy hair in the upcoming winter season.

* Select the right conditioner for your hair: The right conditioner can be the best way to put moisture back into your frizzy curls. Use an anti-frizz conditioner with keratin protein. There are rinse-out and leave-in conditioners available in the market, choose your conditioner according to your lifestyle.

* Systemize your hair wash routine: Washing hair too often can result in a loss of natural oils which help in keeping your hair nourished and hydrated. Aim to wash hair only two to three times a week. Look for a sulfate free, chloride free, Paraben free and TEA DEA free shampoo. It increases moisture retention by gently cleansing your hair & scalp and hydrating it from inside out.

* Hair taming: Hair taming or Keratin treatment rejuvenates hair strands while relaxing hair for up to 5 months. Hair Taming is much more natural and uses way less chemicals than rebonding or hair smoothening.

Sanjay Dutta, Founder of Looks Salon, also lists some important steps.

* Brush your hair the right way: Brushing disrupts the hair cuticles; it can also stretch the hair and cause breakage. Towel-dry your frizzy hair after a shower and finger-comb it while it’s still wet. Then, add a small amount of serum or soothing conditioner. If you need to comb your hair, do so with wet fingers. Finger combing can help tame frizz and de-tangle your hair, you may also use detangle comb for the same.

* Dry your hair before blow-drying: This is a stylist’s trick and it is honestly life changing. Let your hair dry naturally a bit before using the heat of a blow dryer to avoid any damage to your hair and don’t forget to apply heat protection cream or serum before using any heating equipment.

* Trim your hair: Sometimes damage from split ends adds to unhealthy looking hair. The more splits you have, the more you’ll suffer from frizz. The easy solution is to get a haircut or at least trim the split ends every six months, it would help in getting the desired look. (IANS)

Train Your Brain By Following Good Habits Constantly

The researchers have created a model which shows that forming good (and bad) habits depends more on how often you perform an action than on how much satisfaction you get from it.

If you want to form good habits — like going to the gym and eating healthy — then you need to train your brain by repeating actions until they stick, a new study suggests.

The researchers have created a model which shows that forming good (and bad) habits depends more on how often you perform an action than on how much satisfaction you get from it.

“Psychologists have been trying to understand what drives our habits for over a century, and one of the recurring questions is how much habits are a product of what we want versus what we do,” said Amitai Shenhav, Assistant Professor at Brown University.

“Our model helps to answer that by suggesting that habits themselves are a product of our previous actions, but in certain situations those habits can be supplanted by our desire to get the best outcome,” Shenhav added.

For the study, published in the journal Psychological Review, the researchers developed a computer simulation, in which digital rodents were given a choice of two levers, one of which was associated with the chance of getting a reward.

The lever with the reward was the ‘correct’ one, and the lever without was the ‘wrong’ one.

The chance of getting a reward was swapped between the two levers, and the simulated rodents were trained to choose the ‘correct’ one.

When the digital rodents were trained for a short time, they managed to choose the new, ‘correct’ lever when the chance of a reward was swapped. However, when they were trained extensively on one lever, the digital rats stuck to the ‘wrong’ lever stubbornly, even when it no longer had the chance for a reward.

The rodents preferred to stick to the repeated action that they were used to, rather than have the chance for a reward. (IANS)
