Hair care is an overall term for hygiene and cosmetology involving the hair which grows from the human scalp, and to a lesser extent facial, pubic and other body hair. ... Hair may be colored, trimmed, shaved, plucked or otherwise removed with treatments such as waxing, sugaring and threading. Hair care services are offered in salons, barbershops and day spas, and products are available commercially for home use. Laser hair removal and electrolysis are also available, though these are provided (in the US) by licensed professionals in medical offices or speciality spas. Keeping one's hair clean is important more for social reasons than for health. Dirty, unkempt hair can be visually distasteful and may even develop an obnoxious odor. This is often due to a buildup of oil on the scalp from the sebaceous glands. Bacteria feeds on this buildup, resulting in odors. Hair care is a very important and a hygienic routine for both men and women. Genetic pre-disposition may cause harmful effects, but healthy living may prevent adverse conditions like alopecia. ... Taking care of your hair is as important as any other part of the body. Find the latest about Haircare news, plus helpful articles, tips and tricks, and guides at Glamour.Business.
