Health Tip: Keep Hair Looking Healthy
Here's what you can do
-- Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- Hair treatments designed to improve your appearance may actually be damaging your coiffure.

The American Academy of Dermatology suggests these healthy hair tips:

  • If possible, use color that's no more than three shades different than your natural hair color.
  • Always test at-home color before using it on all of your hair, checking for rash or irritation.
  • Wear a hat with a wide brim to protect your hair from the sun.
  • If you perm your hair, always follow the instructions. Set a timer to make sure you wash out the perm solution promptly.
  • See a dermatologist if the perm solution causes severe burning or stinging.
