Some basic hair care can go a long way. You should always cover your hair with a scarf when you go out in sun. Avoid using hair dryer regularly; it may damage your hair. Eat lots of fruits, green vegetables and drink lots of water. This is not only important for having a healthy body but also essential for good hair. Avoid combing on your wet hair and always use wide toothed comb.

Comments:   Massaging your hair with a good oil of your choice can help you to get good silky soft hair. But oil massage is really important apart from the other treatments you give to your hair. It is not only about getting silky hair but also getting good and strong hair. So it is really important to get silky hair. It is also good for keeping your hair smooth. Regular massage will help you to bring out good results for your smooth and silky hair. As mentioned above the other tips are also beneficial. Without a proper massage it is difficult to cope with dry hair and at the same time with white hair. Other than oil massage other treatments like using natural conditioners can also prove to be good for getting silky smooth.

Comments:   The products which recently introduced recently are very bad for the health of hair. The chemical products are very harmful not only for hair but also for the scalp. I have used certain hair softening products which cause dandruff. It is not worth to use artificial products to make your hair silky. It is temporary, so we should always learn to maintain what we have naturally. Natural conditioners mentioned in the article are very good. I have tried some of them. The herbal powders mentioned are really good for hair. It is also affordable to use natural products for your hair. Some of these ingredients are easily available in the kitchen.
