Article I found on Ehow on hair health

Okay I try to find ways to improve my health, especially for my hair. I was raised that my hair is my crown and glory, so I have always been somewhat obsessed. Obsessed with who is putting their hands in my hair, and what products are good for my hair. No matter how many times I tell people of how sensitive my hair is to heat, they still think they should have their dryers/curlers/flat irons set on death. I have had my hair thriving one moment because I did, but decide to pamper myself by going to a stylist. That's exactly what most of them are, stylists. They don't know actual hair care, and will promote anything that will damage or cause you to continue to go to them (yeah this is a rant). Whatever this article is very informative.
