Hair and Nails
Your hair and nails are made out of the same material, keratin.
However, since your nails are much thicker, they are harder than your hair.
Daily Hair Care
Brushing helps to stop dirt from building up in your hair by cleaning much of the dirt out. It also makes it easier for the oils in your hair to go down the shafts of your hair.
Brushing too much can damage your hair. You should only brush once or twice a day.
Washing helps clean your hair of germs and dirt better than brushing alone. Washing keeps your hair healthy.
Try not to blow-dry your hair. The heat can damage it.
Cleaning keeps the dirt and germs out from under your nails. Without cleaning, your nails could become infected.
You should clean your nails with soap and water. If they are very dirty, you could use a brush.
Trimming your nails makes them healthy and look good.
You should use a nail file or a nail clipper to trim your nails. Fingernails should be rounded, but toenails should be cut straight across.
