HAIR CARE TIPS: DO’S AND DONT’S

Nearly all women dream of having thick, long hair. However, pollution and regular use of coloring and styling agents damage the hair, leaving it thin, dry, and brittle. And so, we are here to provide you with information on how to maintain healthy hair.

While it can seem like the only way to renew your hair is with a hair spa treatment, there are several easy steps you can do to keep your hair healthy. Keep reading for more fantastic hair care advice.

 

HAIR CARE DO'S

 

Washing your hair on a regular basis

Regular hair washing keeps your scalp and hair clear of impurities and excess oil. The right frequency, however, is determined by your hair type and personal preferences. Limit your washing to twice a week if you have excessively dry hair. Washing your hair every other day will assist if you have an oily scalp.

 

Use chemical-free shampoos

You cannot control all of the environmental elements that damage your hair, but you can manage the type of shampoo you use. The fewer chemicals in your shampoo, the healthier your hair will be. Select gentle shampoos that are appropriate for your hair type.

Sulfates and parabens are used in shampoos for lathering and preserving, but they can cause skin irritation and raise the risk of hormonal disruptions over time.

 

Use conditioner properly

Your conditioner has elements that help your hair to fall straight and be manageable. It shields your hair from environmental irritants and heat styling. However, it should only be used on the tips of your hair and not on your scalp. Also, after applying it, properly rinse it off.

 

Dry your hair naturally

We are quite aware. Blow drying transforms your hair into that of your on-screen idol. However, excessive heat style might cause harm to your hair's scalp. If you must dress up for an important event, keep it to a minimum. After shampooing, air drying or towel drying is the finest method. Never sleep in wet hair or comb wet hair. Rubbing your hair too hard with a towel might cause cuticle damage.

 

Properly oil your hair

Pre-shampoo therapies such as oiling and massaging the scalp increase blood circulation, relax the muscles, increase shine, and nourish the hair. It also replenishes moisture, promotes hair development, and repairs split ends. You can use coconut oil, almond oil, olive oil, castor oil, and other similar oils. Mineral oil should not be used on your hair.

 

Make use of a wide-toothed comb

Wet hair is brittle and easily broken. Allow your hair to dry before brushing it with a wide-toothed comb. This type of comb protects your hair from being damaged.

 

Regularly trim your hair

Trim your hair every 6-8 weeks to remove split ends. Split ends arise when the hair is damaged by heat styling, pollution, smoking, stress, and other factors. Trimming does not make hair grow faster. Hair development occurs at the scalp level, however trimming guarantees healthy hair.

 

Consume more water

Internal and external hydration are essential for well-balanced and healthy hair. Even if you use moisturizing hair care products and oils, consuming at least 3 litres of water daily ensures optimal hair health.

 

Consume healthy foods

We'll keep saying 'you are what you eat' as long as we're writing about hair and skin care. Proteins and amino acids make up your hair. It needs proper nourishment to grow and maintain itself. Some of the many fantastic meals for good hair include eggs, berries, almonds, salmon, green leafy vegetables, and sweet potatoes.

 

Wear hair caps or hats

The same way that sunlight harms your skin, it also harms your hair. Sun rays can strip moisture from your hair, leaving it dry, brittle, and damaged over time. When going out, wear a hat to protect your hair from being damaged. When swimming in a pool, cover your hair with a cap. Chlorinated water is damaging to your hair.

 

Make use of hair bands

We like to show off our open hair, but we use hair bands to keep it safe from environmental aggressors. Instead of plastic hair ties, use fabric ones. When making a ponytail or any other hairstyle, avoid pulling your hair too tightly.

 

 

HAIR CARE DONT'S

Hot showers

Hot showers remove the natural oils from your scalp, leaving it dry and flaky. Cold showers are your best option.

 

Chemicals

Chemicals from dyeing, perming, and other hair treatments damage your hair follicles, impair hair growth, and can cause hair fall.

 

Hair Styling Supplies

Heat styling with straighteners, blow dryers, and curlers for extended periods of time affects the texture of the hair, making it dry and prone to breakage.

 

Stress

We can guarantee our lives that if you see someone with healthy hair, they are less worried. Hair fall and poor hair can be caused by stress.
