Healthy hair is something that everybody wants to have. It is not so hard to get, but is neither too easy as well! Still, all you have to do is take some extra care. Here are 10 effective tips for you that can help you get healthier hair.
1. Choose Suitable & Correct Shampoo
Not everybody has the same hair texture. For example, the shampoo which is suitable for your friend who may have dry hair is not appropriate for hair which may be oily by nature. There are different types of shampoos, conditioners, and other hair care products. First, you need to know your hair texture and then choose the proper product carefully.
2. Avoid Extra Chemicals & Over-Heating
Extra use of chemicals and heat such as hair coloring, highlighting, or straightening or curling with hair styler can have a negative effect on your hair and make them dry and brittle. And, if you use curling or straightening instruments, then it is necessary to remember to use a hair protectant before application.
3. Daily Care
Daily hair care is most important. Do not use harsh and too many different types of hair products. Daily hair cleansing, conditioning, and combing are very necessary. Of course, there are certain products that you absolutely must use, like shampoo, conditioner, and serum, but try and avoid bottled hair products as much as possible.
4. Pay Extra Attention To Wet Hair
Wet hair is very fragile and breaks easily. When wet, the shaft and roots of your hair are more prone to sustaining damage. Don’t be too harsh when shampooing. And also avoid brushing immediately after a shower. If you have to, then use a shower cap instead.
5. Don’t Tie Too Tight
Do not ever tie your hair too tight. That can increase the chances of hair breakage. Be polite to your hair. Love it and protect it.
6. Control Sun Exposure
Always protect your hair from sun, wind, and rain. Exposure to excessive sun, heat, dirt, pollution, etc. adds to our already existing hair woes. These can lead to dirt build up, drying out of hair and scalp, increased susceptibility to infections on the scalp. Cover your hair with an umbrella or a hat. Even your dupatta will do, or you can also use sun protecting hair cream or serum.
7. Choose A Satin Pillo Cover
Sleeping using satin pillow covers is known to reduce hair breakage due to friction. Cotton and other materials are quite rough in texture. Due to which they also cause more friction against your hair.
8. Oil Massage Is Necessary
Oiling your scalp is actually very effective and good for hair. It helps to keep hair shiny and healthy and also increases hair growth. But always remember that dripping oil from your hair will only need you to use more shampoo which strips out more of your natural oils no matter how mild it is.
9. Comb Your Hair Carefully
Combing hair is a sure shot way to increase the lustre of your hair. It spreads the natural oils through the length of your hair. But do not overdo this. It can cause breakage.
10. Cold Water Cleansing
Use cold water for washing your hair. It will probably increase the chances of falling sick but hot water affects hair the same way as heat styling methods do. Cold does not exactly mean freezing cold, but you can use water at room temperature instead.
