Tips for healthy hair

Pat dry

The biggest damage you’re doing to your hair is drying it wrongly. When your hair is wet, it is highly susceptible to damage. To properly towel dry, shake the excess water off and stroke your hair in the direction it grows. Avoid rubbing your hair with the towel.

Blow drying also damages your hair. Excessive blow drying hurts your scalp. Apply a thermal styling spray or detangler before you blow dry.

Brush your hair daily

"Gently brushing your hair [and scalp] before you hop in the shower removes dead skin cells that can clog hair follicles and inhibit new hair growth," Eva Scrivo, founder of the eponymous salon in New York City tells  This action stimulates circulation and brings excess oil down the hair shaft to moisturize ends.

Use lukewarm water

It feels good to take a hot shower. Hot water strips natural oil from your hair and scalp and makes it dry.

Avoid chemical treatments

If you repeatedly color or damage your hair, it may become damaged, dry and dull. You can use the services of a seasoned professional to try such treatments.

Use nutritious shampoo and conditioner

A nutritive shampoo will not only cleanse your hair but adds moisture, elasticity, smoothness, and shine.

Stay healthy

Your hair reflects your overall health condition. Eat a nutritious diet. Include salmon, yellow peppers, eggs, oysters, sweet potatoes, sunflower seeds avocados and almonds in your diet.

 Exercise well, drink plenty of water, get enough sleep and reduce stress in life. It will result in the healthier scalp and great looking hair.

Say no to tight hats

A tight hat or a ponytail can cause traction alopecia. It’s condition where hair is pulled out of the scalp. If you wear it long enough, the damage can become permanent. A tight hat also damages your cuticle.

Maintain a healthy scalp

Use a clarifying shampoo monthly. Treat your scalp with essential oils 2-3 nights a week. Exfoliate regularly. Don’t ignore an itchy and flaky scalp. It’s a sign that your scalp is in distress. If you notice flakes, wash your hair with anti-dandruff shampoo.

Use a formula with 1% zinc pyrithione, like Head & Shoulders Damage Rescue Shampoo.The anti-fungal ingredient helps control overzealous oil production. The dandruff-causing fungus feeds on the oil, according to a recent study in the International Journal of Cosmetic Science.

Keep it trimmed

Keep your hair trimmed regularly to cut off split ends. It will make your hair grow thicker and shinier.

Reduce frizz

Low levels of protein and moisture in your hair can cause frizz. Try to use a good moisturizing conditioner. You can apply a slick, smoothing serum to give your hair shine and more seamless appearance.

The hair is a big part of your appearance. Proper maintenance will make you look more attractive. Follow the above simple guidelines to have gorgeous hair.
