It is one thing to have a beautiful crown called hair and it’s another thing to know how to keep the crown stable, shiny and we’ll polished.
The hair is one of the beautiful features of a woman and it’s only fair that it gets the right treatment, food and attention for it to grow beautifully and healthily.
For a beautiful and healthier hair, these are the ‘do-s’ that must be observed.
1. Wash Your Hair Regularly
Washing your hair regularly ensures that your scalp and hair is free of dirt and excess oil. However, the right frequency depends on your hair type and personal preferences. If you have extremely dry hair, limit your washing to twice a week. If you have an oily scalp, washing your hair on alternate days can help.
2. Use Chemical Free Shampoos
You can control the kind of shampoos you use. The lesser the number of chemicals in your shampoo, the healthier your hair. Go for gentle shampoos that suit your hair type. Sulfates and parabens in shampoos are used for lathering and preserving respectively, but they can cause skin irritation over time and increase the risk of hormonal disruptions.
3. Condition Correctly
Your conditioner contains ingredients that make the hair fall straight and manageable. It protects your hair from environmental factors and heat styling. However, it should be applied only on the tips of the hair and not on your scalp. Also, make sure to rinse it off thoroughly after applying .
4. Dry Your Hair Naturally
We know. Blow drying makes your hair as beautiful as that of your favorite celebrity. But excessive heat styling can damage your hair scalp. Limit it to important events, if you have to style. Air drying is the best way to go. Never sleep in wet hair or comb wet hair.
5. Oil Your Hair Properly
Pre-shampoo treatments like oiling and massaging improve blood circulation on the scalp, relax your muscles, boost shine and nourish the hair. It also restores moisture content, enables hair growth and repairs split ends. You can choose from coconut oil, almond oil, olive oil, castor oil and the likes. Avoid using mineral oil on your hair.
6. Use A Wide-toothed Comb
Wet hair is fragile and prone to breakage. Let your hair dry and then use a wide-toothed comb to brush your hair. This kind of a comb prevents damage to it.
7. Trim Your Hair Regularly
Trim your hair every 6-8 weeks to get rid of split ends. Split ends form when the hair is damaged due to heat styling, pollution, smoking, stress and so on. Trimming does not magically make the hair grow faster. Hair growth happens at the scalp level, but trimming ensures healthy hair.
8. Drink More Water
Internal hydration coupled with external hydration is the key to well-balanced and healthy hair. You may be using hydrating products and oils, but drinking at least 3 litres of water everyday ensures good hair health.
9. Eat Healthy
Your hair is made of proteins and amino acids. It needs the right nutrition to grow well and maintain itself. Eggs, berries, nuts, fish, green leafy vegetables, sweet potatoes are some of the many great foods for healthy hair.
10. Use Hair Bonnets
Just as sunlight has a damaging effect on your skin, it applies to your hair too. Harsh sun rays can remove the moisture from and make it dry, brittle and damaged over the course of time. Use hats when you step out to protect your hair from this damage. Protect it with caps when you are in a swimming pool. Chlorinated water is bad for your hair
Make sure to strictly abide by all the Commandments given for a delightful hair-xperience.
