How to Stop Damaging your Hair


Maintaining a good hygiene is very important for all aspects of human health. It is equally true for the follicular health. In order to have good and healthy hair, it is imperative that good hygiene is maintained. We shall look into some ways in which small changes can help your hair and help avoid hair loss and thinning.

Keeping the Scalp Clean

This is the first thing to do. Shampoo at least twice a week. Ensure that you use a good quality shampoo that has minimum chemicals in it. If you can use an organic shampoo, it is all the better. Make sure that you clean the scalp itself and not just the hair as many people tend to do. Using normal temperature water instead of warm or hot water can help fight dandruff as well.

Drying Hair After a Shower

Drying your hair after a shower should be carefully done. Do not try to push the matter too much and avoid scrubbing the towel against your hair. This can cause breakage in the hair. Use towel gently and try to let them dry on their own. This will take longer but it helps the hair in the longer run.  Avoid too much blow drying since it has many ill effects on the hair.

The Combing Process

Comb gently especially if the hair have moisture in your hair. Use a comb that has wide teeth which helps in untangling hair and does not stress the hair out. Comb gently since rigorous combing will cause breakage. Ensure that you keep your comb clean and wash it once every week.


Massage your scalp regularly with oils such as coconut, almond and olive. They offer very healthy nutrients to the scalp and the massaging itself improves the blood flow. This is a tried and tested process over several thousand years and works very well.

Home Remedies

There are many home remedies that are available for improving the health of the hair. Most of these are based on different combinations of products you already have in your pantry. Use of yogurt, lemon, eggs and essential oils is quite common in these remedies. You can try some of these to give rejuvenation to your scalp and hair.
