Hair is one many assets that we value only after we have lost them. If you don’t want to be one of those who value their locks after losing them, start taking care of them from a very young age. Listed below are some simple hair care tips that you can follow without pushing yourself too hard.
The best way to take care of your hair is to go natural. Give your hair some break by letting go off some of your favorite hair care products and allowing your hair to breathe a little. Try this for a couple of weeks and you would love the results. Over the counter shampoos, conditioners and hair styling sprays and serums all do irreparable damage to your hair. So, if you want your hair to remain thick, strong and healthy for long, simply go natural. Use natural hair care products such as aloe vera gel, coconut oil, yogurt and other plant extracts. If you can’t avoid shampoos and conditioners, better go for herbal products, since they contain no or very less chemicals.
Avoid Blow Drying:
It is strongly recommended to let your hair air dry. Exposing your hair to too much heat causes a great degree of damage to the hair follicles as well as the strands. Also avoid using curling or straightening tools as their excessive heat can damage your hair making them prone to breakage. And if necessary, choose the lowest heat setting and do not let the tool remain in contact with your hair for more than 3 minutes. Similarly, if blow drying is totally unavoidable, choose the lowest setting and blow-dry your hair while keeping the dryer at a safe distance. Heat from blow dryer and other hair styling tools not only damages the hair but the scalp as well.
Massage your Scalp with Coconut Oil:
Coconut oil is not only a key ingredient of natural skincare regimen but also comprises a very effective natural conditioner for the hairs and the scalp. Besides, conditioning the strands and making them shinier and healthier, it also strengthens the locks. If you are seeking an economic and risk-free tonic for your hair, put your trust in coconut oil and you would not be disappointed. Its natural lubricating properties nourish the hair from root to tip. In addition to that, essential nutrients in coconut oil also strengthen hair follicles thus preventing and even reversing hair loss in women.
Get your Hair Trimmed Every Month:
Trimming is the easiest, simplest and the cheapest way of strengthening your locks. Getting your locks trimmed just a few centimeters every month will help keep them thicker and healthier. Also they will be less prone to breakage and split ends. Most people think that getting a trim means going to a hair stylist every month, which, we totally understand, can be quite expensive for many. You can do the trimming thing at home quite easily, and for that all you need is a fine tooth comb and pair of scissors. However, make sure you are able to cut your hair straight, otherwise let a professional do his job.
There is a common misconception that shampooing your hair daily is the key to shiny and smooth locks. But the reality is totally different. Excessive shampooing deprives your hairs off their natural oil, making them dry and brittle. Shampooing twice a week, or at most every other day is good but even for that make sure you oil your hair before you shampoo.
Avoid Brushing Wet Hair
Wet hairs are thrice more prone to breakage than dry hairs. So, it is strongly recommended to avoid brushing them while they are still wet. After washing your hair, let them air dry completely and then brush them and style them the way you wet. If you absolutely need to brush your wet hair, use a wide toothed comb, while de-tangling them carefully with your hands.
Just like your skin, your hairs also speak about what you eat. So if you want your hairs to look strong and healthy, eat all the essential nutrients that your body utilizes for hair growth. These include iron, protein, vitamins A, E and C, omega 3 fatty acids, biotin, zinc and selenium. Make sure you eat a balanced diet containing a healthy mix of all of these nutrients.
