But experts in haircare think that with proper haircare, the dream of healthy tresses can be transformed into reality. Discover in this article a curated list of top tips for haircare. After all, it one of your most precious gifts.
Wash Your Tresses Regularly
Regularly washing your locks means that there is no dirt and extra oil on your scalp and hair. The correct frequency, though, depends on your type of hair and personal preferences. Limit your washing to twice a week if you have extremely dry tresses. Washing your hair on alternating days will help if you have an oily scalp.
Chemical Free Shampoos
All the environmental factors that harm your locks really can’t be managed, but what you can control is the kind of shampoos that you use. The lower the number of chemicals in the shampoo, the healthier your hair would be. Go for gentle shampoos to match your form of tresses.
In shampoos, sulphates and parabens are used for lathering and preservation, but they can cause irritation of the skin over time and increase the risk of hormonal disruption.
Ingredients that make the hair fall straight and manageable are used in your conditioner. It protects your hair against heat styling and environmental aggressors. It can, however, be applied only to the tips of the hair and not to your scalp. Be sure to thoroughly rinse it off after use, as well.
Dry Your Hair, Naturally
We know, blow drying makes your hair as lovely as your on-screen idol’s. But excessive heat styling can harm the scalp of your tresses. Limit it if you have to style, to important events. The easiest way to go is to air dry or towel dry after shampooing. Never sleep on wet hair or comb it right away. Harsh rubbing with a towel can damage your hair cuticles. Hey, be gentle.
Oil Your Locks Correctly
Pre-shampoo procedures such as oiling and massaging stimulate the scalp’s blood circulation, relax the muscles, maximise shine and nourish the follicles. It also restores moisture content, helps the growth of your locks and repairs split ends. You can pick between coconut oil, almond oil, castor oil, olive oil, and the like. Also, stop using mineral oil.
Use wide-toothed comb
Wet hair is brittle and vulnerable to breakage. Let your hair dry and then brush your hair using a wide-toothed comb. A comb of this kind avoids damage to your hair.
Regularly Cut Your Locks
To get rid of split ends, cut your locks every 6-8 weeks. When the locks is damaged due to heat styling, pollution, smoking, stress, and so on, split ends form. Magically, trimming would not make the tresses grow faster. At the scalp stage, growth occurs, but trimming maintains healthy tresses.
Drink More Water
The secret to well-balanced and healthy hair is internal hydration combined with external hydration. You can use hydrating haircare products and oils, but it ensures good hair health by drinking at least 3 litres of water per day.
As long as we write about haircare and skincare, we will continue to echo “you are what you eat.” Your locks is made of amino acids and proteins. To grow well and sustain itself, it requires the correct nutrition. Some of the many excellent foods for healthy follicles are eggs, fruit , nuts, fish, green leafy vegetables, sweet potatoes.
Much as sunlight affects your skin harmfully, it also relates to your tresses. Harsh sun rays will strip moisture from your hair over time, leaving it dry, brittle, and damaged. Using hats to shield your locks from this harm when you step out. If you are in a swimming pool, cover your head with caps. Chlorinated water is bad for your tresses.
Use Hair Bands
We love to flaunt our open tresses, but to restrict exposure to environmental aggressors, we use bands. Using ties made of cotton instead of plastic ones. When creating a ponytail or some other hairstyle, don’t pull your tresses too close.
Use A Wrap Or Old T-shirt To Dry
This one is new. Without causing damage, your t-shirt can be used to dry your wet tresses. Traditional towels are hard on the cuticles of your locks and weaken your hair over time. From now on, save your soft, old t-shirts!
