Tip 10: Dry hair cautiously

When it comes to drying hair, it is prudent to be cautious. Avoid rubbing your hair vigorously to dry as the rubbing motion causes hair to break and fall away.  

Tip 11: Oil the scalp frequently

Taking care of your scalp is important and regular oiling of the scalp is good for the hair. A good habit is to apply small amount of oil to your hair frequently and use a gentle shampoo to get rid of the oil. Remember to not over oil your hair as you will need more shampoo which can strip out your natural oil.

Tip 12: Suitable hair masks

Hair masks can prevent damage and protect your hair. However, make sure to find the right hair mask for your hair type. Otherwise, you may even aggravate your hair problem than alleviate it.

Tip 13: Avoid teasing your hair

A good way of protecting your hair texture is to avoid teasing your hair even if it creates a lot of volume.

Tip 14: Your hair prefers cold water

It’s always a good idea to use cold (not freezing) water to wash your hair. Hot water affects hair in the same way as other heat styling approaches. If you don’t have cold water, room temperature water is your next best option.

Tip 15: Use of clarifying shampoo once a month

It’s a good idea to use a clarifying shampoo once every month in order to get rid of any product build up. Keep in mind that shampoo and conditioner tend to lose their effectiveness with product build up. 

Tip 16: Brush effectively

Brushing regularly is key to maintaining healthy hair. This is because brushing spreads out the natural oils through the length of your hair which increases luster. That said, make sure not to overdo on the brushing and avoid using plastic brushes as they cause increased breakage.

Tip 17: Healthy eating

One important way to maintain healthier hair is to have over all good health. This begins with healthy eating. If you are eating right, it will lead to really good and healthy hair. If your diet is missing any essential vitamins, consider taking supplements. Good diet will not only make you feel good but look good as well.

Tip 18: Don’t use too many products

While use of some products can enhance the look and feel of your hair, it’s always best not to use too much product. Maintain the essential use of key products like shampoo, conditioner and serum. That said, if you are able to avoid bottled hair products, go that route. 

Finally, keeping your hair healthy requires effort and the extra loving goes a long way to prolonging beautiful hair. As you care for your hair, remember that if any off the shelf products are no longer suiting your needs, then may be it is time to consider to set up appointment with your hair specialist.
