Having healthy looking hair is not difficult but it does take time, effort and a desire to have hair that is great-looking and also healthy.
Good Nutrition a Must!
One way to have great looking hair is to eat healthy foods such as fresh fruits and vegetables, lean protein and whole grains. In addition, it is also important to get plenty of vitamin C, iron, fatting acids and zinc. These vitamins will strengthen, repair and grow healthy hair.
Keep your Stress Low
Another way to have healthy hair is to keep stress out of your life as much as possible. Stress can, in some cases, cause hair loss, so do what you can to overcome the stresses you have in your life. Ways to do this are biking, meditation or other forms of exercise and relaxation.
Gently wash your Hair
Keeping your hair clean is another way to have healthy looking skin. Some say that it is important to wash your hair no more than once a day and at the least, once a week. In addition, some say that it helps to use a softer kind of shampoo or one that has a medicinal effect, especially if you have a sensitive scalp. Keep in mind that you can prevent hair loss by not styling it in a way that harms your scalp such as keeping the heat level on your hair dryer low and by being gentle when styling your hair in a ponytail.
Using a Conditioner helps
Another way to keep your hair healthy is by using a conditioner. Most hair experts agree that using a conditioner every time you shampoo your hair is an effective way to keep your hair shiny and healthy looking.
Gently Brush your Hair
Brushing your hair too much can irritate your scalp and create split ends. Most importantly, once you come out of the shower, gently squeeze your hair between the towel. Be careful not to rub your hair because this can make your hair dull and brittle. Then, brush you hair gently and afterwards let your hair dry naturally.
Some may not know it but having your hair trimmed on a regular basis can get rid of split ends and make your hair look even and more attractive.
Be careful with Dyes
It is important to note that dyeing your hair can damage and dry-out your hair. If you do dye your hair, don’t do it too often and when possible, take a break from dyeing. Your hair will respond by being less dry and brittle and will have a healthier look to it. In addition, avoid curling, bleaching or perming your hair. All of these methods dry out hair and over time can cause problems with your scalp.
Another tip that will help keep your hair healthy is to massage your scalp while you’re in the shower. Massaging your hair will help to stimulate the growth of hair and give you shiny and healthy looking hair. Some have also found that by rinsing your hair with vinegar, you can help repair hair that is damaged and also break up dandruff. Be sure to use Apple cider vinegar when using vinegar for this process.
To conclude, maintaining healthy hair is not hard to do. All it takes is time, using a gentle shampoo and conditioner, being cautious when swimming or exercising outdoors and being careful not to use harsh products on your hair.
