Know when to wash
People often make the mistake of thinking they need to wash their hair daily, but washing it too often can really dry out their hair, or weigh it down with product. For most people, washing your hair twice a week is enough.
Always use a good conditioner after you shampoo. Conditioner will moisturize your hair, while making it softer and more manageable. It will also make it easier to comb your hair after a shower, thus causing less damage.
Use a comb
Wet hair is more prone to damage than dry hair; it is more elastic and more prone to breakage. Because hair is most fragile when it is wet, you shouldn’t rip a brush through it after washing. Instead, spray some detangles on it, and then use a wide-tooth comb to remove tangles and minimize breakage.
Use a hair dryer sparingly.
Frequent use of a hair dryer can dry your hair, causing it to break and split. Try to limit the use of your hairdryer as much as possible, and let your hair air dry instead. If you use a hair dryer, don’t keep it too close to your hair, as this will burn your hair.
This is probably the most effective and important way of keeping your hair healthy. Vitamins, protein, and iron found in certain foods are very essential for hair growth. The hair cells need these nutrients for growth.
They also give hair its natural sheen. We recommend that you incorporate iron-rich foods such as fish, beans, soybeans and vegetables into your daily diet. You should also include protein-rich sources, such as milk, peas, and lentils.
Drink plenty of water daily to reinforce the work you are doing with your diet. Keeping yourself hydrated means healthy skin, nails, and of course, hair.
Above are 5 ways to keep your hair healthy. Remember applying these methods regularly to keep your hair healthy and shiny every day.
