Healthy daily hair care regime can go a long way for your hair. It’s not rocket science and it isn’t too difficult as all you need to do is to develop good habits that will help you keep the hair you’ve always dreamed of.
# 1 – Wash your hair when needed.
There are so many mixed ideas on how often we should wash our hair. Everyday? Once in two days? Once a week? Don’t wash at all? Firstly, determine your scalp type. The type of scalp you have is good enough to tell you when it’s best to wash your hair.
Do you have oily scalp?
People with oily scalp would find their center T-zone a little oily by midday and the hair roots limp out when the day is over. Massage and wash your hair daily.
Do you have dry scalp?
People with dry scalp would usually have a somewhat drier skin on their skin and the hair is more susceptible to breakage. You may need to consider nourishing your hair with adding some oil into your routine and eating more foods with nutrients. You do not need to wash your hair daily, perhaps 2 or 3 times a week, with minimal amount of shampoo.
Do you have a normal scalp?
Lucky you! People with normal scalp would usually have no problems with skipping a day of shampoo. When you find that your hair needs a wash, maybe a little limp, just give your hair some wash. The strategy is to keep the scalp clean and hygiene is very essential.
Tip is to use shampoo that is suitable for your scalp type. Apply hair conditioner and hair mask to the roots of your hair when needed to keep hair smooth and away from tangles.
# 2 – Eat Right.
As cliche as it sounds, eating right is completely necessary, not just for your health but hair too! A healthy, balanced diet that includes fruits, vegetables, and rich protein such as eggs, nuts and dairy products can help you to get healthier hair. It is also highly recommended that you add vitamins to your daily diet such as vitamin A. C. E, marine protein (Mireica), biotin or fish-oil to make your hair thicker and stronger.
# 3 – Head Massage.
Head massages are the easiest and simplest hair care regime you can do for yourself anywhere at any time of the day! All you need is your fingertips, spread your fingers, place them on your forehead and press them gently in circular motion. Move on and press gently the top of your scalp and then the back of your scalp. Head massages are a great way to release tension and to stimulate blood circulation that encourages hair growth.
# 4 – Reduce styling with heat & chemicals.
Imagine this. While your hair is trying to survive on your scalp, you stretch and apply chemicals on it to make it look good. Though it may look good (temporarily), it’s ability to thrive is greatly affected. If you’re already battling with hair loss, we highly suggest that you give your hair a little break and spend some time to nourish your body and hair before you begin styling your hair with chemicals. Practice healthy hair hygiene tips, such as keeping your scalp clean every day, apply treatments that gives your hair a healthy boosts of good nutrients,Tricovel, to keep your scalp healthy and stimulate healthy hair growth. Well, wouldn’t you agree that with great volume comes great hair?
# 5 – Brush/Comb your hair while it is…. dry.
One of the most common mistakes that people do is to comb their hair when it’s wet. Our hair is most vulnerable when it is wet, therefore, only use a wide-tooth comb to comb while your hair is dry. If you are trying to untangle your hair, do apply a leave-on-conditioner to help you loosen up your tangles first.
# 6 – Exercise!
If you are doing all the right things for your hair, but still losing your hair, you’re probably not… exercising! Exercise, the most important ingredient to healthy, growing hair. Why?
- Because stress stresses your hair, exercising helps to relieve stress!
- When you exercise, toxins are released from your body and sweat helps to unclog your hair follicles. When your hair follicles are unclogged, it allows space for new hair to grow!
- Exercising increases blood flow to your body, skin and scalp, bringing in adequate nutrients and oxygen to your body that would provide nourishment to your hair roots, promoting healthy hair growth.
