Healthy Hair Made Easy

Keeping your hair shiny and healthy is quite easy. You really don't need to undergo expensive hair treatments or use the latest hair care product in order to keep your locks vibrant. Here are some tips on how to easily achieve healthy hair:

Go Natural

Many commercial shampoos and conditioners may contain harsh ingredients that can cause hair damage in the long run. Shampoos and conditioners that contain organic or natural ingredients are safer options. Try to look for products that contain these natural ingredients – vitamin E, A, jojoba oil, coconut oil, and wheat germ. These organic substances are known for their nourishing effects on hair. If you want to create your own version of an organic hair treatment, you can combine jojoba oil and rosemary oil and use the mixture when massaging your scalp. This mixture can also be mixed with tea tree oil if your scalp is itchy and flaky. Just make sure that you dilute the essential oils first before applying them directly onto your hair and scalp.

Brush Your Hair Well Before Hitting The Sack

It is a hair care tip that has been passed down from generation to generation – brush your hair one hundred times before you sleep. Proper brushing is essential in keeping your hair healthy because this can remove tangles, dirt, and other particles that may irritate your scalp. Brushing can also promote blood circulation and can regulate the distribution of oils from roots to tips. Just make sure that your hair is dry before brushing it because brushing wet hair can have the opposite effect.

Let Your Hair Dry Naturally

Using blow dryers and other types of heating devices may over-dry your hair, leading to brittle strands that are more prone to damage. As much as possible, air dry your hair instead of using a blow dryer. While your hair is wet, remove tangles by using only a wide-toothed comb. Never brush wet hair since this could lead to breakage.

Pamper Your Hair Once In A While

Your hair is constantly exposed to harmful elements such as heat, humidity, extreme weather, and pollution. Moreover, you may sometimes use tight hair accessories to keep your locks in place. One way to maintain healthy hair is to pamper your locks every now and then. If your body deserves a relaxing massage as a treat every now and then, so does your scalp and hair. You don't need to go to an expensive salon and opt for a pricey treatment. You can simply concoct your own mixture and use it when massaging your scalp and hair. Properly diluted essential oils that are both fragrant and have antiseptic properties such as tea tree oil are good bets when creating a simple homemade hair spa treatment.

Trim Your Hair Regularly

Regular hair trimming is one good way of getting rid of stubborn split ends. Getting a haircut can also promote the growth of healthier strands, leading to more vibrant and plump-looking locks. Once in a while, you can opt for a hot oil treatment after getting a trim since this technique can keep your hair shiny and moisturized.

Maintain A Healthy Diet

Eating lots of healthy food has a good effect on the overall health of your hair and scalp. A diet rich in vitamins and minerals provides your hair and scalp with the essential nutrients that can promote the growth of fresh and healthy strands. Drinking lots of water is also a good habit of maintaining a healthy hair and scalp.

Avoid Using Tight Hair Accessories Every Day

Ponytail bands, headbands, clips, and other hair accessories can help you keep up with the trends. However, these hair accessories can sometimes cause too much pressure on your hair especially when used too tightly. Tight ponytails can sometimes cut off circulation, leading to locks that are dull and limp. If you have to use a hair accessory, make sure that it is not too tight or you remove it after a couple of hours to let your hair rest. Avoid using clips and bands on wet hair. To keep your crowning glory healthy and vibrant, it's best to just literally let your hair down every now and then.
