Avoid the Hair Dryer, Dry Naturally!
The hair dryer is great for getting your hair dried quickly and for having it look nice, but it can be very detrimental to the health of your head. Air drying or towel drying is the better way to make sure that your hair scalp stays healthy and avoids unnecessary damage for you. If you keep the usage of your hair dryer to just important days where you need to be looking your best, your hair is sure to thank you in the long run.
Don’t Forget the Diet!
Drinking plenty of water and eating the right foods can be an important way to keep your hair healthy. Foods that are high in proteins and amino acids, like berries, eggs, and green leafy vegetables are a great way to ensure that your hair is getting the nutrients that it needs to keep healthy. Likewise, making sure that you stay internally hydrated is a great way to keep your hair hydrated -- which is a vital way to keep your hair in great shape.
Keep the Temperature Down
A hot shower can feel great, especially on a chilly day, but hot showers can also strip your hair of important oils and nutrients while leaving your scalp dry and flaky. When you’re washing your hair, take it easy on the hot water, and turn it down to a cooler temperature. As a bonus, a cold shower can also close the pores of your scalp, preventing oil, dirt, and grease from getting into your scalp and creating smoother and shinier hair for you.
Shampoo on the Scalp, Conditioner on the Ends
When you’re washing your hair, different products have different needs. Shampoo is key for your scalp, not just the ends of the hair. If you neglect your scalp, not only do you run the risk of having a flaky scalp or having issues with dandruff, but your hair could also seem coarse. On the flip side, when you condition your hair, it’s important that you focus on the tips of your hair. Some conditioners can make fine hair seem limp, so when you do condition, focusing on the tips of the hair instead of the scalp or length will help in your hair’s look and feel. These are all simple tricks that you can start using to make your hair the best it can be.
