6 Best Haircare Tips For Healthy & Beautiful Hair
Having a bad hair day? We understand how that can ruin a person’s day. But it’s also a proven fact (we think) that having a great hair day can improve your mood immensely, and you’ll be the envy of everyone you come across!
That’s why having a proper haircare regimen, or knowing what is good for your hair and what’s not is really important. So, here we’ve gathered the best haircare tips that will give you healthy, glossy hair!
1. Washing Your Hair
Over-washing your hair is one of the major haircare sins that most people in the Western world commit. And yes, washing your hair once every day is too often! Not only is it a waste of water, but it is extremely damaging to your hair. Water actually just ends up stripping the natural oils in your hair and drying it out. Washing it 2-3 times a week is plenty, and make sure to always use cold water when you do!
2. Shampoo Care
Make sure to pick shampoo that is suitable for your hair type. Different kinds of shampoo are made with different ingredients, and they do not always suit everyone’s hair. Once you find a brand that works, stick to it! But also make sure to only shampoo every 2 or 3 days, because shampooing every day will cause your hair and scalp to dry out.
3. Minimize Hair Loss
Hair Loss is one of the biggest haircare problems we often come across; not to mention your shower drain gets all clogged up, yuck! One way to minimize hair loss is to brush your hair and get rid of all the knots before you get into the shower. This way, you’ll lose less hair, and it’ll be easier for your hair to dry after. And by no means should you brush your hair when it’s wet, because it’ll cause even more hair to fall out!
4. Coconut Oil
If you’re having trouble with dandruff, coconut oil is something you should definitely try. Coconut oil is good trick that works because it moisturizes your hair, and dandruff often forms due to dryness. Simply rub it into your scalp, leave it on overnight, and wash using shampoo in the morning. Do this a few times and your dandruff should disappear!
5. Air Dry
The best way to dry your hair is by giving it time to air dry by itself. Just squeeze the excess water out and let it chill! Wrapping your hair in a towel or continuous rubbing can cause hair fall and damage. You can also use a hair dryer if your in a hurry; but using hot air all the time isn’t good either, so get yourself a hair dryer that blows hot and cold (room temperature) air. They are cheap and extremely useful!
6. Baking Soda
Baking soda isn’t just good for cooking, its good for your hair too! When using shampoo often, it’s likely that a thin layer of residue builds up. That’s why it’s important to condition your hair every time you shampoo. If that sounds like too much of a hassle, just add a tablespoon of baking soda into your shampoo bottle and it’ll do the trick just fine!
