LOVE YOUR MANE AS YOU LOVE YOURSELFSoilscents
Your hair is 90% of your selfie.” Whoever said that knows what it means to have good hair, bad hair, good-looking hair, mousy hair, lively hair, ready-to-click hair and hide-me hair.
In these days filled with selfie-dictated moments, hair indeed needs some high-resolution care. Even if you do not want to stay in the frame and pout or flip your mane, those stresses need nourishment and some pampering too.
You might get confused about how to make the hair look voluminous every single day, how to make those strands stronger and how to make them grow. To keep hair problems at bay, and prevent any kind of damage to your tresses, here are a few tips for a good start.
- Pick the right shampoo and conditioner.
The hair products shelf at the store is indeed a sight to behold. And you might be tempted to try a new one, especially a brand endorsed by a celebrity. But remember, nobody knows your hair better than you. So, choose one that best suits your hair type. If you have dry hair, there is no need to experiment with a shampoo meant for oily hair.
- Do check the ingredients too.
Stay away from chemical-rich products and pick a shampoo, conditioner or serum that has natural ingredients.
- Eat healthy for your hair
What you eat shows in your hair too. So, there should be enough fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, protein such as fish and chicken and lean red meat. Increase your water intake too. Dehydration means dry and lifeless hair with shunted growth. Cut down on junk food. You can also choose a supplement after consulting with your dietician or doctor.
- Avoid extreme heat and the use of chemicals
It has become essential to use dryers, straighteners and curling tongs to style the hair every day. But they also have adverse effects on hair health in the long term. The hair could be too dry or brittle with split ends, and severe hair loss could be a problem too. Reduce the use of styling equipment that uses high heat. You should avoid hairstyles that pull the hair tight into knots or braids. They might look good but eventually, lead to hair fall and thinning.
And, do protect your hair well while swimming. Chlorine in swimming pool waters can damage your hair and make it dry and dull. Even the brushes and combs you use should be hair-friendly.
- Avoid stress as much as possible
A difficult idea in today’s world, but your body and hair will thank you for managing your days without extreme stress. It is highly beneficial for hair growth when you are not worrying too much and pulling your hair in frustration.
- Give your hair a break- from products
Your hair too needs some pampering and time for rejuvenation. All those chemical-rich products can create pressure on your tresses so keep a watch on what you put them through. Give the hair time to regenerate itself by reducing the use of products for a few days.
