How to Have Healthy Hair
How you wash your hair and the products you use can go a long way toward maintaining smooth and shiny hair. If your hair is dull, frayed, or damaged from the use of dyes and chemicals, you can start right now to get healthier hair. Follow these simple tips to maintain healthy hair.
1.Using healthy washing and styling habits
How often you wash your hair should be based on how much oil your scalp produces. If you have chemically treated hair, your hair may be drier, so you may want to wash it less frequently. As you get older, your scalp makes less oil, so you may not need to shampoo as often. But if you see flakes in your hair, you may not be shampooing enough. This can lead to dandruff and other scalp diseases.
2.Using natural product
To restore your hair’s softness and shine, apply oil to your roots, shaft and especially tips a couple times a week. You can use oil in place of conditioner or after your hair is already dry. Once every few weeks, give yourself a deep conditioning treatment as follows:
- Massage olive oil or almond oil into your hair.
- Cover your hair with a shower cap or plastic wrap.
- Let the oil sit in your hair for 2 hours or overnight.
- Rinse it out with cool water until the water runs clear, then shampoo and condition as normal.
3. Making healthy lifestyle changes
A well-balanced diet with plenty of protein, vitamin B, iron, and omega-3s helps your hair stay as thick and healthy as possible and don’t forget to protect your hair from the elements. Just as you would protect your skin from sun, wind, and cold temperatures, you need to protect your hair as well. If you don’t, it will dry out and become brittle over time.
