Keep Them Clean
Women usually stick to the 'washing your hair thrice a week' rule. This is absolutely wrong.According to dermatologists, one must wash their hair as soon as they notice an oily scalp. A clean scalp boosts hair growth. So, you just cannot mark the days on the calendar when you will have a head wash. You can always buy a mild shampoo and wash your hair daily.
Oil, But Not Too Much!
Indulging in a hot oil hair massage is good for the pores over your scalp. But, clogging your scalp with oil 24x7 is the worst way to treat your hair. Our body naturally produces sufficient oil for the roots of the hair. So, you should concentrate more on oiling the tip of the strands instead of the roots. And, even then, if you are going in for a deep scalp oil massage, make sure you rinse off your hair within an hour.
Be Cautious About Chemicals
All the hairsprays and other chemicals that you use for styling your hair are only worsening their condition. The amount of chemical you expose your hair to will ultimately lead to hair thinning. Avoid these products as much as possible. Even your shampoo and conditioner should be as natural as possible.
Refrain From Bleaching
If you want to get your hair coloured for fun, there is no harm in that. But, bleaching them is an absolute no-no. Always get your hair coloured by an expert. Do not expose your hair to these treatments again and again as the chemicals will make your hair dull and brittle. If you want to go for natural colouring, henna is certainly the best option.
Avoid Vigorous Brushing
Your hair is gentle, so do not brush them in a haphazard manner. Vigorous brushing produces static electricity in the hair that makes them weak. So, even if you are in a hurry, be gentle while brushing your hair.
Keep Them Tied Carefully
If you like decorating your hair with pretty pins, then stay away from products that use cheap materials. The material they are made of is bad for the scalp. Also, they usually get tangled in your hair, and irritate the roots. Always look for quality while choosing your hair accessories. Tying your hair too much, and for too long affects the follicles of your hair. Your roots need to breathe. Avoid tying your hair in ponytails or buns for long.
If you have bad sleeping habits, you will never have healthy hair. When you sleep, your body gets enough time to relax and rejuvenate. If you do not sleep for a good 8-10 hours, your body will not get enough time to do justice to your hair.
