In this blog post I will be sharing some tips for Healthy Hair. Recently, I had a few technical glitches on my blog and hence I was not able to post regularly on my blog. Having solved them, I have a regular schedule now, where I will be posting every Monday-Wednesday-Friday-Sunday (every alternate day). I also have some exciting series coming up, so stay connected on all my social media links to know more about it.
Coming back to this blog post, I had thick and wavy hair right from my childhood, but due to improper routine and time constraint (since I had a 9-5 job and had to travel for 4 hours everyday), my hair started thinning. When I wanted to grow my hair back, it wasn’t easy as I thought it would. I spent a lot of money on hair care products and I also did many treatments in hair salons but it was of no use. Then I started concentrating on DIY hair care products, masks and started maintaining a healthy routine for my hair and I did see a change. So here, I am listing down a few points, which I follow on a day to day basis which helped me grow my hair back.
1. Massage your hair and scalp with oil
I usually use double boiling method to heat coconut oil, once the oil is warm, I apply it on my scalp and massage for 10-15 mins. Then I leave it on my scalp for 1 hour and rinse it with mild shampoo followed by a conditioner. Make sure that the oil is not too hot or too cold, it should just be warm enough. You can use any oil that works best for you. Massage regularly, at least once a week, to see best results.
2. Drink lots of water
Keeping yourself hydrated, helps in maintaining healthy skin, hair and body. Make sure that you drink adequate water to keep yourself hydrated, especially during summer.
3. Eat Healthy
Diet plays an important role in maintaining healthy hair. I could see a visible difference in the texture of my hair when I started to include a lot of green leafy vegetables and dairy products to my diet. Also make sure to cut down caffeine, and include lots of fresh fruits and vegetables in your diet.
4. Avoid Bleach/color
I know this sounds crazy. But I would recommend avoiding bleach and coloring products on your hair, because it does more damage than anything else. If you need to color your hair, then I would suggest you to get advice from proper experts regarding the after care of your colored hair. I have seen so many people having a severe hair fall after coloring/bleaching hair.
5. Trim when necessary
Trimming is necessary to get rid of the split ends that you develop while growing your hair long. Split ends only makes your hair look thinner and does no good to your hair. Trimming every 4-5 months will definitely help in hair growth.
6. Use wide tooth comb
Never detangle your hair while it is still wet. Always detangle when your hair has partially dried or fully dried. And also use a wide tooth comb, preferably a wooden comb, to detangle your hair.
7. Know your needs and what works best for your hair
We all have different types of hair. Some have dry hair, frizzy hair, oily scalp, dry scalp, curly/straight hair. There are different products available in the market for different types of hair. See what suits best for your hair, read reviews on a product to know more about other’s experience on the product and then decide.
8. Avoid Heat styling tools
Never use heat styling tools on a regular basis. If you have to use them, then always use a heat protectant spray to protect your hair from damage. Styling tools cause more damage to your hair and makes your hair brittle and also burns your hair.
9. Brush your hair
I usually brush my hair in the morning and during night to increase blood circulation and to avoid tangles. I use the roots wooden brush to brush my hair and I have seen good results.
10. Avoid washing frequently
Never wash your hair everyday. Washing your hair everyday removes the natural oils from your hair, making your hair dry and frizzy. I usually wash my hair twice a week during winters and once in two days during summers, because during summers, dirt and pollution gets accumulated on your hair thereby damaging it even more.
