Hair forms the most essential aspect of beauty. Be it a female or male, hair enhances a person’s personality, boosts confidence and improves the overall appearance. Eating healthy nutritious food and maintaining proper hygiene improves the density, quality, strength and growth of hair. At the same time, it is essential to take proper care of hair so that you do not come across common issues related to hair like dryness, hair fall, dandruff, split ends, thinning, breakage, premature graying etc. Here are a few hair care tips that will help you maintain healthy, shinny, smooth and strong hair this summer.
Proper and regular hair wash
Washing hair with mild and good quality shampoo is often recommended. It helps to keep your scalp and hair clean, thereby avoiding most hair problems effectively. It is also necessary to wash your hair regularly, but not very frequently as there is depletion of natural oils with frequent wash thus leaving your hair dull and dry. However, it is a good idea to keep your scalp clean by washing it twice a week.
Use chemical free shampoo
Use high quality shampoos that do not contain harmful chemicals like sulfur or paraben. Sulfates are added for lather while parabens are added for preserving that causes irritation in eyes and skin. Thus, stay away from shampoos that contain these chemicals.
Proper conditioner after hair wash
It is very necessary to condition your hair after every hair wash as the hard water these days often damage the natural hair protein. Moreover, the hair that are color treated or that are chemically treated need extra moisturizing and need to be hydrated. Thus, deep conditioning is the best way to protect your color treated or chemical treated hair.
Your hair needs moisturizer just like your skin, so it is necessary to oil your hair regularly so that it remains strong and shines with health. Massaging your scalp with warm oil at least twice a week strengthens the roots and provides desired moisture to your hair roots thus improving its quality and thickness. Coconut oil, castor oil, almond oil, olive oil and essential oil mixed in proper proportions can be applied for better results. Just apply a few hours before hair wash and see the effects.
Avoid chemical treatments and hair colors
As much as possible stay away from hair treatments like smoothening and straightening or re-bonding as these treatments break the natural bonds of your hair which makes your hair weak, dry and brittle. Although these treatments give a beautiful look at first, but later it will surely damage your hair. Use hair colors that are ammonia free and only if necessary. Branded products do not contain high amount of ammonia, hence highly recommended.
Care after hair wash
If possible dry your hair naturally under the sun or simply towel dry. Avoid using dryers and other equipment that gives out heat to dry your hair. Never brush your hair while still wet. Use a wide tooth comb to detangle your hair, brushing will add to brittleness and further create split ends.
