Women and men suffer from the problem of hair-loss. If you take care of your hair well, hair-loss will not be a problem that affects you. Hair is made of protein, so keeping a healthy diet and good hygiene is an essential part of maintaining luscious locks. Apart from that, taking care of your hair is not a difficult task and does not take too much of effort, here are some tips on the best way to maintain your hair.
1. Limited brushing:
People often tend to brush their hair a lot. Although it might seem like brushing makes the hair smooth and less tangled, too much brushing will lead to hair loss. The bristles of the brush tug at your hair from the root and because of this brushing your hair too often almost guarantees hair-loss. Brushing should be done only twice a day.
It is important you trim your hair on a regular basis. Trimming is the answer to perfect hair without split ends. If you trim the split-ends off often, your hair will remain split-end damage-free.
3. Limited dyeing:
Hair dye can be very harmful for your hair. Even though the colors look beautiful on your hair they damage it heavily because they contain a lot of chemicals. Your hair and scalp are extremely fragile and so when they are attacked by chemicals their functions get compromised, leaving them irreparably damaged. Coloring the hair once in a while is alright, but dyeing it too often is a free ticket to damaged hair.
4. Controlled hair-washes:
Wash your hair sparingly with good quality shampoo, washing it too often will cause hair loss because the chemicals in the shampoo will become too much for the scalp and hair to handle. The best shampoos are those that do not contain sulfates or parabens, both of these chemicals aren’t good for the hair and the environment so you should always avoid shampoos that contain them. Choose a shampoo that is best suited for your hair and use it sparingly.
Conditioners are very good for the hair and should be used every time you shampoo. You should purchase a good quality conditioner based on the type of damage treatment your hair requires and make sure that you do not purchase one that contains excess protein for excess protein makes the hair brittle.
6. Natural drying:
Blow dying the hair makes it look beautiful, but the truth to the matter is that the heat from the dryer causes serious damage to the hair and scalp. Because of this, it is always better to dry your hair naturally. You should also make sure not to brush your hair while it is wet, because wet hair is most vulnerable. If at all brushing of the hair is required while it is wet, use a wide tooth comb on your hair, gently.
Following the above mentioned tips will help reduce hair-loss and keep your hair damage free.
