Our hair is our crowning glory and who would not want this crown to shine bright? The quality of our hair depends on many factors like genetics, the region you stay in, the pollution around you and also diet and nutritional consumption. However, if
proper care is taken, we can achieve the healthy and shinier hair we would love to flaunt.
As I said earlier, a lot of factors in and around us affect the quality of our hair. But we can follow some simple steps and measures to make sure that they are taken care of and not damaged easily.
Easy steps to healthier, fuller and shinier hair
So, let’s see how one can have their mane healthier and shinier than before.
The natural ingredients that our hair needs to stay healthy include protein. So, make it a part of your diet. Food items like poultry, fish, eggs, beans and low-fat dairy can help you with it. A diet which lacks sufficient protein can result in damaged, brittle and weak hair quality.
Zinc is another element that is essential to avoid hair fall and breakage. Healthy nuts like Brazil nuts, almonds, cashews and walnuts can help you with the required zinc for your tresses. Also, food items like vegetables, green leafy veggies, fruits and
ample water can help you to meet your required zinc levels.
To have a healthy scalp, Omega 3 Fatty Acid is beneficial as it stimulates follicles and sebaceous glands. The other source of Omega 3 is cottage cheese, flax seeds, yoghurt and cereals. Also, cold water fish like salmon and sardines can be counted as a source of Omega 3.
Personal hygienic habits
Like everything else, even our hair and scalp get damaged by pollution and the air around us. Regular wash is a must to keep them clean and healthy. But again, when and how many times to wash depends on the quality of one’s hair. If you have an oily scalp and your hair tends to look sticky, wash it frequently. While people with dry hair may wash it once or twice a week.
Hair Products and their ingredients:
There is an array of hair care range available in the market with alluring ads which promise healthy and shinier hair. But, don’t be fooled by what you see. Choose your products wisely and as per your hair quality and requirements like oily, dry or dandruff. Read the content of the products and avoid those which have harsh chemicals. Always remember, an expensive product doesn’t mean it’s the best.
One essential step which many tend to ignore is conditioning. For healthier shinier hair, a good conditioner is a must after shampooing. Again, not all conditioners work for all hair types, so choose the product that meets your requirement.
This is a step which is important to avoid breakage and damage to your hair. The number of times one washes their hair depends on its quality but how your treat it after a wash is crucial too. Wet hair is more susceptible to damage so any harsh action like rubbing it excessively can lead to the breakage of hair. Some care that you can take during and post-wash are:
- Avoid very hot or very cold water for hair wash
- Apply enough shampoo to cover the hair. Don’t overuse the products.
- Use a wide-toothed comb to remove tangles
- Refrain from over-combing wet hair
Hair Styling and Colouring
We all want to be in vogue and colour and style our hair frequently. But this can cause lasting damage to the quality of hair. Split ends, rough and dry hair, and breakage are all forms of damage that your hair goes through with regular heating irons and chemicals from hair colouring. Some hair care tips are;
- Avoid using heating products daily.
- Start with a low heat setting and gradually increase it.
- Allow hair to dry naturally and avoid blow drying regularly.
- Restrict hair colouring to once a year.
- Chop off those tresses at timely intervals to keep hair healthy and avoid split ends.
- Oil massage is our traditional and age-old practice to improve hair and scalp health. So make sure to do it regularly.
