Tips for healthy, lustrous hair

It is said that hair is the crowning glory of every human being – be it a woman or a man. Just like your skin, hair requires special attention too. Thick, shiny hair is also an indicator of a person’s overall health. Even change in weather can lead to rapid changes in hair health.

Here are some tips to keep your hair looking healthy and lustrous in every season.

Eat Healthy

You are what you eat. If you’re maintaining a healthy, balanced diet, it will reflect on the health of your hair and skin. Vitamins are essential for the growth of hair and cuticles. Ensure that you get the necessary vitamins through sources such as citrus fruits and green vegetables. Also, drink enough water to stay hydrated and keeping your hair healthy.

Get Regular Oil Massages

Washing the hair regularly brings down the oil content of hair. It is important to maintain the oil levels by massaging.  Oil massage once a week with warm oil can be done to prevent hair breakage and strengthening the hair. It improves blood circulation and stimulates blood flow. It is better to leave the oil on hair for at least two hours before washing. Using almond oil, olive oil or coconut oil gives good results.

 Learn the art of combing

You must be wondering why we’re calling combing an art. Something as simple and mundane as putting a comb to your hair makes a world of difference. Avoid combing your hair while wet as it tends to break more easily as compared to dry hair. Use your fingers while detangling and use the right comb. Usually, wide-toothed comb with sift bristles are suitable for all types of hair.

Trim it regularly

Regularly trimming hair helps in removing split ends and makes hair grow faster. Pollution and use to styling tools on a regular basis make your hair prone to split ends and damaged cuticles. Trim the lower portion of your hair every six to eight weeks for good health of your hair.

Skip hot, go cold

Heat tends to damage the cuticles of hair and result in a dull look. Even hot tools such as curling irons or dryers must not be used excessively. Try to stop over-styling your hair and opt for natural methods like towel drying. While washing hair in shower, finish off the rinse with cool water to help maintain the hair texture and shine.

Use the right products

With so many different hair care products available in the market, choosing the right product might seem a difficult task. Shampoos and conditioners are loaded with chemicals and some of these can damage your hair. To have healthy, lustrous hair, choose the products that suit you. Avoid shampoo with alcohol as they tend to strip the hair of its natural moisture.
