Every woman dreams about having long and luscious hair, however we don’t always pay enough attention to our hair and provide it with the proper care it needs.
Having healthy and long hair doesn’t necessarily require going to expensive salons on a regular basis. You simply need to follow these awesome tips and watch the results. Your hair will be thankful and so will you!
- Choose a proper shampoo
As the hair grows, it becomes thinner and more brittle, so you must make sure that the shampoo and conditioner you use do not contain any chemicals. Before you buy them, make sure you read the list of ingredients. If they contain chemicals such as SLS, silicone or sulphates, just steer clear.
- Wash your hair properly
Washing your hair too often can cause more harm than good and really damage your hair. Even if you have greasy hair, washing it too often can cause your scalp to become too dry and even produce more oils than before. According to dermatologists and stylists, washing your hair two to three times a week should do the trick.
- Use cold water to wash your hair
One way to stop your hair from becoming brittle, is to wash it with cold water. We all enjoy a nice hot shower, but if you can handle doing it with cold water instead, by all means do so. Even if you use cold water just for the rinsing part, it makes all the difference.
- Choose the right comb and brush
To keep your hair healthy it is very important to use a proper comb and brush that is suitable for your hair. Always use a fine comb to untangle your hair, and soft bristle brushes. Don’t brush your hair too much, and avoid combing your hair while it’s still wet. This can make your hair weaker and give you split ends.
- Regular trimming
When girls want to grow their hair, they usually do so by not cutting it for a long time. However, the hair requires occasional trimming as it gets rid of the dry and damaged ends and helps it grow faster.
- A healthy diet
Being on a proper healthy diet is essential for the proper development of every part of our bodies, hair included. Providing your body with the proper nutrients prompts the growth of new hair. So make sure you eat healthy and include lots of nuts, fruits, vegetables and fish in your diet.
- Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!
As we all know, proper hydration is key for all bodily functions. Not drinking enough water can cause dehydration which has a bad effect on your hair and skin. So always make sure you drink plenty of water during the day, at least 8 glasses!
