HOW TO TAKE BEST CARE OF YOUR HAIR

HOW TO TAKE BEST CARE OF YOUR HAIR


Maintaining your hair is relatively easy with the right kind of steps. Hair is made of protein, so keeping a healthy diet and good hygiene is an essential part of hair. At the same time, here are some other tips about hair care.

Try shampoos that do not contain sulfates or parabens.

Sulfates are the chemicals that make shampoos lather up. Parabens are preservatives that cause irritation and eye problems after prolonged use. Both of these chemicals aren't healthy for you or the environment so try to use shampoos with natural cleansers.

Choose a shampoo that suits your hair type.

Don't just go for any old shampoo go for the shampoo that works for your hair type.
  • Curly or coarse hair probably wants frizz-minimizing and softening shampoo.
  •  Straight or oily hair probably wants a gentle shampoo designed for daily washing.
  •  Colored or treated hair probably needs a shampoo that's fortified with extracts or amino acids,    because treating your hair is essentially damaging it.
  • Dry hair probably needs shampoos with glycerin and collagen to help restore some moisture into the hair.

Take Care of Your Hair

Don't brush your hair too much. Brushing your hair stimulates the follicles which promotes growth, but brushing too much too often, will cause damage to your hair strands that results in frizz and split ends.

Style your hair naturally, minimizing styling damage. Styling by itself won't overly damage your hair, but repeated stylings multiple times per week put some serious strain on hair.

    Avoid perming, crimping, straightening, curling, and bleaching or repeatedly coloring hair if at all possible. So you want to go out on Saturday night and need your hair straightened. That's fine. Just make it an occasional treat, not a permanent thing.
Don't use rubber bands to pull back or otherwise style hair. Rubber bands will encourage your hair to get snagged, ripping it out of the follicle.
Try not to use hairstyles that tightly pin or pull the hair back. Styles such as cornrows or tight ponytails can cause damage at the roots, or put stress on the follicles.
   
Eat healthily. 

Give your hair the right amount of vitamins. Since hair is made of proteins, eat a balanced diet rich in lean protein, whole grains, fruits and vegetables. A healthy diet will ensure hair that looks and feels better.

Make sure you get plenty of vitamin C. This vitamin strengthens hair. iron helps transport oxygen to blood vessels, zinc grows and repairs tissue, and omega-3 fatty acids grow healthy hair.

Remove stress from your life.

Physical and mental stressors will keep your hair from realizing its full potential. Stress can cause hair loss, so try not to let stress overcome you. This means finding healthy emotional outlets for your stress: yoga, biking, meditation, or other forms of exercise all work well.
