In the modern times we all strive to look as good as possible, and while that whole idea lies on three main principles (balanced and nutritious diet, regular exercise, and positive mindset) there are still certain areas that we have to devote more time to. Hair is one of those, and women pay extra attention when styling, combing and taking care of their hair. Along with that, we do think that men should apply some of the below-mentioned tips, as well as those, are all a part of maintaining healthy hair which can in terms lead to fewer chances of balding or at least slow down the process (as it is much influenced by genetic traits).
Now, it is a fact that although people see hair as important and something to be nourished not all are familiar how to do it and even go on to damage their hair due to the lack of knowledge. You might think you are doing your hair good while, on the other hand, all you are achieving is brittle and dry hair that will be prone to further damage. That is why we came up with a few tips on how to maintain and take care of your healthy hair. Let’s take a look.
How To Nourish Your Healthy Hair
1. Let’s start off with some tips that are related to washing your hair. First and foremost, you shouldn’t wash it every day (unless you have really oily hair) as that will put natural oils at a disbalance and eventually lead to dry and brittle hair. On the other hand, you should use shampoos that are made out of natural ingredients and essential oils and don’t contain chemicals such as parabens or sulfates. And while protein is essential in hair building and maintenance (due to collagen production) you still shouldn’t go overboard with it – find a shampoo that has a healthy balance of natural ingredients. Last but not least, we would recommend that you wash your hair with apple cider vinegar at least once in a few weeks – don’t mind the smell and enjoy the benefits of the dandruff-free And it may also help you on your path to acquire the right hair porosity levels.
2. Along with that, you should use a moisturizer after washing as it will keep your hair from drying out and becoming brittle. On the other hand, we don’t recommend using a hairdryer unless you have to. It is much better to let your hair dry naturally and at its medium rate. Still, if you don’t have time for that and have to leave the house in less than an hour use a hair dryer but do so at medium settings and the right rance. Let’s not forget that you shouldn’t experiment too much with your hair – dying too often can in terms lead to permanent damage that you will not be able to repair.
3. Last but not least you should implement certain lifestyle changes. First and foremost, it is essential to drink more water – try to make your water intake at least 2 liters a day and more if you feel so. On the other hand, you shouldn’t take all negative situations so serious and should rather strive for accepting the present moment as it is. Stress is the number one reason for premature hair loss.
And not to forget you should eat a healthy and balanced diet rich in protein, whole grains, fish (omega 3 and omega 6), as well as an abundance of fruits and vegetables. This kind of diet, rich in various vitamins and minerals, will help you in maintain hair porosity levels and overall healthy hair!
We shouldn’t neglect our hair as it is one of the most important indicators that we do care about our body and our health. And it is not hard maintaining it either – skip out on some habits that you probably had (like washing too much, or using the artificial shampoo), and pump up on healthy habits, and natural ways of combing and drying your hair!
