5 things you need to do to have a healthy hair

Choosing the right shampoo and conditioner isn't enough to give you strong, shiny hair. There are 5 things to do for healthy hair that you should know!

When it comes to hair care, most people choose to spend little time on it, mainly due to lack of time rather than simple indifference.

Choosing the right shampoo and conditioner isn't enough to give you strong, shiny hair. There are 5 things to do for healthy hair that you should know!

However, there are ways to make your hair grow healthier and stronger with these 5 helpful tips that don’t take up much time in your everyday life.

1. Massage your scalp

Remember doing this when you’re having a shower and you’ve applied some shampoo. You can also try to massage your scalp with olive, argan, and sweet almond oil, which you’ll have to remove afterward with a shower. The important part is to apply some of the chosen substances on your fingertips and use them to massage your scalp for a few minutes. There are also devices you can buy for this job, but the key is the gentleness and pressure of your fingertips.

Regular scalp massages can have many health benefits and positive effects on your hair. It’s been proven that this habit helps to reduce the risks of hair loss and treat alopecia. By massaging the hair follicles, you also stretch these cells and boost blood circulation, which stimulates thicker hair production as well as hair growth.

2. Get a haircut regularly

It’s advised to leave no more than 6 or 8 weeks between haircuts.

An unhealthy-looking hair may just be in need of a haircut in order to receive its previous glow back. Even if it’s only a trim, it’s advised to leave no more than 6 or 8 weeks between haircuts. This will not only help the hair grow faster, but it’ll also be healthier, due to the fact that split ends don’t allow hair growth, increase risks of breakage, and make your hair look lackluster.

3. Brush your hair

You should do this twice a day, always in the same direction: from the hair roots to the tips.

Brushing your hair can help to evenly distribute its nutrients and natural oils. You should do this twice a day, always in the same direction: from the hair roots to the tips. The key is to avoid tugging, as it can increase the possibility of breakage and thinning, which will be counterproductive even if you manage to detangle your hair. In essence, brush your hair wisely and gently!

In order to prevent hair damage when brushing, you should wait until it’s dry unless you have textured or tightly curled hair, as other hair types are much weaker when they’re wet. There are also certain brushes that can be extra aggressive to your scalp, such as bristle brushes. Instead, opt for wide-tooth combs and plastic alternatives. You can purchase an anti-tangle hairbrush as well.

4. Know what type of hair you have

This is essential if you want to choose the correct products. Besides, choosing the right formulas for your type of hair will help it to receive all the nutrients it needs. Determine if your hair is low, medium, or high porosity, the products you'll need may vary a lot. Use protein-infused treatments for high porosity hair, and if the damage comes from your hair being naturally dry you can try moisturizing products with glycerin or aloe vera. 

5. If possible, don't skimp on product quality

It is always best to bet on quality. Choose to have fewer but higher-quality products. You can also make your own serums and hair masks!
