Watch Your Diet

The first step in maintaining healthy hair is eating right. Protein and iron are important for healthy hair. Your hair cells are the fastest growing yet easily affected cells if you don't eat well or suffer deficiencies.

Gently Comb

It is normal to see 50-150 hair strands per day, so do not worry about it. On the other hand, harsh combing can weaken your hair strands causing hair breakage. Use a wide-toothed comb and be gentle on your hair.

Do Not Comb Wet Hair

Your hair is weak and fragile when it is wet. Combing wet hair can weaken your hair shaft and cause breakage. Ensure your hair is completely dry before combing it.

Regular Trimming

Trimming your hair every 6-8 weeks is a must to prevent split ends and keep your hair healthy. Trimming can also enhance your hair growth, so you can have long, thick hair.

Don’t Hair Wash Daily

Washing your hair daily can strip off natural oils from your hair creating dryness and hair breakage. Hence, wash your hair twice or thrice a week with a mild shampoo and conditioner to remove dirt and oil from your hair.

Condition Your Hair

Applying a conditioner is a must to lock in the moisture and detangle your hair. Wash off your conditioner with cold water to strengthen and brighten your hair.

Use Heat Protectant

Use Sulfate-Free Shampoo

Sulfates are generally the lather that comes while you shampoo. They are beneficial in clearing away dirt and excess oil but can irritate and dry up your scalp and eyes. In this case, it is better to choose sulfate-free shampoos.

Oil Your Hair

Oil provides the necessary vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids that strengthen your hair and improve the overall health of your hair. For example, a nice coconut oil hair massage can prevent dandruff, remove sebum buildup and accelerate hair growth.
