If you have been longing for long hair, but it won’t grow to a certain point, chances are you have have not been taking good care of it. Remember, hair is made up of proteins. So, practicing good hygiene and maintaining a healthy diet is crucial for hair growth.
Generally, there are four types of hair; kinky, curly, wavy, and straight. Each type of hair may be less or more prone to damage. The more prone to damage, the more care it needs. Once you know your hair type, you are better positioned to maintain its strength and health. Here are five golden tips to support your hair.
1. Wash your hair sparingly using a good quality shampoo
Most people think that a daily wash achieves shiny hair. On the contrary, you are not supposed to wash your hair daily. Hair needs time to enhance the production of natural oils. Drier hair requires more days before washing. Use a high-quality shampoo when cleaning your hair to reduce the oils produced.
2. Use the right hairbrush
Hair should be combed while dry, wet hair is vulnerable to breakage. Apply conditioner while brushing to eliminate all knots. Use a broad toothed comb and gently run it from the roots to the end.
3. Use a deeply hydrating treatment twice a week
Hair treatment helps the dry hair moisturize, the curly one becomes smooth, and the thin hair regains volume.
4. Protect your hair from UV and heated tools
Look for hair tools that offer different heat settings, nozzle attachment for airflow, and a diffuser to distribute heat equally.
5. Deep condition your hair the right way
At least once in a while, generously apply conditioner right from the roots with a broad-toothed comb to ensure the conditioner is evenly distributed.
Healthy hair is strong and healthy. A beautiful looking hair does not matter the style. Most important is to use the appropriate hair products and develop a hair care routine. After some time, the results will start showing.
