Hair care is as much required for men as much for women. In fact, men are most susceptible to one of the biggest hair problem of hair loss. It is therefore important for both men and women to take care of their hair and scalp to prevent any future problems.
Use of a good shampoo and conditioner- never go for low quality shampoos and conditioners. A good shampoo and conditioner together works well to cleanse, moisturize and give shine to your hair. Although a hot bubble bath is refreshing, do not wash your hair with hot water. It can dry your hair extremely and make them dull and lifeless.
Never dry your hair with a towel. When you dry wet hair rigorously with a towel, they get entangled in its threads which causes weakening and hair breakage. It is one of the biggest causes of hair damage. Always pat dry gently with a soft towel in the direction of hair growth.
Of course, your hair will take more time to dry but they will not damage. Also, never brush your hair when wet. Wet hair is fragile and therefore more vulnerable to breakage. If you must, comb them gently with your fingers or use a wide toothed comb.
Avoid too much of perming, blow drying or straightening presses on the hair. Too much heat on them can damage the hair from its very roots. If your hair has got damaged somehow, the only way to get rid of damaged hair is to cut them. Even if you are growing your hair, get them trimmed at least every six months and tell your stylist to remove only damaged hair.
It is well said that a healthy mind resides in a healthy body and does healthy skin and hair. In other words, take healthy diet full of green veggies, fresh fruits and dairy products and drink plenty of water and fruit juices. The health of your body will get naturally reflected in your hair.
Moreover, refrain from wearing tight caps or making very tight ponies. It can give rise to the problem of “traction alopecia” or a condition in which the hair gets pulled out of the scalp.
