As experts of hairstyling and hair in general, it is our duty here at Edge Beauty Bar, to share with you some essential tips to help you maintain a healthy head of hair. You may be surprised by how many of these things you’re not aware of.
Wash your hair regularly
This may depend on your hair type, but as a general rule of thumb, you should wash your hair every day. The factors that determine the frequency of your hair wash include your lifestyle and your hair type. Lifestyle is a factor because we all go through different scenarios in life. Some people may be working in heavily polluted areas and do more strenuous work while others work in offices and drive a car from point a to point b. Some people also use a lot more hair products than others.
Be careful when combing
Especially after showers, your hair tends to be more fragile when it’s wet. So make sure that you are gentle and extra careful when combing your hair from roots to tips. Preferably, use a wide-toothed comb when combing after a shower.
Be mindful of your shampoos
You may not be aware of this, but some of the most common shampoos that you use contain chemicals that can damage your hair and scalp in the long run. It’s also important to find a shampoo that your skin won’t be irritated with and will suit your type. Remember, the lesser the chemicals, the better.
Avoid excessive use of blow dryer
As much as possible, let your hair dry naturally. Excessive use of a blow dryer tends to damage your hair and hair scalp because of its extreme heat. We’re not saying to fully avoid this, but minimize it to some important events. Alternatively, you can dry your hair naturally with the use of a towel, but make sure not to be rough because this can damage your hair cuticle. However, if you desperately need to use a curler or a blow dryer, you can also invest in a reliable heat protectant serum.
Using conditioner is one of the best things you can do to your hair as it protects them from being damaged by harsh particles from the environment and heat styling. Apply generously to your hair and make sure to wash it thoroughly with cold water.
Your hair needs nutrition as much as your whole body does. Biotin and protein are 2 of the most essential nutrients for hair growth. The best foods to eat for healthy hair are:
- Sweet Potatoes
These are some tips to help you maintain healthy hair. It’s important that we take care of our hair. Failure to do so will result in dandruff, dryness, hair fall, and dullness. Make sure to keep these tips in mind at all times to ensure your hair won’t be going away anytime soon.
