5 Tips for Great Hair

I often get asked how I manage to have such nice and thick hair. I thank all my friends and family who compliment me wholeheartedly (all the time). Today I am sharing my favorite 5 tips for good hair. I have tried and tested a lot of shampoos, oils, serums, masks etc. and this is what I have come up with – “Our hair need inner strength (just like our body)”. Think of it this way – ‘It does not matter how expensive your facial creams are, if your skin does not have a natural glow to itself.’
So today, I am sharing my personal favorite 5 tips for great hair with you all…

Exercise and eat a lot of protein.
Before you think I am crazy, who keeps on talking about fitness, let me explain. Everything starts and ends with nutrition and exercise in my life. If you are not healthy internally, how can you think any amount of hair oil or shampoo will impact the quality and growth of your hair. Hair products are just external. They have no role in making your hair stronger from the roots. For that you need to make sure, your hair gets plenty of moisture and protein from your diet. So drink lots and lots of water, eat healthy home-made food, include lots of vegetables in your diet and don’t forget to keep a good check on your protein intake!

Keep them dandruff free
Then comes the cleanliness part. Now, do you suffer from occasional breakouts on your cheeks or forehead? If the answer is yes, you may be suffering from dandruff! Each one of us suffer from dandruff every now and then, since our scalp keeps shedding its skin in the form of dandruff (Did you know that?) So whether you have oily or dry hair, you may have dandruff (and you may not even know about it)! The solution is to wash your hair with a good medicated anti-dandruff shampoo once every 10 days. Also due to dandruff, the roots of your hair may not be able to breathe fresh air, which causes hair fall and breakage. Keep your hair clean (like, all the time). Enough said.

Moisturize them well
Once we have taken care of the health of our hair and roots, we can now switch up one level and think of moisturizing them externally. There are various types of oils available in the market these days. Though my favorite is coconut oil. I have been using it since my childhood days and my mother swears by it! Warm oil massage really helps in stimulating blood-circulation. A good head massage also calms the mind.

Wash it with a good shampoo
Each one of us are blessed with different kind of hair. Some have oily, some have combination, some have thick and frizzy (like me) and some have those gorgeous natural curls! Hence, all of us should look for different requirements from a shampoo. One may not suit all. Try to find a shampoo that suits your hair type and matches your needs. Make sure to use a shampoo with natural ingredients, since harmful chemicals destroy the natural oils of your hair. Don’t just go ahead and buy a shampoo simply because it works best for your friend or sister! Read the label, make sure it does not consist any harmful chemicals and it’s made for your hair type.

Too much of anything is bad + Trim them too
Don’t wash your hair too frequently. Over shampooing not only washes dirt but also washes the natural oils from your hair. It makes them dry and brittle too (and we don’t want that, right?). Unless you have very, very oily hair, washing them everyday is a bad idea. Also, do not oil your hair too much (or too often), it attracts dirt. Similarly, do not use too much of hair conditioner, it weighs them down.
Last but not the least, do not forget the importance of a regular trim! You must get rid of those ugly-looking, hair-spoiling split-ends!

So these are my five hair rules. Follow ’em to believe ’em!
Also, tell me about your hair secrets too, I am always eager to add more to my list!
