Every woman dreams of thick, silky, lustrous hair. So, if you want to be the envy of all your friends follow our Ten Commandments, for beautiful healthy hair.
Protect your hair
Yes, protection is one of the best way to keep all your hair troubles at bay. Try to protect your hair from extreme temperature, sun, dirt and pollution. These can be responsible for causing infection on your scalp, which will lead to hair fall, dandruff and other hair problems.
Handle with care
After a shower, make sure you don't brush your hair immediately, as this can cause hair damage. Wet hair is weak and fragile. So, wait until your hair dries up and then gently comb your hair.
Condition your hair
To avoid frizzy hair, make sure you moisturise your hair with a good conditioner. After conditioning your hair, wash it off thoroughly and then allow it to air-dry.
Don't make hair styling a habit
Most hair styling products generate lots of heat, which can damage hair, if you them on a regular basis. Never overuse, your hair styling products, and always use a good hair serum, to minimise damage.
Avoid tying your hair tight
The more you twist and turn your hairband, the more you will be damaging your hair. Instead, of tying your hair all the time, leave it loose or use a headband or a clip.
Cleanse your hair thoroughly
The most important reason for hair fall is dandruff and an itchy scalp. Therefore, maintain optimum cleanliness, if you want to flaunt your hair in public.
Prepare your hair mask
Once a week, treat your hair to a good hair mask, this will give your hair some essential nutrients. Hair masks are easy to prepare. Simply mash a banana, add some egg, mix it and apply it on your hair. Wash it off after 30 minutes.
Eat right food
Besides, treating your hair to a good hair mask and conditioner, you also need to give essential nutrients from fresh fruits and vegetables. Eat a balanced diet, this will help your hair grow quickly and add lustre and shine.
Oil your hair
Make sure you oil your hair at least once a week. Oiling your hair once a week is very important, as it boosts blood flow to the scalp. You can either use coconut oil or almond oil to get shiny, thick hair.
Brush your hair regularly
Brush your hair, to spread the naturally present oil across the scalp. This will help to add lustre and shine to your hair .
