Why is my hair getting worse?
This is a good question. Although the answer is pretty obvious, but we still need someone to remind us. Most of what makes our hair look limp, damaged, lifeless and weak is us. Our daily styling, eating, and hair routine cares are what’s wrong with our locks. Hair is like plant and flowers. If you don’t nourish and protect it and just leave it there in the sun or cold it will stop its regrowth and will eventually die. The same thing happens to our stresses. Luckily, our hair is stronger than plant and can be saved ones we take care of it. If you want long, strong and healthy strands there are methods to follow.
How to fight hair loss
If you were serious about saving your locks, the following daily routines to fight hait loss won’t seem so hard to you.
First of all, you have to start with your inside. What most people don’t know is that everything we eat–be it healthy or not- affects our hair. For example, people who like greasy food mostly have oily hair. Other who drink lots of water have shinny, healthy hair, and so. That’s why the first thing to start with is your diet. Eat a little from everything in one balanced meal. Try to mix, iron, zinc, Vitamines A, B, C, and D, Omega3, and Biotin in all your meals. And o forget to drink at least 2 litres of water everyday.
Stay away from chemicals and styling tools
Chemical treatments, use of heat appliances and vigorous styling can actually affect the hair root and damage your hair. What those tools and dyes do to the hair is heartbreaking. They strip our stresses from the natural, protective oils. Unfortunately, some of us can’t go without using them everyday. If you really care for your hair, avoid the use of those and try to air dry your hair. Also, cut down on dying your hair every month and leave it natural. Trust me, you’ll notice big difference.
Wash your hair two to three times a week, max
Washing hair every day is a mistake, no matter how much you might crave clean-feeling locks. Your hair’s natural oils are designed to condition and protect your tresses, so when you shampoo daily, it strips these vital oils away. It creates a vicious cycle of over-production of oils and a need to shampoo very often. Ideally, to keep your hair healthy, you only need to wash two to three times a week, max.
Massage your scalp to encourage circulation
Giving your head an invigorating massage as you shampoo is a good way to encourage blood circulation and helps to detoxify the scalp. In addition, massaging your scalp while shampooing with a natural shampoo allows its ingredients to get into your hair follicles. Specially if you live the shampoo on for 2/3 minutes for the roots to absorbe all the good minerals from your shampoo. Also try to massage your scalp and hair with some essential oils and extracts like argan, rosemary, coconut or amla oil. These oils are very nutrient and leave the hair shinny and easy to manage after wash.
Brush your hair twice a day, from the bottom up
Healthy hair needs regular brushing but don’t tear through your locks mindlessly. For perfectly shiny, healthy and untangled hair, you need to brush your hair twice a day. Once in the morning and once before going to bed, for about a minute each time. Don’t be rough with your hair: treat it nicely and it will repay you by looking healthy and shiny. Also try to brush it starting with the bottom. Brushing from the roots causes damage – always brush from the bottom and work up.
Use a wide tooth wood comb
Fine comb can hurt the delicate new growth and also cause abrasions on your scalp. Where as wide tooth
wood comb are more gentle on your hair and scalp. Wide tooth comb also provide massaging effect and help distribute sebum (natural oil) from the scalp to hair. So If you want healthy mane, then discard the fine/sharp tooth plastic comb and replace it with a wide tooth wood comb.
