Ease Your Way Into Strong, Healthy Hair

You know the drill. You come across a shampoo commercial that unfailingly features a model with luxurious, envy-inducing, luscious locks that make you brood at your screen. You then spend the next hour, wondering whether that is an actual possibility, because… well, how could someone possibly have hair as great as that solely through the magic of technology? Surely if you auditioned for that part with your hair, you are convinced you would have been sent back. Well, as it turns out, given the excessively polluted environment we are prone to live in now, there are a few things we can do to maintain the health and vitality of our hair. Here are a few easy ways in which you can incorporate a slightly different lifestyle for great benefits.


 The fact that you need to wash your hair is a given. The question is, what are you washing it with? You may have seen this topic debated increasingly in the recent past, and with good reason too. Many shampoos today are chockful of chemicals, causing more damage than good to your hair in the process. Since most people are not well-versed with what a good shampoo should be like, it would be worthwhile to look it up. Look up the benefits of each as well, such as caffeine shampoo in Singapore for hair loss for instance.


 Washing your hair just twice a week is also enough, a lot of experts have said. This is because the scalp produces natural oils regularly that are essential to keep it, and your hair in great form. By washing your hair excessively, you are stripping off these precious oils and inevitably make your hair drier as a result. Use a gentle shampoo, something that suits your type of hair, and make sure you only wash it around twice a week. Three if you must, but no more. More and more people are becoming aware of this and opting for it too, so if you have not, try and adjust.


 If you eat junk food all day every day, then you cannot really get upset if your hair is not what you want it to be. The body gives out what you put in, so if you have a balanced diet, then you can expect to see results. It is quite pointless investing in unique products like hair growth shampoo repeatedly, if you do not consume enough vitamins. Vegetables, fruits, fish and grains are all so important for providing the nutrition your body needs. Actually, modifying your diet is not such a bad thing, especially when you think about how good it is for you overall, not just for your hair.


 Though straighteners, curling irons and blow-dryers have all been dubbed ‘lifesavers’ at some point, depending on them less will help your hair heal. This is particularly important for those of you who might have very dry, damaged and brittle hair. If you have coloured, bleached or chemically treated your hair in any form frequently, you should be very careful. The hair is made up of a strong but delicate protein called keratin, which can be easily stripped off if you are not watchful. Only use a styling tool when you absolutely need to, and certainly not on a regular basis.
