Ten secrets for keeping your hair shiny and healthy

Ten secrets for keeping your hair shiny and healthy

Most women dream of thick, shiny, and healthy hair. After all, it’s an important attribute of female beauty. Our simple tips will help you strengthen hair and keep it healthy.

1) Try to avoid strict diets - If you want to have hair like those beauties from Russian online dating websites, avoid diets that lead to a sharp weight loss, as your body may lose zinc, biotin, and proteins. The lack of all these nutrients will make your hair not only brittle but also rare.
2) Take a shower before going to swimming pool - Always wash your hair before going to swimming pool. If your hair is already saturated with water, it will absorb much less chlorinated liquid from the pool.
3) Buy shampoos suitable for your hair type - You can buy the most expensive shampoo, but this doesn’t mean that it will be perfect you. When buying shampoo, it's more important not to look at its price tag, but to check if it suits your hair type. Its cost is not a sign of quality. Studies have shown that conventional shampoos deal with hair problems no worse than expensive ones, and sometimes even better.
4) Wash your head in lukewarm water - Hot water can wash off a large amount of sebum. This protective fat acts as a natural conditioner and gives your hair shine. Also, don’t forget to massage your head while you wash it.
5) Protect your hair from the sun - Your hair gets nothing good from sunlight. The sun dries it, especially if it’s painted. If you still have to spend some time in the sun each day, use a conditioner or wear a hat.
6) Don’t use oil to get rid of dandruff - It is mistakenly believed that the cause of dandruff is a dry head, but in fact, it’s completely wrong. It’s all about an inflammatory process that must be treated with special medications. Rubbing any oil in your hair can make things even worse. Buy a medical dandruff shampoo. Just be sure to wash your hair well after using it.
7) Use conditioners that contain protein - Frequent hair styling, dyeing, and curling deform the protective outer layer of hair. As a result, you get split ends. Fortunately, today there are a lot of ways to avoid it. Buy air conditioners that contain protein and use them constantly. They are pretty good at preventing split ends.
8) Comb your hair less often - Combing the hair too often leads to excessive hair loss. The very process of hair loss is quite normal, so you shouldn’t be afraid of it. On average, a healthy person loses from 50 to 100 hairs a day. Most of it falls out because it has stopped growing and passed into the resting phase. To minimize hair loss, use combs with ball ends and try not to comb wet hair.
9) Avoid haircuts that damage hair - Braiding the hair can damage it as well as its follicles. Dermatologists advise wearing braids for no more than three months. Besides, wet hair is more brittle. Therefore, never braid wet hair.
10) Body health is the basis for beauty of your hair - It’s important to understand that the use of medical and cosmetic products for hair is only superficial. Often the poor condition of the hair is associated with health problems, for example, due to persistent stress, metabolic disorders, mental overloads, or various hormonal dysfunctions. Therefore, the beauty of your hair is based on body health.
