Having strong, healthy hair is possible, as long as you keep in mind that hair health depends not only on the type of shampoo you use, but also on several details, including nutrition and hydration.

Below we will discuss in more detail what are the tips you should take into account in your daily life.

Follow these 12 tips

1. Brush your hair every day

Buy a brush with soft bristles and try to brush your hair when it’s dry to prevent the strands from breaking easily.
If you have very long hair, you can also brush your hair gently before going to bed. This will stimulate the blood circulation in the scalp and the hair follicles will produce healthier hair strands and you can achieve strong, healthy hair.

2. Cut off damaged ends

As hair grows, it becomes weaker, especially at the ends, which is the “oldest” part, so to speak. To fix this problem:

Although sometimes we don’t want it, it is necessary to cut at least the ends of the hair, in order to maintain the health of the hair.
Start by cutting a little (no more than 3 centimeters) and repeat this process as your hair grows. Every 3 to 4 months you can trim the ends.

3. Know your hair type

With this information in your possession, you will have the ability to choose the right beauty products. Using the products that best suit your hair type is essential for strong, healthy looking hair.

4. Rinse with lukewarm or cool water.

Yes, even in winter. The final rinse when you wash your hair should always be with warm (or rather, cool) water to allow the cuticles to close. You will see that your hair will be shinier and silkier. In addition, this technique serves to make it grow faster.
Hot water, on the other hand, increases oiliness and breaks the strands. Thus, when they dry, you will feel them as “open”.

5. Use quality products

Opt for products that suit your hair type and give you good results. These products will help you achieve strong, healthy hair.

You can consult with your hairdresser about the best options for you, so you can buy the one that best suits your needs.

6. Don’t overuse a blow dryer or flat iron.

Even if you have beautiful straight hair, reduce the number of times per week you blow dry or flat iron it. Exposure to heat from these elements dries out the hair, making it dull and lifeless. As a result, it becomes more prone to breakage and split ends.

We recommend that you use these tools only when you have a special event or on very cold days so that you don’t go outside with wet hair and catch a cold.

7. Massage your scalp

You can do this while showering or when you’re watching TV on the couch. Among the benefits of hair massage include:

  • Increase blood circulation to the hair follicles.
  • Relieve stress.
  • Conditioning the scalp.

Try massaging several times a week with essential oils. You will see the effects almost immediately.

8. Do not abuse chemical products

Just as the heat from a hair dryer or flat iron is bad for the health of your hair, certain common products can also damage it. This is the case with hair dyes and straightening treatments (even if they are of good quality).

9. Avoid the sun and the pool

When summer and vacations arrive, your hair is likely to look dull and weak. This is due to exposure to the sun, chlorine added to pool water or sea salt.

We advise you to wear hats or scarves at this time and, if possible, to use a product that acts as a barrier against these harmful elements.

10. Do not wash it excessively

Both the scalp and the hair strands need several hours to dry completely. In addition, the more often you wash your hair, the less natural oils it will have and the duller it will look.

The frequency of washing will depend on your hair type and the time of year. Don’t wash every day, even in summer.

11. Maintain a healthy diet

In addition to taking care of your hair on the outside, it needs to be nourished on the inside. It is therefore essential that you eat a balanced diet and add lots of fresh fruits and vegetables to your meals. Nuts, legumes and water are also essential.

12. Do not tie your hair

Ponytails and other hair ties break the hair strands, especially if they are too tight. In extreme cases they can even cause alopecia.

  • The “ponytail” is detrimental to the health of the hair, as well as braids or elaborate hairstyles.
  • It is better to wear it loose and only fasten it in certain situations, for example, when doing sports or if it is too hot.

Strong, healthy hair depends not only on the type of shampoo you choose to use, but also on other details. So remember the tips we’ve shared with you, apply them and start looking great from now on.
