Thanks to our busy schedules, taking care of our hair is a tad bit difficult. However, there are a few simple tips which we can apply in our daily routine to improve the health of our hair.

Here are the top 5 rules of hair care that are practised by hair experts. No matter how your hair is, following these simple rules will give you healthy and happy hair. Now, no more bad hair days!

#1 Wash your hair thrice a week

Hair Shampoos

 Buy Hair 4 Real Hair Dye Shampoo @ Rs 499

Buy Khadi Amla & Bhringraj Shampoo (Pack of 2) @ Rs 430

How often should I wash my hair? This is a very common question which most people with hair related issues ask. Washing your hair every day is not healthy no matter how much you love clean tresses. The natural oils of your hair tend to protect your hair. These natural oils are washed away if you shampoo your hair daily. The more you wash your hair, the more oil is produced which results in a need to shampoo your hair more often. Cease the habit and limit shampooing to only twice or thrice a week.

How to wash your hair correctly?

First and foremost, you must avoid washing your hair with steaming hot water. Secondly, you must apply shampoo to your scalp and rinse it properly instead of simply applying it on the ends. Many people make this mistake of applying more shampoo instead of applying it at the right place. One should apply it directly on the scalp and not on the ends. Give a gentle massage to your hair while shampooing as it encourages blood circulation and detoxifies the scalp. While applying conditioner, do the reverse. Avoid applying it on the scalp and focus on the ends as the direct application on scalp makes it greasier. Make sure you dry your hair with a towel before applying conditioner.

#2 Say no to hair loss!

Hair growth

 Buy Hair 4 Real Hair Building Fiber with Hair Locking Spray @ Rs 999

#3 Brush your hair starting from the roots

Brushes and combs

 Buy Hair Brushes & Combs Set Under Rs 600

Brush your hair regularly to get healthy and tangle free hair. Don’t be harsh with your tresses. Be gentle and use a brush gently to get healthy hair in the long run. When your hair is wet or slightly moist, you can use a wide-toothed comb instead of a brush as that would prevent damage. Use a hair brush when your hair is completely dry. Begin brushing it from the ends and go in the upward direction. Clean your hair brush periodically.

#4 Use hair styling tools wisely

Hair styling tools

Buy Hair Styling Tools Under Rs 900

When you are using a hair dryer to dry your hair, set the heat settings on a low mode and point the nozzle of the hair dryer in a downward direction instead of piercing it in your hair. You must also avoid using hair styling products like irons, blow dryers on a daily basis to prevent hair damage. Keep the hair dryer at least a couple of inches away from your tresses especially if you have hair fall issues.

#5 Choose the right hair oils

Hair oils

 Buy Hair Oils Under Rs 300

Applying oil on the hair regulates the natural oil production as then the scalp doesn’t feel the need to produce oil to compensate for a dry scalp. Choose the right oil based on your scalp type and keep hair related problems at bay.
