Keeping your hair healthy and protected can be one of the hardest things to do. Especially with so many uncontrollable environmental factors and chemicals filled shampoos. Here are 4 professional tips to protect your hair and keep it healthy:

  • Trim your hair regularly
  • Make sure to trim your hair every six to eight weeks to get rid of the split ends that fall due to heat styling, pollution, smoking or even stress. This will make sure your hair stays healthy while growing back.

    Make sure to remember that hair growth does not happen overnight and that it takes time. so, be patient.

  • Let your hair dry naturally
  • Make sure to avoid blow drying your hair regularly as to not damage your scalp. Let your hair air dry or dry it with a towel gently (harsh towel drying damages the hair cuticles) after washing with shampoo.

    Also, avoid sleeping with your hair wet and combing it when it is wet.

  • Use chemicals free shampoos
  • Try to use all-natural and chemicals free shampoos to avoid the sulfates and parabens chemicals that cause skin irritation and hormonal disruption. If you can not find all-natural shampoos try to use shampoos with as less chemicals as you can find. Because the less the number of chemicals in your shampoo, the healthier your hair will be.

  • Oil your hair
  • Make sure to oil your hair before washing with shampoo to improve your hair’s shine and the scalp’s blood circulation. Oiling your hair also repairs split ends, enables hair growth, and restores the moisture content.

    You can use almond oil, olive oil, coconut oil, or caster oil. Just make sure to avoid using mineral oil on your hair.
