Healthy Hair Habits You Need to Know

Nobody wants to have a bad hair day, ut we’ve all been there, more often than we would like to admit. From thin hair to frizzy hair, there is so much that can go wrong, but you can avoid the worst of it if you focus on making your hair as healthy as possible.

With that in mind, here are some healthy hair habits that you pretty much need to know:

Eat a healthy diet

A big part of what makes your hair, and your beard if you have one, healthy is what you choose to eat. Foods that contain a lot of protein, like fish, eggs, and tofu, are particularly good because protein is the main component of hair, but eating lots of avocados and berries that have tons of vitamins C and E in them will really help to strengthen your hair too.

Brush your hair before washing

If you take the time to detangle your hair before you wash it, it is less likely to break. Water makes hair weaker, so if you brush after washing, you are more likely to see it snap, which is exactly what you do not want to happen.

Add oil

Hair oils and serums that have been fortified with vitamins can help to nourish your hair from the outside and make it shiny and strong, as can oil-based beard products if you know a guy who might be interested. By applying an oil treatment at least once a week – argan and coconut are particularly good – you can expect to see sleeker hair in your immediate future.

Condition correctly

Conditioner can add moisture to your hair and improve its natural sleekness and shininess, but only if you do it right. Use an amount of conditioner no larger than nickel, apply it evenly throughout the length of your hair, leave for 90 seconds and rinse thoroughly for best results. If your hair is very dry, a leave-in conditioner might be more appropriate.

Cut down on heat styling 

You might love the sleekness that comes with straightening your hair or the bounce of heat-styled curls, but high temperatures can damage your hair, causing it to become dry, spilt, and occasionally even break off. Using her as little as possible is, therefore, a really good idea, but if you must, at least use a good heat protectant spray before you do so, oh and maybe wear a hat when you’re out in the hot sun too because that can have a similar effect.

Banish stress

Many people do not realize that your stress levels can affect how much your hair grows, but it can often cause your body to be stressed, which can make your scalp dry, which not only inhibits growth but can also lead to dandruff too, So do some yoga, meditate or find other ways of de-stressing regularly if you want your hair to be healthy.

Putting these healthy hair habits into action, will give you the beautiful, healthy mane you’ve always dreamed of, so what are you waiting for?
