Healthy hair is on everyone’s wish list, no matter what your age, gender, hair type or style. However, hair care is different for everyone, but some of the key rules remain the same. In this article, we are looking into some must-have rules you should never skip when caring for your hair.
One of the biggest elements that you should always remember is to never skip conditioner. Not only does this run the risk of drying out your hair, but this can lead to breakages when brushing your hair. If you are spending time in saltwater or in the sun, it’s important to condition the hair as this will help to prevent split ends and breakage, leaving the hair as healthy as possible. Kérastase Resistance conditioner is a good option for building strength and elasticity to combat breakage.

Another rule that you must live by when keeping your long flowing locks is to only brush once a day. By brushing only once in a day, you are reducing the amount of unnecessary damage that can be caused to the hair. If you brush once in the morning, you can retain the style you want without causing unnecessary damage. It is also important to ensure that you are using the right hairbrush because brushing your hair, especially when it is wet (which is when it’s at its most fragile), can cause unnecessary strain on the lengths, therefore hair should be combed when dry in order to protect the hair.
The least amount of time you spend washing your hair, the healthier your hair will be. This is due to the amount of excess oil in the scalp and the balance of oil production. By washing your hair frequently, you run the risk of stripping the scalp of all its natural oils. This can then lead to the hair becoming greasy more quickly as your hair tries to compensate for lost oils. By washing your hair 2-3 times a week, you can ensure that your hair is shiny, and the scalp is as healthy as it can be. This can then help to prevent hair problems such as sensitivity and dandruff, which can often be exasperated by ingredients such as silicones and sulfates in some shampoos.

The step you should never skip is an oil treatment. If your scalp is often dry and flaky, an oil treatment can help prevent this and restore the moisture of the hair as well as restore natural oil production. Although this is a step that should never be skipped, it is important to ensure you use a treatment like this in moderation. This is because it can then cause more damage to the hair whilst leaving it heavy and greasy. If you are looking for a lightweight oil to put in the hair, there are a few options in local pharmacies or online, such as Bumble and bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil, to help you get the look you want without weighing down your hair.
With all this in mind, there are a number of rules to follow if you want to have healthy hair, some of which should be stuck to religiously if you want long flowing locks. Even if you stick to these rules and, of course, a healthy diet, you can only do so much to keep your hair healthy, especially when common problems such as hair loss, which is often hereditary, is at fault. If this is something you are concerned with, there are cosmetic surgeries such as hair transplant in turkey services, which have gained popularity over the years, that are highly beneficial for those looking to restore their hairline to its former glory.
