Posted by on February 21, 2020 in Skin & Hair Care with 0 Comments

It is hard to keep your hair healthy and shiny, especially if you dye it very often and get blowouts every once in a while. There are some things you shouldn’t be stressing yourself out about, such as weather conditions and genetics, which unfortunately, can take a toll on the hair quality. Stress and even experimenting with different hairstyles can also affect your hair thickness and its shine. Take a look at our four tips below and see what are the ways to improve your hair volume and shine and prevent it from falling out.

Say No to Frequent Washing

Your hair will be grateful if you don’t wash it too often. Nowadays, most shampoos and conditioners contain a lot of chemicals that are actually harmful for your scalp and hair. The best advice would be to use organic products that have vitamins and oils that are beneficial for hair quality and prevent hair loss. Washing it too often can also lead to dandruff appearance, which is very hard to get rid of, because washing irritates the scalp so it keeps coming back. We know that greasy hair doesn’t look nice, but it can be styled to make this less noticeable.

Change Your Pillowcase

Think beyond your hair. What is the material you sleep on? Cotton is a rough material that is not too gentle neither to the skin on your face nor to your hair. So, even in your sleep, you can make sure that your hair is well taken care of. With the aid of silk pillowcases for hair care, the breakage of your hair is reduced to a minimum and it will not be as tangled and frizzy as before. Don’t tie it in a ponytail before you go to bed, because the tightness will cause serious damage to the hair quality, and can even cause a headache.

Balanced Diet and Fluid Intake

Eating certain food will not make your hair longer overnight, since it is rather a long process of changing your habits and lifestyle. Processed food or fast food causes breakouts and may be the reason for hair thinning, since you are not getting the necessary vitamins and proteins hair needs to grow. Essential vitamins that affect hair growth are vitamin A, E and C. Proteins that the hair follicles are made of are found in eggs and dairy and should be consumed on a daily basis. Also, staying hydrated is equally as important as eating a balanced diet. Thinning and low hair quality might be directly related to dehydration.

Hair Masks

Just like the face masks, hair masks are great for getting the shine back and making the hair glowy. You can make your own masks with the help of products you have at home, or you can buy them online. Hair masks are the best source of moisture and oils that bring your hair back to life. Again, you should avoid masks that are full of chemicals, but rather stick to natural ingredients. Apart from nurturing your hair, a good scalp massage can also have an impact on your hair growth and strength. A relaxing massage increases blood flow and can stimulate the hair follicles to produce thicker hair.

Eating regularly, drinking enough water, and getting head massages from time to time can work wonders for your hair and are a great way to see improvement in your well-being. Did you know that even the pillowcase material is important for keeping the hair strong? Tell us all more about your tips in the comment section below.
