1.Regular Coconut Oil Champis
You would to make things easy for your hair as well as yourself. Proper champis or massages act as the base on which the health of your hair and your scalp depends, and if you choose to go for coconut oil, over those fancy formulated hair oils, you will be doing yourself a favour. Try to massage your hair atleast once a week. Coconut oil has a lot of nutrients that make the roots of your hair strong, as well as the strands itself. Plus, it locks just the right amount of moisture in your scalp which makes it even healthier.
2. Hair and Scalp Hygiene
Other than keeping your scalp and hair clean, it is paramount that you keep your hair as clean as possible. No matter how exquisite or expensive your hair care routine is if you cannot maintain proper hair and scalp hygiene all your effort is wasted. Having said that, do not star aggressively shampooing your hair every day. Use a shampoo that suits your hair type, as well as your skin type. Also, try to go for products that are free of sulfates, alcohol and other harmful chemicals. And no matter what, if you are shampooing, always follow it up with a good conditioner, which again, suits you hair.
3. Brush Instead of Combing
A hairbrush, because it is softer on your scalp and hair, is always better for you when compared to a fine-toothed comb. combs tend to cause far more hair breakage and are not able to massage the scalp when you style your hair. Furthermore, using a comb puts stress on your roots. A hairbrush, especially the ones with thin, densely packed bristles is actually softer on your hair. Plus, they deal with more hair in every stroke, which gives it a nice texture and fill. Brushes are also more effective in clearing up loose strands of hair or debris from your scalp.
4. Maintain The Moisture Of Your Hair
Given where may be headed , shampooing every day is not actually possible, at least for us men. Therefore the best next alternative is washing your hair with warm water, carefully. With that being said, you have to ensure that the water isn’t scalding hot, or else you’ll end up damaging your hair , or even your scalp. And try to keep your scalp and hair mositurised. Apart from coconut oil massages, you can make some easy changes in your habits that help in retaining moisture, like massaging with aloe vera sap or cutting down your caffeine.
