Tips to keep your hair healthy and strong

When should you wash your hair

First, you need to know when to wash it.

People often make the mistake of washing it every day and that’s wrong because washing hair too often can cause dry hair out.

The recommended time to wash it is from two or three times a week.

If your hair its or gets oily very quickly, I recommend you use a lightweight shampoo.

This kind of shampoo contain milder detergents than others, or you can try soap nuts.

Hair conditioner

Something important that you must do to keep your hair healthy is always use a good hair conditioner after you use shampoo.

Do this will provide moisture for your hair making it softer and more manageable, also easier to brush out when you finish your bath causing less damage.

It is recommended, especially for girls with oily hair to apply the conditioner to the ends or tips and mid-lengths of your hair.

If you apply conditioner from the top, your hair will look greasy.

Once a month, try to use a deep conditioning treatment. There are many that use olive oil, argan oil, avocado oil, or coconut oil as ingredients.


Tips to Keep Your Hair Healthy and Strength

Always use a comb, even more if your hair is wet.

Because when hair is wet it is more susceptible to damage than dry, it tends to be more elastic and more likely to break.

Okay so, now you now that hair wet is more fragile, you know that you shouldn’t use a brush or a rip after washing it.

So, remember, use a wide-tooth comb to brush your hair and remove all the tangles and minimize breakage.

When brushing your hair you must be very careful and treat it with love so that it does not burst and look bad, but that it stays healthy and beautiful at every moment of our day.

We can dye it, cut it, do what we are left with, remember that a change of style is really necessary.

Always start from the tips and up. Never from the roots and down.

If your hair is dry, try to not brush It anymore unless it is necessary.

Don’t use your fingers to comb through your hair when is wet, that can cause damage and hair loss.

Shampoo and hair conditioner

Always buy shampoo and conditioner that suits your hair type.

You should pick a shampoo and conditioner combo for greasy, fine, dry, or colored hair.

It is the best thing you can do for your hair.

No matter what kind or type of hair or texture in your hair you have, there is a special product made to care especially for you.


Don’t you ever towel dry your hair.

Remember that hair is more fragile when is wet, roughly towel drying hair can cause damage, you can rough up the cuticle and causing more breakage and finish with frizzy or fluffy hair.

Also, no rubbing. Trying to blot your hair with the towel to remove excess moisture.

You can invest in a super absorbent towel that you can use to wrap around your hair after washing.

Tips to Keep Your Hair Healthy and Strength dry

Dry your hair sparingly

The frequent use of hair dryer can cause problems to your hair, it can dry it out and cause breakage and split tips.

Try to not do this often, let your hair dry naturally instead.

And if you use the hair dryer, don’t hold it too close of your hair, this can cause your hair to burn.

If you are going to dry your hair, try to always apply heat protector spray or serum to hair before doing it.

Use a cooler setting on the hair dryer to minimize the damage.

You can buy an ionic hair dryer.

This kind of hair dryer emits charged particles that can cut drying time in half, minimizing in this way the heat exposure, and encourages the hair cuticle to lie flat.

About products

Remember at least once a month to provide deep conditioning treatment to your hair.

Search for one hair mask designed especially for your hair type, whether if is dry, oily, fine, or colored. You can fine these products in pharmacies or hair salons.

If you are going to dry your hair, apply serum to wet hair before drying, or to freshly blow-dried hair.

This will help keep your hair soft and shiny, and a bonus is that applying a very small amount of this helps you to minimize frizz.

To apply serum, do it to ends and mid-lengths of hair, and always avoid the roots.
