We all want beautiful and healthy hair. But sometimes we do things that can damage our hair. Multiple reasons can damage our hair and make hair fragile. Damaged hair breaks easily. Hair damage makes hair look frizzy and unhealthy.
But you need not worry about some simple changes that can help you to prevent further hair damage
Wash your hair the right way
We often wash our hair by rubbing shampoo into the length of our hair and that can damage our hair. Gently massage your scalp with the shampoo After that rinse the shampoo from the scalp and do not rub the length of your hair. Use conditioner after every wash, it will make your hair softer and prevent breakage.
Stop drying your hair by rubbing it with a towel
Do not rub your hair with a towel, the fabric of the towel can be harsh to your hair and it can damage your hair. Warp your hair in a soft towel and let the towel absorb the water. Or if you have short hair you can simply just air dry your hair.
Brushing hair while it is wet
Do not brush wet hair because when we wash our hair the pores of the scalp get open. So combing after hair wash can lead to breakage and hair fall.
If you have straight and tangle-free hair then you can gently brush your hair with a wide-tooth comb. If you have textured or curly hair, apply some serum first then gently comb your hair with a wide-tooth comb.
Check the ingredient list carefully before buying any hair product
There are so many hair care products in the markets we often buy products without checking the ingredient list. Some hair care products have toxic ingredients that can damage your hair in the long run.
Avoid using hair products that contain sulfate, mineral oil, paraben, denatured alcohols, synthetic fragrances, silicons, and para-phenylenediamine (PPD).
Avoid excessive use of heat styling tools
Heat styling tools such as straighteners, curling irons, and blow dryers can damage your hair if you frequently style your hair by using these tools. When we use these tools they can strip our hair of its proteins and natural oils that can make our hair damaged and fragile.
It’s okay to use them occasionally but make sure to apply heat protection products before styling your hair. Or there are other hair styling products available in the market that are not harmful, you can give them a try as well.
Maintain a proper diet
A proper diet can also help you to prevent hair damage. Consuming unhealthy junk food can ruin your skin, hair, and overall health. So maintaining a proper diet is crucial. Foods like eggs, carrots, oats, spinach, sweet potatoes, and dairy products have an excessive amount of protein and vitamins which can control your hair fall and will help you to achieve healthy and beautiful hair.
There are multiple ways to control the damage. If nothing is working for you then you can consult with a dermatologist.
