10 simple ways to take care of your hair at home
Many women choose to regularly visit professional hair salons to take care of their hair. However, in addition to the expensive cost, with the impact of the Covid19 pandemic, many activities are restricted, including the closure of hair salons, making women feel confused and do not know how to keep their hair smooth and healthy.
To overcome this situation, let’s change some daily habits to quickly regain the shine and smoothness of your hair by your own.
Regularly cut hair
According to hairstylists, trimming hair, 1.5cm each time for 6-8 weeks is an ideal plan to help hair grow long fast. By sticking to this schedule, you can prevent split ends from going all the way up to the hair shaft, causing breakage. In the meantime, about 12 weeks, the trimmed hair will become a graceful, beautiful hairstyle.
Do not wash your hair often and brush your hair gently
Many people think that when hair is dry and frizzy, they should wash their hair several times a week. However, that is a completely wrong opinion because this makes the hair dehydrated and more prone to dryness. Wash your hair regularly and keep a reasonable distance between times. It is best to wash every 2 days, unless you have to work or spend a lot of time outdoors.
Using cool water to wash your hair will help close the pores, but it will not affect the cuticle of the hair. When washing your hair, do not put shampoo directly on your head, but you must wet your hair, put shampoo in your palm and mix with water to create foam. Then rub the shampoo evenly on the hair, gently scratch, massage for a while and then rinse with water until all the foam is removed.
Dry your hair and brush it with your fingers first or with a wide comb, because when you first wash your hair, your hair is easily tangled, so if you comb it with a regular thick-tooth comb, it will cause hair loss. Simultaneously combined with soft massage manipulations to avoid damage to the scalp as well as reduce the shine of the hair.
Limit the heat
Heat from hair dryers, curlers or irons is one of the main causes of dry and split ends.
Therefore, girls should limit the use of these machines by letting their hair dry naturally after shampooing or using curlers that do not require heat.
Note, when drying your hair, divide your hair into small sections and comb it smoothly with a comb first. Then dry each section that has been divided and remember to keep the dryer more than 5 cm away from the hair, not too close to the hair. It is more effective to blow-dry and straighten your hair at the same time than drying it completely and then combing it. This also helps to keep the hair smooth and soft.
In addition, in the hot summer weather, you should not expose your hair to the sun, when going out, you need to wear a hat to protect your hair.
Choose the right shampoo
Instead of shampoos containing many chemical ingredients, you should choose natural extracts and do not irritate the scalp as well as damage the hair.
If you have time, you should use natural nutrients such as locust, grapefruit peel, lemongrass, beer, lemon, apple cider vinegar… to clean your hair. Your hair will quickly improve the split ends, you will have a shiny and strong hair.
Massage your scalp regularly
Regular massaging your hair gives you many benefits, and preventing hair loss is just one of them. Spend 10-15 minutes each day gently massaging the scalp. This will help increase blood circulation in the scalp, stimulating hair growth. The effect of scalp massage will be greatly increased if you apply a little lavender oil or nut oil on your scalp.
Moisturizing treatment for hair
A moisturizing treatment for hair at least once a month is essential. A homemade coconut cream and butter recipe can be made, followed by a shampoo, mask, and apple cider vinegar. The results after a few treatments will bring a good result: strong, shiny hair and no more split ends. Providing moisture to the hair is the key to successfully growing long hair.
For those with curly hair, experts recommend regularly steaming the hair so that the hair is enhanced with moisture, nutrients and becomes more beautiful, while limiting the phenomenon of dry hair, split ends.
Once a week, you can coldly steam your hair at home to limit the impact of high temperatures that are as damaging to your hair as when steaming hot.
Choose a suitable hair conditioner and gently apply it to your hair after washing it, then wrap it in a towel and wait for about 15-30 minutes depending on the specific steaming oil, you will see your hair become so much softer and more shiny.
Use a natural hair mask
After cutting split ends, you should use natural hair masks. Some masks help hair recover quickly like avocado masks, you just need to puree an avocado and then mix the above mixture with eggs (both yolks and whites can be used) and olive oil.
Apply the mixture evenly from the ends of the hair to the roots, wrap a towel or use a cap to cover your hair for 20-30 minutes. Note that you should wash your hair with warm water first to completely remove the mask from your hair. Then use shampoo and rinse with cold water.
You can also use a papaya + yogurt, honey or banana puree mask to incubate your hair. These natural masks are easy to make and effective, you will surely be surprised at their effectiveness after using 2-3 times.
Pay attention to the material of the pillow
Don’t be afraid to shell out for a silk or satin pillowcase. The friction of the hair in front of the cotton pillow can lead to breakage of the hair structure.
Do not use a hard dry towel to wipe your hair
Wet hair is more prone to breakage than dry hair, so when you wash your hair, choose a soft towel to dry your hair, you should also not use a towel to rub too hard or squeeze or twist your hair, just soak a little water in gentle way.
Adjust your diet
The last but extremely important thing. All we know that one of the reasons why our hair becomes ugly is due to an imbalance in nutrition, making it difficult for the scalp to absorb nutrients to grow hair. Therefore, you should supplement with B vitamins of all kinds to moisten and thicken your hair by drinking vitamins or foods rich in B vitamins such as bananas, green beans, yogurt, eggs, cereals… and especially drink a lot water.
In the fall, hair usually grows much more slowly, but with a good diet, you can still have a vibrant hair throughout the fall.
Minimize caffeine intake by reducing tea, coffee, chocolate or colas.
