Stop washing your hair every day
Many women feel that they should wash their hair every day because they have a fatty scalp and if they do not, their hair will look dirty and messy, but it is recommended that you start washing your hair every two days. We have been brainwashed that we need to wash our hair every day, but our skin has natural oils that keep our skin soft and healthy. Our hair has the same delicate balance, so washing your hair every day dries your hair and scalp. Try washing your hair every other day with a mild shampoo. Look for a shampoo without sulfates, parabens or Vaseline.
People often report that their hair becomes greasy when they stop washing their hair every day. Why? Our scalp produces additional oil to keep up with the oils that were removed from the daily wash, it takes a little time for your hair to adapt, in this case, I would suggest using a dry shampoo to keep the hair from looking super fatty and avoid washing it so often, over time you will see that your hair does not need to be washed daily and your hair will not look dirty again, until the next wash.
If you want to learn how to prepare your own dry shampoo, here we give an excellent recipe that besides being supernatural, will also take care of the health of your scalp and your hair will be very good.
- Corn starch: to absorb the oil
- Cocoa powder: to hide the cornstarch so you can not see it in your hair
Mix a 50/50 ratio of corn starch with cocoa powder for my medium brown hair. Adjust the amounts of the ingredients according to the color of your hair (More corn starch for lighter hair, more cocoa powder for darker hair). Mix it in a recycled spice jar and apply it to the roots. Gently rub your scalp and it should disappear in 10-15 minutes. It gives extra volume and refreshes your hair.
Avoid using excess iron or dryer
The irons, irons and hair dryers dry your hair and generate the horrible open ends or hairpin, these elements although they make you look spectacular, they are one of the most harmful things you can do to your hair. If you must use heat, look for a shampoo or conditioner with jojoba oil, which will provide protection against heat.
It is best to let the hair air dry until it is drier than wet and at this time use the dryer at a not so high temperature, in this way not mistreat the hair and give it the shape you want, since Most heat damage occurs when the hair is very wet, so even partial air drying will help keep hair healthy.
We also recommend not using the iron or dryer every day to shape the hair, occasionally let it rest and comb it in another way, for example, a loose braid or a ponytail would be fine.
Choose the conditioner very well
The conditioner, although necessary for many people, causes your hair to become heavy as it tends to accumulate in the hair strands and cause your hair to be lifeless and inert instead of filling it with volume. Silicone conditioners are especially bad for your hair. So it is recommended that you use conditioners that do not contain silicones or also opt for natural conditioners such as apple cider vinegar.
Apple cider vinegar conditions your hair without weighing it down. It will make your hair shine! Just add a few teaspoons to a cup of water and pour it into your hair. Leave it on for a minute or two and then rinse. The last rinse of the hair should be with cold water. Both cold water and apple cider vinegar will give your hair a lot of shine and also combat dandruff. The smell of vinegar dissipates after a few minutes. I promise you will not smell vinegar all day!
For those who can not stand apple cider vinegar, be sure to use a silicone-free conditioner as mentioned above.
Apply masks to nourish and repair hair
The masks for hair, do a great job of conditioning and repairing damaged hair. I like to choose a specific day to make my natural hair mask, so I usually do it once a week.
Hair masks work best if you apply them to dry hair. The hair may be dirty, but it should not have hairspray or product accumulation. You will have to wash your hair to remove the hair mask, therefore, coordinate according to the wash cycle of your hair or do it, for example, the weekend.
You can make hair masks at home with ingredients that benefit the health of your hair or buy them ready in supermarkets because not everyone likes natural things.
Eat healthy foods
We are what we eat. If you eat a lot of junk food, your skin and body will show it. To have healthy and strong hair, eat healthy foods. Eat the rainbow of fruits and vegetables to get all the essential vitamins and minerals your body needs.
Essential fatty acids are vital to get the bright hair you want, so make sure you eat avocados, fish and nuts, and vitamins B6 and B12 are important for hair health, so eat lots of spinach, potatoes, and citrus fruits. The protein is essential for proper hair growth, make sure you eat enough.
Drink plenty of water
Healthy hair comes from the inside out, so hydration is essential for beautiful hair. Dehydration can dry the hair follicles and make your skin look dry and cracked. Think of a plant when it needs water, it withers and it looks tired, your body reacts in the same way.
To keep your hair strong and less prone to break, take 8 to 10 glasses of water a day. Proper hydration will help develop healthy hair. An additional advantage is that you will get the radiant skin you want.
