4 Everyday Healthy Hair Tips Everyone Should Know

We are taught how to take care of our hair at a very early age. The truth is, most of us don’t know much beyond brushing and using shampoo and conditioner — and the majority of people aren’t doing that right, either. Have no fear, Nikita Hair is here to provide you with four everyday healthy hair tips that will drastically improve the health and appearance of your hair. Read on to learn more, and book an appointment at our new salon in Mason!

Concentrate Shampoo on Your Scalp

Our first everyday healthy hair tip takes us back to the basics. When you shampoo your hair, you want to focus your efforts on cleaning your scalp instead of washing the full length of your hair. Doing this helps remove build ups of dirt, sebum, and other undesirables that damage the roots of your hair. It’s understandable that people think that you should wash the entire length of your hair, but doing so can actually damage the texture of your hair and make it dull and coarse.

Focus Conditioner on the Tips of Your Hair

Some people view conditioner as less important than shampoo, but these two products work together to keep your hair healthy and beautiful. After you use shampoo to get rid of dirt and other build ups on your scalp, you should apply conditioner to the tips of your hair to improve its strength and shine. Applying conditioner to the scalp or length of the hair can create a limp and uninspired look, especially for those with thin hair.

Eat a Well-Rounded Diet

Like every other part of your body, your hair is directly affected by the nutritional value of your diet. As hair is mainly made up of protein, consuming lean meats, poultry, fish, beans, low-fat dairy products, and other healthy sources of protein is an essential part of both hair and scalp health. The zinc found in nuts, fruits, vegetables, and leafy greens also helps fortify your hair and prevent shedding. A healthy intake of omega-3 fatty acids are another way to support a healthy scalp, so consider adding foods like salmon, yogurt, salad, and flax seeds to your diet. If you’re a picky eater, just add these supplements to your daily vitamin routine.
