Top Tips for Beautiful Hair

  • Do not wash your hair too much. Once or twice a week is good enough unless you work out every day or live in a very humid area.
  • Use a gentle shampoo, or try a natural cleanser.
  • Hot water is your enemy. Always use cool water on your hair as well as skin (unless you have a cold and cough).
  • Let your hair air dry. If you must blow-dry, use the cooler setting.
  • Stay away from chemical treatments. Perming, straightening or coloring deplete moisture from your hair and can leave it very dry.
  • Protect your hair from the hot sun as it can dehydrate your hair. Wear a scarf or hat when you are spending a long time in the sun.
  • Nourish your hair from within. Take omega-3 rich foods such as fish, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, and flax seeds. Omega 3 helps to restore moisture and improves the smoothness and shine of your hair.
  • Vitamin A is also extremely important to keep your hair soft and hydrated. Include foods such as pumpkin, mango, carrot, sweet potato, dark leafy greens, and papaya.
