Six Ways To Keep Your Hair Healthy Without a Trip to a Hair Salon

Your hair is one of the first things people notice about you. It is your crown jewel. Pun intended. If you take good care of it, it will shine for all to see. You don’t necessarily need expensive or time-consuming treatments, or visits to a hair salon to manage your hair professionally. There is so much you can do outside of a hair salon or barbershop to maintain a great head of hair. Here are 6 top things you can do to maintain a healthy and fresh look without going to the hair salon:

  1. Diet and Hydration are key to a healthy shine. To achieve that healthy hair shine, look no further than your diet. Hair is really just a reflection of what you are inside. A healthy, balanced and nutritious diet will do more to make your hair shiny than any shampoo or conditioner can. Hair is comprised of over 25% water, so drinking eight to ten glasses of water a day will keep it nourished and make sure it doesn’t go thirsty.

  2. How you dry your hair has a profound effect on keeping it from being damaged. Make sure to dry your hair after washing it in the ambient temperature of your room. First use an absorbent towel to soak up excess moisture, making sure not to rub too hard. If possible, if possible don’t blow dry or use flat irons, curling irons or hot rollers. Using an artificial heat source all the time will leave your hair brittle and damaged over time. Naturally drying your hair will go a long way in preventing self-inflicted damage from happening.

  3. Prevent unnecessary hair damage by using the right kind of hairbrush. Only comb wet hair with a wide-tooth comb, combing from end to root, but avoiding touching the root. Detangling wet hair with a hard steel comb can create a lot of damage, so don’t!

  4. Remove split ends will help keep your hair healthy. One simple way to remove trichoptlosis, or split ends, is to take small sections of your hair and twist them in a gentle downward motion, causing the split ends to stick out. Use a pair of sharp scissors, and carefully cut into the twisted section, but not all the way through. In order to remove the damaged cuticles and leave a natural layered look, cut roughly the same amount from each twist to balance things out.

  5. Biotin helps keep your hair going. While hair loss is mostly a genetic condition that can’t be changed. The rate of hair loss can be slowed, or even reversed by applying a few simple tips, though they more than likely won’t cure any underlying conditions. Biotin, a water-soluble B vitamin nvolved in a wide range of metabolic processes, can help regenerate hair follicles. A good natural way to get Biotin in your system is to blend bananas with honey, yoghurt and low-fat milk. Drinking this smoothie daily not only tastes great but will definitely inject Biotin into your system to help with hair loss. Supplements such as Vitamin B6, zinc and saw palmetto can also help, but for sure eliminating some of your stress and getting plenty of sleep may work just as well. Try walking after dinner and get your heart rate up.

  6. Get your haircut or styling by a mobile barber with haircut delivery. One easy way to get your hair to look and be its best is to get regular hair cuts or stylings. These no longer have to be done at a barbershop or a hair salon. Haircut delivery is now a thing. You can use a service like SpaDash (Austin, Texas) and they will send a licensed hair care professional to you. They bring a full salon with them and give you the proper treatment to keep your hair healthy and happy. Plus, staying out of traffic and out of the waiting area will certainly lower your stress levels and make you and your hair happier and healthier.
