10 Simple Tips and Tricks to a Healthy Hair

Updated on April 22, 2015

They say that hair is the crown of beauty and many will try different hairstyles and haircut just to achieve what suits to their taste. But no matter how great is your haircut and hairstyles, they are nothing when your hair is not healthy.

Many women try to look best themselves to boost their self-confidence. They do facial care, whitening body skin, eat lots of fruits and vegetables, and exercise to achieve perfect body figure and taut skin. Everything they will do to just to make themselves feel and look beautiful, including getting healthy hair, which I will mention the tips and tricks to get healthy hair in this article.

Below is the list of 10 simple tips and tricks on how to get a healthy hair.

1. Hair Brushing Strokes

Before shampooing, brush your hair to remove surface dirt and any tangles. Forget the myth that brushing 100 strokes daily is beneficial. Over-vigorous brushing can tear and generally weaken the hair shaft.

2. Hair Cleansing

Take short cuts to remove any build-up of styling products in your hair. Massage shampoo into dry hair and rinse it out with warm water. This will be sufficient to remove impurities and your hair shouldn’t need another wash.

3. Scalp Kneading

Moist your scalp in the shower to boost circulation, improve hair health and reduce stress. Knead your scalp gently using the pads of your fingers. Start at the front of your head and work down to the nape of your neck.

4. Hair Moistening

Only apply conditioner to the ends and midlengths of your hair, (the hair near your scalp should have enough natural hydrating oils). Applying conditioner near the roots will make your hair feel greasy shortly after washing.

5. Final Hair Rinsing

Boost hair shine and remove tangles by using vinegar as a rinse after shampooing. Dilute one tablespoon of vinegar in 600 ml tepid water and pour it over your hair. Comb it through and then rinse it out with warm water.

6. Cold Rinsing Hair

Hot water causes the cuticles to swell, creating an uneven surface and making locks appear dull. Use cold water to rinse your hair. The coldness of the water will close the cuticles, ensuring all-over hair shine.

7. Squeezing Wet Hair

Never towel dry your hair, as it robs the locks of moisture and destroys elasticity. Squeeze excess water from the hair using your fingertips and then blot the hair with a towel. This helps to retain vital moisture.

8. Combing Hair

Never brush wet hair. It is swollen twice its normal size and is susceptible to damage. Use a wide-tooth comb and work through wet hair in sections, starting with the ends. Comb your hair until it is completely tangle-free.

9. Hair Styling Sense

Leave your tresses to dry naturally, as heated styling appliances damage the hair shaft. Twist long hair into a topknot and leave it to set as the hair dries. Apply a small amount of gel to short hair and comb it through.

10. Taming Hair Flyaways

Once your hair is dry, spray a fine mist of hair spray onto a comb and run it through the hair. This will tame any stray cuticles or flyaway ends and give the hair a neat, polished finish, ensuring long-lasting perfection for your hairstyle.


Try the tips and tricks to a healthy hair I mentioned here and you would never spend money anymore on additional hair care products besides shampoo. Nowadays, beauty parlors have come up a wide range of hair care care products and services to achieve healthy good looking hair. These products are made from harsh chemicals that may damage your hair cuticles. Why not try the natural way to get healthy hair!

    Whenever I get my hair done at the salon, they always massage my scalp. I have found this extremely relaxing. Good tips, thanks =]
