Best hair care tips for dandruff free hair

Updated on December 22, 2011

I prefer using these hair care products:

  • loreal professional hair care products
  • Vichy hair care products
  • Kerastase hair care products
  • Terax hair care products.

Caring for your hair is equally important as caring for your loved ones. It is a well known fact that what we eat affects the hair most of the times. First we have to understand the fact that hair and nails are dead skin that our body shreds time after time. It’s quite normal for a human body to shred around 60 to 65 strands of hair every day. To be honest it’s not only the hair care products that we use, It’s also depends on the food we take in. There are a number of reasons for hair fall and these are mostly accounted towards improper maintenance of diet or bad food habits.

“So what foods enhance hair growth or stop hair fall??”

Most of us haven’t heard about Amla or Indian gooseberry that is (it contains high levels of ascorbic acid) which is nothing but vitamin c and antioxidants that are largely required) it is a very good fruit that delivers quality nutrients to our hair and nails. It contains a concoction that helps the boost of hormones that are involved in the growth of both hair and nails.

Greens are the best

Take greens, spinach or broccoli you name it. These are the best supplements for boosting your hair growth. They not only nurture hair growth but also take care of your immune system too and are responsible for the quality growth of nails.

Egg the king of moisturizers

Are you an egg avoider?? Never ever try to ignore eggs, especially the yellow part of it. It’s got the most of the nutrition. And if you don’t know, it is one of the best foods that keep our nails, bones and hair stronger. Your either boil the egg and eat it or break open a raw egg, separate the egg white and apply it on your hair and wash it after 10 minutes. You will notice the difference instantly. You hair would feel much softer than it was before. It is due to the fact that egg is a natural moisturizer.

Green tea

This personally worked out for me. Green tea is a natural antioxidant. It not only builds up your immune system it also acts as a shield for your hair preventing from debris outside home. It can be consumed as a drink or applied on hair with olive oil. I tried it for a week and it feels really smooth and strong.

Olive oil

Olive oil is one of the best natural oil that nourishes your hair, it’s also used to cure split end and most of the times it cures dandruff also. It has vitamin A and vitamin E which slows down the aging of hair thereby reducing grayness of hair for a long time.

Choosing the right hair care products

While choosing hair care products keep in mind that you select hair products that are absolutely suitable for you kind of hair. Remember that different products are targeted for different types of hair. Some are for sensitive hair types and some for rough hair types. So it’s better to ask you retailer before you buy one.

Hair coloring

Hair coloring is one of the ways that you let your hair know that you don’t like it. Seriously coloring your hair with dyes is one of the worst things you do to your hair. It not only makes your hair rough but also damages your scalp that increases permanent hair fall which is not repairable. So when you think about going for hair coloring think twice. If at all you want to use one, choose an herbal hair coloring product that doesn’t affect your hair or your scalp. I stress more on scalp protection because it’s like the soil holding a plant. Only if the soil is nutritious and unpolluted you grow healthy plants right. The principle for growing healthy hair is as same as growing a plant.

Frequent hair showers

It’s a myth that taking frequent hair showers will increase hair fall and by frequent I mean daily. But the truth about frequent hair shower is that it allows the scalp to be clean and moisturized for better growth of hair. The only thing that offends this process is the usage of shampoos. Stop using excessive shampoo and don’t let it sit there for a long time after you applied it. Rinse it as soon as possible after applying. And always remember “less is more” what excessive shampoo does is, it leaves you scalp too dry after shower and thereby causing dandruff accumulate over time.

And finally, keep measuring your nail and hair growth periodically to know whether it grows at the right pace. Try and research on some other foods that also contain high levels of vitamin c and antioxidants. Good luck and feel free to ask any questions. I’m always happy to help my hubbers
