Tips for Maintaining Healthy Hair and Preventing Hair Loss

Lifestyle and Hair Health: Tips for Maintaining Healthy Hair and Preventing Loss

Unhealthy, straggly hair and hair loss can be really traumatising. Well, your hair is definitely more than ‘just’ hair! Your hair is a form of self-expression! It’s your identity! Having beautiful hair puts a spring in your step, makes you immensely happy and boosts your self-worth! Here’s a round-up of all that you need to do to have gorgeous hair!

Essential Hair Care Tips for Nourishing Your Hair

There could be a host of reasons your hair isn’t healthy-looking, smooth and glossy, as you’d like it. Causes range from – lack of moisture, inadequate conditioning, fluctuations in the hormonal profile, undue sun exposure, inadequate diet, frequently coloring your hair, and heat styling. Here’s how you counteract the damage –

Deep conditioning

Deep conditioning your hair, a minimum of once a week guarantees beautiful, glossy locks! Deep conditioners that are packed with amino acids, green tea and natural butters do wonders to your hair. They improve the hair follicles' resilience to the environment, make your hair look healthy and add a distinct radiance to the strands.

Use a satin or silk pillowcase

when the scales on the hair cuticle don't lie flat, the hair looks dull and frizzy. To prevent a disruption of the hair cuticle while you sleep, experts advice using a satin or silk pillowcase; this reduces the friction between the hair and the cotton pillowcase, which makes your hair frizzy when you toss and turn in your sleep.


Treat your hair with regenerative and restorative serums for soft, smooth, shiny hair. Hair serums lock in a ton of moisture, tame flyaway hair, and hydrate and repair.

Proper Washing Techniques for Healthy Hair

  • Wet your hair.
  • Apply a little shampoo to your scalp and hair.
  • Scrub the scalp well. Cleaning the scalp well is important, to get rid of all the accumulated dirt and grease. Be gentle though, don’t rough your hair up.
  • Rinse thoroughly.
  • Apply conditioner to the lower half of your hair only. Do not apply conditioner to your scalp.
  • Before rinsing off the conditioner, use a wide toothed comb to detangle the hair.
  • Rinse off the conditioner.

The Importance of Conditioning your Hair

The significance of a conditioner can not be overemphasized. Applying a conditioner after shampooing is very vital. A conditioner replaces the natural oils lost from shampooing, it smoothens the cuticle, eliminates tangles, boosts radiance and shine, and prevents hair static. When using the conditioner, always apply from the mid-length of your hair to the tips.

Effective Hair Masks and Deep Conditioning Treatments

Hair masqs are the most effective beauty solution as well as a self-care ritual. When it comes to treating damaged hair, bringing out the gloss, or ironing out your frizzy strands, nothing can beat a hair masq!


You could opt for deep conditioning masqs – there are scores available in the market or you could make your own masq. Homemade masqs soothe and repair damaged cuticles and are made from ingredients sitting in your pantry. Here are 3 super potent DIY hair masqs –

Egg, honey, coconut oil

This one’s a complete powerhouse which softens and hydrates dry hair. The fatty acids in egg, phytonutrients in honey, vitamin E in coconut oil moisture your scalp and hair, promote good hair growth and also fight sun damage.

Yogurt, avocado, tea tree essential oil

keratin in the yogurt strengthens the hair and staves off breakage, avocado makes your hair shine, while, tea tree essential oil has potent anti-inflammatory and anti bacterial properties that keep the scalp healthy.

Rosemary oil, castor oil, shea butter

If you're dealing with hair thinning, dry scalp, and dull - looking hair, you can count on this blend to deliver fabulous results! Use as an intensive deep treatment, to increase blood circulation, get rid of stubborn dandruff, and have silky strands.

Choosing the Right Products for Your Hair Type and Hair Condition

The hair can be fairly challenging to maintain well, especially when it comes to selecting the right products. If you select a shampoo that is too drying, your hair will look rough and frizzy; on the other hand, if you opt for one that’s too heavy, your hair will look oily. The right shampoo cleans the scalp well, prevents a build-up near the hair roots, and adds volume. Likewise, the perfect conditioner should add a bounce to your hair, not make it look limp. So is the case, when you select serums, gels, and masqs. Trial and error will help you zero in on the right hair care product.

To keep your hair healthy and radiant all year round, it is very important that you give it the love it deserves!

Leave-in conditioner is applied after washing your hair and conditioning it; you do not have to rinse it out. A leave-in conditioner deals well with tangled hair, promises greater moisturizing, and also provides heat protection. It is recommended for all types of hair. Applying the leave-in conditioner correctly is important. After you’ve washed and conditioned your hair, pat it gently with a towel – you want the hair to be damp whilst you apply the product to your hair strands. Leave it in.

Shampoos cleanse your scalp and hair of oil, sweat, dirt, grease and other hair care products like serums, gels hairsprays, etc.


You can’t have a one-size-fits-all attitude when selecting a shampoo. Each one has his own individual factors to take in to account. The shampoo that you choose and how often you use it depends on – your hair type, your activity level, and the environment you live in.


Trichologists agree that it is absolutely safe to wash your hair everyday with a mild shampoo, especially, when you have greasy hair, do intense workout and live in a humid environment. On the other hand, if you have dry hair, hardly do any physical activity and spend most of your time in an air conditioned setting, then 2 to 3 washes per week are adequate. Trial and error will help you figure out what’s best for your hair.

Exfoliating the scalp once a week is crucial and will contribute in a big way to your hair health. Use a scalp massage brush or salt along with charcoal to scrub the scalp clean. Exfoliation gets rid of stubborn grease, dead skin and product build-up. It also allows deeper penetration of the serums and oils, thereby promoting wonderful hair growth. If you do not exfoliate regularly, it will clog your hair follicles, triggering hair loss. Exfoliation dilates the blood vessels, boosts circulation and encourages hair growth.


Then again, do not exfoliate too often, it will irritate your skin. Furthermore, if you’ve been diagnosed with eczema, dermatitis or psoriasis of the scalp, never exfoliate – it’ll cause inflammation and aggravate your condition.

The following signs are a cry for help!


  • Hair thinning
  • Hair loss
  • Hair breakage
  • Split ends
  • Dull looking hair
  • Frizzy hair
  • Flyaway hair

Saw palmetto is a plant whose berries are packed with phytonutrients that have the potency to make your hair healthy. Saw palmetto supplements prevent hair loss by not allowing the body to convert testosterone in to DHT. It also strengthens the hair follicle and thus boosts hair growth, making them stronger and thicker.

Massage the hair masq in to a clean scalp and hair. Massaging the scalp nourishes it and applying the masq to the shaft helps seal the cuticle and get rid of frizz.

Experts say, applying a hair masq once a week is an ideal frequency. If you apply too frequently, it tends to weigh your hair down, making it look limp.

If you want shiny, glossy tresses, you absolutely have to give mayonnaise a try! Before shampooing, apply a generous amount of mayonnaise to your hair; mayonnaise seals moisture in to the strands and protects them from the shampoo as well as sun. This intense conditioning should be done once a week.
