Your Short Guide to Long and Healthy Hair

Everyone goes through bad hair days! Isn’t it? Do that bouncy and thick hair models flaunt in advertisements seem like a far-fetched dream to you?

But hair care experts preach that the dream of long and luscious hair can be turned into a reality with appropriate hair care. Read on to know more about a curated list of top hair care tips.

  1. Wash Your Hair Regularly

Washing your hair regularly makes sure that your scalp and hair do not have dirt and excess oil. Nevertheless, the right number of hair washes depends on hair type and personal preferences. If you have dry hair, wash your hair only twice a week. And if you have an oily scalp, wash your hair on alternate days.

  1. Apply Chemical Free Shampoos

You can’t control all the external environmental factors that hurt your hair, but you can control is the type of shampoo you apply. The lesser the number of chemicals, the more damage-free your hair will be.

Sulfates and parabens in shampoos are included for lathering and preserving, but they can lead to skin irritation and increase hormonal disruptions.

  1. Use the Correct Conditioner

Your conditioner has ingredients that make the hair fall manageable. It shields your hair from environmental factors and heat styling. Nevertheless, it should be used only on the tips of the hair. Make sure to rinse it off gently post-application, too.

  1. Dry Hair Naturally

Blow drying makes your hair as beautiful as they look in the salon. But a large amount of heat styling can harm your hair scalp. If you must style, reserve it for special events. Air or towel drying after washing is the best way to dry your hair. Never sleep in or comb wet hair. Harsh rubbing with a towel can even damage the cuticles of your hair. Be gentle while using a towel.

  1. Oil Your Hair Correctly

Pre-shampoo routine like oiling and massaging enhances blood circulation of the scalp, relaxes your muscles, gives it shine, and nourish your hair. It also reinstates moisture content, enhances hair growth, and repairs unwanted split ends. You can pick from different oils like coconut oil, almond oil, olive oil, castor oil, etc. Do not mineral oil on your hair.

Our recommendation: If you want long, lustrous and thick hair, you should go for Aaranyaa’s Hair Oil. It is formulated with Bhringraj, Methi, and Ashwagandha extracts. This unique formulation strengthens hair and prevents hair fall.

  1. Regularly Trim Your Hair

Keep trimming your hair every 6-8 weeks to remove split ends. Split ends form when the hair is harmed due to pollution, heat styling, smoking, stress, etc. Trimming does not miraculously make the hair grow faster. Hair growth occurs at the scalp, but trimming makes sure you have a healthy set of hair.

  1. Drink Enough Water

Hydration both internally and externally is the key to well-balanced and healthy hair. You might be applying rich hydrating hair care products and oils, but drinking at least 3 liters of water every day ensures good hair health.

  1. Have a Healthy Diet

It is true, you are what you eat – when it comes to hair care. Your hair is full of proteins and amino acids. It requires the right nutrition to grow quickly and maintain itself. Eggs, green leafy vegetables, berries, nuts, fish, sweet potatoes are some of the many recommended foods for healthy hair.
