Everyone wants to have beautiful, shiny hair, but not everyone is well versed on proper hair care and maintenance. If you’ve been experiencing issues with your hair, whether it’s dryness, oiliness, breakage or excessive hair fall, here are a few tips on how to have strong and healthy hair:

Minimize Styling
Constant styling can cause extensive damage to your hair, especially if you often use heating tools like blow dryers and curling or straightening irons. These can make your hair weak and brittle over time, and it can become prone to breakage or lead to hair fall. Excessively applying hair styling products like hair spray and hair gel can also cause product build up on your scalp, resulting in dandruff or greasy hair. If you’re the type who likes changing up your look and experimenting with different hairstyles, consider hair extensions from True Glory Hair to protect your natural hair.

High quality hair extensions are made from real hair that can be cut, styled and colored just like your natural hair. Wearing hair extensions is a good way to quickly change your look for special occasions without putting your natural hair through too much stress. The finest Brazilian hair extensions from True Glory Hair will give you the most value for your money, as they are expertly made and can last years with proper care and maintenance.

Clean with Moderation
Washing your hair with shampoo too often can upset the skin balance of your scalp, leading to excessive dryness, itchiness and dandruff. It can also strip you hair strands dry, making them coarse and dull. Your scalp naturally produces oils that are actually beneficial to your hair. Consider washing your hair with shampoo only every other day, or every two days.

If you feel that your hair gets excessively greasy without shampooing every day, you can use a dry shampoo to get rid of excess oil and to freshen up your hair. Dry shampoo is much less disruptive to your scalp and hair, and very convenient for travel or bringing with you to the gym.

In a pinch, cornstarch mixed with arrowroot powder (if you have light hair) or cocoa powder (if you have dark hair) works well as a DIY dry shampoo.

Lock in Moisture
A well moisturized scalp and strands are the keys to beautiful, healthy hair. Switch to a gentle, moisturizing shampoo that is SLS and sulfate free to avoid stripping your scalp and hair dry.

Apply a moisturizing conditioner to your strands every day, avoiding your scalp to prevent product build up and excessive oiliness. Work the conditioner through your hair gently, making sure to coat the tips of your hair to prevent split ends.

After washing your hair, apply a nourishing hair serum or natural oil while your hair is still damp. Jojoba oil, coconut oil and argan oil are some of the best oils to use on your hair, especially if you have curly hair. The locked in moisture will keep your hair from becoming frizzy, and will give your curls a beautiful bounce and shine.

Your hair is your crowning glory, and has its own unique natural beauty. Learn how to properly care for it so you can always enjoy having healthy, shiny hair.
