Making sure your hair is as healthy as possible is about more than just which shampoo you use. A multitude of different factors affect how shiny, sleek and strong your hair is. Some of it’s natural you have to work with the locks you were born with, but a lot of it has to do with how well you care for those locks. Here are the hair care tips and healthy habits to start right now for your healthiest hair ever.

Keep your hair stay clean
Listen to your hair. As long as women are using quality products, they can benefit from more frequent washing. It reduces split ends, provides great moisture, and gives hair an overall clean and shiny look.
Wash daily if you live in a city with pollution or humidity, or work out daily. Wash every few days if you live in a rural environment away from pollutants, or an especially dry climate. And if your hair is normal or combination, with dry ends and oily roots, you should split the difference and wash every other day.

Brush hair gently
Diet, although important, will only strengthen newly forming strands, not hair that has already grown. Using the wrong brush is one of the most common causes of breakage, and advises using a brush with plastic, rounded prongs. Brushing hair from the ends and gently working your way to the top of the head also helps avoid snapping strands.

Get enough protein
Hair is made of keratin, a protein, not getting enough protein in your food can make hair to dry, brittle strands, Very recommends adding chicken, turkey, fish, dairy products and eggs into your foods. Good sources for vegetarians and vegans are legumes, nuts, tofu and quinoa. Iron and complex carbohydrates are also important.

Air could dry hair
Hairdryers and heated styling tools can leave hair brittle and lacking in shine. Heat can, in a sense, cook the hair. Think of it like a piece of steak – it starts out nice and soft and flexible, but when you cook it, the steak changes texture and becomes hard. Similarly, hair transforms when exposed to heat over time. Allowing hair to air dry when possible, and if using a hairdryer, to use a protective spray or serum and to start off on the lowest setting before gradually increasing the heat.

Exfoliate your scalp
Cold weather can exacerbate dandruff. Shampoos containing zinc pyrithione or salicylic acid are recommended to treat dandruff. For a cheaper option: pour sea salt flakes into shampoo and rub energetically into the scalp pre-shower.

Have regular trims
It is essential to get rid of split ends before the damage travels upwards. A trim every six to eight weeks. Even though it is less obvious than with straight hair, Afro hair needs to be trimmed regularly to ensure you have better curl definition.

Manage stress
Stress can cause hair loss. Exercise, a healthy diet, meditation and prioritising sleep all help to de-stress body and mind.

Hydrate grey hair
Grey hair is often finer and more fragile, but can look coarser due to oil glands producing less sebum as we age. Using a hydrating and moisturising conditioner and oils such as argan and jojoba as part of a routine to soften hair and counteract dullness. Purple- and blue-toned products are also designed to brighten grey hair.
