Tips for Hair Care

Increasing pollution and high stress levels have begun to take its toll on the urban crowd in a major way today. One of the most common problems that is encountered is hair loss and hair damage. Here are some tips for you to help prevent hair loss as well as ensure healthy hair. These are to be observed regularly for maximum results.

1. Massage your scalp with your fingertips daily to promote circulation in your scalp. Then brush or comb your hair every morning for it helps in breaking sebum which very often clogs your hair follicles. This alone helps in hair growth.

2. Avoid using hairdryers as much as possible . If used then try and keep it away from the scalp. Avoid the use of hair lotions, styling sprays, and gels for they block the hair follicles.

3. After a swim, shampoo your hair as quickly as possible to wash away any chlorine residue. Chlorine is extremely damaging to the hair and scalp. Over-exposure to the wind and sun can do lot of damage to the hair and scalp. Tight hats and caps contribute to poor circulation, and thereby deprive the hair of proper nutrition.

4. Sweat, dirt, and grime around the rim, inhibit follicle health and contribute to build-up. In case of major hair fall consult a medical physician. Proper medication should be taken.

5. High stress factors cause the human body to react by means of fluctuating hormone levels which causes excessive oil secretion (sebum) which results in hair loss. Pregnancy, nursing, menopause even birth control medication can cause hair loss.

6. Avoid "crash and fad" diets. Proper nutritious meals along with vitamin and mineral supplements is a key factor for healthy hair and skin.
