Taking care of your hair is as good as taking good care of yourself. It is very essential to wash your hair regularly.
Here are a few tips to wash your hair:
- Wet the hair completely
- Use lukewarm water
- Apply adequate amount of shampoo to the scalp
- Scrub gently
- Allow the shampoo to stay for few minutes
- Rinse well
- Gently dry your hair with a towel
Avoid harsh chemicals, procedures like hair straightening, hair smoothening, frequent hair spa, blow drying your hair, as the heat generated during these procedures can damage the hair and increase hairfall.
How often you have to wash your scalp depends on how oily your scalp feels. If it gets oily quickly, wash your scalp daily. Else wash your scalp once in 2 days.
A normal scalp usually has around 1lakh hairs. Among them on an average 60 to 100 hairs fall and regrow every day. If you are losing more than 50 hairs every day for more than 1 month, or having itching or pain on your scalp, then consult a dermatologist for further evaluation.
A well-balanced diet, regular exercise and adequate sleep are also essential to beautiful hair.
