Beautiful, shiny and healthy hair is everyone's dream. 

So to make our hair attractive we tend to apply various hair products without knowing that there might be also side effects relating to those products. We know that all hairs are not the same. 

So we should be very careful before applying any kind of hair product which might in turn cause damage to hair. 

Damaged hair is fragile and giving a frizzy unhealthy appearance. 

Those kinds of practice mentioned above might lead to hair loss and bald spots if the same is being continued for a long period. 

Hair problems can affect to anyone be it a teenager, an adult or even a person crossing the age of forty. 

Common hair problems are hair loss, dandruff, gray hair at an early age, dry hair, splits ends, frizzy hair, etc. The cause of hair loss could be various below 

I have mentioned some of the factors leading to hair damage:-  

Tips for beautiful and healthy hairs

1) Wrong treatment or lack of proper treatment: 

We know that all hairs are not the same. Therefore we should aware of our hair type before applying any kind of hair treatment or products. 

Because the application of those kinds of chemical products could make our hair extremely prone to brittleness and breakage which might make the scenario worse causing damage to the hairs.

2) Over-brushing:  

Too much brushing can also cause breakage because excessive brushing tends to leads to cuticle damage-causing friction. 

As the hairbrush runs through your hair it creates pressure by the bristles causing breakage. Excessive brushing is especially not good for long hairs.

3) Stress, anxiety or too much workload in this competitive world:

In this competitive world, people go through a lot of stress be it emotional or physical relating to either work or any other, which may lead to a condition called telogen effluvium. 

The stress can cause the hair roots to reach it's dormant and meant to make the hair loose from the scalp relating hair fall after some time.

4) Thyroid disorders: 

People suffering from thyroid disorders can experience a lot of hair fall they may notice very brittle, dry, and dull hair.

5) Too much use of hair products and styling:

Hair-styling products like shampoo, conditioner, hair colour products or any other products that are used can make your hair weak and makes it more prone to breakage. 

Certain shampoos alkaline or basic can make the hair brittle and frizzy and cause the hair to break.  

6) Hereditary:

Hereditary could also be the reason for hair damage or loss. While the primary baldness gene is on the X chromosome which men get from their mothers. 

But the hereditary factor in the case of hair fall contributes very less in the case of men rather than women. 

But researchers also suggest that a man who has a bald father is more likely to follow the same pattern. 

7) Exposure to pollution or excessive heat:

The most common factor leading to hair damage is pollution as it is mostly unprotected it is very vulnerable to damage. 

Dirt, dust and other chemicals that are released through vehicles or factories can easily penetrate the skin of the scalp which causes irritation and leads to hair damage. 

The uses of polluted water or if you are exposed to excessive heat can also contribute to hair damage.  

8) Eating disorders:

Your food habit plays an integral part in promoting healthy hair. If the hairs are not supplied with necessary nutrients it automatically becomes weak, dull, or brittle. 

Nutrients like Vitamin A, C, D, and E, zinc, B Vitamins, iron, biotin, protein fatty acids which are essential for healthy hair growth can be found in food items like fish, egg, berries, green vegetables, sweet potatoes, avocados, etc.  

How to take care of your hair?

Before taking any steps to control your hair damage you should be aware of your hair type as mention earlier in this article. 

Below I have mentioned some of the steps or habits you could follow to control your hair damage:-

Tips for beautiful and healthy hairs

1) Cleanliness is important:

Itchy scalp or dandruff is one of the most important reasons for hair damage. Hence you should make it a habit of maintaining good cleanliness for beautiful and healthy hair.

2) Avoid washing your hairs every day:

Washing your hairs every day can strip off the oils produced by your scalp naturally which is helping your hair to keep healthy. 

When these oils are stripped away your hair becomes brittle and your scalp tends to overproduce oil which in turn makes your hair greasier. 

So, you should try to wash your hair every 2-3 days.

3) Get smarter while selecting your shampoo:

As we know that all shampoos or conditioners have such chemicals that strip oil and colour from your hair so you should always prefer a shampoo that says “damage repairing” or has proteins to strengthen the hairs or a cleansing conditioner which has the lowest concentration of protein. 

Avoid using products that have chemicals like sulphate and silicon which can clog up pores that produce natural oils and dry out your hair.

4)  Shampoo your hair gently:

The shampoo helps to get rid of dirt and dust that is caused by pollution or any other means. 

There are proper techniques to apply shampoo, rubbing harshly could cause damage to your hair. 

First, you should make your hair wet and then apply a small amount of shampoo on top of your hair and scalp and then gently massage your hair with your fingers. 

Rinse out all the shampoo with cold water avoid putting hot water on your scalp. 

5) Apply conditioner on the ends of hair:

After rinsing all the shampoos from your hair apply conditioner on the ends of your hair avoid applying it on the scalp run your fingers or comb it with a broad tooth comb and leave it for 3-5 minutes typically. And then rinse it off with cold water.

6) Oil treatment:

Try applying almond oil to treat your dry and damaged hair. 

The procedure is very simple to take some almond oil and heat it, and apply it on your hair evenly and leave it for about 40 mins  and then rinse it normally with shampoo using cold water.

7) Do not brush your wet hair:

Avoid brushing your hair when it is wet as it is much vulnerable and weaker at that time and thus easily breakable. 

As trichologist suggests first dry your hair with a towel and then gently brush your hair using a broad tooth comb. 

Stop using artificial drying technique which makes your hair more brittle and dry.
