What is unhealthy hair?
There are many signs that can indicate your hair is unhealthy and needs some maintenance. If you’re experiencing any of the following, then your hair requires help:
- Split ends
- Hair loss
- Dull hair
- Rough texture
- Flaking and dandruff
It’s important to take these signs seriously. Usually, healthy hair can grow back. But if it goes untreated, the damage can be irreversible. Remember, caring for your hair every day needs to be maintained as much as brushing your teeth.
Daily advice to maintain healthy hair:
Moisturise your hair daily
Depending on your hair type you may need to start moisturising your hair daily or every other day. If you want a natural moisturiser, try creating your own. Get a spray bottle with water, and add a moisturising oil (such as olive oil or black cumin oil).
There are so many great DIY recipes for daily moisturisers that you can customise to your healthy hair needs. But if you’re looking for products specifically designed to improve your hair condition and prevent hair loss you may want to try our product range.
Keep hair smooth
If you neglect to detangle your hair, you’ll eventually get knots that inhibit your growth and moisture absorption. When you’re detangling, (no matter what your hair type is) start from the ends of your hair and work your way to the roots.
Traction alopecia is a real risk when it comes to certain styles so make sure that you’re switching up how you wear your hair every now and then. Tight hairstyles can cause your hair to fall out so remember, the gentler the style the better to maintain your hair’s health. So experiment with loose braids, low buns, and low ponytails
Diets and vitamins
If you’re questioning how to strengthen hair, a balanced diet is crucial. It’s so important to get vitamins like A, B, iron, healthy fats (like omega-3 fatty acids), and D into your diet to make your hair strong, shiny, and dense.
Try consuming more eggs, spinach, lean meats, nuts, and/or seeds to strengthen the hair. If you have dietary restrictions, try taking supplements to fill in the gaps in your diet in order to prevent deficiencies from causing hair damage.
Use the right tools
Blow drying hair and using heat styling tools like a curling iron can cause damage so its important to limit their use and use hair tools that are soft on your hair. Boar bristle brushes have been globally celebrated thanks to their numerous benefits to your hair. The boar bristles are not only gentle on your hair but also distribute natural oils down the strands.
Weekly hair maintenance advice
Wash your hair thoroughly and the right amount
Thoroughly washing your hair removes product, oil, and dirt that can clog your pores. If you wash your hair too often you can suffer from hygral fatigue, where too much water enters your hair and causes damage. If you’ve been wondering how to wash hair properly, ensure to go easy on the scalp and be apply products once hair is completely wet.
Oily hair may need to be shampooed more frequently but in general we advise using shampoo and conditioner 2-3 times a week. If you’re still having issues with oily hair, styling products like dry shampoo can help with the appearance of healthy hair.
Gently drying your hair
The gentlest way to dry your hair is by using a microfiber towel or air drying. Using heat on damaged hair accelerates any splitting or brittleness that you already have.
Use a good deep conditioner
Deep conditioning is one of the best smooth hair tips. Deep conditioning bathes your hair in repairing and nourishing vitamins and oils that will make it stronger, longer, and shinier.
When looking for a nourishing conditioner, serum or oil, find one with your needs in mind. For example, if you deal with dry, brittle hair, we suggest investing in Dr. Balwi’s Black Seed Oil treatment.
Now, you can deep condition your hair bi-weekly or monthly to enjoy more good hair days. It really depends on your hair type and its needs.
Hair growth treatments in moderation
If you’re concerned about hair loss or thinning hair, it’s important to measure how much your hair is growing with normal hair care first before turning to medicines. It can cause damage if you use it more than instructed or if you have an allergy to these treatments.
Over time, if you’re seeing little to no results from healthy living and hair care, then talk to your doctor about using products like Minoxidil, Rogaine, and other hair treatments to stimulate hair follicles.
Monthly hair maintenance advice:
Trim your hair regularly
Trimming is one of the best ways to grow your hair. The ends of your hair are the oldest parts of your hair. They are more susceptible to damage and brittleness as well. We recommend checking your hair for damage and trimming those ends with professional scissors as often as you need to. Split ends can make their way to the root and effect the health of your hair.
Apply a deep conditioning hair mask
Once a month your hair needs to have a deeply nourishing treatment. This can be done by coating the hairs in nutrient-rich oils. Choosing the best oil for hair care will nourish your hair roots, promote hair growth, and thicken your hair.
Conclusion: promoting healthy hair growth
Overall, the first signs of unhealthy hair include breakage and split-ends among other things. If these signs start to appear, it’s your hair telling you that it needs some urgent attention.
There are things that you can do on a daily, weekly and monthly basis that help to keep your hair healthy. Including these within your hair care routine will promote the growth of healthy and beautiful hair.
