Caring for your hair can be difficult to master as what works for one person may not work for another. Whether you have short hair, long hair or afro hair, there are a number of simple changes you can make to your hair to keep it looking healthy without having to use any harsh chemicals. To get you started on your hair care journey, we have compiled a list of hair health tips and tricks that are sure to provide you with long-lasting results.

Never Dye Your Hair

Though dyeing your hair may seem like a good idea at first, this can lead to structural damage of the hair leaving lasting damage in the form of discolouration and dryness. This could take forever to grow out and can even lead to the hair becoming weak and falling out. Though a hair transplant is available for those that are experiencing a large amount of hair loss, nourishing shampoo and leave-in conditioner can help to replenish moisture and natural shine to the hair.

Massage Your Scalp

Though this may seem strange at first, frequently massaging the scalp will help to aid in hair growth and keep the scalp healthy as it will increase the blood flow in the long term. Whether this is when in the shower or just as a form of relaxation, this will help to drain toxins from the body as well as encourage the movement of oxygen to the scalp. This then, in turn, allows for the hair to stay in a prolonged state of growth without using any harsh chemicals that could cause prolonged irritation in the long term.

Try A Hair Mask

In addition to a scalp massage, either purchasing or Making your own hair masks can give your hair the natural food that it needs in order to grow. Whether you decide to choose a home-made egg white mask or a hair mask enriched with coconut oil, this can provide moisture, boost natural shine and strengthen the hair from root to tip. This is great for those that are looking to ensure natural shine, particularly in the winter as you can use items from your fridge and mix them with a natural oil for the best possible results every time.

Wash Your Hair In Cold Water

Though this may seem like one of the more unusual options on this list, washing your hair in cold water will help to retain the natural PH as well as close pores to prevent more dirt from clinging to the hair. This is great for those with long lengths as this will leave it looking visibly healthier without any irritation to the scalp. If you are unable to shower in cold water, why not try lukewarm water as this will provide the same effect but will be slightly more bearable than freezing cold water. Why not try this for yourself?

Whether you are looking to rejuvenate your hair entirely by trying some new hair care products or you are just looking to keep the hair looking healthy in the winter with the reduction of split ends, you can achieve amazing results by following some of these few simple rules.
