Black Hair Care- Natural and Easy Tips To Manage Your Black Hair
Your Lifestyle Needs Some Major Changes!
Most of you probably don’t know this, but your lifestyle plays a very important role in your hair health. Your lifestyle can positively or negatively influence how your hair looks and feels. There are some bad triggers which should be avoided and erased from your lifestyle in order to get fresh, healthy hair. Here’s a list of them:
- Lack of sleep
- Alcohol consumption
- Use of too many hair styling products
- Poor diet
If some or all of these habits are a part of your lifestyle then you need to make some major changes quickly!
Alter Your Eating Habits
Eating greasy, fatty food can lead to hair breakage and hair fall. This is because when your body does not get the nourishment it needs, it starts to ignore what it considers insignificant components and starts to push whatever nourishment it does get towards the more important or vital components. Hence hair and nails suffer from lack of nourishment.
- A once a week hot oil treatment with olive or coconut oil will help keep your scalp and hair nourished.
- If you suffer from dandruff, try using natural remedies such as neem and mint instead of using dandruff shampoos. This is because dandruff shampoos tend to be harsh on your hair and can make your hair extremely dry and brittle.
- If you are someone who shampoos their hair every day, then try to cut down slowly. Go from daily shampooing to thrice a week or twice a week. Shampooing every day can result in your hair follicles getting damaged, not to mention that your scalp will be stripped of its natural oils.
- Avoid using a blow dryer to dry your hair. Regular blow drying can lead to a dry scalp and split ends. So towel dry and let your hair air-dry naturally as much as possible.
- Never brush your hair when it is wet. Your hair is most fragile when it is wet. So let it dry completely before you take a comb or brush to it.
- As for black hair tips for growth, apart from using amla and curry leaves in your haircare regime, make sure you also ingest them. Amla and curry leaves are great for black hair as they keep it shiny and prevent premature greying. So make them a regular addition to your diet.
