Use a gentle shampoo for sensitive scalp, which contains a sugar-based tenside agent and an active moisturizing compound for gentle cleansing action to protect and stabilize the hair structure and health of the scalp. Always use a shampoo with a pH value of 5.5 for prevention of hair and scalp dehydration and strengthening of the physiological acid mantle. The other good daily hair care routines to adopt are:
Sulfates are chemicals that make shampoos lather up. Parabens are preservatives that cause irritation and eye problems after prolonged use. Alkaline shampoos disrupt the scalp (protection barrier), leading to moisture loss and penetration of irritants leading to hair and scalp damage. Shampoos with pH 5.5 strengthen the scalp’s protective barrier. Aim to shampoo your hair at most every other day or twice a week.
After you get out of the shower:
Brushing your hair stimulates the hair roots which promotes growth, but brushing too often will cause damage to your hair strands that results in frizz and split ends. Regular combing, preferably twice a day, is very important.
The best way to get rid of split ends is to regularly trim your hair. Many women with perfect hair never have split ends because they make it a priority to get their hair trimmed or trim it themselves, every 2 months.
Give your hair the right amount of vitamins. Eat balanced diet rich in lean proteins, whole grains, fruits and vegetables. Make sure you get plenty of vitamin C, it strengthens hair. In addition, iron helps transport oxygen to blood vessels, zinc grows and repairs tissue and omega-3-fatty acids grow healthy hair.
