When we spot a woman with gorgeous hair, the first thoughts that probably go through our mind are: How does she make it look that good? Which products did she use? Did she do that hairstyle herself? Which does she take care of her hair? Well, we’re here to reveal those little secrets for you, because as we all know, the way your hair looks is one of the most important parts of your overall beauty.
Tip #1: Avoid Heat Causing Electronic Tools
Please put down all your hot tools or devices like curling wands, hair straighteners, hairdryers, chemical relaxers or any other styles. These tools or styles will damage the so much and overuse of this not good for healthy hair. Avoid electronic devices on hair as much as possible. If you can’t avoid styling your hair which includes devices then ensure that you are using the heat protectant whenever you style your hair. If you have healthier hair then the growth of hair automatically follows with it.
Tip #2: Stay away from Hair bleaching
Bleach will cause significant damage to the hair. If you can’t stay away from bleach then you are going to experience 4 main problems with this.
1. Moisture: Hair bleaching will reduce the moisture of the hair, which causes the hair to become dry and damage.
2. Breakage: Often this is referred to as “chemical haircut” breakage. It opens up the cuticle of your hair strands and causing the hair to become even more brittle.
3. Burning: Bleaching can weaken the skin’s natural barrier when it makes contact with the skin. Sometimes it may cause redness and itching. It is common for the scalp to experience a certain sense of reaction as the bleaching solution comes into contact with the skin.
4. Discoloration: Discoloration happens when any area of the scalp gets in contact with the bleaching solution. After the hair bleaching effect, it will take a longer time to get back to natural color.
Tip #3: Choose Sulphate free Shampoo
We use shampoo to wash away the dirt, dust, and product buildup. The main purpose of shampoo is to clean the scalp and hair but most of the soaps are filled with harsh soaps called sulfates. These sulfates will cause extra damage to hair because they will reduce the natural oils which you needed for healthy hair. Ensure that you choose a shampoo that is sulfates free. If possible use the shampoo which includes natural or organic substances. Skip shampoo as much as possible.
Tip #4: Rinse Your Hair with cold water
Washing hair with cold water at the end of the shower can give you more added benefits for healthy hair and a boost for hair-growing power. Coldwater showers will help to prevent moisture loss, snags, and heat damage. You just need to do it for a few seconds, but this one extra step will bring a huge difference over time.
Be honest: Would you like to take a cold shower for healthy long hair?

Tip #5: Load up with the best conditioner
Many people will skip the conditioner when showering, which is the annoying thing for your hair. Especially when you’re trying for healthy and long hair. You should moisturize your hair every single time whenever you get a shower. Coloring and heat styling will cause the hair to breakage and shorter length after some time. Conditioner will take care of those things and it will replace the lipids and proteins inside the hair shaft as well as seal the outer cuticle.
Conditioner is the first defense against the damage that threatens your healthy and long-hair goals.
Tip #6: Brush or Comb your hair gently
When you detangle your hair with the brush or comb, make sure that you start from the bottom and work your way up slowly. We most often instinctually brush from the scalp down, which just pushes small tangles into a large knot and which results in loss of a lot of hair.
When you are hearing crunching through your strands that means, you are being too rough with your hair. Ensure that you use a well- designed brush or comb to avoid further hair loss.
Instead of using whatever janky brush, use Dr. Tanya's NuBrush Hair Massager and Scalp Rejuvenator. It is designed specially to avoid hair loss. Dr. Tanya is a Skincare Specialist, Inventor, Blogger, Medical Practitioner, Motivational Speaker, and received an international patent for Nu Sonic. You can use this brush for multi-purpose.

When you are massaging your scalp you can pour any type of serum in this brush it may be conditioner serum or treatment serum or whatever it may be.
Tip #7: Dry your hair with a microfiber towel instead of the hairdryer
Microfiber towels are much safer for wrapping. Many people almost always wrap hair too tight around the head, all those tiny and fragile strands around the hairline are stretched or pulled tight and prone to breaking. This process will lead to so much breakage and hair loss.
Tip #8: Switch to Silk or Satin Pillowcases
Do you use a cotton pillowcase? It could be the culprit for your matted hair and tangles when you wake up. Switch to satin or silk pillowcase to avoid tangles. It will have a softer surface that won’t cause friction with your hair and result in smoother, frizz-free hair every morning. It can improve hair and skin hydration and it can prevent wrinkles and fine lines.
Tip #9: Swap out your hair elastics to Avoid Tangles and Hair loss
The worst thing that can happen when you wear hair elastics with fasteners is that your hair gets tangled around the tangles. It will be extremely painful to remove those tangles and you have to spend a long time removing them. Another one that you need to avoid is the rubber band. Rubber bands will get tangled up the strands or it will stick to the hair and then leads to loss of hair in the process of removing tangles. Don’t use this even when you have nothing to wrap other than that.
Use the elastics which are made of fabric because they are much gentler.
Tip #10: Don’t Stick to one Hairstyle - Change up Your Hairstyle
Always wearing the same hairstyle will lead to hair damage and avoid hair up, in the same way, it will help to maintain the strength of your strands, which means they’ll continue to grow out strong and damage-free... The simple solution for this is changing your hairstyles. Try side ponytail, ponytail, topknot, bun or half-bun, braid, etc. Sometimes change the height of your ponytail.
Tip #11: Don’t apply too much pressure on hair while making hairstyle
Too many twists of the elastic can exert too much pressure while you are making a ponytail that will break your hair if you continue for a long time. Sometimes you will get a headache due to too much pressure. Hair may get damaged and it leads to hair fall.
The healthier scalp you have the more hair growth you will get.
Tip #12: Get Scalp Massage to Promote Hair Growth
Head massage will increase the blood circulation to the hair follicles.
