Depending on where you look, you’ll find a lot of advice about exactly what your hair needs to be healthy. Find out the truth with Head & Shoulders.
What a lot of the tips boil down to, however, is moisture – either minimising how much moisture your hair loses during the day, or general tips on how to put more moisture into your hair.
Alongside this is the need for nutrients. Moisture is the foundation for healthy hair, whilst nutrition feeds your scalp from the inside out.
So, let’s have a look at what you can do to satisfy your hair care needs.
Keeping hair moisturised
When your hair dries out, you’ll find that it becomes brittle, dull and prone to breakage.
This is because your hair relies on moisture to stay strong and healthy – and to maintain a glossy shine.
There are a couple of ways to do this:
- A good shampoo and conditioner, like the Head & Shoulders Supreme range, helps moisturise your hair when you wash it
- Some substances, like coconut oil or the argan oil found in the Supreme range, can boost your hair’s moisture
- Taking care of your scalp will ensure that your hair stays healthy too, so it’s important to ensure that the products will moisturise your scalp as well
If you find that your scalp’s getting itchy, make sure to use a soothing product like Head & Shoulders Supreme Moisture to help combat these symptoms.
Feeding your hair
Your hair relies on specific nutrients to grow and stay healthy.
Some of these needs can be satisfied by your diet: Protein, vitamins A, C and E, as well as minerals and Omega 3 fatty acids should all be included in your meals.
You can further supplement your diet with hair products as well. The new Head & Shoulders Supreme Moisture shampoo & conditioner contains Argan Oil. Argan oil is well know for carrying many of the vitamins in your hair needs as well as fatty acids.
If your hair is nourished, but still giving you problems, it may be worth looking at your haircare routine.
Caring for your hair
Many styling methods can damage your hair: excessive heat styling and tightly pulled styles can both damage or dry out your hair.
To avoid this, give your hair a break from these kinds of styling every few weeks. Trimming split ends will also ensure that your hair is healthy from root to tip – split hair can travel up the hair as well, so it’s important to keep an eye on this.
Keeping your hair healthy and smooth doesn’t have to be complicated. All it takes is a little understanding of what your hair needs.
