Healthy Hair and Scalp- Do's and Don'ts

For longer and healthier hair, you should look into how well you're treating your scalp. Getting gorgeous hair has so much to do with its roots.  Here you’ll find some of our professional secrets to getting the lustrous strands you desire.
1. Supplements:
Adding a supplement with the right balance of vitamins can help you achieve maximum lengths. Look for a formula made for hair that has biotin, silica, vitamins B, C, and E, iron, and omega-3 fatty acids.

2. Effects of Birth Control on Hair Thinning: 
High levels of testosterone in women can actually lead to excess shedding; contraceptives regulate the hormones to help decrease hair loss. If you notice your hair is thinning but you don't see shedding, it's time to make a dermatologist appointment, as this could be a sign of female-pattern thinning. It's also wise to ask for a thyroid check.

3. Effects of Diet:
 If you suffer from a dry scalp, try incorporating more omega-3 fatty acids and fish oils into your diet. Vegans should also make sure to supplement their diet with protein and iron for maximum hair and scalp health.

5. Getting your hair dyed shouldn't tingle:
 A lot of people who have scalp problems don't even know it, If you go get your hair colored and feel a tingling, then there is a possibility that your scalp is really dry. And it will only worsen over time, which can lead to dandruff, inflammation, unhealthy hair follicles, and, potentially, hair loss.

6. Scalp exfoliation:
Just like you exfoliate the skin on your face, your scalp can also benefit from a good scrub. Adding a few spoonfuls of sugar to your shampoo to help get rid of dead skin cells, using the pads of your fingers to work the mixture in really works. Always avoid using your fingernails when scrubbing. For heavy buildup, try a salicylic acid shampoo once a week.

7. Using conditioner: 
Some people don't use conditioner on their scalp because they're afraid to clog pores or weigh down fine hair.  But just like your face requires moisturizer, your scalp benefits from hydration. Just make sure your conditioner is non-comedogenic, so that you can actually use it from roots to ends. Adding a drop of oil to your leave-in conditioner for extra moisture really helps.
