How to Achieve Healthy Hair at Home: 4 Simple Ways

Have you ever had a hair day so good that it actually boosted your mood? When your hair looks and feels good, it can give you that well-deserved confidence boost. Don’t you wish that every day could be a good hair day? 

Every day can be a good hair day when your strands are healthy and are provided with the proper hair care they deserve. For starters, here are four ways to achieve healthy hair at home with the help of Herbal Essences products.

1. When it’s wet, don’t brush it yet

Hair is at its most fragile when it’s wet. Hairbrushes usually have bristles that are not friendly to wet strands. When used on wet hair, it can lead to breakage and hair damage. Instead, use a wide-tooth comb when combing damp hair to avoid tangles, breakage, and hair damage.

2. Wash your hair with the right water temperature

Washing your hair with too cold or too hot water can lead to hair loss, dullness, and dry hair. When strands are exposed to hot water, it becomes dry, brittle, and strips off its natural oils. Hot water can also damage your roots, which can cause premature graying of some strands. Cold water, on the other hand, causes the cuticles of hair to close and reduce the volume of your hair. This leads to strands looking limp and unhealthy. 

To maintain healthy and stronger hair, wash your hair with warm water to help open its cuticles and pores on the scalp. Dirt or build-up are removed more effectively, and minimal hair damage is expected when you use warm water.

3. Air-dry your hair, the right way

Minimal hair damage helps maintain healthy hair. While air-drying has many benefits, it’s particularly essential if you’re trying to avoid damage. Exposing your hair to extreme heat from blow-drying causes dry hair, especially when done often. 

When air-drying hair, it’s ideal to pat dry your hair first with a microfiber towel or a cotton shirt to get rid of the excess moisture after wash. Try to not tousle or rub your hair to avoid tangles and breakage. Once hair is damp, you can comb it with your fingers or with a wide-tooth comb.
