Long and voluminous hair strands swaying with the wind look like nothing less than an introductory scene from a Bollywood movie. To put this straight, attractive hair changes our personality and gives us a polished look. Whereas unkempt hair and frizzy tresses are a massive pull down. To add volume to your mane and grow your hair into beautiful shiny ones, we got in touch with 3 hair experts. With the help of their expert tips, you may plan to reverse the hair damage and fix your hair texture.
Health Shots spoke to Dr. Ashini Bhatt, Hair expert, Kaya, CG Road, Ahmedabad, who listed five golden rules which you can follow to tame your tresses.
Dandruff, oily scalp, dry and itchy scalp could be one of the major reasons for unhealthy scalp which lowers the potential of healthy hair.
Choosing shampoos and products judiciously can create a lot of difference. For example, curly hair needs a lot of moisture while straight hair needs a very little moisture in order to optimize their appearance.
Heat-less styling is the trend these days but if you are styling your tresses with heat based devices make sure you use heat protection spray and try switching to less damaging methods.
Avoid using hot water for washing your hair to retain the natural oils and moisture. It can also damage the cuticle of hair and make it frizzier.
Frequently perming, straightening, colouring can damage your hair and eventually make them brittle and dull.
Dr. Kaustav Guha Director, R&D Division, SkinKraft Labs rolled out some tips based on his deep insights about hair health:
“The hair fiber is made of three morphological layers: cuticle, cortex and medulla. While the medulla forms the innermost part of the hair shaft, the cortex forms the middle layer to which the mechanical properties of the hair are attributed. And, the cuticle is the outermost layer, which acts as a protective barrier for the cortex against environmental damage,” says Dr Guha.
Health Shots also got in touch with Vipin Sharma, hair expert, Product and Research manager at Fixderma India Pvt Ltd., who lists 5 of his favourite hair care tips to get voluminous hair.
Sharma says “Hair is the crown you never want to take off. And believe it or not, it’s also one of the most abused part of our body. It gets exposed every day to pollution, harsh sunlight, weather change, friction from sleeping incorrectly, aftereffects of improper diet, chemical treatments. But also if one follows the basic maintenance tips, it’s the easiest asset to manage.”
It depends upon the nature of your scalp and type of your hair, but every hair needs conditioning. It ensures vitality and luster of your hair. Choose pre-conditioning (hair mask, oiling) or post (conditioner, serums), but never skip it.
It’s essential to keep the scalp and hair clean to control hair fall, scalp infection and maintain hair growth.
Always maintain a balanced diet to maintain healthy hair. Protein sufficiency is very important for hair health. Take your supplements seriously.
That’s true even in the case of hair care. Avoid excessive heat and chemical treatment to maintain them tresses
It applies not only for your face but also for your hair. Basis your concern and need for the hair, indulge in hair masks at least once in every fortnight.
