3. Sleep late

Proper sleep is important for your hair especially in the post-Covid phase. Sleeping helps production of melatonin which has been linked to hair growth. On the other hand, not getting enough sleep can lead to a variety of negative impacts on your physical health, including hair loss or hair thinning.

So ladies, avoid making these mistakes and follow the tips that Rujuta suggests to maintain good hair health.
