Great looking hair is more than just great looking. Keeping your hair well-groomed helps to reduce hair loss and boosts your confidence. Roots are the second most important part of our hair that comes right after the scalp. If you pamper your scalp without paying attention to the hair roots, your hair will never get long, strong and beautiful.
But, despite all the benefits, and the fact that your hair accounts for a huge part of your overall appearance, your approach to your hair’s health is probably completely backwards.
It is easy to simply pay attention to the part of your hair that you can see, yet the most neglected part of your hair-care routine may end up to be the most important.
Just like healthy, beautiful flowers bloom bigger and brighter in healthier soil, making your hair look its absolute best means tending to the health of your scalp and roots first. It is the secret to good hair. With only a few simple changes to your routine, you can now take great care of your hair roots without any hassle. Here are just a few things you can do regularly to achieve the healthiest, strongest and best-looking hair by tending to its roots and scalp.
1. Brush your scalp
Gently brushing your hair daily helps to keep it untangled. At the same time, do remember to gently brush your scalp too. When you do that, you help to get rid of dead skin cells that can clog the pores on your scalp and distribute the healthy oils throughout your hair. Brushing your scalp also stimulates blood circulation under your scalp, which brings more nutrients to the roots of your hair.
2. Shampoo only a few times weekly
Since we devote so much time and attention to how our hair looks, it is easy to think that we should also shampoo the hair as frequently as possible. However, it is crucial to understand that when you shampoo your hair every day, you strip away the healthy oils produced by your scalp to strengthen each strand. The scalp will also become dry, which can promote hair loss.
3. Use the right conditioner
While you may have been told to avoid conditioners, the right ones help to return moisture to your scalp after you shampoo. Look for a conditioner that includes plant oils such as rosemary oil, olive oil or tea tree oil, and gently massage all over your scalp as you apply the conditioner. When you take care of your hair from the scalp out, instead of the other way around, not only will it be healthier and younger looking, it will respond better to everything you do to make it look great, including styling and colour.
4. Following a well-balanced diet
When it comes to treating hair roots the best way, the importance of proper diet cannot be ignored. Protein is the building block of our hair and therefore, you need to follow a well-balanced diet stuffed with vitamins, antioxidants and different types of proteins in order to make your hair roots grow. Some of the most beneficial foods that should be included in your diet are milk, fish, egg, soy, fresh fruits and green vegetables, as well as foods rich in omega 3 like salmon, walnuts and spinach.
5. Drinking Lots of Water
Our body is made up of 70% water, so keeping your body hydrated definitely helps a lot in strengthening your hair roots and promoting their growth. Make sure that you drink at least 8 glasses of water each day. It will induce enough moisture into the cells and stimulate their normal functions. As a result, your hair roots will get stronger by the day, which will ultimately give you long and beautiful hair.
Similarly, the right scalp and root treatments can help to break down any build-ups, stimulate circulation, and nourish follicles, giving you the best hair ever.
