Damaged, brittle hair that is prone to breakage and hair loss can cause anyone to get worried. If your hair seems weak or if you’ve been losing a lot of it, you may need to step up your hair care game. Here are a few tips on how you can improve your habits and strengthen your hair:

 

Style Carefully 

Styling your hair makes your look neat, presentable, and put together. However, constant styling, especially with heated tools like blow dryers and flat irons, can take a toll on your hair. If you aren’t careful to prep your hair before styling, you could damage your hair and cause it to become brittle and prone to breakage.

 

Protect your hair before using heated tools by applying a heat protectant spray or serum, or consider using accessories like hair extensions to quickly change your hairstyle without putting a lot of stress on your hair. You can shop high quality hair extensions at https://truegloryhair.com.

 

When shopping for hair extensions, look for bundles from trusted and reputable companies like True Glory Hair. Their hair extensions are well made and feature real virgin hair, so they are durable and look and feel realistic. True Glory Hair offers a wide range of Brazilian and Indian hair extensions, with different lengths and styles including wavy, straight, and curly, so you can find a hair bundle that matches your natural hair exactly.

 

These high quality hair extensions can last years with proper care and maintenance, making them a great invest for anyone who likes experimenting with different hairstyles and changing up their look.

 

Condition Regularly 

Most people shampoo regularly to keep their scalp and hair clean and fresh, but you might be surprised to learn that not everyone regularly conditions their hair. Conditioner keeps your hair healthy and strong by moisturizing and protecting it.

 

Conditioning your hair regularly is a must, especially if you have curly or textured hair, as these types tend to dry out easily. The best way to condition your hair is to apply the product to damp—not dripping wet—hair and working it evenly through your strands using your fingers. Work in sections, giving extra attention to hard to reach areas, and rinse well until you no longer feel any slippery residue on your hair strands.

 

Apply Natural Oils

Natural oils like coconut, jojoba, olive, and argan oil can do wonders to keep your hair looking healthy, shiny and bouncy. They can also help strengthen your hair by nourishing it and making it less prone to breakage and hair fall. If you have curly or textured hair, regularly applying a natural oil can keep it from becoming frizzy and brittle, so it won’t break easily.

 

Get the Right Nutrients

What you eat and put into your body plays a big part in keeping your hair healthy and strong. Make sure you’re getting all the right nutrients and vitamins for optimum hair health. Getting the right nutrients will not only strengthen your hair, but it will also benefit your skin and nails as well.

 

The best vitamins and nutrients for strong, healthy hair are Vitamins A, B, C, D, E, iron, zinc, and biotin. These can all be found in fresh fruits and vegetables, fish and nuts. If you feel you’re not getting enough of these nutrients from the food you eat, you may consider taking supplements.

 

Follow these tips consistently, and you should soon notice an improvement in the condition of your hair. With proper hair care and maintenance, you’ll have strong, healthy hair in no time.
