Pay special attention to your scalp

First, you have to take good care of your scalp. Why? Because your scalp is the point from which your hair grows. It determines the amount of hair you produce as well as its health and growth. The moment you neglect your scalp, it can impact the thickness of your hair and the number of hair follicles you produce. The worst side effect of neglecting your scalp is for you to start losing your hair.


Do not shampoo your hair every day

Yes, it's important to shampoo your hair, but doing it every day can be more harmful to your hair than you might expect. Why? Your scalp secretes oil into the hair to keep it nourished and healthy. The shampoo you use can impact the oil secretion, making your hair weak and dull. Although shampooing is for personal hygiene, only apply it to your hair every other day so that you won’t defeat the purpose of keeping your hair healthy and strong. If you use waxes be sure to get a quality degreasing shampoo like Uppercut Deluxe, see in store for more on this.


Do not forget to apply conditioner

While men regularly shampoo their hair, they tend to miss out on using a hair conditioner. Most women feel the need to use the conditioner on a daily basis because it helps nourish their hair as a way to replenish the lost oil. So, while your shampoo strips the needed oil from your hair, the conditioner helps put it back, making your hair grow healthier. For this reason, apply a hair conditioner often, and work it through from your scalp to the ends of your hair.


Be gentle when brushing or fixing your hair

There are a few practices that you do that may be harming your hair. These include recklessly drying your hair with a towel, using a blow dryer that is too hot, having a scolding hot shower, or pulling your hair. All these can significantly damage your hair. Once the hair follicle is ruined from above, it is hard for them to recover.


Be wary of the styling products you use
