Who doesn’t want healthy hair? With all the damage our hair goes through on a daily basis from pollution, heat, chemical treatments, and poor nutrition, it is hard to find a balanced hair care routine. That is unless you have the right ingredients and oils. To help you out, I’ve put together a list of our top 10 ayurvedic hair oil picks. But first, let’s look at how you can adjust your hair care routine to improve hair health.
Steps To Building The Perfect Hair Care Routine
Step 1 – Identify Your Hair Type
There are four basic hair types – Oily, Dry, Combination, and Normal. The key to maintaining healthy hair is to adjust your hair care routine to suit your hair type.
Step 2 – Use Oils And Masks
Oiling plays a crucial role in hair care. It is a common misconception that oiling only helps people with normal or dry hair type. On the contrary, oiling can also help balance oil production in the scalp for people with oily hair, while keeping the hair conditioned and healthy. It is essential to oil your hair at least 2 times a week. Using nourishing hair masks at least once a week can also contribute towards greater hair health.
Step 3 – Shampoo
Shampooing more than three times a week can dry out your scalp and hair. People with oily hair often end up having to shampoo on alternate days, but this only worsens the problem. While shampoo removes the dirt and grease from your hair, it also pushes your sebaceous glands into overdrive, making them produce excess oil. In the long term, the excess production of oil will weaken your follicles and exhaust your sebaceous glands, leading to problems such as hair fall and brittle hair.
Step 4 – Condition
Conditioning your hair is essential as dehydration is your hair’s worst enemy. Oiling your scalp and hair will not only provide your hair with much-needed extra conditioning, but it can also balance oil levels in your scalp.
