Seven ways to make those gorgeous locks shine.

Don’t you love the confidence a healthy shiny mane gives you? Gorgeous hair enhances your looks like nothing else. A simple hair cut can give your entire face a makeover!

 

Here are 7 ways to get rid of bad-hair days and to add lustre to those beautiful locks!

 

  • 1. Get rid of split-ends!

    Split-ends can leave your hair looking lifeless and dull. Make sure you trim your hair or get a haircut once in 6 months to do away with damaged tresses. That will make your hair look healthier, adding good volume and shine to it. [1]

  • 2. Deep conditioning

    Make sure you take a deep conditioning treatment every month or once in two months. It can be a regular hair spa or a hair pack you can make at home. Conditioning the hair is very necessary to add that extra sheen. Since hair is made primarily of protein, eating protein rich foods like eggs, pulses and nuts can do wonders. [2]

  • 3. Go natural

    It is a good idea to give your hair an occasional break from chemicals. Homemade hair packs, together with application of high protein products like egg and curd are known to deep condition and improve the health of hair. [3]

  • 4. Occasional oil massage before shampooing

    Yes! And oil massage before shampooing ensures the hair retains it natural oils even after the wash. A massage also stimulates the growth of new hair by improving blood circulation. Be it coconut oil or olive oil, or even luxury oils, such as Argan oil, a regular oil massage does help in adding that gloss to your hair! [4]

  • 5. Use the right products

    Use the right hair products that suit your hair. Avoid excessive use of chemicals, which might not just damage your hair texture but also cause hair fall.

  • 6. Rinse with cold water

    Avoid washing your hair with hot water. Let it be either lukewarm or cold. Heat loosens the hair cuticles and makes them weak and dry. Giving a final cold-water rinse to your hair after shampooing ensures long lasting shine.

  • 7. Blow-Dry correctly

    Lastly, you’ve surely seen those girls who look like they have a salon finished look to their hair no matter what time of the day it is! It’s because they know the secret of blow drying their hair correctly. Though heat can be damaging to hair, by using a hair protecting serum, you can protect your hair and get a controlled style by blow drying. [5]

A strict hair-care routine is a must for shiny, bouncy hair and to give that edge to your appearance, Not only will this leave your hair healthy and manageable but it will also prevent hair-fall and dandruff.

I have dandruff which does not go even with an antidandruff shampoo. i have to colour my hair regularly. my hair is thiining on my forehead. what should i do?

Dear suman, if your dandruff is persistent along with some fungal infection on the scalp, it is better to consult a dermatologist. fungal infections on the scalp may not just lead to graying of hair, but may also result in hair-fall and baldness.

jjayakumar@glenmarkpharma.com

Dear manpreet, for healthier, shinier and long hair it is important to take a healthy and balanced diet with lots of proteins and fruits. to reduce dandruff, wash your hair frequently and take steam once in a week or ten days. this will keep your scalp clean and healthy. also, don't forget to drink plenty of water. consult a hair and skin expert to ensure that there are no medical reasons for dandruff and dull hair. you can also search for a dermatologist near you on the site.

I am 19 years old and i do not have a bounce in hair above my forehead and it makes my forehead look bigger .....what should i do......i don't have dandruff problem but i have hairfall problem. plz help!

Thinning of hair often leads to less bounce in the crown area hair which gives the impression of a larger forehead. factors such as iron deficiency, stress, environmental pollution and low protein intake can cause hair fall and thinning. you should up your intake of protein rich foods such as dairy products, pulses, soya, eggs and lean meats. have iron rich foods like green leafy vegetables and whole grains. you can opt for a volumising shampoo to give your hair a bounce. protect your hair from environmental agents such as dust and uv rays. avoid heat and chemical treatments for your hair. consult your dermatologist in case the problem persists.

Hey m 18 n m having hair fall that too i have oily hair so i have to wash them on alternative days else itching starts ..and m also having dandruff in my hair. plz suggest me some remedy ?!?

As far as dandruff is concerned i suggest my patients to use a ketoconazole containing shampoo. use it every alternate day in the beginning and once you notice improvement in your dandruff reduce the frequency of application to twice weekly and then once weekly. but you need to continue this for a long time as dandruff is a chronic disease and needs to be kept under control. you can also consider using lotion containing clotrimazole and beclomethasone on the affected areas of the scalp twice daily along with tablet ketoconazole 200 mg once daily. continue this for 2 weeks and revert back. these are prescription medicines and you need to see the doctor in person to get them. there are many causes of hair loss and treatment depends on the cause. the most commonly causes encountered by me are male pattern baldness, thyroid disorders, anemia, certain drugs, fevers like typhoid and malaria,chronic diseases, surgery and after delivery. i recommend you to undergo haemoglobin, serum ferritin levels and tsh test to rule out the anemia and thyroid disease.

There are various reasons for hair fall such as genetic, poor diet, stress, certain medications and harsh hair treatments etc.. it is important to note that a balanced and nutritious diet can go a long way in preventing hair fall. for enhanced hair growth opt for high protein foods such as diary products, pulses and lentils. if you are a non-vegetarian, go in for eggs and lean meat, wonder foods for hair. avoid harsh chemical treatments and keep your hair conditioned. apart from this, tight ponytails and too much pulling and tugging of hair should be avoided. we do not advise home remedies as they may or may not be effective at times. it is advisable to consult your dermatologist and undergo proper treatment for your problem.

Hair fall is increasingly becoming a common problem among youngsters. stress, environmental pollution, lack of proper nutrition and improper care are few reasons for excessive hair fall. when it comes to diet, protein and omega 3 fats are good for hair. nuts, pulses, milk, eggs, lean meat, fish are some hair healthy foods which you must consume regularly. make sure you drink lot of fluids. below are some tips to prevent hair fall: 1..avoid excessive use of heat treatments such as blow dry, ironing and straightening. 2. do not tie your hair very tightly as it leads to breakage. 3. cover your head when going out 4. do not comb hair when it is wet. consult your dermatologist if hair fall persists.

I am 25 years old.after pregnancy my hair started falling huge,now i got lots of drandrof,..what can i do..i live in a village ..here i can't got a doctor..

It can be common issue during lactation. the hair follicles do not go into resting phase during pregnancy and you seem to have full hair. immediately after pregnancy there is compensation where the hair that was preserved during pregnancy will be shed off as those follicles are dead and shed the hair. for dandruff, you may use a ketoconazole based otc shampoo e.g nizral shampoo or selinium sulphide shampoo e.g candid tv shampoo. shampoo every alternate days. wet your scalp and lather the shampoo well into the scalp and allow it to act for at least 5 minutes before rinsing it off.
