Hi, my name is Maja Tisma and I am the co-founder and editor of I work as a professional graphic designer and blogger, but I have (as most of women probably) a big passion for beauty & health.

Pro-tips for making your hair healthier than ever

No doubt for many women, hair forms a vital part of how attractive they feel. Hair, when healthy, can make you look vibrant and can give a significant boost to your looks. Science is advancing every day, and measures like cloning, stem cell regeneration, gene therapy and other cosmetic treatments are gaining popularity. But even without those things, a little care and consistent effort can surely help to improve the texture of your hair to a great extent and help you maintain beautiful, strong and healthy hair.

1. Identify your hair texture

Your hair texture may range from dry or oily to thick or thin, from dense or scarce to curly or smooth, or even to strong or fragile. Depending on the kind of hair, a proper hair care routine can be suggested.

You would need to pick up your shampoo based on your hair type and hair texture. Any popular brands are good enough to be tried, but make sure to apply the accompanying conditioner that comes with your shampoo. A lot of women skip the conditioning part of hair care, which is why their hair gets tangled, dry and fragile when exposed to summer heat and pollution. Conditioners also come in wide range depending on your hair requirements.

2. Ask for professional help

Seeking professional help is not a bad idea. A dermatologist will help you understand your skin requirements as well, while a general practitioner will give you a holistic view of your diet, hair care, fitness play and products best suited for your skin.

A lot of times multivitamins and B-complexes help provide you with the much-needed supplements, which can curb problems with hair falling out. Vitamins also improve the texture of your hair and skin to a great extent, but you should seek professional advice rather than just directly popping these pills.

3. Say goodbye to hot water

Avoid washing your hair with hot water. Hot water damages the skin and the hair follicles by making the hair roots weak and removing the necessary moisture from the scalp. It is always advised to use lukewarm water to bathe on a regular basis.

4. Massage your scalp

The fourth tip is oiling your hair at least once a week. Oiling might not be needed for all hair types, but it surely helps to give the right massage to your scalp and improves the blood circulation to the scalp as well. This increased blood circulation, in return, provides the hair with the required nutrition.

5. Use the right brush

Using the right brush or comb is a pretty simple hair secret. Using a wide toothed comb and a good quality brush is important. Brushes with soft, high quality bristles help to protect your hair from weakening.

The best way to take care of your hair is by balancing your diet, your work out, your hair products and your heat exposure. Always remember, it's never too late to start taking care of your hair.
