Envy tips for healthy hair

healthy hair journey

Who would have thought that hair’s the first thing to start ageing, right from when you’re 12?
And consequent hormonal, nutritional and health changes don’t really slow down the process either. Invest time and energy into your hair – right from the early days – and you’ll have little to worry about.

We give you some tips for a healthy hair journey…

  • Moisturised hair equals healthy hair. So, don’t overdo the styling, heating or drying as it dehydrates your locks.
  • Watch what you eat: A protein-rich diet is essential for strong, healthy hair. Don’t worry though, it’s not like you need to avoid carbohydrates and fats. The key is to eat in moderation.
  • Spend two minutes a day kneading the scalp. It increases circulation to boost the health and thickness of your hair.
  • Get yourself a head massage every other week. It’ll do wonders to maintain hair health and also help relax your mind.

I love doing the ’60s bouffant. Will backcombing damage my hair?1hairstyle60shaircolourroom
“Excessive backcombing will definitely give you split-ends,” says Ambika Pillai, make-up artist and hairstylist. It causes hair breakage, especially at the crown and leaves hair feeling brittle. Use volumising products instead. I can’t live without my hair straightener.

How can I avoid damaged hair?
“Heat stylers strip the hair off Keratin, the protein from the hair,” says Dilshad Pastakia, celebrity hair expert and hair consultant for Sunsilk Keratinology. So, remember to dry your hair completely before styling. Use a heat resistant product that’s specifically for hot irons.

Sans titre 2What’s the best way to grow out a bob or short hair?
Adhuna Akhtar, creative director at b:blunt, says, “It’s better to trim or style the hair every six to eight weeks so that you are able to maintain it through the growing out period, and to help prevent split ends. Regular scalp massages will help stimulate blood flow for a healthy scalp and therefore healthy hair.” Use serums designed to seal split-ends temporarily.

What kind of hair colours and styles can make you look younger?
When you’re older, opt for lighter hair colours as they soften the face. Bangs are great to cover wrinkles while layers lift the face. “Soft colours like reds and browns are good to project a younger look as opposed to blondes and ash,” says Coleen Khan, owner Coleen’s salon and hair expert for Pantene.

How do you maintain shiny, healthy hair?

Is it okay to lose hair?
“We shed about 50-100 strands of hair a day,” says Fiama Di Wills hair expert, Sapna Bhavnani. But if the root bulb – the white coloured end of the hair follicle – is missing from a strand of hair, then that’s a sign of breakage. Hairstylist Namrata Soni says, “If you find too much hair fall in the shower or on your pillow, it’s time to see a hair doctor.”

What protects hair from environmental damage?
“A leave-in product or UV heat protecting serum adds moisture to the hair cuticle and forms a protective layer, so there is little damage from pollution,” says Rod Anker, director of Rod Anker Salon.

“Individuals have different hair types and textures. That’s why it’s important to use a products suited to your scalp and hair type,” says Rossano Ferretti, hairstylist and owner of Rossano Ferretti salon.

What should I eat to get healthy hair?
Dr Madhuri Agarwal, medical head, west zone, Kaya Skin Clinic suggest a diet rich in protein and nutrients like zinc, magnesium, iron and vitamin B. Also drink at least eight to 10 glasses a day.
