Health is Wealth. Hair Fall becomes the biggest problem because it alters the external beauty of a person, but maintaining a healthy hair is completely in your hands. Balanced Diet, maintaining a clean scalp, staying hydrated, coconut oil – Virgin Coconut Oil preferably, lesser usage of chemical based shampoo and hair colours will be the cautions for not damaging the hair. Firstly let’s see 10 tips which can be followed to avoid hair fall and strengthens the hair.

1. Maintain a balanced diet

Many people don’t realise that what they eat can impact the strength and overall appearance of their hair. Above all diet of the 13 essential vitamins, including Vitamin A and E, you can keep your hair strong, shiny and healthy.

2.Massage Your Scalp

Massaging your scalp and gently washing it with luke warm water helps to improve the blood circulation in the scalp. Moreover it also evenly spreads the oils that you massage with making the roots strong and help to keep your hair hydrated.

In addition with the above statement massage with coconut oil gradually increases the chances of good, long and strong hair. Hair oils are effective for hair growth and act as natural conditioners as they are packed with essential vitamins that are necessary for your scalp health.

3.Braid before bed

When you lie in bed, your hair can become tangled, so before you hit the hay, put it into a loose plait. Above all the structure of the braid will keep your hair tangle-free, and as a bonus you’ll wake up with soft waves too!

4.Stay Hydrated

Your hair needs moisture to stay strong and grow without which your hair will become brittle and form split ends. So take a step back and ask yourself, are you drinking enough water? and sorry, coffee doesn’t count ; )

5.Condition Your Hair Regularly

It is important that you should condition your hair from time to time. Same as a mild shampoo, use a mild conditioner. Applying an appropriate amount of conditioner will keep your hair shiny and smooth.

It will keep your hair free from knots that will not lay stress on your hair roots and will prevent hair breakage. It helps manage frizzy hair while adding shine and volume to it.

6.Keep products to a minimum

You may be tempted to layer up the haircare products on the assumption that it will make your hair appear sleeker and shinier. However, too many haircare products can weigh down your hair and sometimes make it appear greasy. As a general rule of thumb, you should use four products on your hair: shampoo, conditioner, heat protector and a styling product.

7.Use Natural Oils and Treatments

It can be difficult to sift through all the brands and products out there and determine which hair product is, in fact, the most beneficial.

Above all the answer is just to keep it simple and natural.

Here are a few products that are known for promoting luscious hair:

Experiment with them yourself, and discover which treatments your hair responds to best!

8.Don’t use a towel to dry your hair

Now, after learning the tricks of washing your hair, it’s time to cover how to dry it. Most people habitually dry their hair with a regular old bath towel.

As it turns out, that is one of the worst ways to dry your hair. It can lead to damage and excessive dryness.

If you have been using a regular towel for a while now, don’t worry! Simply swap out your towel with an old t-shirt or microfiber cloth.

My personal favourite is to use a bamboo hair towel. These are amazing since they:

  • Are light and easy on your hair
  • Don’t collect bacteria
  • Don’t develop a bad smell
  • Dry quickly

Whatever you use, just don’t go back to drying (damaging) your hair with a regular bath towel!

9.Don’t over-colour your hair

This can do a lot of damage to your hair so try to limit how often you dye it – if you just need to recolour your roots, look for specific root touch-up kits that only need to be applied to the problem area, minimising damage to the rest of your mane. No-ammonia hair dyes are a great choice too, as they are gentler than some other colourants.


Before taking any hair supplement consult a dermatologist to know what are the best supplements for your hair type. These supplements will give you the required nutrients that we need for a better scalp.

They not only protect your hair but also boost the hair growth. Take the supplement that are rich in vitamins and minerals.
