It is clinically proven to fight hair loss and includes an FDA-approved ingredient that helps regrow hair. Keranique not reactivates hair follicles to stimulate hair regrowth but also helps repair existing damage.

Protect Hair From Heat

It is not possible to avoid the heat altogether, but if you reduce the exposure of heat to the hair, it can help prevent damage and brittleness. Minimize the use of blowers by using them only when you need to dry hair urgently.

Use Simple Hairstyles

Overnight care of hair includes using a simple hairstyle that can prevent unnecessary stress on hair strands and follicles. If you are comfortable sleeping with a scarf on, do it. This will prevent tangling and keep your hair organized and manageable.

Avoid Vigorous Rubbing With Towel

Wet hair is fragile and when you rub it with a towel using a forceful action, it can damage hair. Get rid of this practice which can cause dryness, knots, and damage to the cuticle of the hair. Use a smooth cloth and gently wrap around your wet hair so that it can absorb excess water naturally and gently.

Avoid Brushing/Combing Wet Hair

We all know that wet hair is most susceptible to damage, but most of us make the mistake of brushing and combing wet hair. While it may create a momentary sleek look, it can do serious damage under the scalp. Pulling at wet hair using a comb can damage hair follicles. As far as possible avoid this. If you can’t, at least use a wide-toothed comb.

Are You Using The Right Pillowcase?

Does this sound crazy and like stretching hair care too far? No.  There is a solid connection between the pillowcase and hair care. A pillowcase made of rough cloth can make hair look dry and jaded, as it may absorb the natural oils present in hair. Pillowcase made of poor quality clothing can also cause infections in the scalp. Go for a silky smooth pillowcase. It will not only keep your hair healthy but also give you a good night’s sleep. That in turn will help your hair grow better.
