Good habits for thicker hair
Hair remedies, food and hair treatments are not the only ones that can help you have a beautiful hair. You must bring your contribution as well. In this sense there are some habits that you must learn to follow.
Never wash your hair daily. The more you wash it, the more damaged and oily it becomes. Twice a week is enough to keep it clean.
Use less styling products. Too much heating will only make your hair drier and will stimulate the hair loss.
Use herbal shampoos. Chemical based shampoos clean your hair, but they also make it thinner in time, so why not replace it with natural ingredients?
Have a proper hygiene. As you have a proper oral hygiene, it also important that you know how to properly wash and take care of your hair.
Protect your hair. The sun is a damaging factor, therefore covering your hair every time you out will protect it from the free radicals and pollution.
