Tricks for Healthy Hair

Genetics play a role but tricks for healthy hair include your diet, the weather and your overall approach to hair care. Here are some tricks for healthy hair.

The Right Shampoo

Buy the right shampoo for your hair type and texture. If you have fine hair buy shampoo for fine hair. Dry hair, moisturizing shampoo, etc.

Avoid shampoos with harsh ingredients/chemicals such as parabens and sulfates. Do buy shampoos that are organic and locally sourced. They are your tricks for healthy hair.

Avoid shampooing too frequently. Every other day is more than enough. Less is better if you don’t get too oily. Do not use too much shampoo. Less is more. Shampoo at the roots and let shampoo slide through ends. Rinse thoroughly.


The right conditioner is an important step in determining the health of your hair. It’s important to leave the conditioner off the scalp when applying your conditioner.

Not everyone needs conditioner after every shampoo. It’s best to experiment to see what works best for you.

Others need patented conditioners such as K18 or Olaplex to mend their balayage or bleached hair.

Hair Maintenance

Treat your hair gently when it is wet. Your hair is 30% more likely to break when wet. Use a large tooth comb or a wet brush to comb it out.

Allow your hair to air dry whenever possible. If you must blow dry, air dry as much as possible first. Start blow drying on low heat and gradually get warmer.

Get haircuts often — every 8-12 weeks to keep your ends looking amazing.

Omega 3

Increase your intake of omega-3 fatty acids . Omega stimulates the hair follicles and sebaceous glands. Omega 3 is found in cold water fish like salmon and herring. It can also be found in leafy greens, dairy and flax seeds.


A good diet is important for healthy hair. Hair is made of primarily of protein,  Therefore a great trick to healthy hair is a diet rich in protein. Experts recommend at least 45 grams a day of protein. Good sources include: eggs, beans, lean meat, poultry, and fish.
