I hope you would get answers of all the above questions after reading this article on hair care tips. Having healthy, beautiful, shining, dandruff free and lustrous hair is dream of almost every woman. But not all women are blessed with beautiful and healthy hair. Some women manage to get such beautiful hairs but some are not able to have such type of lovely hairs. There are certain factors which play important role in having healthy hair which I am going to discuss below one by one, and I hope you would like them.

How to Reduce Hair Fall, Hair Loss, Hair Damage and Increase Hair Growth?

Hair loss occurs due to several reasons. The main cause is aging. As one gets older, it is the structure of the hair which changes. It becomes weaker, thinner, and grey and eventually dies. Besides aging, other reasons could include: frequent colouring, chemical in commercial products, deficiencies in minerals and vitamins etc.

I would first like to tell you what can harm your hair before I share any hair tips for long & Healthy hair. Here are some of the harmful factors which you must be aware of:

Harmful Effects of Chemical Contained Products on Hair

Effects of Hair Colors on Your Hairs:

  • Permanent hair colouring stays in the hair until it grows out while semi-permanent coloring washes out over a period of time.
  • Permanent treatments can cause hair loss, irritation, redness and burning.
  • Semi-permanent hair coloring treatments like henna are easy to use and are safer than the permanent ones.
  • Before applying any form of colouring to your hair, be sure to test a small amount on your wrist first to see whether or not the chemical could irritate your skin.
  • And use good brand hair colors for your hair.

Effects of Hair Bleach on Your Hairs:

  • Hair bleach is used to lighten the color of your hair. Hair bleach is comprised of mixture of hydrogen peroxide, ammonia and a toner.
  • Although bleaching your hair may give beautiful shades of colors to your hair but if you see it is harmful in the long term.
  • If bleach comes in contact with the scalp then it can damage the hair shaft and take away most of the hair moisture thus making hair very delicate and vulnerable to break.
  • If you still wish to bleach your hair then consult a good dermatologist and take precautions as prescribed.
  • Using hair straightener, hair drier, flat irons can damage and break such bleached hairs.
  • A good hair conditioner is very useful if you bleach your hair, it can reduce the harmful effects of the bleach.

Effects of Relaxers(Perm) on Your Hairs:

  • Relaxers or perms are used to give a particular hair styles and curles to make a woman look beautiful.
  • But most of the women do not know the adverse effects of the hair perming.
  • In perming heat and chemicals are applied to hairs when they are roled so that they remain in that very position and style even after the roles are removed from the hair.
  • Ammonium thioglycolate is the chemical which is used as hair relaxers for perming.
  • Such chemicals and heat applied to hair can change texture of your hair, make them hair weak, brittle, fragile, frizzy, and prone to break easily. For more details on effects of relaxers and perming on hairs click here.

Effects of Chlorinated Water on Hairs:

  • Chlorinated water is nothing but the water treated with chlorine.
  • Chlorine is added to water to kill bacteria and virus to make water drinkable.
  • In most of the cities water is treated with chlorine before supplying to every home.
  • But this very chlorine is also harmful for your hair if you use this water to wash your hair.

Other Factors Harmful for Hairs

Effects of Hair Dryer on Your Hairs:

  • Using hair dryer to dry your hair can also damage your lovely hairs.
  • Hair dryer evaporates all water and moisture from your hair leaving them dry which is harmful for your hair as this way they become weak, fragile and prone to breakages.
  • Thus it is advised not to use blow drier, instead let your hair dry naturally.

Effects of Dandruff on Your Hairs:

  • Dandruff is nothing but dead cells shedding off the head scalp.
  • Almost every person suffers from dandruff at some point of time.
  • Dandruff causes irritation and itching which makes us scratch our head again and again which in turn weaken our hairs near the root, thus making hair weak and fragile to break easily.
  • If little care is undertaken then one can get rid of dandruff easily and permanently.

Effects of Stress on Your Hairs:

  • Yes stress can be harmful for your hair and can make your hair grey fast, and can also lead to hair fall.
  • But for this the stress level should be very high which can cause lose of sleep and appetite. Not day to day low level & short term stress caused by small issues or work load can cause you this much of harm to your hair.
  • So try to be happy and live life with happiness as stress cannot make any situation better.
  • Adopt a positive thinking attitude and try to avoid stress always. There are ups and down in everybody’s life so do not lose hope if something wrong happens with you but keep moving and struggling having a hope that good time will come soon. Life is short and beautiful never waste it by worrying and taking stress. For more information effects of stress on hairs click here.

  • Your hair also needs a good diet and necessary nutrition like proteins, vitamins, minerals, etc.
  • Your hairs are made of protein and they need it for good health and proper growth. Thus protein is very important for your hair health so do not forget it to include in your diet.

Effects of Pollution on Your Hairs:

  • As there are lots harmful chemicals and allergens in the polluted air and dust which makes our hair dull, weak and prone to damage easily.
  • Even polluted water is also harmful for your hair. That is why washing your hair from filtered and clean water is beneficial.

  • Covering your hair while going outside is also very useful for your hair.

Effects of Weather on Hairs:

  • Exposing your hairs to sun, wind, pollution and rain can also damage your hair.
  • Exposing your hair in sun means you are exposing your hair to intense heat and ultra violet rays which both are very harmful for your hair as they affect the melanin in our hair. Long exposure in sun not only takes moisture out of your hair but also makes your hair dull, lifeless, and weak. Using an umbrella not only protect your hair but also your skin from the sun damage.
  • Cold weather is not as much harmful as summer, but still you should avoid too cold weather as it may make your hairs moisture less, dry, frizzy and unruly.
  • Exposing your hair to windy weather can make your hair create tangles and snags which can lead to hair breakages while combing them.
  • If you can then try to keep your hair covered by a cloth to avoid all harmful effects of all types of weather conditions.
