How To Care For Your Hair At Home
1. Be Nice To Your Hair
You didn’t expect that to be the first point? Well I knew. We worry so much about our hair but at the end of the day we treat it like what it is. Dead cells. Without realizing we often manhandle our mane.
2. Comb Smart
We comb too much and too hard, We comb when our hair is wet. We even tie up wet hair. Not only these, we let our delicate tresses rub against the pillow each night leading to a lot of unnecessary hair loss. All these are perfectly avoidable situations.
Even when you run your fingers through your hair. Be slow and careful. One single careless tug could cost you hair. After a shower let your hair air dry and then comb it. Comb the roots first as that will be the most tangled part of your hair. Once you sort out the tangles comb from the root to the ends carefully.
Do not let the bristles brush too hard on your scalp. This could cause tear and damage. Do not comb your hair again and again through out the day. Comb once after shower / in the morning and once before sleeping. Combing your hair before sleeping will brush out dirt and pollution, clearing out the pores of your scalp so that your hair can breathe when you sleep at night.
3. Tie Smart
Never use metal or plastic bands on your hair. I hate clutchers. I have seen many people lose hair which gets entangled in these hell traps. Use a plain simple cotton band. Another thing you could try is giving your mane some variety. Combing in the same direction all your life long can give your a receding hair line quite early. So comb back to front, side to side along with front to back.
4. Yogurt, Honey And Oil
This recipe spells party for your mane. Mix the three and apply on your scalp and hair thoroughly. Try to use cold yogurt. As you apply the mixture, you will realize that your head is letting out a lot of heat which was trapped. This heat is not good for you.
This mixture will start by cooling your head. Once you are done applying the mixture you should cover up your head with a shower cap. Because of the heat and also because of the nature of yogurt, it will start dripping. If you do not want to get the sticky mixture all over the place, a shower cap is a good idea.
Let the mixture stay on your hair for an hour and go about your daily business. It really doesn’t bother you much. After an hour rinse thoroughly with water. Shampoo and condition. Yogurt adds a lot of shine and moisture as well as deeply oils your head.
Honey is known for it’s moisture attracting quality. This treatment will make your hair shiny, soft and full of healthy oils and moisture.

Too much usage might make your hair very oily.

You hair might be too oily because you are using too much shampoo. Read up on that. As you reduce your shampoo usage, your hair will seem too oily initially. But once it get’s used to less shampoo schedule, the oil secretion will stabilize gradually.
