Tips for healthy hair

Healthy Hair
RENOWNED dermatologist and co-creator of Sunsilk Lively Clean & Fresh, Dr Francesca Fusco believes that early intervention will help patients avoid invasive treatments.

“Use shampoo properly. Lather and massage your scalp with your fingertips and not your fingernails. Apply conditioner to hair shafts, and not the scalp. Rinse with cold water,” said Fusco.

Other quick tips include:

● Wear a headscarf made from natural and breathable fabrics such as cotton.

● Keep hydrated by drinking at least two litres of water daily.

● Stress and anxiety are common causes of an unhealthy scalp. Examine your life and identify areas that cause anxiety, and work on improving them.

● Increase your intake of essential fatty acids which can be found in foods such as oily fish, avocados and nuts to improve the general condition and overall appearance of scalp and skin. Poor nutrition, yo-yo dieting and low protein intake can result in hair loss.

● Hair loss can occur due to extremes of heat and blow dryers, flat irons or curling irons. Avoid hairstyles that pull too tightly at the hairline as they can cause traction alopecia.

● If there is excessive hair loss – i.e. more than 100 strands of hair a day for several weeks – and there had been no sudden changes in your life or medication routine, it could indicate an underlying medical condition such as thyroid deficiency, anaemia or low iron levels. Consult a doctor.

● For those with scaly scalps, a monthly warm oil treatment is helpful.
