2016. It’s a new beginning! Read on for some of the resolutions for your hair routine that you’ll want to
Cleaning your brushes
How often does do you wash your hair brush? Make sure to wash them once a week as oil, dirt and
bacteria can build up very quickly, leaving your hair feeling greasy. Regularly clean your brush – your
hair will thank you.
Combing your hair
Brushing or combing your hair help to spread the natural oils from the roots to the ends. Brushing
your hair right after bath can damage it as hair is at its weakest when it is wet. Use a hair brush that has
soft bristles made of natural fibers.
Blotting your hair with a towel
Don’t rub your hair after washing it, try blotting your hair with a towel. This is because when you
dry your hair with a towel, it’ll dry faster but the amount of hair that breaks and falls away also doubles
up. So, just blot with towel and let it air dry.
Wash your hair only as needed
This is to preserve your hair’s natural oils. Washing your hair twice a week is adequate.
Overusing heat tools is the cause leading to dryness and breakage. Frequent use of hair dryer can dry
out hair, causing breakage and split ends. So, let your hair dry naturally instead. If you do use a hair
dryer, don’t hold it too close to your hair. Use a cooler setting on your hair dryer, to minimize damage.
After exercise or work out at gym
After you exercise or work out at gym, remember to wash your hair as sweat is full of salt that
could dry your hair out and cause breakages.
Eat your way to a healthier hair

” Carbohydrates are important nutrients for your hair,” says Marilyn Sherlock, chairman of the Institute
of Trichologists. “People who run a lot and deplete their carbohydrate stores can experience hair loss.”
Protect your hair
Protect your hair from sun, wind and rain as these can lead to dirt build up, dry hair and scalp. Use
an umbrella or wear a hat or a cap. This is to protect your hair from harmful UV rays and the drying
effects of the sun.
Avoid tight hair ties
Tight hair ties tend to pull your hair back tightly which can cause your hair to break or snap off if its
dry. Avoid hair ties with metal bands as these can cause damage to your hair.
Use satin pillow covers
Sleeping on satin pillow covers is known to reduce breakage caused by friction.
Stress can cause a chemical reaction in your body that can negatively impacts your health not to
mention your hair. Your hair can become thinner or fall out due to stress. Always look for ways to
minimize your stress level.
Avoid smoking, caffeine and fizzy drinks
Eliminate smoking, caffeine and fizzy drinks from your life will help to make your hair grow
stronger and longer.
Getting a good night sleep
Getting a good night sleep or rather – a beauty sleep. After a long day, it’s the time when your body
is most active, repairing any damage and allowing itself to recuperate. You should have at least 8 hours
of sleep everyday which will give your hair a chance to repair any damage and to allow your skin to
rest and stay radiant.
These are simple ways to welcome the new year with healthier-looking hair.
This coming new year – for some people are to cure their hair loss problem or to have thicker hair or
even longer hair. There is always a way to overcome things like this.
There’s a light at the end of the tunnel!
For where there’s life, there’s hope!
Have a promising and fulfilling New Year!
Wishing all of you the best in whatever you do,
May all your dreams come true!
