Want to have a good hair day, everyday? Hair boss Renya Xydis says it's easy to support strong hair and scalp health to give ourselves a confidence boost. Here are her top tips for a healthy head of hair.

1. Shampoo Less Often

While shampooing is necessary to keep our hair clean, excessive use can strip away the natural oils that keep our locks healthy and lustrous. Consider shampooing every other day to  give your hair some breathing room and allow those natural oils to work their magic. Opt for sulphate-free shampoos to avoid drying out your precious strands. 

2. Embrace the T-Shirt, Ditch the Towel.

Towel-drying your hair may feel satisfying, but it can actually cause damage to the delicate cuticles. Swap your traditional towel for an old t-shirt—the soft, absorbent fabric will gently dry  your hair while minimising breakage and frizz caused by friction. 

3. Pamper Yourself with a Silk Pillowcase

For those nights when you wash your hair before bed, consider upgrading your pillowcase to  silk or satin. These smooth materials are gentle on your hair, reducing friction and preventing  tangles as you toss and turn in your sleep. 

4. Avoid Tight Hairstyles

Tight ponytails, buns, braids, and other hairstyles that pull on the hair can cause traction  alopecia, a type of hair loss resulting from prolonged tension on the hair follicles. Opt for looser hairstyles and alternate between different styles to minimise stress on the hair. 

5. Maintain a Nutritious Diet

Proper nutrition is essential for healthy hair growth. Include a variety of nutrient-rich foods in  your diet, such as fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, whole grains, and healthy fats. Pay  particular attention to foods that contain vitamins A, C, E, and B-complex vitamins, as well as  minerals like iron, zinc, and biotin. 

6. Nourish From Within

Consider incorporating daily vitamin supplements such as Nature’s Way Beauty Biotin Gummies into your routine. These great-tasting supplements not only support hair health but also support growth and shine when dietary intake is inadequate.  

7. Keep the Heat at Bay

Excessive heat from tools such as hairdryers, straighteners, and curling irons weaken the keratin protein, and lead to dryness and breakage. Whenever possible, allow your hair to air dry naturally or use heat styling tools on the lowest heat setting. When using heat styling tools, always apply a heat protective serum to minimise damage. 

8. Master the Art of Brushing


Brushing your hair properly is crucial for preventing damage and tangles. Begin brushing from the tips and work your way up to avoid tightening existing knots. Use a brush with flexible  bristles to gently detangle your hair and remember to avoid brushing when your hair is wet, as  it's more prone to breakage. 

9. Shield Your Hair Before Swimming:


Chlorine in pools can be highly damaging to your hair. Prioritise protection by applying a leave in conditioner before swimming. Afterward, make sure to thoroughly cleanse your hair with a  swimmer's shampoo and conditioner to remove chlorine and restore lost moisture. 

10. Limit Chemical Treatments

Chemical treatments like perming, relaxing, and colouring can weaken the hair shaft and lead to breakage. If possible, reduce the frequency of these treatments or opt for more natural and  gentle alternatives. 

11. Protect Your Scalp

A healthy scalp is crucial for healthy hair growth. Keep your scalp clean and free from excess  oil and build-up by washing it regularly. Massaging your scalp can also help stimulate blood flow to the hair follicles. 

12. Consult a Healthcare Professional:  

If you notice any hair health challenges or changes in your hair, it's important to consult a  healthcare professional, hairdresser or a dermatologist. They can help identify the underlying  cause of your hair concern and provide appropriate treatment options.
