Yes, as Indians we might have very varied genetics but keep in mind that today's blog is all about hair from a health perspective. How to take care, how to wash it the correct way, how to oil it the correct way even the post-wash treatment we are gonna cover it all.
Step 1 is India's biggest gift to the world of men's grooming oiling your hair... gotta oil your hair at least 2-3 times every week because oiling your hair nourishes it. So, quick pro tip- heat up your oil before applying it on your scalp that hot oil opens up the pores of the skin of your scalp and then the oil can seep into the scalp.
This oil is helping nourish your scalp as well as your hair what does the nourishment mean it prevents bacterial as well as fungal infections in the long term and strengthens your hair, it helps your hair grow better but most importantly it keeps your hair thick for as long as possible.
If you are serious about your hair's health you got to start oiling your hair at least two to three times a week, now that number might vary according to your genetics if you are someone who has oily skin or oily hair then you might only need to oil it once or twice a week.
Also, keep in mind that you shouldn't over oil it if you oil it too much that also makes you prone to dandruff because it clogs all the pores in your hair and that can possibly lead to infections.
So, the rule of oiling is that heat it up a little bit let it just cool down & make sure its warm and then start applying it on your hair also in this case you can mix amla oil with coconut oil so that you get a little bit of mix nourishment. The other thing is you wanna oil it & let it stay at least for 8 hours it lets your hair & your scalp absorb it.
Step 2 is hair wash, because you are an Indian bro and because we have this kind of hot climate & because of our genetics with oily scalps lot of men suffer from dandruff that's why the number one priority piece you need while washing your hair in an anti-dandruff shampoo.
You can use head & shoulder or clinic all clear they are all very strong shampoos and that's why you can only use them once in a week. A lot of Indian bros make this mistake and overdo it with anti-dandruff shampoo as if it is the only shampoo they can use. So, if you want to care about the quality of your hair turn towards what the ladies use.
Use milder shampoos like L'Oreal smooth intense- smoothening shampoo. Also when you are buying these ladies style shampoo, they come with certain variables like for silky hair, unmanageable hair, etc; so when you find these that's what you've gotta go looking for. You gotta figure out what is the issues you are facing with your hair and then buy that shampoo accordingly.
Shampoos are water-based substances so you wash your hair as well as your scalp with it but next very importantly we're talking about an oil-based product a conditioner, this is also a very important part of the hair care routine.
Step 3 is conditioning your hair, this is oil-based so you can't too much of it we won't advise you to use it more than twice a week especially if you have oily genetics.
But if you have a dry hair conditioner is the best option. Try going for a conditioner that pairs up well with your shampoo i.e. it should be of the same brand.
Step 4 is combing your hair, post-shower therapy is actually quite simple just two main ingredients, hair serum, and a comb and obviously you should also towel dry your hair just dab it dry don't ruffle it.
If you got an unmanageable hair comb is not much use when it comes to shaping up your hair, but what it does do is it also helps to massage your hair a bit. If you just stroke your hair along its natural direction of growth, but also make sure that the comb makes contact with your scalp for the blood circulation.
Step 5 is serum, if you are choosing to use serum you are taking your post-shower treatment one notch higher, now serum doesn't really have too many health benefits like all the other factors but it's more about the look of your hair, it makes your hair look thicker, glossy or shinier and it also to some extent protects your hair from excess humidity.
All you have to do is to take a coin-sized portion rub it in your hands and apply it on to the body of your hair not the scalp but the hair while it's still slightly wet from the shower. Once it's applied you can actually go and start combing your hair make sure the comb touches the scalp, you can also just shape it up with your hand, just playing around with your hair using your hand will do the trick for you.
