When it comes to maintain your hair healthy there are number of advises you get from everywhere. Your mother will tell you to treat your hair with natural oils while your hair dresser will suggest you to go for hair spa, protein treatments or strengthening oils available in markets (Al-fatah,emporium and mall of Lahore)but the foremost important thing that affects your hair directly is your diet no matter how much treatments you get but it is compulsory to have iron and protein rich diet because hair health is dependent mostly on what we eat.
Try and include iron-rich foods like leafy vegetables, fish, pumpkin seeds, beans, chickpea, soybeans and cereals in your diet. Doctors suggest that you consume around 12 mg of iron daily. You need protein like cheese, milk, soy, lentils, peas, quinoa and yogurt.
Now here are some daily routine tips that can surely add up to your hair health and maintenance.

2.After taking bath don’t start using brush on your wet hair as it may cause breakage of hair and also cause hair-fall. Try using wide toothed brushes after your hair gets dry so that will easily detangle your hair.
- Tired of brown and rough hair at the end .Cut them out every 6 to 8 weeks about 1/4th inch of hair to get full growth of your hair with healthy looking strands.
5.Rinse your hair with cold water after conditioning to get shine in your hair ends.
6.We tend to read out ingredients in our food products but we don’t focus on the labels that are at the back side of shampoos. Most of the shampoos are sulphate incorporated .what are sulphates? They are the reason lather is created and it cleans our scalp but it also causes itchiness in our eyes when it comes down so try using sulphate free shampoo that will keep the moisture in your hair.
7.If you have dry hair don’t go for hair dye but it tempts you to go for it then follow this simple remedy to avoid any further damage. Use lemon and honey with some water and spray on your hair when you go out it will protect you from sun damage and keep it shiny.
