How to keep hair healthy? 3 step simple solution.

How To Keep Hair Healthy

Hair appearance is adjustable to suit our expression. Haircare is not time-consuming; it does not have to be. So how to keep hair healthy? We discussed hair in great detail in our post “Hair: Interesting Medley.” This post summarizes top tips and few insights.

How To Keep Hair Healthy

An average person sheds about 100 hair every day. Several factors such as lack of sleep, proper diet, infection, illness, and stress can cause more hair to fall out. Can hair loss be restored? What is a good hair care routine? How to establish the right and sustainable hair care routine? These questions apply equally to men and women and we discuss a simple solution in three steps. Let’s explore!

A simple haircare routine:

1) Cleansing- A gentle cleanser would remove dirt, grime, pollutants, and dead skin without changing scalp pH or stripping the natural oils. We suggest a pH-balanced, natural hair bath and rub the scalp gently to remove the dirt and depositions.

2) Moisturizing/conditioning-One expects hair tangling after a hair wash as some loss of hair’s natural oil. A hair conditioner would restore the vital oils, allow detangling of hair and promote shine. A natural, pH-balanced hair conditioner would restore the scalp and hair’s natural oils without altering the chemical balance.

3) Oil/Serum application- a combination of hair oils and serum restores the scalp’s natural balance. Hair oil and serum kept overnight followed by hair cleansing and conditioning work the best. One may warm up the oil with gentle rubbing on the palm of the hand and rub gently onto the scalp. Hair Nourisher is a gentle fusion of organic hair and scalp friendly oils.

Natural oils can help strengthen hair follicles and help fight against common causes of hair loss. The oils nourish the scalp and hair follicle and support the hair strand fight against environmental factors. Several oils are known for centuries to protect hair and promote hair growth.


Bhringraj (common name-false daisy, INCI name-Eclipta prostata) is a member of the sunflower family. Bhringraj is known for hair-friendly properties for centuries.

1) Bhringraj is rich in vitamin E, and higher specific gravity allowing for better contact with the scalp.
2) Reduces scalp itching by reducing dandruff and dry scalp.
3) Improves blood flow to the scalp and thus reduces hair loss and promotes hair growth. One research in 2008 reported significant hair growth and reduced time to hair growth by the direct application of Bhringraj. The results were superior to Minoxidil’s direct application, a medicine commonly used to treat hair loss.
4) Reduces split ends of hair and increases shine.
5) Washes away easily for quick hair cleansing.

In addition to the above scalp and hair care routine, the role of good sleep, diet, and stress reduction are vital. Changing one’s lifestyle to suit organic living promotes hair health. Diet has an important role in maintaining the good health of our hair and skin. You can read more about the diet in our recent post- Does diet affect my skin?

Quick Recap:

  • The pH of the scalp ranges from 3.5 to 5.0.
  • Effective hair care principles- Cleansing, Conditioning, and Moisturizing.
  • Use natural hair care products to minimize damage and delay greying of hair.
  • Eat healthily, sleep well, and work on reducing stress.

We love discussing hair. Why? It is one of very few parts of our body that can be changed to suit our expression! Hair is the only part that is shaped in different manners without going through discomfort! Hair can be shaped, colored, held together in various shapes, and so much more! Taking good care of our hair is equally vital, and we aim to discuss exciting facts of hair and improving hair health.

Hair Composition.

Our hair is a complex mixture of specialized proteins. It consists of about 50% carbon, 21% Oxygen, 17% Nitrogen, 6% Hydrogen, and 5% Sulphur.1,2 The composition of hair in men and women is similar.

These substances together make hair strand stronger than an electric wire (copper) of a similar size.

Hair grows pretty fast, only second to the bone marrow (a substance that helps produce blood cells). Hair growth ranges from 0.3mm to 0.5mm every day! Hair growth is not affected by cutting hair. A new hair strand begins to develop immediately after the older hair strand falls out.

Hair Health Facts.

About 150,000 hair strands on the scalp.2 An average person sheds about 100 hair strands every day. Excessive hair loss can occur due to stress, chemical imbalance, lack of proper diet, lack of adequate sleep, hormonal imbalance, infection, and illness. Several medicines are known to cause hair loss. Men develop excessive hair loss due to increased hormonal activity.

The hair follicle can be hydrated and nourished directly during washing and applying nourishing substances. Natural products such as Chic Hair Bath can provide necessary deep hydration and nourishment to growing hair at the scalp level while providing gentle cleansing. Plush Hair Conditioner made with plant-based conditioners can provide excellent detangling, shine and hair fiber longevity. In between hair washes, Hair Nourisher can provide deep scalp nourishment. It can be used as a gel overnight and washed out in the morning.

Black is the most common hair color. Blonde hair present in about 2 percent of population. Natural Red color is seen in only one percent the population!2 About 75% of women colored their hair in 2015, as opposed to only 7% in 1950.2 Average hair color is repeated in 4-8 weeks. However, pH-balanced natural hair care products such as Chic Hair Bath, Plush Hair Conditioner, and Hair Nourisher are safe for colored or chemically-treated hair. These can help retain hair color longer than conventional shampoos, conditioners, and hair masks. These products help hair cuticle stay closed during the washing process to prevent color escape.
