1.Eat a diet that will help to keep your hair healthy. Hair is mostly protein, so you'll want to eat plenty of meats, soy products and other foods that are rich in protein. Vitamins B6 and B12 can also help to prevent hair lost. See the Resources section below to find a list of foods that offer these two vitamins.
2.Massage your scalp on a daily basis. This will improve the blood flow and circulation in your scalp, which will help to keep your hair healthy. The easiest way to massage your scalp is to do so when you're washing your hair. You can also do this while you're sitting down and watching TV.
3.Buy the right shampoo and conditioner for your hair. A man with a dry scalp should not use the same shampoo as somebody who has oily hair. Read the label of products carefully before you make your purchase. You may also want to consult a stylist and ask what products would be best for your hair.
4.Wash your hair every other day. Washing your hair every day will remove natural oils from the hair and scalp, which can cause your hair to become dry and brittle. On days that you don't wash your hair, use a gel or spray to style your hair and to make it smell nice.
5.Exfoliate your scalp once a week. Doing so will help to get rid of any dead skin cells that are on your scalp. Exfoliating can also remove dirt from the scalp and hair. Most exfoliating face washes are OK to use on the scalp.
6.Use lukewarm water to rinse your hair. Water that is too hot will cause your scalp to dry out, which will damage your hair.
7.Go to a stylist once a month to trim your hair and remove any damaged pieces of hair. The stylist can also thoroughly inspect your hair and scalp and look for any problems. Taking care of problems early is a great way to keep your hair healthy.
