Protein and moisture: Hair needs protein and moisture to stay healthy and strong. Every scalp, whether oily, dry, or dehydrated, can benefit from topical oil application for hair regrowth. Oil can act as a prebiotic for the scalp, providing nourishment and promoting healthy hair growth. Protein and moisture actually need each other to function properly. In order for water molecules to bind with your strands and keep the water locked within, you need a robust protein structure.(Bennie Lukas Bester on pexels ) expand-icon View Photos in a new improved layout

Keep warm water away: Never wash scalp and hair with warm or lukewarm water. When you use hot water, your hair is stressed, and you end up with frizzy, brittle, and dry hair. The heat weakens your hair, which is another factor that contributes to hair loss. Normal tap water has an appropriate temperature to keep the scalp and hair healthy.(Armin Rimoldi on pexels ) expand-icon View Photos in a new improved layout

Go-to tips for healthy hair: To maintain healthy hair, it is recommended to comb it twice daily and avoid shampooing every day.
