Get your hair trimmed

Both guys and girls should get their hair trimmed regularly. It is advisable to get a trim every 5 to 6 weeks; this will strip away the dead hair and reveal the fresh new layer of hair. Also getting rid of dead hair is extremely essential.

Excessive Brushing

Some teenagers are obsessed with brushing their hair multiple times a day. Even though it seems to make your hair shinier, repeated brushing can cause your hair to break and your ends to split. It is important that you use a wooden comb, to keep your hair from breaking.

Avoid Hot water baths

Hot water can dry out your hair faster and leave your scalp feeling irritated and tight. It can also lead to hairfall and pre-mature greying of hair. Cooler or lukewarm showers even just a few times a week can keep scalp skin hydrated and help hair stay strong and shiny.

Hair Colour Treatments

There are two types of colour: permanent (which means the colour stays in your hair until it grows out) and semi-permanent (the colour washes out after a while). The permanent treatments can cause hairloss, burning, redness, and irritation. A few types of treatments also induce allergic reactions in certain people. You should talk to your stylist if you are worried that you may be sensitive to the products and can opt for a patch test before the whole treatment.

It is always advisable to go back to the traditional and ancient ways for haircare treatment of teenagers. While using international brands has become a trend, sticking to the age-old ways of oiling of hair, using homemade remedies like curd to get rid of dandruff, lemon can be equally helpful to keep the locks healthy. In fact, these homemade techniques prevent any further damage. It is also crucial to maintain a diet rich in Vitamin C. Food intake rich in Vitamin C such as citrus fruits help to keep the hair healthy and nutritious.
