6. Visit your doctor Visiting your doctor regularly is not just good life advice, but will also help your hair. Make sure you have a yearly medical check-up to monitor your iron and thyroid hormones levels.
7. Massage your scalp Massaging your scalp while you wash your hair can have long-lasting benefits for healthy hair. By manually providing an increased blood supply to your scalp, you will help your hair to absorb the nutrients it needs properly.
8. Diet with caution Following fad diets is widely recognised to be bad for your health, but it can also be bad for your hair. In particular, avoid liquid diets, which are likely to lack basic elements like proteins and vitamins that are essential for healthy hair.
9. Brush your hair While the 100 strokes a night that used to be advocated by women’s magazines is not the answer to protecting your hair, regular brushing will help keep your hair healthy. The secret is to find the right brush, and to do it every day in small doses.
10. Limit alcohol Avoiding excessive alcohol use is good for your heart and health, and as luck would have it, is also a factor in preventing hair loss. As with all health advice, the message is: all things in moderation.
