Below are some tips on maintaining a healthy scalp,
1. Nourish that first inch of hair that emerges from the scalp as this is the secret to addressing fair fall.

2. Consume a proper high protein diet, which include lean meat, fish and a wide range of beans as they all are ideal sources of protein and amino acids that are important for scalp and hair health.

3. Eat food that contains oil such as flaxseed, borage, Omega 3 and fish oil. Take zinc supplements.

4. Take vitamins or dietary supplements that contain biotin or minoxidil but this requires prior consultation with dermatologist.

5. Apply warm oil once a month on the scabs on your scalp.

6. Use hot and cold water alternately when shampooing your scalp. This will improve circulation and help to avoid the build-up of dead skin cells.

7. Try to massage rather than scratch your scalp when applying shampoo.

8. Drink at least two litres of water every day. Keeping yourself hydrated is essential in having your hair and skin look healthy and well conditioned.

9. Trim your hair regularly to improve its condition.

10. Since stress and anxiety are some of the most common causes for hair fall and unhealthy scalp, take a look at your life and try to identify those areas that cause you great anxiety and work on improving them.

11. Increase your intake of essential fatty acids, which can be found in food such as oily fish, avocados and nuts to improve the condition and appearance of your scalp and skin too.

12. Avoid sleeping in an overly warm or dry bedroom as it will drain the moisture from your scalp, hair and skin as well.
