Maintaining Your Hair Health

Maintaining healthy hair is more than just good grooming; it's about understanding your hair's needs and providing the right care to keep it looking its best. In this article, we'll discuss how often you should be washing your hair, essential products you’ll need to maintain a healthy scalp, and tips for thinning hair.


How Often Should You Wash Your Hair?

The frequency of washing your hair depends largely on your hair type, lifestyle, and personal preference. Here are some general guidelines to help you determine the best routine:

  1. Oily Hair: If your hair gets greasy quickly, you may need to wash it every day or every other day. This helps remove excess oil and keep your scalp clean.
  2. Dry Hair: For those with dry or curly hair, washing two to three times a week is usually sufficient. Over-washing can strip your hair of natural oils, leading to dryness and breakage.
  3. Normal Hair: If you have normal hair that is neither too oily nor too dry, washing every two to three days should be enough to keep it healthy and clean.
  4. Active Lifestyle: If you exercise frequently or sweat a lot, you might need to wash your hair more often to remove sweat and dirt.

Getting on the right hair washing schedule can be difficult, so you’ll want to be adaptable and flexible to changes in your daily routine (and any changes in the weather!). If you think you need to be washing your hair more frequently than you currently are, make sure you are using a gentle, sulfate-free shampoo like the Suavecito Daily Shampoo. Sulfates can be harmful on your hair because they tend to strip away natural oils, leading to dryness and scalp irritation. In the Suavecito Daily Shampoo, we’ve added fortifying natural oils from sage and chamomile that help soothe your scalp. This is a great option, especially if you are washing your hair everyday or every other day.

Don’t Forget to Condition

Using conditioner is another essential step in a proper hair routine. Using conditioner is about more than just making your hair soft - conditioner helps protect the ends of your hair from breakage and will help keep any tangling or frizz under control. The Suavecito Nourishing Conditioner is a great complement to the Daily Shampoo and is also sulfate-free! For best results, apply conditioner to the mid-lengths and ends of your hair, avoiding the scalp, and leave it in for a few minutes before rinsing thoroughly. Regular use of conditioner can lead to stronger, shinier, and more resilient hair.

Focus on a Healthy Scalp

Having a healthy scalp is the foundation for achieving healthy hair. A healthy scalp provides the optimal environment for hair follicles to function properly, promoting strong and vibrant hair growth. When the scalp is well-nourished and free from conditions like dandruff or excess oil, you’ll see your hair texture at its best.

Consider incorporating products specifically designed to keep your scalp healthy, like the Suavecito Hair Tonic. In this product we have included Rosemary Leaf and Nettle Leaf extracts, which should help in reducing dandruff and protect against heat styling. In general, you should try to limit your use of heat styling tools like straighteners or curling irons to a few times a week. With blow-dryers, stick to the lowest effective heat setting to style your hair. Whenever you do apply heat to your hair, make sure to apply a heat protectant like the Suavecito Hair Tonic first. Avoiding heat damage will further ensure your hair health and help prevent hair loss.

Take Extra Care of Thinning Hair

Thinning hair is a common concern for many men and can be caused by a wide range of factors. Depending on your age and genetics, a certain level of hair loss can’t be avoided, but there are a few key steps you can implement into your routine to take care of thinning hair and create a fuller appearance.

Firstly, you want to be gentle when washing and styling your hair. Avoid harsh brushing or combing, and use a wide-tooth comb to detangle. When it comes to products, it’s best to go with products that have ingredients scientifically proven to improve hair growth. As such, we recommend consulting a physician before starting use of any new medicated product.

At Suavecito we have a whole line of hair loss treatment products, but the one we want to focus on specifically in this article is our Matte Hair Cream with DHT Blocker. DHT is a hormone produced by testosterone that can result in male pattern baldness. This hormone causes hair follicles to shrink, weaken, and eventually stop growing hair at all. This Matte Hair Cream blocks that hormone with Serenoa Serrulata fruit extract, which has the potential to lower the conversion of testosterone to DHT and reduce DHT levels in the scalp.

We’ve added this ingredient to an everyday styling product so you don’t need to overthink how to take care of your thinning hair. With regular use, you should see results in 4-6 months.
