Health Tip: Achieve Healthier Hair

(HealthDay News) -- Want your hair to look healthier?

The American Academy of Dermatology suggests how to achieve healthier locks:

  • Wash oily hair more frequently.

  • Wash chemically treated hair less often.

  • As you age, your scalp should make less oil, so you may not need to shampoo as often.

  • Watch for flakes -- which may indicate dandruff or another scalp condition.

  • Concentrate shampoo on the scalp instead of washing the entire length of hair.

  • Use conditioner after every shampoo, or use a 2-in-1 product that cleans and conditions.

  • Apply conditioner on the tips of hair.

  • Choose a shampoo and conditioner formulated for your hair type.

  • When swimming, wet and condition hair beforehand, or wear a tight-fitting cap.

  • Use a specially formulated swimmer's shampoo and deep conditioner after swimming to replace lost moisture.
