Remember that before taking a head bath, there are certain tips that one needs to follow, so as to reduce hair fall and the chances of hair breakage.

So, let’s find out how in a few simple ways a shower bath can improve hair growth.


Know Your Hair Type

Most of us feel fresh and energetic when we maintain our appearance. And when we talk about our look, it is the health of the hair that can define our personality. Before you start to whine about your hair fall, try to know and understand the different hair types before taking a shower.


Wash Your Hair Regularly

Wondering how you can improve hair growth with a shower bath? Before heading to wash your hair, try to know the various hair types and its needs for well-being. Just like your skin, knowing your hair type is one of the important head-bath tips. If you have dry to normal hair, try to have a shower head bath thrice in a week, while for oily hair, wash your hair twice in a week.


Oiling Hair Before A Head Bath Helps

Remember that your scalp usually produces natural oil, but it does get stripped due to a hair wash. So, when your natural oil gets washed away from your hair, it could lead to dryness. This is why oiling your hair is important before a head bath.


Massage Hair

One of the simple ways how a shower head bath can improve your hair growth is the complete massaging that it offers. If you have dry scalp then massage your hair with a mixture of olive oil and lemon. Moreover, this warm mixture needs to be gently applied on to your scalp with your finger tips.

Next, you need to dip a towel in hot water and then completely squeeze it. The warm towel can be wrapped on to your head, so as to improve hair growth. Allow it to stay for five minutes before washing your hair in a shower.


Refines Your Hair

Whether it is a cold or hot shower, washing can refine the texture of your hair. However, when it comes to maintaining the texture of your hair and skin, it is the cold water shower that can show wonderful results on your hair.

On the other hand, a hot water shower tends to dry the texture of your hair. Cold shower will try to tighten your cuticles and pores. It also helps to seal the pores in the scalp, which eventually prevent dirt from getting in.


Stimulates Hair Follicles

A shower head bath helps your hair to appear shiny, strong and healthy. Shower head bath stimulates the hair follicles and helps hair to grow faster and thicker.

These are some of the simple ways in which a shower head bath can improve hair growth and help to reduce hair fall.
