Regardless of the hair replacement system you choose, it is important to pay some attention to any natural hair you have. You should do what it takes to ensure it remains healthy and strong.

How do you know what healthy hair looks like? How can you tell if your strands are strong? There are often signs that your hair is suffering from dehydration, heat damage, or other “unhealthy” issues. If you can recognize the problems, you can take steps to restore your hair to better health.

Here are some tips to help determine if your hair is in good shape or needs some extra TLC.



Pay attention to how much hair comes out in the shower or on your hairbrush. The average person loses about 80-100 strands of hair each day. Shedding this amount is not cause for alarm-it is a sign of normal, healthy hair shedding.



The healthiest hair feels smooth in texture. Unhealthy hair tends to feel brittle, dry, or stiff. If it is, you probably need to moisturize your hair.



Dandruff can be a sign of poor scalp health which can adversely affect your hair. A healthy scalp should look like the rest of your skin- similar in pigment to your face and have no redness, discoloration, peeling, or flaking.



Shedding and breaking are not the same. If your hair is breaking mid-strand, this is a sign of unhealthy hair. It indicates a lack of moisture. Healthy hair has a nice amount of elasticity.



Healthy hair tends to be shiny, even without product like oil or creme. When hair is healthy, the cuticle lays flat and creates a good surface to reflect light. Hair that does not shine and looks dull is not the healthiest.
