Hair is the first thing people see when you walk into the room and it can say a lot about you. Needless to say greasy, dirty, messy and unrefined hair doesn’t speak very highly of you. Keep your personal hygiene up-to-speed and give your hair the fresh, clean and healthy look it deserves without becoming a hair product junkie.
Protect Your Hair from Heated Styling Tools
If you’re going to use products that expose your hair to extreme heat regularly, be sure to apply a thermal protecting hair product first. Products containing ingredients like Royal Jelly or Vitamin B5 will coat the hair to protect it from damage while conditioning and repairing previous damage.
Shield Your Hair from the Sun
In summertime, we hear lots about protecting our skin from the sun but not so much about our hair. While the effects of the sun on the hair are not life-threatening, they can lead to dry, brittle and dull-looking hair. Look for shampoos, conditioners and leave-in conditioners that offer UVA and UVB protection to prevent excessive dehydration of the hair.
Take Your Vitamins
Although a nutrient-rich diet is key for healthy hair, supplements can help boost strands’ beauty as well. Biotin, a B vitamin, has been found to promote hair thickness and strength as well as increase shine. The Omega-3 fats found in fish oil capsules can improve the health of the scalp and promote shine and a healthier texture. Silica, a trace mineral often lacking in Western diets, may help strengthen hair and reduce the likelihood of damage.
Bad habits like smoking, skimping on sleep or overdoing it with alcohol and processed foods compromise your health—and can be reflected in your scalp and hair. Make an effort to lead a healthy, balanced life and you’ll see a difference in your overall appearance. Also, steer clear of stress, which can lead to a number of health problems, including hair loss. Regular exercise, deep breathing and other relaxation techniques help keep your stress levels low—and your follicles intact!
Use Good Shampoo and Cure
You don’t have to stick with one kind or brand of shampoo or conditioner. For a long time I used the same brand my mother did, then I grew up and tried all kinds of brands until I found one’s I liked. I still try new brands and different things for my hair.
