Much like the rest of your body, your hair goes through changes as you get older. The hair cycle — rest, shed and grow — slow downs, and can lead to hair loss, which can be very traumatizing.

“Your hair changes every seven years,” explains women’s hair restoration expert Lucinda Ellery. “There are 150,000-200,000 hairs on our heads; we actually shed 100 a day, 36,000 in a year on average. It regenerates at approximately the same rate, although a little bit less each trimester.

“By the time you’re 15, it’s the best head of hair you’ll have for your entire life.(Editor’s note: Wah!) By the time you’re 30 there will be a significant change in your hair, but not one you may have clicked into mentally. By the time you’re 37, 40, there’s a marked changed. This is where people panic — it’s a natural cycle of aging.”

“The causes are always the same,” says Dr. Mickey Barber, president of Cenegics Carolinas, an age management institute. “The number one reason is stress, number two is iron deficiency and the number three is hormonal, which could be affected by menopause, perimenopause.”

Instead of panicking at the strands of hair in your brush, Ellery recommends taking control of your body by eating healthier.

“It’s really how healthy your body is. You start to notice more shine and elasticity, if you start treating your body from within.,” Ellery told the Huffington Post. “if you have a way of finding out if your body is acidic, imbibe foods that would make it more alkaline: Fresh vegetables, fresh salads, fresh nutrients in our drinks and our foods. [Avoid] acid making foods like milk and dairy products, breads, and potatoes [because they] change the pH value of your body.”

Walnuts

Nuts are great for fighting hair loss, Ellery says. “They have oils which contribute to the elastin in your hair [and] contributes to the growth. If you don’t have enough oils in the body your hair will snap.”

But don’t overdo it, she advises. “It will make your hair lank.”

Spinach

Iron deficiency is the second cause of hair loss, and the easiest to treat, according to Dr. Mickey Barber, of the age management institute Cenegics Carolinas.

Spinach is rich in minerals and vitamins — iron, beta carotene, folate and vitamin C — which “keep hair follicles healthy and scalp oils circulating,”

Halibut 

Foods rich with magnesium help with hair growth, explains Ellery. A lack of magnesium can cause hair loss. Halibut (and other types of fish) are rich in the mineral.

Image

Carrots

Carrots are rich in beta carotene, which the body turns into vitamin A. When it comes to your hair, vitamin A helps produce scalp-sustaining oils.

Image

Bok Choy

Dermatologists treating hair loss look at your ferritin levels, which detect if your body has a good level of iron and the health of your hair, explains women’s hair restoration expert Lucinda Ellery. Help get those ferritin levels up by eating bok choy, which is rich in iron.

Hair straighteners are each girl’s salvation, specially during bad hair days. In addition to getting rid of the frizz, it makes the hair look sleek and faultless.

Brush Gently

Be gentle on your scalp when brushing your hair. You can scratch your scalp, cause hair breakage and even inflammation and bleeding in extreme cases. Choose a brush with prounded progs – and avoid metal combs and spikes, which can do the most damage.

Hair Straighteners

Yes, we’ve all heard how damaging hair straighteners can be for you hair. But have you considered your scalp? Straighteners put too close to your scalp can burn the delicate tissue and even cause infection and scarring. Be careful!

Image

Style Right

Too-tight ponytails and braids can cause a sore scalp and snap your precious strands like rubber bands. Over time, this stress to your scalp can permanently damage your hair follicles and cause a type of hair loss called traction alopecia. Reserve high-traction styles for special occasions – in the interim, embrace the loose updos seen on the LFW catwalks.

Don’t Ignore Dandruff

Dandruff can be very uncomfortable and is known to worsen hair shedding in certain people. If you notice flaking/itching of the scalp, invest in a good flacky/ıtchy shampoo.

 Carry out the straightening just on dry hair

Hair is more vulnerable when it is soaked. Never utilize straightening iron right after a baby shower. Dry your locks initial before by using a hair iron.  Remember to in no way sacrifice your hair’s health regarding beauty.

5 Foods For Beautiful Hair

5 Foods For Beautiful Hair

 

We all want healthy, shiny hair-commercial locks, but the reality isn’t always as pretty.  After all, we do damage to our hair everyday through heat styling, outdoor activities sun exposure and more.  Luckily, you are what you eat – or rather, your hair is.  According to WebMD, the nutrients from the foods you eat can actually “fortify the hair follicle” where each strand starts.  In other words, eating certain nutrient-rich foods can actually improve the state of your hair! Incorporate these 5 foods into your diet for happy, healthy locks:

1.) Salmon: Salmon is full of omega-3 fatty acids, which keep your scalp hydrated and healthy.  After all, beautiful hair starts with a happy scalp!  About 3% of the hair shaft is made up of these fatty acids, so loading up on them will help keep your hair looking shiny and strong.

Image

2.) Walnuts: Another food full of omega-3, walnuts are also a great source of biotin and vitamin E.  Biotin (also known as Vitamin H) is a b-complex vitamin that helps your body metabolize fats and proteins, as well as promote healthy skin and hair.  In past studies, lack of biotin in the body has resulted in hair loss and breakage, as well as dry skin and brittle nails.  The Vitamin E in walnuts helps protect your cells from DNA damage and promotes hair growth (it’s one of the main ingredients in my Dıy eyelash growth serum!).

Image

3.) Orange foods:  This may be surprising, but a lot of orange-colored foods can help promote scalp and hair health. Why? Because they’refull of beta caroten a reddish-orange pigment that your body turns into vitamin A during the digestion process.  Like I said in my Vitamin Beauty Guide vitamin A is a key ingredient in the growth and renewal of new skin cells – scalp included. Lack of vitamin A can leave you with an itchy, dry scalp and even pesky dandruff!  Eating orange foods like sweet potatoes, carrots, cantaloupe, mangoes, pumpkin and apricots is an easy way to give your body a beta-carotene boost.

Image

4.) Eggs: This breakfast favorite is an amazing hair helper! Your hair is primarily composed of a protein called keratin, so eating protein-rich foods will promote hair growth and health.  Eggs are not only full of protein, but they also contain hair-boosting minerals and vitamins like zinc, selenium, sulfur, iron and biotin.   It’s considered a high-quality or “complete” protein source, which means it also provides all of the essential amino acids. Cysteine is the most important amino acid for hair growth; it’s a powerful antioxidant that protects your hair from the sun’s radiation and bonds with other proteins in the hair shaft to actully increas the thickness of this strand!

Image

5.) Dark, leafy greens: Veggies like spinach, broccoli, kale and Swiss chard are full of iron, beta-carotene, folate and vitamin C.  According to livestrog folic acid – the synthetic form of folate – is often taken to help aid cell and tissue growth.  However, some people swear it helps their hair grow too! Because there may be possible negative side effects from taking folic acid, it’s best to get folate from natural sources like leafy greens instead.

How to Take Care of Your Hair

How to Take Care of Your Hair

Maintaining your hair is relatively easy with the right kind of steps. Hair is made of protein, so keeping a healthy diet and good hygiene is an essential part of maintaining luscious locks. At the same time, here are some other tips about hair care, and what you can do at home to get unbelievably beautiful hair.

Image

1

Wash hair sparingly with a good-quality shampoo. Many people insist that washing hair too often can leave hair dried out, leeched of its natural oils, and damage your hair. Shoot to shampoo your hair at most every other day. Some people wash their hair only twice a week.

  • Try shampoos that do not contain sulfates or parabens. Sulfates are the chemicals that make shampoos lather up. Parabens are preservatives that cause irritation and eye problems after prolonged use. Both of these chemicals aren’t healthy for you or the environment so try to use shampoos with natural cleansers.
  • Choose a shampoo that suits your hair type. Don’t just go for any old shampoo; go for the shampoo that works for you!
    • Curly or coarse hair probably wants frizz-minimizing and softening shampoo.
    • Straight or oily hair probably wants a gentle shampoo designed for daily washing.
    • Colored or treated hair probably needs a shampoo that’s fortified with extracts or amino acids, because treating your hair is essentially damaging it.
    • Dry hair probably needs shampoos with glycerin and collagen to help restore some moisture into the hair.

Use conditioner depending on your hair type, length, and treatment damage.A good rule of thumb is to condition every time you shampoo your hair, although very processed or dyed hair probably needs a little more love than natural hair.

  • Deep condition  once a week. Use a store-bought product, or venture out on your own and try a homemade solution.
  • Follow these steps for conditioning your hair properly based on hair type:
    • For fine hair: If you have very limp hair, try a botanical oil treatment before you shampoo. Use lavender or tea-tree oil, for example, and work it under your cuticles before shampooing. Wash shampoo away and apply conditioner from the mid-shaft down to the end. Leave in for a minute before washing
    • For medium to thick hair, use a moisturizer with natural hydrators. Keep your conditioner light. Apply conditioner all over your head and let stay for 2-3 minutes.
  • Be careful about using products with too much protein. Too much protein can leave your hair feeling desiccated and brittle. While protein is the building block of healthy hair, use conditioners that come with balanced ingredients.
  • Frizz-control serum can be used in small quantities to tame frizzes. Make sure you do not use too much, and wash once a week with a deep-cleanse shampoo to avoid build-up, which will leave hair looking dull and flaky.

Don’t brush your hair too much. One more surprising habit of people with beautiful hair is their reluctance to use a brush. Many women (and men) prefer only using a natural-fiber comb to detangle hair immediately after showering, and only then taking one pass through.

  • Brushing or stimulating the scalp can pull hairs from the follicles, create split-ends, and create irritation. Contrary to the old wives’ tale, giving your scalp a massage or 100 brushes a day will not stimulate hair growth.

4

Let hair dry naturally. After you get out of the shower, give your hair a quick pat-down, squeezing the hair gently between the towel. Do NOT rub the hair, this can weaken the follicle and make the hair brittle and dull. Afterwards, give your hair a quick brush-through to get rid of tangles and let your hair dry naturally.

  • Try not to use a blow-drier. Healthy hair does not respond well to heat. Hair can sustain heat damage easily, especially from blow-driers. If you have to use a blow-drier, dry your hair using the lowest-temperature setting and limit usage to once a week.
  • If you shower before you sleep overnight, put your hair up in a bun and let it air-dry overnight. Your hair should be dry in the morning.

Eat healthy and give your hair the right amount of vitamins. Since hair is made of proteins, make sure that you eat a balanced diet rich in lean protein, whole grains, fruits and vegetables. A healthy diet will ensure better-looking, better-feeling hair.

  • Make sure you get plenty of vitamin C (strengthens hair), iron (helps transport oxygen to blood vessels), zinc (grows and repairs tissue), and omega-3 fatty acids (grows healthy hair).
  • Give your hair some time to show new brilliance. What you eat will not have an immediate difference on the hair you already have, but it will help with hair that is newly growing.
