We all want healthy, strong, luscious hair, however our busy lives mean our hair can go through a lot of stress. Everyday it is exposed to pollution, air conditioning, central heat from our straighteners. Everyday it’s pulled, twisted, plaited, combed, ruffled, dyed and brushed all leading to hair breakage, hair loss, split ends and damage.
A few lifestyle and hair regime tweaks can make a real difference in the health and vitality of your hair. Here’s an easy to follow list that can give your hair its life back
Take vitamin B supplements
B vitamins like Biotin are great supplements for hair and nails. Find it in any health food store. Ensure there are no other vitamins in the pack for optimum results. Watch your hair become thicker, shinier and more resilient.
Use natural oils and as a leave-in conditioner
Give your hair nutrients with a natural oil that penetrates the hair shaft like coconut or olive oil. If you have thicker, drier hair, then don’t be afraid to leave the oils in for extra nourishment. For thinner hair, use the oil as pre-condition before washing it out and avoid putting it on your roots. Research the hair benefits of natural oils and be amazed.
Reduce the amount of heat and chemicals you use on your hair
Heat and chemicals literally fry your hair. Chemicals for dying and straightening hair are full of harmful ammonia. Heat breaks down the curl pattern of the hair, at the same time damaging the core of the hair shaft. Cut down your use of these and let your hair repair and breath. For a fresh start, consider cutting off the dyed ends of your hair so you start with a healthy canvas.
Make sure to get a professional trim at least every 3 months
Reduce how much dead weight there is on your hair. Dry split ends look terrible and your hair will appear healthier after a trim. Make a trip to a good hair salon for that much needed trim. Removing dead ends will promote growth as the extra weight on your roots is removed.
Tie it up and leave it alone
When your hair is loose, it gets tugged and snagged on clothing, bags and other people. This over a period of time is really damaging to your ends and stops you retaining hair length. Try to experiment with protective hairstyles such as buns and plaits. Aim to not play with your hair, or put any extensions in your hair for a while. Make sure you leave a week long gap between extensions. These add tension and weight to your roots and can lad to bald patches!
No matter how busy you are, you’ll definitely be able to implement these 5 easy tips into your day. Watch how your hair gets shinier, retains length and gets healthy.
