Health and beauty starts with beautiful hair. One of the first things people notice when they see you is your hair, so it is important to keep it shiny and healthy. The best way is to have a balanced diet full of healthy, natural foods. If you eat fatty, greasy, processed, and sweet foods, you will find you will have oily, fine, limp, and dull hair. Circulation is also very important for healthy hair, so exercise regularly and drink plenty of water.
These are my 3 Secrets to Beautiful Healthy Hair:
1: Avoid two-in-one shampoo and conditioner products.
You should not use 2-in-1 shampoo and conditioner products ever. how can one product effectively do opposite tasks at the same time. Shampoo is designed to have one affect on your hair, while conditioner is supposed to do another.
Shampoo opens the pores or scales on the hair follicles and cleans away any build-up of oil, dirt, and pollutants, While Conditioner closes or smoothes the follicles down, filling them with clean moisture and protection. Regardless of your hair type, you should use a shampoo and separate conditioner for your hair type.
2: Avoid Over Combing or Brushing Your Hair:
Every time you comb or brush your hair you are helping the movement of sebum from the scalp down the hair shaft, which may increase the appearance of oily hair.
The less you handle your hair the better. Also a major cause for damaged hair is too much friction, a rough brush or even a good brush used too often can cause damage as well as abrasion from rubber bands, and other hair accessories, especially if your hair is just washed and wet as it loses its ability to stretch and bounce back.
3: Perm and Color Carefully:
Too many people damage their hair from over use of perms, bleaching and colouring. It is absolutely fine to perm or colour your hair, neither will make your hair fall out but when it is done together incorrectly can cause your hair to break. When the break is very close to the scalp, it can make you look as though hair has fallen out.
Always follow product instructions carefully and if you are in any doubt visit a salon or seek professional advice.
Other health and beauty secrets to support beautiful hair:
Make sure you are getting enough protein. Protein is needed by every cell in your body, including the cells that make the hair. Without adequate protein, the cells in your body don't work efficiently and can't make new hair to replace old hair that's been shed. try and eat a couple of portions of fish, chicken or other lean sources of protein every day.
Iron-deficiency anemia can cause hair loss, so make sure you maintain proper iron levels. You can do this by eating a well balanced diet that include iron rich foods such as lean red meat, broccoli, dried fruit, tofu, and soybeans.
Good shampoos along with a good conditioner can help insulate hair against outside damages, leaving you with less damage and softer more manageable hair.
Remember, to have beautiful healthy hair follow these tips and along with a balanced diet full of healthy, natural foods you will see the difference in appearance and texture of your hair.
