We all want a beautiful head of hair, but we don’t want to do damage to the hair we already have by over styling it. Finding the right balance between styling and nurturing takes some planning and understanding. The article that follows helps you do what it takes to have healthy hair.
Healthy hair is an outcome of a body that is healthy. Make new hair growth healthy by eating a nutritious diet, taking beneficial supplements and drinking enough water each day. Dark green vegetables, brightly colored fruits, whole grains, nutritious protein and healthy fats provide the building blocks for vibrant, healthy hair.
Cut back on using small appliances on your hair to renew its condition and strength. Over-use of curling irons and blow dryers can damage your hair, which can lead to frizzy hair and split ends. Periodically, don’t heat your hair and give it a rest!
Look at your diet if your hair is not looking that great. If you eat a lot of Omega 3, vitamin E, and ironm you should have better looking hair. If you follow a certain dietary plan that does not contain the nutrients you need, talk to your doctor about supplements for hair health.
Avoid blow-drying your hair. Heat styling can be damaging to your hair, and often leaves it looking frizzy. What you should do instead is keep your hair wrapped up in a towel for a little while. This lets your hair naturally dry, and prevent too much frizz.
Ignore the myth about trimming make hair grow quicker. Whether you trim or not, hair grows around a half inch per month. Your hair might grow faster in the summer or if you are taking supplements such as biotin, this is a hormone, not scissors. Occasional trims can remove split ends, however, leaving your hair looking much healthier.
When you blow dry your hair, you can damage it. To prevent damage from blow drying, use the cool setting on your hair dryer and keep the air moving so that no one spot gets too hot. Make sure you untangle any knots in your hair as it dries so you do not cause it harm when you brush.
It’s important to make sure your hair can retain moisture so that it doesn’t become dry and brittle, as this can lead to breakage. Adjusting the water temperature of your shower or bath can help. Once your hair has been shampooed, turn the water down to a cool temperature before rinsing it. This can seal moisture in the shafts.
Never rub or tug at your hair with a towel while drying it. Not only will this cause damage to your hair at the roots, but it will also stretch the hair and cause it become frizzy and thin. Instead, pat, blot or gently squeeze excess moisture from your hair, or wrap it loosely in a towel. Also, be careful brushing your hair while wet, as this can also cause damage. Instead use a wide-tooth comb.
Having great hair can be a challenge. All the products and tools we use to control our hair can wear it down. With any luck, this article can help you balance control, condition and style simultaneously.
