We all want to have a healthy head of hair that’s as thick as it is glossy, but it can be quite tricky for many of us to achieve the mane of our dreams. Tricky, but not impossible as the tips below will prove…
Eat more protein
If you don’t get a lot of protein in your diet, but you want your hair to be healthy and strong, you’re going to need to change that because protein really is the building block of healthy hair. In order to avoid brittle, thin hair, eat at least 45 grams of protein every day and you will soon see a difference.
Get enough zinc too
Zinc is also really important for hair health, and it is a mineral that many of us are deficient in, so it may be worth seeking out a good zinc supplement if you don’t eat enough leafy greens, fruit and veg to get it naturally. Doing so will help to prevent excess shedding so that you have fuller, thicker hair overall.
Use the right shampoo
If you want your hair to look as good as possible, you need to use a shampoo that caters to your specific hair needs, for example, if youtube hair is damaged, you can restore your hair to its original fullness with Joico shampoo and conditioner, or if it is too greasy, you can restore the balance by washing your hair with a baking-soda based shampoo. You may need to try a few products until you find the ones that work best for you, but it will be worth it when your hair looks healthier than it ever has before.
Massage your scalp
Regularly massaging your scalp, either with your fingers or a specifically designed scalp massaging device, will stimulate blood flow to the area, which will help to promote hair growth, and hopefully thicken your hair as it grows too. Do this a couple of times a week and you will soon see a difference.
Wash less frequently
Most people wash their hair too often, and it can strip away essential oils that help to retain moisture and prevent breakage. Ideally, you should not wash your hair every day if you want it to stay healthy. Of course, how often you should wash will depend on your own hair completely so you may need to experiment, but generally speaking, if your hair is very fine or oily, every other day will be appropriate, whereas if it’s thick and curly, you may only need to wash once a week.
From rinsing your hair with cold water to avoiding using straighteners and blow dryers as much as possible, anything you can do to minimise the amount of heat that reaches your hair is going to help prevent split ends, dried out hair and breakage to some extent. Heat and hair really are a bad mix.
So there you have it, some very effective ways of getting healthier hair. Try as many of them as you can and your hair will soon be looking its best.
