We all want our hair looking beautiful and radiant because having beautiful locks makes us feel really feel good, a confidence boost so to speak. But there are times when our hair becomes very dry and frizzy, making our hair very difficult to style and manage.
But not to worry, in every problem there is a solution. Actually, managing dull, dry and frizzy hair is not that difficult, it’s just learning or knowing how to properly take care of hair to promote healthy hair growth. Below are some tips on how to nourish hair get back its natural and beautiful look.
- Do not use heat. The use of hot ceramic hair straighteners, curlers and blow dryers are an easy way to style hair. Unfortunately, too much heat styling can damage hair. These instruments can reach very high temperatures that can literally vaporize the little moisture the hair holds, leaving hair really dull and dry. This will also cause hair breakage which can really affect hair growth. It is best to limit use of these hair products.
- Eat Healthy. Consuming the right amounts of foods is the key to healthy hair growth. Nothing can encourage hair to grow better than a eating healthy and nutritious foods. Protein is an important nutrient since this is what hair is mostly made off. If you’re in some kind of weight reduction program don’t go for those low protein diet plans, this can affect hair growth. Foods rich in protein are soya, lentils, milk, cheese, fish and lean meat from chicken, pork and beef.
- Hygiene. Daily washing help keep the scalp clean which makes it ideal for hair growth. Underneath our skin there are these glands that produce a special oil called sebum, which acts as a natural skin and hair conditioner. But too much sebum can make hair really greasy which can attract a lot of dust and dirt into the hair and scalp. This oil, dirt and dust can accumulate in the scalp and could be a medium for bacterial and fungal growth.
- Scalp massage. Massaging your scalp a few minutes a day increases blood circulation; therefore, increasing oxygen and nutrient transfer to the hair follicles.
