4 Tips for Healthier Hair

We all want to know the secrets to healthy, shiny hair. Is it the latest styling product, a salon haircut, or a brand new celeb endorsed product? The answer to having luscious locks might surprise you...

The secret is keeping your hair strong and healthy with proper nutrition and exercise. Experts agree that a healthy lifestyle including a balanced diet with protein and other nutrients along with exercise is the key to improving the look, feel and quality of your hair.

Healthy hair requires the same nutrients and vitamins as the rest of our bodies do. Protein is especially important when it comes to hair health because all hair is made of protein. Protein provides the building blocks, which allows our bodies to replace, repair and grow healthy skin, bones, and hair.

A lack of protein in your diet slows the rate of new hair growth and since you lose hair daily, if it is not replenished quickly your scalp will start to show through. Regular exercise also provides similar benefits to hair quality by improving blood flow to the scalp. The oxygen rich blood flow contains nutrients and antioxidants to the hair follicle keeping your hair healthier and stronger.

What can you do to prevent hair loss and keep your hair healthy and strong?             

  1. Stress Less! Exercising regularly and getting a good night's sleep will help you maintain your hair health.
  1. Eat a well-balanced diet! Iron, Protein, Omega 3 Fatty Acids, Vitamin C & Biotin are all extremely important for hair growth.
  1. Avoid medications and foods that contribute to hair loss. Be sure to consume enough nutritious food - a very low-calorie diet can create serious hair loss.
  1. Don't over process your hair! Avoid over-using flat irons, curling irons and over blow-drying your hair. Be sure not to color your hair more frequently than every 6 – 8 weeks.
