If you’ve been wondering how to get the kind of shiny, bouncy hair they show in shampoo commercials, here’s a few things you can do:
- Remember not to brush your wet hair too much
- Start with the lowest heat and then increase slowly towards high heat when using styling products
- Massage your scalp to promote hair growth and blood supply
- Cut your hair every 3 months to avoid split ends
- Avoid excessive alcohol intake.
Lifestyle Changes Recommend for Healthier Hair
If you haven’t been doing yoga or meditation, perhaps now is the time you started. Mental or physical stress can cause excessive hair loss. Dermatologists say that once the stressor is out of your life, usually hair growth becomes normal, so try and relax.
Listen to your hair
Everyone has a different type of hair. Something that works well for you might not work well for someone else. Using the wrong shampoo for your hair type can result in hair loss and damage. Try not to use shampoos with harsh components, such as sulfates. Conditioning your hair after shampooing is something a lot of people tend to skip, but it is essential for soft and silky hair. Additionally, PRP treatment and hair growth treatment in Auckland have shown successful results. Similarly, Keratin helps to strengthen the hair strands. Dermatologists say Nioxin present in Keratin treatment makes your hair look better and healthier and could be an effective hair loss treatment.
Foods For Gorgeous, Shiny Hair
The phrase “you are what you eat” applies here too. A balanced diet is essential for healthy hair and a healthy scalp. As hair is mainly composed of proteins, experts recommend the intake of at least 45 grams of protein daily to keep your hair healthy. The health of the hair largely depends on the quality and quantity of the diet that you ingest. A diet rich in nutrients and vitamins improves your hair growth and makes it shinier. Some ingredients that are beneficial for hair health and improve your hair growth include:
Chia seeds are rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, which are an integral component of the cell membrane, and an energy-rich source essential for shiny hair.
Green tea can help with moisturizing a dry scalp and dehydrated ends. It is a source of Vitamin A, which stimulates the production of sebum to keep the hair healthy and hydrated.
Lemons are rich in vitamin C, which helps to produce Collagen. Collagen is an essential structural protein that makes up different tissues in our body and is necessary for hair growth.
Whole grains, such as wheat and barley, are rich in Biotin, which prevents hair breakage. They also contain Zinc, which keeps the scalp healthy and moisturized.
To have beautiful hair, we need to consciously take care of our diet and hair practices. It’s time that you start eating well and using the correct products to have well-nourished hair!
