Our hair is our crowning glory. For many of us, a full head of shiny hair can symbolises youth, beauty, health, and gives us a boost of confidence. But with today’s busy lifestyles, rising stress levels and poor haircare routines, we may find our hair dulling in colour, texture and volume.
Our diet and lifestyle plays a big part in how healthy our hair look. In this article, we give you 6 quick tips to boost your hair strength, shine and overall health so you can keep on feeling and looking great.
1. Try Out Oil Therapy
Applying oils are great ways to keep your hair moisturised and healthy, reduce fizziness and breakage. It can heal damaged hair cuticles and make them much stronger, silkier and healthier. Some examples of well-known oils include coconut, argan or almond oil.
2. Fuel Up On Omega 3 & Protein
Protein sources, such as eggs and milk, help to nourish your hair and give it more strength. You can also try adding more foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids, such as salmon, nuts and seeds, and avoiding sugar-rich, processed and junk food.
3. Avoid Excessive heat
Applying excessive heat to your hair can damage its cuticles and cause fizziness, breakage and split ends. Avoid using any procedure that involves a large amount of heat, such as blow-drying or heat perms, and allow your hair to dry naturally if you can.
4. Don’t Wash Everyday
Washing your hair everyday with shampoo can remove your hair’s natural oils that help to protect and nourish it. You may also tend to blow-dry your hair after each wash which adds to the damage. Try to wash your hair once every two days instead and remember to let your hair dry out naturally.
5. Don’t Be Shy To Let It Loose
Tying up your hair often, such as in a tight ponytail or bun, can cause hair breakage, fizziness and loose strands. Try to let down your hair as much as you can, and if you need to tie it up, choose a looser style to prevent hair damage or change the location of your ponytail.
