For many women and some men, the hair is their crowning glory. Having hair that’s strong, thick, and shiny is a very desirable trait to look for in a partner, and always makes a person look better. So how can you make sure that your hair is taken care of from the inside out? Read on to find out.
Sorry, but exercise has to be one of the best ways to improve your entire body and look, including your hair! Nobody likes to admit it, but getting active is a fantastic way to improve your health and looks. Once you get into a routine and find exercise you enjoy, it becomes second nature. Humans were supposed to exercise, so swim, walk, run…whatever takes to get you off your bum and moving!
2. Drink Plenty of Water
Water is a truly enchanted drink. It helps our skin to renew itself and glow, flushes out toxins from our body, keeps us energized, and of course, makes our hair look fabulous! Carry a 2 liter bottle of water around with you every day, and drink from it whenever you can. You should never let yourself go thirsty as that means you’re already dehydrated.
3. Watch What You Eat
No, you don’t need to go on a silly diet, and you definitely don’t need to eat ‘rabbit food’. In fact, under eating can be detrimental to your whole look and health. You might lose weight, but your hair will more than likely fall out! You need healthy proteins, fats, and plenty of vegetables to be nourished from the inside out. Your hair will thank you!
4. Stop Washing Your Hair So Much
Many women wash their hair every day, or at least every other day. I’m going to tell you a secret that might make you gag: I wash my hair twice a week, if that. Don’t judge me. Washing your hair too much strips it of it’s natural oils, and makes it weaker. You’re actually training your hair to get greasy quicker if you wash it too much! The women who have the strongest, healthiest hair wash it the least. There are even women out there who wash their hair once a year or less. True story!
5. Avoid Using Heat on Your Hair
Too much heat frazzles hair and makes it look rank. If you’re drying your hair, straightening it, curling it, and putting all kinds of heated appliances on it regularly, you’re damaging your hair big time. Use heat as little as possible, and make sure you use protecting spray and oil when you do to keep it strong.
6. Don’t Put Too Much Pressure on Your Hair
If you put too much pressure on your hair with tight ponytails, braids, and other styles, you could experience a condition like alopecia. If it’s too late for that, you can look at getting treatment, like a hair transplant from a clinic offering permanent results, or an NHS prescription.
Now you can take care of your hair like a pro!
