Tired of your hair looking dull and dry all the time? Here’s how you can change that.
Be Gentle with Your Hair
Love styling your hair with flat irons and curlers? You’re damaging your hair by the frequent use of these heating tools!
It’s alright if you use your straightener every once in a while, but if it has become a part of your daily routine, then your hair is in a lot of trouble. Similarly, blow drying your hair after you shower may be a quick solution for wet hair, but repeated use can damage the hair follicles as well.
Avoid using heat styling tools too frequently as the constant exposure to high heat makes your hair look brittle and dry. When you do use them, make sure you’re also using a heat protectant spray or serum alongside. Also, go easy on the hair styling products such as hair gels and mousses that are loaded with chemicals.
Another mistake people make is brushing their hair too hard or too often, and tying them up in tight ponytails. Be gentle with your hair and only brush or tame it as much is necessary.
Massage Your Scalp
According to a 2016 study, massaging your scalp can help your hair grow thicker and healthier. Additionally, it also improves the blood flow towards your scalp region, which has a positive effect on your mood.
Scalp massages are a great way to stimulate your hair follicles and make them healthier. As the dermal papilla cells stretch, they cause the hair to grow thicker and more voluminous. You can give yourself weekly or bi-weekly scalp massages at home, or make an appointment at a salon.
Increase Your Protein Intake
Made of keratin, your hair needs protein to grow long and strong. Incorporating protein-rich foods in your diet will facilitate not only the health of your bones and muscles, but also your hair follicles.
This is actually the simplest way to take care of your hair. You can include eggs and sausages in your breakfast, opt for a chicken salad for lunch, or treat yourself to smoked salmon for dinner. If these dishes don’t quite suit your taste, then there are also plenty of vegetarian options for you. Lentils and legumes are both rich in protein and will give your hair the nourishment it needs.
Eating healthy really goes a long way when it comes to hair care. In addition to aiming for a protein-rich diet, also avoid junk and processed food. Cut down on your sugar and unhealthy fats intake, and opt for food with a high nutritional value.
