Although we don't like to believe it, having a poor diet, anxiety and stress can take a toll on your hair.
Hair is also affected by hormonal changes, the weather, hair dyes and treatments with aggressive products, hair dryers, etc.
All these factors act against us and result in hair that is mistreated, devitalised, dry and dull.
Discover the 7 essential tips for putting an end to mistreated hair and get moisturized, soft and beautiful hair.
Professional Products When it comes to treating your hair with Love, and care. Only use professional products that are recommended for the color, or service that has been completed on your hair. Using anything that you would cook with such as Jojoba oil, olive oil, coconut oil only coats your hair and makes it LOOK shiny and healthy when in actuality it is just suffocating the hair strand."you are not a salad so just stop putting it on your hair already" Products are made to go along with your hair care or color service for a reason. If your stylist is using Joico Hair color or Truss Professional Products then you should be using the complimenting product made by that company to keep your color shiny and healthy.
A balanced diet Nutrition is fundamental to have a healthy and beautiful hair, since we need to obtain the necessary nutrients to avoid suffering deficiencies. Our diet must be complete: ● Fruits and vegetables, raw and cooked ● Meats: If possible, poultry and organic, and red meat in moderation ● Salmon and white fish ● Eggs ● Vegetables, at least twice a week ● Wholemeal cereals such as rice, oats, millet, buckwheat or quinoa ● Nuts and seeds ● Avoid dairy products, sugar, refined flours and excess salt
Biotin supplement For people who want to prevent hair loss or have healthier hair, we recommend taking a biotin supplement from time to time. You can find this vitamin in some of the foods we mentioned earlier and also in the following foods: ● Egg yolk ● Liver ● Brewer's yeast ● Wholemeal cereals ● Mushrooms Biotin provides strength and shine to the hair if we consume it regularly, in our diet or as a supplement. Although there are some shampoos that claim to contain biotin, most of them do not have this vitamin among their components. As a result, its difficult to confirm their effectiveness.
Brush every night Brushing our hair every night like the princesses in fairytales is not a ridiculous piece of advice, but a solution to have much softer and nourished hair. With this simple habit we spread the natural sebum of the hair from the roots to the ends, so that we avoid the imbalance of greasy roots and dry ends.
Protecting your hair from the sun Sun exposure can be very harmful to hair and progressively weaken it. We can use hats or caps, as well as jojoba oil.
Cutting damaged hair Even if you don't want to cut your hair, if your ends are dry or open they won’t grow. Cut them a little every month or two, even if it's only an inch. With all these tips you’ll have spectacular hair in no time.
