Tips To Grow Long Healthy Hair
On average , your hair can grow up to 15 centimetres every year. The secret to healthy good-looking hair is a combination of nourishing your body on the inside, while nurturing your hair on the outside. Follow these tried and tested tips for beautiful, long flowing hair.
1. Ensure your diet contains omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin E, biotin, silica, zinc, antioxidants, protein, sulphur, iron, selenium and folate. If you don’t get all of this from the foods you eat then it may be worth considering taking a multi vitamins – don’t forget to get your dose of vitamin D too!
2. Wash your hair gently and when necessary and use shampoos with little or no sulphates.
3. Condition and nourish your hair with plant-based oils and extracts at least once a week to protect your hair follicles.
4. Avoid wearing tight pony tails or or over styled up do’s where the hair shaft is tugged or treated roughly.
5. Trim the ends of your hair on a regular basis. Even if it doesn’t look like it needs trimming, snipping off a few millimetres a month will get rid of all your split ends. If split ends are left uncared for they will continue to split further up the hair shaft resulting in ruined hair.
6. Allow your hair to air dry wherever possible.
7. Avoid using heated styles, curlers, straighteners etc and when you do always use a protective product.
8. Remember, it is normal for the average healthy person to shed up to 150 hairs per day so when your hair is coming out in your hands – don’t panic! It’s the natural process.
