Tips And Tricks For All Styles Of Hair
I recommend hair cuts every 6 to 8 weeks are effective for breakage, split ends, and growth reduction.
When you wash your hair consider using warm water, not hot water. Few know that using hot water can dry your hair out. Lukewarm water is much better, especially for colored hair.
Your hair will also benefit from your diet. Protein, also known as a building block for hair, will enter your hair only if you eat sufficiently. Iron is also an important source of life for hair. When the body doesn’t have enough, hair growth can be affected. According to the US National Library of Medicine National Institute of Health, “Micronutrients are major elements in the normal hair follicle cycle, playing a role in cellular turnover, a frequent occurrence in the matrix cells in the follicle bulb that are rapidly dividing. Management of alopecia is an essential aspect of clinical dermatology given the prevalence of hair loss and its significant impact on patients’ quality of life. The role of nutrition and diet in treating hair loss represents a dynamic and growing area. “, Vitamins A and C are worth looking out for too. And don’t forget omega-3 fatty acids. These are great for hydration and moisture.
Hairstyles matter too. Even putting hair up in a tight ponytail can cause strain, so leave it down to stop the pull. If you don’t need to use a styling product, don’t use it. Also, if you can let your hair air-dry the more the better. This way you are avoiding potential damage caused by straighteners and flat irons.
