While making sure your hair looks good is one thing, taking care of your overall hair health will help you to maintain thick, glossy locks for many years.
Why is hair health important?
Good hair health goes far beyond regularly cutting, washing and brushing your locks.
While all these will help to keep your hair looking good, looking after your hair’s health will help you to maintain a strong and healthy mane even as you grow older.
A well-balanced, healthy diet is important when it comes to maintaining the health of your scalp and your hair.
Diets which are rich in lean proteins from meat, fish, pulses and dairy products help promote strong hair growth, while not getting enough protein can result in weak, brittle hair, loss of hair colour and premature hair loss.
How can I keep my hair healthy?
Alongside a protein-rich diet, supplements which contain Zinc and Omega fatty acids can help promote good hair and scalp health.
A Zinc deficiency can cause hair loss, so make sure you eat lots of nuts and leafy greens to get your recommended intake.
Omega-3s, meanwhile, help to stimulate your hair follicles and sebaceous glands which can, in turn, improve the health of your scalp. These essential fatty acids can be found in oily fish, like mackerel, sardines and salmon.
Limiting your hair’s exposure to sunshine will prevent its natural oils from drying out, while avoiding shampoos and conditioners which contain certain harmful chemicals – such as sulphates – can also prevent damage to the hair and scalp.
Try to use hair products with natural ingredients instead.
