Want healthier, shinier, stronger hair? Read on to hear the five steps to healthier hair!
1. Wash it correctly. Try not to wash your hair everyday if you can, try and aim for every other days or a couple of times a week. Washing it too often will strip it off it's natural oils. Shampoo should be massaged into your scalp where as conditioner should be rubbed into the tips of your hair up towards your roots. For shinier, softer hair leave your conditioner on for a few minutes before rinsing it off.
2. Protect your hair from heat. If you blow dry your hair, try using the cool setting as heat can damage your hair. Heat from straighteners and curling irons can also damage your hair leaving it feeling straw-like Applying a hydrating cream before hand will create a barrier between the heat and your hair.
3. Get a regular trim. Going too long between cuts can cause your hair to split, so make sure you book yourself in for regular trims. If you make them regular you won't need to have as much off all at once. Waiting too long could mean that you'll need a lot more off as the ends may have split a lot further.
4. Treat your hair occasionally. Giving your hair a little treat every now and again will really help you achieve healthier hair. You could use a leave in conditioner once a week and/or purchase hair masks to help get your hair back to a healthy state.
5. Eat well. Eating a well-balanced diet has a proven affect on making our hair healthier and stronger. Foods such as spinach, lentils, sweet potatoes, eggs, walnuts and carrots are all said to be fantastic for improving the quality of our hair because of the nutrients and vitamins they contain.
And lastly, if it's something that affects you, don't be afraid of looking into hair loss treatments. Treatments for hair loss are not just for Men, hair loss affects women too.
