Small Changes For Healthy Hair
These small changes can leave your hair healthy, vibrant and shiny.
Change The Way You Eat
According to Dr. Sajjad Khan, the celebrity hair transplant surgeon, nutritional deficiencies are the most likely cause for short-term hair loss in women. You may not be on calorie deficient diet but nutrient deficient. What does it mean? You mostly rely on processed food, sugar, and drinks that probably giving you or exceeding the daily caloric needs but not the nutrients your body needs.
Change the way you eat and turn to nutrient rich diet means add fresh vegetables, fruits, lean protein, whole grains and healthy fats to your daily meals.
Ditch The Cotton Pillow Covers
Yes! it’s important to throw the cotton pillow covers away for good and use silk or satin covers instead. Cotton can absorb the hair moisture while sleeping and leaves hair dehydrated. It also roughs up the hair surface and adds friction that’s why you wake up with tangles & knots. You may need to look at this Most Common Hair Problems & Solutions
Air Dry Hair
You have been doing this wrong all time and is convenient too. Who has time to wait for wet hair to dry naturally? In haste, you pick up a towel and start swooshing around your head but you don’t know the consequences. Hairs are fragile when wet and need extra care and attention. Even if you are in hurry, be gentle with your hair and try to squeeze water out of hair with a towel. Don’t rub them, it can break the hair, roughen the hair surface and causes knots. You have to spend even more time in styling and removing the hair knots.
Get Frequent Hair Cuts
There is a common misconception that we all have “don’t cut your hair if you want to grow them long”. But getting frequent trims are important for the overall appearance of hair. Long hairs are sensitive to split ends. These ends undergo the most moisture loss making hair dehydrated and brittle. Trimming is the only way to get rid of them and it won’t halt the hair growth process.
