If your locks are lacking in shine then it's time to boost your hair regime with these golden rules of hair care.
If the Euro holiday season has left your hair a little dull after months of celebrating it's time to give your locks some much needed TLC. It’s fair to say that we’re often so focused on our skincare routine that our poor hair gets left behind. When it comes to having luscious locks, it is all about all the small things you do day in and day out that make all the difference. Despite popular belief, there’s no need to spend hundreds of dollars on expensive salon treatments. Just like our skin, all our hair needs is some simple products and a whole lot of tender loving care.
De-stress your hair
Much like you on a Monday morning at work, hair can get a little stressed out too. Harsh products and too much heat styling can delay hair growth and even cause split ends. One of the best ways to improve the way your hair looks and feels is by eliminating the things that stress it out - easy right? Improving the way you take care of it can make a word of difference when you’re trying to grow locks like Rapunzel. Here are a few things that you can avoid for the ultimate mane:
- Stop using high heat to curl or straighten your hair
- Reduce the use of chemical treatments on your hair
- Put your hair dryer away and let your hair air dry more often
- Use a heat protective serum on your hair prior to any heat styling product
- Limit heat styling to once a week to give your hair some breathing space
A few little changes every day and week will have your hair feeling softer and looking better in no time.
Boost your nutrient intake
The healthiest diet for your hair is the healthiest diet in general. A diet full of whole foods, fruit and veg is just as important for your hair as it is for your overall health. Foods rich in iron, zinc, vitamin C, B vitamins and omega-3 have been linked to strong, long, luscious locks.
- Iron: Beans, tofu, greens, lentils
- Zinc: Legumes, seeds, nuts, eggs
- Vitamin C: Bell peppers, dark leafy greens, oranges
- Omega 3: Salmon, avocado, hemp seeds and chia seeds
Give your scalp some love
Never underestimate your scalp babes, it’s just as important as your actual hair. A good deep conditioning treatment once a week will help remove dead skin cells and promote healthy follicle production. The healthier your scalp is, the longer, shinier and thicker your hair is. An at-home hair treatment once a week will nourish and hydrate your hair and scalp so you can one day get to Blake Lively's locks status. An amazing (and cheap) treatment is to use products you have around the house including coconut oil and aloe vera. Lather your scalp and hair with the miracle working ingredients and leave it to soak up the goodness for 2 hours before you wash it off.
