As you get older, in order to maintain the lustrous shine and health of your hair, you’ll have to provide more maintenance and care for it. This entails using the right products, eating healthy and preventing damage by dying and blow drying less.
The first step is making sure you are using the right products for your hair. Often times, we get used to using the same shampoo/conditioner and don’t switch to new ones. Making sure your shampoo is right for your hair type is essential. Pantene Pro-V has made it easier for all us ladies by providing a new line for women with thin, curly, and medium-thick hair. Styling products are also very essential and can make all the difference in how your hair looks. Moroccan oil is a great styling product to use on straight and curly hair, for example. The key is trying new products until you achieve the healthy look and shine you want.
Another important factor is eating the right foods for healthy hair. Salmon, which contains omega 3 fatty acids, vitamin B and iron, will promote a healthy scalp. In order to grow hair in the healthiest way, you’ll need low-fat dairy products like milk and yogurt. The key ingredients are calcium and protein, which promote hair growth. Remember to follow a well-balanced diet of fruits, vegetables, low-fat dairy, proteins, and fatty fish. If you are following a healthy diet and your hair still feels brittle, get a checkup because it might be a health condition that is keeping your hair from being its healthiest.
Lastly, stay away from too much dying and blow drying, which will damage the hair. If your hair is unruly or hard to manage, try a frizz control serum or put on a headband. Limit blowdrying to once a month and dying to twice a year. When you want a change in hair color or highlights, go see a professional who knows what they’re doing; you’ll create more damage by doing this yourself.
I hope the above steps will help you on your journey to caring and maintaining a healthy, beautiful head of hair.
