Your hair is meant to look beautiful, but it is also a good indicator of your health. Dry, brittle, hair and split ends can make us self-conscience about how we look. These simple health tips can improve not only how you feel, but how your hair looks.
Eating well and getting plenty of sleep can reduce the dryness of your hair. A balanced diet and 8 hours of sleep can make you feel much better in general; but it can also revitalize the health of your hair. A diet with good proteins and plenty of green vegetables can give you the nutrients for softer, healthier looking hair.
Drinking more water can also improve the strength of your hair, as well as improving skin complexion. Hydration increases circulation, which brings nutrients and oxygen throughout your body. The recommended amount to drink throughout the day is, on average, 8 glasses.
Scalp massaging also increases the blood flow to hair follicles. A good scalp massage can be as easy as rubbing your head before bed, or putting a bit more pressure when shampooing your hair in the shower. Brushing your hair to the scalp with a vent brush can also help, while getting rid of knots. When you get a shampooing at Chrysalis, our specialists give you a quality scalp massage while cleaning your hair.
Avoid shampoos with sulfates. Sulfates can damage the hair follicle and dry out the scalp. This can cause dandruff and make more hair fall out. Sulfate-free shampoo gives your hair a chance to recover from this damage.
The sun can do a lot of harm to your hair. The sun can fade the color of dyed hair, or make your natural color get lighter. If you will be out in the sun for a long amount of time, make sure to cover your hair with a sun hat. This is very important in the summer months.
