Tips to keep your hair and scalp healthy

TAKE CARE OF HAIR

Hair is dead, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't care for it. You should wash it regularly and make sure to keep your scalp clean. Be aware of environmental factors as well. According to the American College of Dermatology, here are some simple precautions you can take.

  • Be careful in the sun, wear a hat when you go outside.
  • Be careful around chemicals such as chlorine in pools. Always wash your hair after you go swimming.  
  • Limit products and treatments that make hair curly or straight or change its color as they can damage your hair
  • Be careful when you style your hair. Gadgets such such as curling irons, flat irons and hair dryers can cause hair to break if used excessively, especially when your hair is already dry.

HEALTHY DIET

Regardless of how health conscious you are, if you are not eating the right diet, nothing can bring those luscious locks back. Hair structure is made from hardened protein, which you can get from eating a protein-rich diet. Other essential elements essential for growth are Biotin, Omega 3 acid, Zinc, and Iron. Eating food rich in these nutrients will promote hair growth and build strong immunity from any possible health disease.

DON'T ACCELERATE GREYING PROCESS

Greying is a natural process, which is visible from person to person, depending on their genes. But sometimes unhealthy lifestyle and escalating stress level can result in premature greying. Try to ensure you consume the right vitamins such as Vitamin B and limit your stress levels to prevent premature greying.
