Healthy hair is important because it is an extension of one’s personality. What we wear, how we wear it, and how it looks can say a lot about who we are. Our hair is our crowning glory, and we want to always keep that glorified crown on our heads.
While this might sound a little crazy, did you know that your hair’s health, texture and appearance are directly linked to your well-being?
How is our lifestyle affecting the health of our hair?
Our lifestyle can have a massive impact on our hair. The health of our hair is very closely connected to how we decide to live our lives. Here are some of the ways that lifestyle habits can impact your hair:
Stress levels- Down they should go!
Stress can cause your body to produce extra cortisol, affecting your skin and hair. Cortisol can make it harder for your body to absorb nutrients from food, and it also causes inflammation in your body. This inflammation can lead to dryness in the scalp and brittle hair that breaks easily. Meditation is an option you can try out if you are experiencing stress in your daily life.
A Proper Diet – Healthy diet is a solution to many of your hair problems
Many people are surprised when they learn that what they eat impacts their hair more than anything else does! The foods we eat affect the pH balance of our bodies, which affects our hair as well. If you’re trying to get healthy hair changing your diet might be your solution. Make sure you’re eating enough protein and incorporating plenty of fruits and vegetables into each meal or snack throughout the day.
Exercise- Commit to being fit
Regular physical activity helps maintain good health by improving blood circulation, reducing stress, improving self-esteem through increased self-confidence, allowing you to meet new people.
Smoking- maybe don’t?
Smoking is one of the fastest accelerators for hair loss, especially those already predisposed to the condition. Smoking affects the normal oxygen saturation levels, restricts blood vessels, and affects the hair strand and overall health. Researchers have found a link between hair loss and smoking. If you’re seeking ways to improve your hair growth, your pack-a-day habit might cause your thin, damaged hair.
Steps in Hair Care
Hair is our crowning glory, and taking good care is important to get shiny, bouncy and healthy hair.
Give these a try:
Have enough protein
Our hair strands house a protein called keratin that is produced in hair follicles to structure hair. An adequate 45 grams of protein is required to keep hair follicles healthy. Food containing high in protein like lean meat, poultry, fish, beans, low-fat dairy products, eggs, etc., will improve your hair strand and contribute to overall health. An inadequate protein in your diet can result in weak, brittle hair and hair loss.
Have enough Vitamins
Deficiencies in vitamins B12 and D, biotin, riboflavin, iron, and other nutrients are hair loss. Eating a balanced diet may help promote hair growth, especially if you’re experiencing hair loss due to poor nutrition.
Food like green vegetables, fruits, leafy green salad, yogurt, etc., is essential to get healthy, glossy, and celebrity like hair.
Choose the right shampoo.
Avoid shampoos containing harsh ingredients, such as ammonium lauryl sulphate or sodium lauryl sulphate. Choosing the right shampoo is a crucial part of keeping hair healthy. Understand your hair concerns before buying shampoo. It will help you to determine what is best for your hair.
Don’t forget to condition your hair.
After shampooing, conditioner is an essential step in keeping your hair soft, shiny, and manageable. Two conditioner types are available in the market – a separate conditioner or a built-in conditioner—experiment to find out what works best for your hair type to get a celebrity like hair.
