5 Habits for Healthier Hair

  • Proteins are an important element of hair growth. Most hair products boast protein infused formulas due to the proven importance of proteins like keratin to hair growth.Eat your proteins! A protein-rich diet, with eggs, chicken, meat and nuts can directly promote healthy hair growth.
  • Understand your hair type. Knowing your hair type will be most valuable to your pocket-no more dishing put money on products that don’t work for you. Not every hair type is the same and as a result, no hair treatment or hair routine is one-size-fits-all. Some key areas to be able to differentiate your hair type:
  1. Your Hair Texture
  2. Porosity of your hair. This describes the ability of your hair to absorb and retain moisture.
  3. Density of your hair
  • Turn down the temperature on your wash day shower. Washing your hair in higher temperature water dries out the hair and scalp. It is no secret that cold water closes pores and therefore allows for a more of a deep cleaning of the scalp without getting dirt into pores. Cold water also helps with moisture retention as the hair cuticles are close to lock in oils and natural hydration.
  • Try to keep your hair routine as natural as possible. Reduce the use of products with additives such as sulphates, parabens and silicone.
  • GET THOSE EDGES! Invest in a silk pillowcase. Silk reduces the friction between your edges and the surface of the pillow. Healthy edges, happy life!
