Hair can be an emotional topic. Ever go to a hairdresser that botched your hair. I have! For my curly girls out there, its pain. You cut 2 inches of curly hair and it shrinks 6 inches!! Mortifying experience that took about 4 years to grow out.
So aside from finding a great hair stylist here are a few things you can do on your own that can help your hair health.
1. Go with your natural hair texture.
You can fight it (like I used to) but to save your locks, embrace your texture. Otherwise you are damaging it by chemically straightening or curling it.
2. Find a stylist that understands your texture.
Curly girls, never ever go into a salon with your hair straight when you are meeting a new stylist! Always go in with your natural hair. This is the key to a good cut and healthy hair.
3. Feed your hair.
True story, as a teen my sister used to torment and embarrass me at work and bring me hair food, in a lunch bag. But seriously, feed your hair healthy protein like fish, green veggies, plant protein. Nuts are great too, almond and walnuts are excellent for your hair.
4. Avoid too many cow’s milk products.
This can mess with your hormones. It is inflammatory, and most commercial dairy is pasteurized and full of hormones.
Hormones affect hair health. Do you best to limit food that messes with hormones, not only for you hair but your health.
5. Drink plenty of water. Simple but effective!
6. De-stress your scalp
Yes a mini massage can ease the tension in your scalp and stimulate hair growth.
7. Use sulphate free hair care.
Sulphates can dry out your hair and can attack the hair follicles. There are many products out there that still foam, but are sulphate free.
These are a few ways that you can maintain your lovely mane. Flaunt your beautiful locks!
