4 WAYS TO ACHIEVE HEALTHY HAIRThursday, April 20, 2017
#1 DIY NOURISHING HAIR MASK
This is an at-home remedy that I've experimented with a handful of times whenever I run out of hair masks or whenever my tresses need a good deep and rich hair treatment. This recipe is really simple, with only 2 ingredients needed - coconut oil and honey, both as pure as possible.
Simply mix the 2 together, and apply directly to slightly damp hair and leave it in a bun for 20 to 30 mins before rinsing it off. You might need to shampoo your hair twice to get rid of the coconut oil, but trust me this hair mask will deeply restore the most damaged of hair!
#2 HEALTH AND HAIR SUPPLEMENTS
There are many hair and health supplements available out there in local pharmacies that can help with healthy hair growth. One supplement I have been taking daily is flaxseed oil, and I found that after diligent use, my hair is now seemingly more healthy and shiny, with less fallouts.
Flaxseed oils have one of the richest sources of omega-3-fatty-acids which has a ton of other health benefits such as helping wounds heal faster, anti-inflammatory properties, and better skin health.
I've been taking flaxseed oil to help control my eczema flare ups and have seen tremendous results with controlling my skin condition.
If you're looking at health supplements that have beneficial results for hair health as well, you can look for those that contain higher concentrations of Vit C, omega-3, and omega-6 fatty acids, amino acids, B vitamins, Vitamin A and E.
#3 A GOOD HEARTY BREAKFAST CEREAL
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day for me because it is what gets me going for the first few hours of my day. I love having wholegrain breakfast cereal because it is not only healthy, but also promoted healthy hair due to the boost in zinc, iron and B vitamins.
I like to load up my cereals with added nuts and fruits as well, such as almonds, macadamia nuts and sometimes have it with Greek Yogurt, which is good for scalp health especially with the presence of B5 and Vitamin D.
#4 INVEST IN A GOOD EVERYDAY HAIR TOOL
I use a blow dryer on my hair everyday. Before I sleep after I shower and before I style my hair in the morning. In the past, my hair dryers would often cause my hair to become dry and damaged and going in with heating hair tools after just damaged my tresses even more.
That is when I realised the importance of investing in a good, everyday hair tool that would protect my hair and scalp from getting heat damaged.
The Dyson Supersonic definitely needs no more introduction, I've already mentioned on multiple occasions across multiple platforms that it is my favourite hair dryer and in fact, almost unanimously amongst hair care professionals and stylists as the "the" best hair dryer in the world.
Despite the price tag, it still remains as a good and worthy investment in my eyes because of its incredible fast-drying speed, how travel-friendly and lightweight it is, and more importantly, its Intelligent Heat Control technology measures temperature output 20 times a second and a microprocessor (it's almost like a "brain" within the hair dryer) that regulates the temperature to protect your scalp and hair from extreme heat damage due to overheating. This is important ladies, especially for those of you who use a hairdryer and/or styling tools on a regular basis like me.
