Thick, lustrous and healthy. Do these words describe the hair on your head? Most women and even men would like to say yes. Having a healthy head of hair not only attracts but speaks mountains about us just by a glance. The market is flooded with products to help all individuals retain, enhance and produce hair, in the right areas of course! Some of these products cost a fortune and may work, although many do not. However what if I told you that in three easy all natural and organic steps you could enhance the health, thickness and luster of your hair? Yes three organic ways that will not cost you a fortune. They simply adjust your diet slightly, how you clean and care for your hair.
Though hair is not living, what you put into your body can deeply affect how healthy your hair is when it does grow. If you are struggling with hair loss, analyzing what you are eating is very important. The biomaterial that composes your hair is made up of protein, primarily keratin. So this leads to the question, are you getting enough protein in your diet? Red meat, beans, eggs, nuts, fish and legumes are some of the healthiest proteins one can eat that your hair will love. By adding additional protein to your diet daily you can be confident to see a difference in the abundance and health of your hair.
Next, would be how you clean your hair. Stripping your hair of the needed oils that keep it hydrated doesn’t encourage growth. Is it possible to not wash your hair every single day? Also important to examine is the shampoo and conditioner you use. Not all shampoo is the same. Primarily make sure that your shampoo is sulfate free. The sulfates strip your hair of their natural oils that encourage it to grow. Of course no one wants to have a greasy head of hair, but by using you a sulfate-free shampoo you are cleansing your hair without stripping it of its luster and thickness.
Finally, it is to be noted that stimulating the hair follicles on your scalp encourage hair to grow. It is important to give yourself a good scalp massage every day. Not only does this encourage blood circulation to your scalp but also encourages the growth of new hairs which adds to its thickness. Something to encourage hair growth also when doing the scalp massage is to put a few drops of either tea tree or peppermint essential oil on your finger tips to rub into your scalp. This accomplishes the same thing as the massage by encouraging circulation to your scalp. It’s natural, healthy and smells refreshing.
Yes, we all want that beautiful head of hair that is healthy, lustrous and thick. But by eating more protein in our diet you can ensure that our hair has the nutrients it needs to grow. When cleaning your hair with sulfide free shampoo you are preventing our hair from being stripped by the oils it needs to stay hydrated and healthy. Then by stimulating circulation to your scalp we are encouraging new growth. With these easy, organic tips you are sure to see a difference!
