Having a nutritious diet

Did you know that one of the biggest ways you can care for your hair is to have a diet that is nutritious? This includes drinking plenty of water and consuming protein. For instance, meat and lentils are great sources. Green leafed vegetables promote hair growth as it contains Vitamin A. Cod liver oil and carrots are good too.  If you’re not getting everything you need from your diet you should consider supplementing your diet with vitamins.  Hairfinity is a great brand.  I’ve reviewed them here and you can also use Hairfinity coupons.

Avoid hair style products

Although sold for the purpose of styling hair, these type of products should be avoided as they often contain harsh chemicals that only harm hair growth in the long-term. If you must use them, it’s a good idea to use them on rare occasions.

Aloe Vera for adding shine and volume

Aloe Vera is not just for soothing burns, it can also be used to enhance your hair and give it a new feel. You simply apply small amounts to your hair rather than hair conditioner. It comes in a gel, allow it to remain on your hair for a couple minutes and then rinse out. Frequent use will lead to benefits to your hair. Another option is to create a hair mask with aloe vera and let it sit for half an hour before rinsing.

Avoid oily hair

It may seem like common sense, but you may be surprised how often people go without actually washing their hair. This can lead to a buildup of oil on the scalp, dandruff, and dirt as well. However, it’s not recommended to wash it daily as the hair does have natural oils that promote hair growth. Everyone has their own balance; this could be a few days or a week.

Choosing the correct shampoo/conditioner

With an entire aisle dedicated to shampoo and conditioner products in just about every store, it can be challenging to choose. The best way to decide if the product is the best one for you is simply by trying it out for a certain period of time, say a couple weeks. Pay attention to what you need it to do, does it improve your hair, make it worse, or no change at all? Find the combination that’s best for you, then stick with it.

Overall, the best thing to do is start out using the correct shampoo and conditioner for your hair type. From there, don’t over wash your hair, but keep it washed regularly. If you still need extra care, switch your conditioner for aloe vera or do a hair mask each week. This can lead to many added benefits.
