Quick Tips for Healthy Hair

healthy hair

You go to the gym and workout to make sure your body is physically fit. You go to the doctor regularly to stay healthy. You eat the right foods and you get plenty of rest. But are you doing everything you can to make sure your hair is healthy? Check out these tips for healthy hair. 

Eat Plenty of Protein

Protein is an important part of any balanced diet, but did you know that it’s also important to the health of your hair? Both protein and iron are necessary for healthy locks.

Be Careful With Heat

Never ever flat iron wet hair. When your hair is wet, it’s much more susceptible to damage. If you must use the flat iron for styling, air dry, or blow dry your hair on a low setting, before using the iron.

Color Wisely

Do you tend to color your hair at the very first sign of roots (or gray)? You don’t need to! It’s generally recommended that you get your hair colored every eight weeks. That way you’re not putting your hair through the ringer so often. If you want to keep your color looking fresh longer, consider washing your hair less frequently. If you’re still concerned about gray hairs, you can purchase a touch-up kit to make adjustments to your hair in between coloring sessions.

Use Less Product

If you’re layering product upon product to help control your hair, you’re probably doing it wrong. There’s really only four things you need for healthy hair: shampoo, conditioner, styler and finisher. This might be the most important tip of all for healthy hair. Now how can you go about removing all that old product from your hair? You can add a tablespoon of white vinegar to your shampoo once a week to help remove that excess gunk from your hair.
