A Guide To Growing Healthy Hair From the Inside Out
If you’ve been slathering on serums, masks and conditioners on your hair for years to no avail, maybe it’s time to rethink your haircare routine. Just as weight loss is best achieved by eating a balanced diet and getting good exercise, as opposed to simply refusing to eat, your haircare routine should be targeted yet multifaceted.
Stronger, healthier, shinier hair comes from within, so here are a few important aspects of haircare most people overlook.
You Are What You Eat
Like in most other aspects of life, nutrition is vitally important to your hair health and looks. A balanced, organic diet is essential to nourish hair follicles, from which hair growth begins.
Fish, nuts, and soy all contain fatty acids that hydrate hair follicles, while eggs, salmon, bananas, and spinach contain vitamins B6, B12, and biotin (B7) that strengthen the hair cuticle. Biotin is also known to aid hair growth and prevents hair loss when taken with zinc.
On the other hand, proteins, the building blocks of hair, are equally important to hair growth and health. Found in meat and fish, but also seitan, tofu, and lentils, protein is a must if you’re looking to transform your hair. Meat and fish are also rich in iron, another nutrient that stimulates hair turnover and replenishment.
(LED) Light Up Your Hair From Within
LED therapy has become a staple in the beauty industry because of its relative ease of use and numerous benefits. LED light penetrates the skin and scalp to trigger your body’s natural healing processes and promote better-looking and healthier hair from within.
For example, red light has been shown to stimulate collagen production, increase circulation, and reduce inflammation of the scalp, all of which support hair health. Harness these benefits, and more, with the new Volume Mist LED Hairpods™ to treat your hair while achieving a flawless, elegant style.
Hydrate Yourself, Hydrate Your Hair
Water is essential for maintaining the proper functioning of all our body’s systems. Water also plays a vital role in carrying nutrients to where they’re needed, including the hair follicles.
Make sure that you’re giving your body the water it needs to cleanse, hydrate, and replenish your body, from head to toe.
Sleep Well and Sleep In
Adequate sleep can do wonders for your health and your beauty routine. Sleep allows our bodies to recuperate from daily activities and stressors while promoting normal body functions and cellular regeneration. Not getting enough rest can result in unhealthy organ function, stress, and even hair loss and brittleness.
Try to get in your 7-9 hours every night. The quality of your sleep is also important. Coffee, energy drinks, alarms, and blue light can all interfere with your usual circadian rhythm (natural sleep cycle). Blue light (like that from your device screens) more than any other color can mess with your sleep cycle by blocking the production of melatonin. Experts recommend avoiding phone and computer screens 2-3 hours before bed to ensure better sleep.
