If you’ve ever desired long, thick, lustrous hair then you’re not alone. Many women yearn for the kind of thick, long hair you only see on shampoo commercials. Not everyone is born with this type of hair, but even if you were lucky enough to inherit the genetic makeup of your mother’s thin, flat locks then there is still hope.
There are some simple at-home hair growth techniques that anybody can do, as well as an array of salon products that may be able to help you on your quest for strong, long and luxurious tresses. Here are a few diet and hair care habits that encourage hair growth and maintenance, as well as products that are available at your premier Windsor Hair Salon that can help create beautiful, healthy hair as well.
Vitamins and Nutrients
Making sure that you’re getting the right amount of nutrients will go a long way in keeping your hair healthy; this includes vitamins A, C, E and B-complex vitamins which all prevent hair loss. You can find these vitamins and minerals in fresh fruit, veggies and whole grain. Omega-3’s from sources like fish and chia seeds are also very important as are healthy proteins from meat, nuts, beans and legumes.
Follow a hair care routine that encourages hair growth by using only gentle and sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner that won’t strip your hair of its natural oils. Use a purifying rinse once a week to wash away buildup that can develop from regular shampoo and styling products. If this buildup is left on your hair it can smother follicles and slow hair growth. To style your strands use your fingers and avoid harsh brushing as this can pull out or break your hairs. Avoid wearing your hair in tight ponytails, French braids or other styles that pull the hair away from the scalp as this can cause premature hair loss, can make it thinner and can promote a receding hairline. Gentle and loose is the best way to approach your hair.
Herbal washes that include primrose, borage, or sage can promote hair growth. Scalp massages with massage oils comprised of coconut oil, olive oil, almond or avocado oil are also recommended as they open follicles and nourish the roots of hair. Protein treatments once a month can help treat damaged hair and keep it healthy, soft and shiny. These treatments can be found at the drugstore or you local Windsor hair salon.
