To get hair to grow strong, healthy and beautiful, one should follow a good hair care regime. A good diet, daily intake of vitamins and minerals, good hygiene and daily massages can help stimulate healthy hair growth.
The Right Food
Nutrition is vital if you want to get healthy growing hair. Our hair is mainly composed of keratin, a protein also found on our skin and nails. So consuming the right amounts of protein is good for hair growth. Foods rich in protein are: soya beans, lentils, milk, cheese, fish, and lean meat from pork, beef and chicken.
Keep Your Hair Clean
Hygiene also help in the growth of hair. Daily shampooing makes the scalp ideal for hair growth. keeping the hair and scalp clean help control sebum, a natural oil regularly produced by the sebaceous glands found underneath our skin. Sebum is a natural skin and hair condition; it does a good job in keeping our skin and hair moisturized. The only problem with sebum is, if not washed regularly, this oil can accumulate, making hair greasy and oil. This oiliness can easily attract dust and dirt and could sometimes cause fungal or bacterial infections to the scalp. Regular washing help control sebum production.
Do Not Use Heat
The use of hot ceramic plates for hair straightening, hair curlers or blow driers can really damage hair, vaporizing the little moisture the hair hold. Constant use of these products can make hair dull, dry and brittle which can cause hair breakage. Use only when needed or on special occasions.
