Tips for Better Hair Health

Tips for Better Hair Health

Hair is an important part of our identity, and it can take a hit as we age. There are steps you can take to keep your hair healthy, strong, and shiny.

Here are some key strategies:

Nourish from Within: Hair is made mostly of protein, so ensure you're getting enough in your diet. Lean meats, fish, eggs, nuts, and beans are all great choices. Deficiencies in iron and vitamin D can also impact hair health.

Collagen Connection: Collagen production declines with age, research suggests this may contribute to hair thinning. Including collagen-rich foods (bone broth) and add in daily collagen peptides which will help provide the building blocks your hair needs to stay strong.

Wash Wisely: Frequent shampooing can strip your hair of natural oils. Aim to wash your hair 2-3 times a week, and use a gentle, sulfate-free shampoo. 

Add in Moisture: Combat dry hair it with a leave-in conditioner (this is my favorite!!) or hair oil, and consider deep conditioning treatments once a week. 

Heat on Low: Minimize your use of hot styling tools like blow dryers, curling iron and straighteners. If heat styling is necessary, apply a heat protectant spray beforehand to shield your hair from damage.

Control Stress: Chronic stress can contribute to hair loss. Prioritize relaxation techniques like yoga or meditation to manage stress and promote overall well-being, which can reflect in the health of your hair.

By incorporating these tips into your routine, you can keep your hair looking and feeling its best at any age. Remember, just like anything, consistency is key!
