When it comes to healthy hair, it’s not just what you put on your tresses that count — it’s what you put in your body, too. The days of cooler temperatures and fashionably warm hats are near; the combination of brittleness from the sun and lack of moisture from the chlorine/saltwater can give you unlimited bad hair days. The colder months can be brutal, and not just on your heating bill…our hair takes a beating too!
A diet that’s centered on fresh fruits and vegetables, fish, moderate amounts of red meat and whole grains is beneficial for both your hair and your body. Eating a healthy diet will keep your scalp healthy and moisturized, eliminating your nippy weather hair woes. Start your pre-Autumn hair care prep with these 4 tips to maintain healthy hair growth during the chill:
Drink lots of water. If you don’t hydrate your body, your hair follicles will not be healthy enough to produce the keratin you need to grow healthy hair.
Drink green tea. The more green tea you drink the more DHT blockers you get into your system and the more you reduce your chances of your hair shedding.
Massage your scalp. Just as little as 5-minutes at night stimulates your scalp, increases blood flow and can increase the rate of hair growth.
Consume protein. Protein will help your hair follicles produce keratin and give your strands strength.
