Replenish from the inside
As well as giving your hair a treatment, you can also boost its health by replenishing from the inside out! Nutrition greatly affects the quality and condition of your hair. If you feel your hair lacks lustre and shine, check your diet isn’t a contributing factor. Look to:
- Eat a balanced diet your hair loves healthy food rich in plenty of essential fats, carbohydrates, protein and fresh fruit and vegetables. For essential fats, go for oily fish and vegetable oils. With carbohydrates opt for whole-wheat options (bread, pasta), pulses and brown rice. On the protein, front try to avoid red meat – substitute it with fish, chicken, eggs and nuts instead.
- Drink lots of water and minimise the amount of alcohol you drink as this dehydrates you.
- Remember hair loves Vitamins B, C and E, GLA (Gamma-Linolenic Acid) and the minerals zinc and selenium. Make sure you’re getting plenty of these in your balanced diet, take a supplement.
Adjust your regime to rehydrate your hair
One final tip is to check that your hair regime and choice of daily hair products aren’t consequently causing increased scalp and hair sensitivity.
