Everyone loves thick, healthy and strong hair. When you look at people or celebrities with bouncing hair you always feel that you should have such hair. Most of us want more volume in the hair, our one fear, thinning hair. Given below are a few things that you can do to almost always strut about with thick and healthy hair:
Consume healthy food:
You might be wondering, what eating healthy food has to do with healthier and thicker hair. A lot, actually! The food that we consume helps our hair grow, in fact, a number of studies have found that eating foods rich in Omega 3 fatty acids helps the growth of hair. Foods that are rich in Omega 3 fatty acids are nuts, so make sure that nuts are in your diet. Similarly fish is also a good food for hair. The protein in fish is known to nurture the hair follicles. Adding green leafy vegetables is also a good idea to your diet as they have zinc and iron which are required for your hair to look healthy and strong.
Use natural skin care products:
Most of us tend to use a lot of skin care and hair products without knowing that they can cause more harm than good. We also tend to use shampoos and conditioners liberally and that too on a daily basis. These are all wrong habits which we need to change. Firstly start by buying only natural skin care products. These products are made from natural substances and they contain no chemicals or just the minimum. Chemicals harm the hair more than anything. People from ages have been using natural hair oils and natural soap nut powder etc which are considered to be great for hair. Regular use of such products will provide the bounce in your hair that you so want. Also make it a point to stick to a brand, if your hair or skin accepts a brand and if you find that it is working well for you, do not change. Frequent changing of brands and products can also have harmful effects on your hair growth.
Massage your hair:
Yes, you read that right, massaging your hair has a lot of benefits. Ideally you should massage your hair with coconut oil or coconut oil enriched with vitamins and minerals. Coconut oil is known to benefit hair. When you massage your head with coconut oil, the blood circulation to the hair cuticles is enhanced and this helps in the growth of the hair. You will have a full head of bouncy hair and you will be the centre of attention.
Dry your hair naturally:
Drying your hair with a hair dryer is one of the prominent causes of hair looking dry and unhealthy. After a bath use a towel to dry your hair naturally. This will help your hair growth. Also do not use equipment like hair straighteners and so on which use heat, these will only harm your hair if you use them frequently.
