Healthy Hair - get yours!

So we've all heard the phrase, 'you are what you eat'. 
Well best believe it is as real as that! 
The primary source for proteins, vitamins and moisture 
in our hair comes from what we eat and not solely the
products we use. 
Want stronger hair... fish for proteins
Need more moisture... drink more water
Need healthier looking strands... up your fruit and vegetable intake
and so the story goes on...

Silk, satin you name it. Headscarves are a must
 when embarking on a HHJ (HealthyHairjourney).
Friction and rough surfaces cause our hair to break 
off due to texture differences.
What’s more a splash of your favourite leave- in 
conditioner followed by an oil to seal before bed, keeps
your hair moisturised and nourished while you sleep.
Not only is it important to keep your ends trimmed and prim. 
It is also important to invest in a real pair of salon scissors. 

They do not have to cost you your months salary but 
a bad pair of scissors may present you with more split 
ends then you bargained for. A regular trim helps to keep split 
ends at bay. If you’re not so scissor friendly, give dusting a go!

Despite the wonderful tricks a curling wand and our straighteners can perform.
 There are also several heat free ways to maintain/create straight hair and curls.

Curly heat free hair: curl formers, rollersetting, pin curls, 
twist outs, braid outs, bantu knot outs
Straight heat free hair: rollerset followed by wrap, 
saran wrap, airdrying and wrap etc 

If you do have to use heat...don't forget to reach for a heat protectant. Heat protectants do their best to protect our hair cuticle from heat damage by shielding our hair cuticle. Prevention is better than cure!

The sun may make our hair look L’oreal perfect beneath its beautiful glow, but do not be deceived, too much sun exposure can severely dry out our hair. 
Cold summer rinses help boost lustre and shine in your hair.

All you need to do is finish your wash routine with Conditioner 
and rinse this out with cold water. 
A shock at first, but the results are worth it.
 Cold water helps close your cuticles, thus sealing 
in moisture and increasing blood circulation to the scalp. 

If you're searching for a way to boost hair growth, then a scalp
 massage really is the easiest and most cost efficient way to do this. 
The importance of a scalp massage cannot be stressed enough! 

It stimulates blood flow to your scalp and increases oxygen intake 
to your hair follicles, which of course results in faster growing hair. 
On the plus side it is extremely relaxing and soothing!
