Take care of your hair, by knowing how to prevent further damage. Here are some tips, how to keep your hair healthy, and avoid unnecessary damage..img_1497
~Washing hair every day, might not be the greatest thing for your hair. By doing that you are stripping it of natural oils, that make your hair shiny and healthy looking, the scalp will be producing more oils and become faster greasy. Which brings us to the next point..
~Every day washing can dry out your hair. Most people wash their hair with extreme hot water, that can cause; color to fade, frizz, split ends, less shine, dryness, luck of moisture.. Try to wash with look warm water, or finish it up with cool rinse.
~Few years ago we didn’t care for the ingredients in the ” hair care products”. As long it foams and feels clean, we were fine with it. How do those ingredients effect our hair?
*Sodium Chloride– can cause dry and itchy scalp,and reduce the time of Keratin treatments..
*Sodium Lauryl Sulfate– in long run, can strip essential oils needed for the hair to stay healthy, breaking down protein and halting healthy hair growth, striping the color and drying the hair out.
Polyethelyne Glycol- It can strip hair and skin of natural moisture.
*Parabens– can irritate the skin- which can make your scalp unhealthy- can also affect your hormonal balance, which can result in hair loss.
*Alcohol– can dry your hair and scalp out
*Propylene Glycol– It can irritate the skin, cause allergic reaction.
••This are just few of the ingredients we didn’t know or didn’t care what they are and what they can do, how they effect us. Knowledge is power- decisions to choices is left up to us…
~When we think of balanced diet, we usually don’t think of our hair, but surly it effects it too. To have beautiful hair, your nutrition needs to include plenty of protein, vitamin B, Iron, Omega 3 + additional supplement  vitamins.
